For more than ten years, Eveline Goodman has prepared individuals to approach challenging tasks with enthusiasm and ability, pushing them to grow beyond their own boundaries. She is trusted not only by international companies and renowned organisations – public figures too rely on her abilities to deliver results.
Eveline Goodman comes from a family of diplomats. She intimately understands the meaning of the words, “between the lines,” drawing on her personal and professional experience of juggling different cultures to see behind the psychological curtains. This background is, however, just the starting point from which she uses her enormous energy to put her ideas and vision into action. She combines her comprehensive academic education (PhDs in Psychology, Neuroscience; degree in Human Resources) with the practical lessons that arise in her life as an internationally-operating businesswoman to deliver success.
Her specialty – and her passion – is connecting talents and options. Eveline Goodman recognises potential, links it to tasks and positions, and takes pleasure in regularly overstepping the boundaries of conventional personnel and management training. For many years, she has lead workshops, presentations, road shows, and coaching sessions for individuals, companies, and organisations from diverse sectors (real estate, medicine, journalism, among others) – both in German and in English. Her charm, wit, and insight make her a memorable, individual, and – if need be – refreshingly undiplomatic consultant.
