About me

About Bernd Koepke

My name is Bernd Koepke. I have been working as an independent coach, consultant and facilitator in Ratingen near Dusseldorf for over 17 years. As a coach I accompany executives, talents and teams through personal and professional changes. As a consultant and facilitator, I bring together people who want to make a difference, develop and transform.

My Mission

True leaders think from the future, take responsibility for themselves and others and create a positive contribution to the bigger picture through their commitment. My mission is to accompany such people in their development to leadership personality and to support them as a coach. I see myself as an experienced companion who also sees himself as a leader and makes his contribution to a better world. My vision is that even more people will become aware of the fact that it is up to them if something is to change for the better. I am convinced that there is something special in every person that wants to be discovered. I have recognized as my gift that I can help leaders and talents to live their passion and fulfill their mission as true leaders.

My Roles

As a systemic coach, I provide coaching and facilitation support for managers, talents and teams who want to develop generatively. Generative means being creative and creating something new. Generative coaching is an innovative approach that provides valuable impulses when taking on a new role in a company, repositioning professionally and transforming individuals, teams and entire organizations. As a Leader Coach, I am a competent companion and sparring partner for managers on their way into the personal, professional and organizational future.

What Clients Say About Me

What clients value in me are, among other things, the following attributes: analytical, empathetic, structured, responsive, demanding and trustworthy.

Here you can find some more quotes about me as a coach:

His way of asking questions and the questioning techniques he uses are impressive.

What I liked about the coaching process was how Mr. Koepke worked with me to develop possible solutions and a repertoire of courses of action. No finished solution was presented. Rather, approaches were practiced and consolidated with me, which help me in different situations. I was practically given a kind of toolbox and learned to use it.

In the coaching process I was particularly helped by the fact that I learned to think things backwards from the goal and to describe important milestones.

My coach understood very well how to analyze and break down the task and give me the tools to deal with challenging situations.

As a coach, Mr. Koepke gave me space without pushing, on the one hand, and on the other hand he helped me to focus and identify the problem to be solved. Through his impulses, I then systematically worked out my own possible solutions as his coachee. He was also always available for me later during the implementation. Clear recommendation!

I have enjoyed the partnership with Mr. Koepke very much. Working with him has changed the way I think and act and has had an extremely positive influence on my professional career up to my current position as Managing Director.
