'Future is a space we create, not a room we enter.'
To support people and organizations in deepening self-awareness (searching for the myth - core story -identity), the authentic and impactful sharing of the story and facilitating its transformational development is the core of my activity. B-onfire combines 'the inner fire' (self-connection) with the 'outer fireplace' (the co-creation).
StoryWork or transformational storytelling is building the bridge. My facilitation approach is combining storytelling and narrative methods with process oriented psychology.

My research and authorship combines storytelling and narrative work with process oriented psychology in leadership, facilitation and coaching . In this field I am teaching at various institutes like the HFF (Hochschule für Film und Fernsehen) und ZSFB (Zentrum für Sytemische Forschung und Beratung) and co-initiated the Beyond Storytelling conference, the BST Partner network and a new co-creative training formate The Storygarage.
B-Onfire! Let your stories work! Looking forward to meeting you!

Formate: 1,5- 2 days workshop
Creativity, innovation and transformation are phenomenas – we aim for – in each form of organization. In fact, they emerge out of diversity in groups. Just that, quite often, we fear the ‚difference’ rather than feeling attracted by it. It needs new formats of facilitation to transform tension into collective growth.
Formate: Large group facilitation open forum style or conference design
Inspirational leadership creates stability and people engagement. You may step on stage to on board your team for a new project or you set the scene taking over new responsibilities or you lead the organization through a difficult situation of change and transformation, take a breath ... invest in your story to get it straight, empathic and compelling. It is worth it!
