Volkmar Koch

Co-founder of heart@work, Senior Advisor, Transformation Expert, Executive Coach, Author

I am Volkmar Koch and the co-founder and managing director of heart@work. I have been working as a senior executive, manager, consultant and executive coach for over 25 years. During this time, I have been a board member of two medium-sized companies, managing director and partner for digitalization in a leading management consultancy, as well as a manager in the finance department of a large corporation.

In these roles, I have led and been (co-)responsible for a great many strategic, cultural, digital and organizational transformation projects and have supported top decision-makers in key endeavours to shape the future of their companies.

I have a degree in business administration and a degree in computer science (FH, ebs) and have continuously furthered my qualifications, including coaching, as a Gestalt consultant and systemic constellation leader. In 2019, my book "Holistic Company" was published, in which I developed a vision for a sustainably successful company in the 21st century, based on a fundamental paradigm shift of its leadership.

scientific findings, in order to not only overcome unconscious fears and blockages, but to

In her trainings, coachings and workshop facilitations, she emphasizes quick and sustainable results, where participants can stay true to themselves instead of being trained to behave in a way that is inappropriate for them.

Katrin holds a degree in business administration, is a systemic-constructivist coach (EBS), certified NLP Master, Wingwave® coach and Mimikresonanz® trainer. She has published several successful books.
