“I’m passionate about communication and bringing out the best in people. There is nothing more rewarding for me than seeing people becoming more confident and energised, because they have taken on board new techniques to get themselves there.”
“Angelika is a natural enthusiast! You can’t help but feel affected by her good vibe. She leads with ease and has a personality of persuasive authority. I recommend her coaching services highly.” Susan H. Nelson
Angelika’s coaching career started in sports as a teenager and carried through to her professional life as Trainer and Coach in the Banking Academy in her native country, Germany. From Personal Banker to Product Manager to Trainer of the Retail Banking Team, she was then shoulder-tapped by the Banking Academy in Cologne to deliver their national Communication & Sales training courses (www.rwag.de).
In New Zealand her career spans across all three economic sectors: Public (Education), Private (Tourism, Finance) and the Voluntary Sector, where she held the position of Manager for Citizens Advice Bureau. Angelika introduced Seminars for Migrants with great success, helping people from different cultures settle into the Kiwi environment.
Performing in Theatre Plays and Musicals as well as Impromptu Dinner Entertainment Shows has been a life-long passion and a fitting scene to cultivate stage presence and presentation skills. Angelika believes in the power of experiential learning – a main ingredient of her workshops and courses – aka ‘I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.’
Furthering her interest in Human Psychology, Psychodrama, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Non Violent Communication as well as Emotional and Cultural Intelligence have proven invaluable additions to her coaching expertise. Angelika is a NZ and Australia accredited Life Coach and an accomplished Toastmaster and Past President for the Nelson Club, “Madhatters”.
Ongoing Personal Development, be that in practicing Yoga Nidra and Mindfulness, challenging herself to Fire Walking or tackling Public Speaking Competitions show clearly that Angelika likes to lead by example.
“My mission is to enhance Communication & Culture by raising self-awareness and emotional intelligence in people when they are interacting with others.”
