ISC Contributing Fellow
My vision for ISC’s potential:
My grand children will know the ISC as one of the major starting points that unleashed the paramount potentials of the social, political and economic transformation. They also know that the ISC co-hosted innovative spaces for pioneering groups that could not be explained anymore by the theories and agreements their grandfather grew up with.
My recent professional work and key accomplishments:
As a trained international ecosystem and global change manager, I have worked internationally for the past ten years on my graduate studies, the German government, the European Union, the Church, as well as numerous NGO’s and global front-runner companies. I worked on policy, strategic-system dynamics, deep democracy & human empowerment throughout South, Central and North America as well as in most of the EU.
Since 2009 I am a visiting lecturer in the study program «Global Change Management» at the University of Applied Sciences in Eberswalde. I am teaching courses on practices and methods of scientific action-research, psychology of global change agents, Systemic Stakeholder Relationship Management, Ecosynomics and systems thinking. Furthermore I am supervising M.Sc. and B.Sc. thesis projects with the chair of socioeconomics and communication.
Since 2011, I am working as a consultant for IFOK in the areas of strategic-systemic change, Ecosynomics, stakeholder relationship management and system dynamics. The main focus of my projects lies in the intersection of the three sectors. Currently I am facilitating structural change by applying strategic system dynamics in global operating organizations that lead their sector.
My main interests and other voluntary activities:
My full presence is achieved when I am with my Dutch wife and our Mexican daughter Nora-Nayeli. In my free time, I study the interrelations of different professional traditions and I am addicted to George R.R. Martins fantasy epos “A song of ice and fire”. I am a co-founder of a German-Bolivian rural integration NGO and conduct free seminars and workshops such as gender and leadership, collaborative working and team innovation.
