What is important to me? To appreciate the diversity but also wholeness of every person, non-judgmentally.
Empathy and mindfulness are aspects that need to be (re-)emphasized in social contexts.
"Business as usual" is no longer an option - because:
Turbulent times require new concepts.
"People" and "Culture" have always interested me.
My unlimited curiosity and insatiable passion for that can be professionally & honestly expressed through
my current doing. As a "co-creator" of a culturally sensitive, empathic and mindful climate it is my duty to initiate a constructive engagement with "cultural diversity" and offer new ways of perception, thinking and acting. Doing this, I pursue a holistic approach - regarding people as a unity of body, mind & soul.
Culture, Communication & Mindfulness.
All parts now form a symbiotic whole and simultaneously constitute the foundation of Aroha Consulting.
