Developing People with Professionalism and Passion 

Ute Franzen-Waschke - Your Coach

I am 49 years old and I am currently based in Northern Germany. 13 years ago I started my own business as a Communication Skills expert, working with individuals and groups on various aspects of communication, relationships and intercultural issues in organizational settings. 

In 1987 my professional career started in the Finance Department of an American company located close to the Dutch and Belgian border.

15 years later I had collected more international experience by working for two more global players in different positions and departments (e.g. HR, Quality, Sales, Manufacturing, etc.).

Since 2012 I have been active as a coach in the corporate world trained by Kim Morgan and her amazing team at Barefoot Coaching, UK. I hold a PG Certificate with the University of Chester, UK, and in summer 2016 I was awarded the title Master of Arts in Coaching and International Business Communications (WBIS) also with the University of Chester, UK. The focus of my thesis was on how to improve communication and collaboration behaviour in multi- and cross-cultural teams. For this, I created a coaching intervention, the “Explore Us Tour”.

In 2016 I graduated as one of the first C-IQ Enhanced Skills Coaches in Germany in Judith E. Glaser’s body of work: Conversational Intelligence®. At the end of 2016 I became "Certified in Conversational Intelligence®" and with that special qualification I have even more possibilities and C-IQ tools to include in my coaching practice. 

Conversational Intelligence® is based on Neuroscience Research specifically the Neuroscience of Conversations. C-­IQ provides a deep understanding about how every conversation has an impact, ­and as we learn about our conversational patterns, we are able to ‘Architect, deconstruct, and shape our conversations with others, one conversation at a time!’ 

Conversational Intelligence® shows us as well what patterns drive connectivity and trust, and what patterns drive fear and distrust; and enables us to connect, engage, navigate and co­-create with others in healthy ways. Conversational Intelligence® elevates Oxytocin, the chemistry of connection; and lowers Cortisol, the chemistry of fear and distrust. Understanding the Neuroscience of Conversations and applying this wisdom inside of companies transforms individuals, teams and organizations ­and opens up new pathways for mutual success.

My Coaching Philosophy
  • People are different, thus coaching is custom-tailored to the individual needs of the client.
  • I will respond to my clients with unconditional positive regard
  • I will treat any information shared during the coaching sessions and/or in between the sessions (emails, phone calls, observations, etc.) as strictly confidential.
  • I will help the individual to develop in a positive sense and to build on his or her natural strengths.
  • I will help the client to focus on the goals he or she chooses.
  • I will help identify solutions and provide new perspectives.
  • I have a variety of styles; skills and techniques that will help the client to unleash his or her potential.

Coaching in this way enables individuals to move towards achieving their specific personal and business aims, and thus to improve their performance both at work and in private situations.



What is coaching?

According to Sir John Whitmore “Coaching for Performance”
“Coaching is unlocking a person’s potential to maximize their own performance. It is helping them to learn rather than teaching them”
