In my early studies I got inspired to help people to learn with joy, to experience new things and broaden their horizon. My focus on systems theory and behavioral management was the spark that lit my way. This is the vision I carried with me for the past 20+ years, travelling many times around the world, to help organizations (and people) to foster empowerment, skill and competency development, to lead positive and successful transformation initiatives. I keep saying that the talent function has to follow a holistic approach: from hiring to strategic business model transformation initiatives it is what can and should support every business function in the organization to be successful.
As a leadership coach and trainer as well as instructional design architect I have specialized in learning technologies and experience based learning: so that learning is not another „to do“ but seamlessly, playfully, positively integrates in the workflow and creates sustainable measurable output.
After passing the classical studies of psychology and many years of therapeutic practice in the clinical field Marc Heim turned towards business and corporate psychology.
During more than 10 years of self-employment he contributed his competences to national as well as international organizations among other things in the areas of:
- Management and executive assessment
- Leadership, team and organizational development
- Change Management and cultural development
- Talent Management and Succession Planning
- Coaching and Resource Management
- Strategic Innovations Management.
Futhermore, with his long and broad experience he assumed the position as Head Corporate Management Development in an international organization. These activities covered the European, Chinese and Indian area. Moreover, with his additional degree in Strategic Innovations Management he successfully completed also Agil Deveopment and Agile Leadership projects.
Following, Marc Heim returned to being self-employed and dedicated himself to focusing on the topic of New Work. In general, it means a lot to Marc Heim to contribute new impetus to economic growth and progress.
Attitude as a topic in the personal and organizational change processes grabbed me very early on. The related issues of sustainable conflict resolution, group dynamic processes, leadership versus leadership, appreciative and open communication, relationship management, transparency, self-efficacy and resilience also inspire me in the most diverse ways.
For the reason that all these topics are closely linked to my own learning process, I have been inspired to work on and with lifelong learning in the context of companies, organizations, schools and universities. My common thread is working with people and the processes that proceed in the background. The human being in focus - as an individual as well as in groups. In situations in which much seems impossible, I would like to provide perspectives on where the journey may continue and support people as well as organizations in their change processes. My seven languages have taken me to different places in the world, where I have lived and experienced how differently cultures deal with these issues, which are relevant for appreciative and sustainable coexistence.
My work in a large corporation, at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, at a high school as well as an additional study program of organization and personnel development and a coaching training support me decisively in accompanying these processes.
Among other things, the following questions inspire me:
- How can people discover their self-efficacy in order to remain capable of action and solution-oriented - as an individual as well as within a group?
- To what extent is transparency and role clarity relevant for teamwork and within the overall organization in order to enable constructive collaboration?
- How can organizational upheavals be shaped in an appreciative and sustainable way?
- What forms of communication and conflict resolution do we want to work with in an organization or company in order to remain able to work?

In the search of a better understanding of herself and the environment Sabine Werner encountered a coloful world of highly gifted, sensitive, emotional, multi-talented and scanners. When she realized that she was dearly part of that, lots of seemingly loosely coupled puzzle parts connected and thereby enriched and explained her life.
When she accompanies people in their development, she always starts where they are and accompanies them in a solution-oriented and always holistic way. A path of self-acceptance and conscious realignment of their personality, as well as the recognition and acceptance of their gifts and abilities.
After a commercial education she went into software development and via project management and data protection she found her way into coaching. Today she works as a project coach, systemic business coach and emTrace emotion coach.
The positive "light impulses" serve as a counterweight to an increasingly noisy world and for introspection. Thought-provoking impulses accompany change processes, give courage and direct the perspective to other topics, podcasted as impulses on our website.

One wrong step, whilst hiking, turned Sebastian Wächter's fate. He fell and broke his neck.
