Customer Insights

Deadlines are tough to keep since new requirements are coming in almost daily.
You stumble into difficulties to produce effective results due to permanent capacity overload?
Expectations are high and are causing a lot of pressure.
Internal communication and processes hold you (and the team) back?
Sometimes you could scream out loud since everything takes too much time?
Meetings are inefficient, boring or do not really help?
The agile environment is putting you and your team into more and other issues than expected?

My in-depth customer insights gained through long term roll out projects with practical expertise in project management and customized trainings helped my clients create sustainable, organic change.

My clients are international players having sent me to their sites for training and coaching. We also used state of the art technologies to ease working remotely.

Richard Grillenbeck

Since more than 18 years I have been working in international teams as trainer, project manager, roll out manager and business coach. The pressure, deadlines, high expectations to deliver perfect results in almost no time and also intercultural fun – I had it all. And I stronlgy believe that one can take it if certain conditions are met. That is why I love to work as trainer and coach.

I speak German as my mother tongue and love to talk in English to people coming from many different countries. In France and Italy I can survive understanding the basics.

As a coach I support you in changing. Changing processes, ways of communication, methods of cooperation. To serve my German coaching clients I have written a book together with Jürgen Schimmel: TEMP-Coaching is available in German bookstores and online shops. Visit my blog to read more about it.

As certified trainer I assist you in international training roll outs bringing change and new processes into the teams.

As active member and chapter host of International Coach Federation I pledge to the code of ethics of ICF.


Your training and coaching needs are the driver for developing my competencies for you.

My business coaching is tailored for international teams and IT-professionals since my working career is based on practical experiences in these kinds of environments.

Each team has different structures, roles and processes. Asking the right questions, bringing in my expertise and knowledge assists you and your team to get the results you, your team and both internal and external customers want. You will find solutions for maintaining mutual respect and effective collaboration with each other.

As a business coach I understand that we live in a volatile, uncertain, complex and amiguous world. Working on both individual and team level reinforces strength, power and engagement of all involved parties.

Coaching your team creates smooth processes, better and deeper connections between team members and the neccessary changes implemented to bring the team to the next level of cooperation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of the markets I have served include healthcare, telecommunications, engineering services, distance education/ e-learning, sport clothing, insurance, and consulting.

I am proud of my ability to learn the fundamentals of virtually any industry or technology quickly. Having said that, I believe that the value I bring to the table is not industry expertise — which you already possess in abundance — but rather an understanding of what coaching clients need and what training roll outs profit from.

Coaching sessions that provide action, results and also fun. With my profound education you can rely on serious and sensitive coaching. Looking at my expertise in global training roll outs and CRM projects you can trust my competencies for a successful change in our organization.

Every coaching is unique. However, some fairly common steps include the following:

  • Initial discussion to understand your basic needs (no cost for you, just bring openess and some time)
  • Set the contract (usually 5-10 coaching sessions)
  • Get-to-know session (approx 1,5 h) to clarify your values, goals and other relevant information
  • Coaching sessions – your actions between the sessions are more important, though
  • Coach you your preferred way to reach the desired goals
  • Provide ongoing support, including emaila and phone calls at no additional charge.

Depending on how we structure the coaching, you should expect to spend 5-10 hours in coaching sessions and then work the same or more amount of time on your homework and actions between the sessions over the course of a typical engagement.
