Just look at the trousers he is wearing…

"How do I want to be with myself and others?" is a question I regularly encourage my coachees to ask themselves. At the top of the list of answers is: calm. This is hardly surprising, given that my clients' nerves are frayed by their superiors, customers, delivery bottlenecks and, for the last almost [...]

Of genitals and stories

"Do you have a favorite female surfer?" my surfing buddy Yannick asked me a few years ago. "Carissa Moore," I replied like a shot. "But she surfs like a man!" Yannick countered. So? What does that mean: surfing like a man? Or like a woman? And who defines that? Women's issues in general [...]

1999 – or the narcissist in me!

"Ms. Keromosemito, in your opinion, is Mr. M. a narcissist?" Mr. O., the managing director of a mechanical engineering company, asked me the other day. Together we were preparing a conflict facilitation with Mr. M., his works council chairman. I had already met Mr. M. personally, but had not found him to be conspicuous. "What makes you say [...]

The Star Authority

"What did you learn from corona?" is a question currently being asked by many HR experts on LinkedIn & Co. Always take away something positive, seems to be the motto for those working from home. I can easily keep up with that, although unlike for many coaches, for me the whole thing has [...]

My boss is a jerk – how do I get rid of him?

What do I do if the management behaves in a way that completely goes against our corporate values?" asked Stefan, a retail manager, during one of my recent seminars. He did not wait for an answer, but continued – "In seemingly never-ending meetings we talk about how we are to act in the [...]

Latin lesson for leaders

"How can we improve our meeting culture?" – I am asked on a pretty regular basis. Meetings – nobody likes them. Everyone thinks there are too many of them. They rarely bring the desired results. Some meetings are even downright unpleasant. At the end of a coaching session a few weeks ago, Mr. O., [...]

About winners and losers

"Ms. Keromosemito, what do you think makes people successful?" When I am asked this question, I often have the impression that the person asking is looking for the magic formula for success. I don't have it, but I read a lot and hoped to find the answer in Simon Sinek’s huge bestseller "Start with [...]

Call me Kaa and trust in me!

“Can you run 10 workshops for us by the end of the year on the topic of trust?” a technology group asked me last August. On the one hand, for an independent trainer like me, jobs as large as these are similar to winning the jackpot. On the other hand, fall is a very [...]

It’s just an ocean experience

“Do you also offer training sessions just for women?” – I get asked on a regular basis. No, I do not. It does not make any sense to me that women (apparently) lead differently than men or that different rules apply to their careers than to those of their male counterparts. Recently, however, [...]
