Benefits of CTO Coaching

Making you happier and more successful

In sports and music, every top performer has a coach for best performance. In top management this is not yet common enough, probably you do not have a coach either.

“ I worked with Stephan for over a year. He coached me through a massive growth period of our company, asking the right questions as well as giving constructive advice based on his profound knowledge and experience in the field. He helped me to grow and become the professional I am today. I highly recommend working with him ”

How CTO Coaching can help you

You might ask yourself if you need coaching and someone helping you with your role or you may have already decided you want coaching coming here.My coaching will make you happier and more successful with your job. Your job will be less stressful, and you enable others around you to grow. Taken together this will also make your company more successful.Coaching for technical managers makes most sense for VPs of Engineering and CTOs. You might work in a startup and may have been promoted to the role recently or changed to a larger company where you feel out of your waters. Or you have joined a company with lots of technical debt and open bugs. Startups often do not have adequate training for talents, so I have specialized myself in startups and grownups. As everyone you might face difficult work relationships, you might need to hire and grow your team, the company grows and there are new tasks, there might be a new investment round coming or having been closed and there is always a lot of business

Why choose Stephan

With most coachees coaching sessions are one or two hours a week. In the beginning we focus on current problems and challenges. Coaching gives different viewpoints, solutions I have found to problems and different and more options. After a phase of consulting we shift more towards coaching focusing on you and find out what you want to do and what makes you shine. It helps tremendously when there is someone with whom you can bounce ideas, get feedback before you rollout ideas and to talk to someone who really understands you. You can learn more about me on Linkedin.

On Video around the world ....

Most of my coaching is done on video calls. People have come accustomed to video conferencing and it is no longer a question. Many of my successful coaching relationships or with Zoom.

... or in Berlin.

If you are in Berlin, we can meet in person. Most of my coaching happens during walk and talks - the flow of ideas is great when one walks through parks.
