Leadership Coaching

Leadership starts with leading yourself

Why? The leading question! We get to the bottom of this question. This is often not a thought rather a feeling. From this feeling we create your entrepreneurial vision and long-term strategy. This is the basis for your compass, with which you can consistently guide yourself and others. My responsibility as a guide is to lead you through uncomfortable questions and silence to towards deep insights. Insights that will move your world. Insights that will lead to important decisions that change your mindest and therefore your company. With small steps of change and perseverance, this results in exponential growth: from inner joy to the unleashing potential and creating authentic meaning.

For most people, a goal is a place to get to. What changes if it is “a place to come from”? Then the goal is a compass and guides you as a waymarker: My waymarker reads: authentically co-creating joy!

Your Coach

Martin Frederik Garbers

As a coach I accompany entrepreneurs and executives on the path of personal development. I am equipped for this with the analytical-technical numerical reasoning of an industrial engineer, leadership experience through many years as CFO, who knows how to examine business models. As a trained and certified coach, I also bring my empathic and methodical skills to bear, enabling me to approach my clients with confidence and commitment and to guide them in their further development with an independent view from the outside.

More important than thinking for me is sensing! It needs a strong NO to be able to say a big YES! For this realization I have walked two million steps to the end of the world. At the end of the Saint-James-Way in Finisterre I did not know what I would do next. When I asked myself: Am I going back to the corporate world? my body had a clear answer: NO! From thereon I was able to follow my own path and am building a strong YES on the clear NO.

“Play your game, and don’t play any other game” is one of my guiding principles. According to my conviction and experience, if you follow your inner-compass life will arrange it self authentic joie de vivre in business activities. I accompany my clients on the path, creating security, with an eye on the essential. Powerful and moving at the same time, intuitively and measurably towards joy.

Is the path easy? NO! But it is worth it and if it is done step by step with a guide any path becomes simple.

Skills

Requirement

I expect my clients to have the courage to go their own way. On the way there are obstacles, like the fear of change. My clients bring the willingness to face this!

To make this possible, we create a strong coaching agreement, which creates commitment, enables directness and is the basis for clear communication. For me coaching is: leadership!

Conviction

I am convinced that a healthy business existence is based on human sustainability and inner fire that wants to burn. Inner growth always occurs when the passion for your own potential can regain the upper hand, when your entrepreneurial creativity inspires the people around you – and thus presents both the company and your own vision in a new light. “Lead yourself and others! As in small things so in large things” Together we will consistently follow this path.

Procedure and scope

For me, coaching is a constant process of change. It needs time and endurance. Therefore I only coach long and deep with a clear agreement.

How and where? Both in the open air and on the flipchart in my studio, we work with targeted structural elements such as financial indicators to make visions measurable. Leadership coaching is a 1:1 appointment for your development with an outside view, therefore not in your company. My coaching sessions are designed for the long term. Only through a continuous process do insights and change emerge.

Cocreate joy of life

I challenge my clients to go beyond their comfort zone of competence, because growth is only possible at the edge of the competence zone. Wherever it is a little exciting and uncomfortable, joy of life can be created authentically from not being there.

I am a trained and certified coach, have many years of resilient experience in the areas of finance and controlling and am equipped with intuition, feeling and energy for the further development of people. My heart is opened when I can experience clients rediscovering their true calling in a joyful and powerful way.

Growth according to Fibonacci principle

In nature, healthy growth takes place from the inside out, often following the principle observed by Leonardo de Fibonacci. I also use this principle in my coaching sessions. Each step in development, whether personal or corporate, builds on its predecessor, but there is always a change of direction, so that the spiral grows evenly from the inside out.

This principle is reflected in my logo. The healthy growth is the golden spiral and the blue lines serve as a construction aid. Ideally the coaching interventions are only a construction aid, because the actual growth usually takes place between the coachings. Once you have internalized the principle, you can easily take the next steps yourself.

Success Stories

REFERENCES

As the sole founder, it seemed to me at first that everything was going too far. Martin recognized my blind spots and my talents in no time and was able to help me regain my energy so quickly. Today, I am a happy, stable entrepreneur who is able to keep her cool so quickly. Thanks to Martin’s support, I have developed professionally, especially in the areas of personnel management, controlling and company values. I have also grown personally through Martin’s coaching and have now become a new mother. With a perfectly fitting team that lives the company values, the combination of motherhood and entrepreneurship is also possible with a clear conscience and for this I thank Martin from the bottom of my heart.

