Job Level of staff coached : Executives , Sector Executives, Department Heads, Sales and market Supervisors
Coaching Methods : Active discussion, self-exploration, psychological methods, focused interviews


Stress management, staff motivation, cost pressures and communication with and within teams are right at the top of the agenda in every activity. In “the real world of business”, executives are often stretched to the limits(or beyond?) of their physical and mental capabilities… which has a major impact on their leadership behaviour and
job satisfaction.
The use of knowledge about emotional intelligence leads …
…to optimal co-operation within the management team
…to skilful leadership in complex structures 
…to acceptance of management decisions and their faster implementation both internally and externally
Effective teams will then develop quickly if empathy is present: 
Staff feelings are respected and skilfully used in decision-making. People with well-developed social skills tend to be at the centre of an extensive communication network.
The individual Coaching of the Manager must aim to give him the freedom to be himself and to overcome the obstacles that may restrict him.
To achieve this, the coach acts as a “MIRROR” allowing the manager to get to know himself better and to go more effectively where he really wants to go. 
At the same time, the coach is a “FACILITATOR” who helps to discover the brakes that hold him back, and then becomes a “MIDWIFE” who helps solutions to emerge on the basis of the manager’s own capabilities. 
Finally, he becomes a “CO-PILOT” who helps the manager clarify his ideas as well as define and test the parameters of change.
Dr.Oehler actively involves his clients in these development processes in order to ensure knowledge transfer and enhance the problem solving and project management skills of the staff.