Isabella, Managing Director, personal agency

​After years in strategy consulting it was important to me to find my own style and way. Martin helps me with this as an external sparring partner, who taxes important impulses for my decisions. I have developed a clear vision for my professional and private goals and needs and I consistently adhere to it. This enables me to make decisions faster, sometimes based on gut feeling – and I can always check whether I am still on the right track. Coaching with Martin helps me to realize much more of my potential. Over time, I have found out that in my job it is similar to what I do in sports. The more I  work on myself, the more progress I can make.

Max, Managing Director, Real Estate Development

When I was promoted to division manager, my biggest challenge was to change my focus from the operational business to my role as a leader: to become effective through my employees instead of doing it myself.  Already in the first intensive coaching session I was able to gain important insights for me and my new leadership role. Martin instructed me to work out a target picture for one year and to derive from it the essential steps that we worked out together during the year. With these new insights, I decided to deploy independent teams with team leaders and to concentrate more on leading the teams. This restructuring has given my department an important motivational boost with the newly formed independent teams, which has also triggered a growth spurt. Martin gave me practical tools from the book “Leading Simple”. It was almost even more important to question old patterns and develop new creative solutions each time. Even if I should not reach the “impossible goal”, it is simply a pleasure to fill it with life every day. My leadership is now clearer and much more effective than before.

Stephan, division manager, security and access control systems

With his business background, I was very open to ask Martin to help me with issues of professional and personal development. I expected a structured and procedural approach in the support. What I experienced was a heart-filled person who took me by the hand at eye level to lead me to answers that I could not have given myself. As a result, Martin regularly supports me to lift my mental fog and surprises me with his sensitivity and leadership. He is, in short, an outstanding coach, person and now also friend.

more testimonials

Martin fulfills exactly everything I want from a first-class business coach. He is himself an experienced manager, advisor, sparring partner, and people person. He sees details and the big picture. I have been working with him for more than a year in regular sessions. In the process, I have come closer to my personal development goals in rapid steps. Sometimes with amazing methods. Sometimes because he simply makes you aware of the obvious. I can highly recommend Martin as a business coach.

Jonas, Managing Director, media agency

Martin Garbers has the ability like no other to penetrate complex situations and, by asking specific questions, to find new, decisive pieces of the puzzle, from which a surprising overall picture then emerges.

Dirk, Fellow R&D, Hi-Tech-Industry

Martin Garbers has a fine feeling for his counterpart. His structured approach and his questions to the point led convincingly and quickly to the goal during a coaching session.

Jörn, entrepreneur, PR/Marketing

The coaching enables to recognize the essential even in complex situations. After a coaching session, the solution to a problem that I have been thinking about for a long time appears crystal clear. It helps me to make decisions and to become a little bit better every day in what I do.

Thomas, CFO, Electrical Engineering

As a mentor coach of the Munich Academy for Business Coaching, I experienced Martin as an empathic sparring partner at eye level, who, by asking the right questions, had brought me from a position of self-doubt into a self-reflective, positive basic mood, in which I was able to approach new solutions with motivation. In addition, I was able to get good impulses for my own coaching style, which had already helped me very well in many situations. All in all, Martin was able to help me make a significant leap forward in my personal development and give me the necessary energy to change even complex issues, outside my own comfort zone.

Dietmar, senior executive, automotive supplier

A forward-looking coaching that covers the areas of heart and mind. Martin Garbers has worked very intensively on my specific roles as an entrepreneur and private person. The coaching was trend-setting and gave me a lot of confidence in the future development of the company.

Georg, Managing Director, construction supplier

After about one year of individual and team coaching with Martin I draw the following conclusion: I have achieved all my goals defined at the beginning of the coaching! Therefore it was very clear to me that I would like to extend the coaching with Martin. Each coaching session with Martin helps me to see my role as an entrepreneur and my long-term life vision more clearly. Each coaching session results in a series of new insights and tangible to-do’s, which significantly accelerate my personal development as an entrepreneur and help me to identify and successfully overcome hurdles that currently hold me back. I am very grateful to Martin for his help and hope that we can continue to work together so successfully.

Bakir, entrepreneur, Music Industry

Martin combines two qualities that could not be more perfect: The methodical numbers man and the sensitive soul man. He thus succeeds in making me look not only at business-relevant topics, but also at what lies beneath. Because that is where the unconscious pitfalls for my personal success are anchored. After about 12 years as a self-employed person, I wanted the change from self-employed person to entrepreneur. Martin understood immediately how I meant it and what feeling I associate with it. He creates a framework in which my thoughts and feelings get structure and thus quickly become realizable ideas and measures. Already after a very short time I have taken huge steps forward. Thank you Martin – I am looking forward to the further common way.
