Über mich

Based on scientific approaches, I help you make informed decisions about the human resources strategy and the leadership approach you need to build an organization that inspires and grows. My name is Jana and I am from Germany. I am working as a freelancer for various projects and I love the way this brings new perspectives and new challenges every day. My background is in Human Resources, Psychology, and Management. I am pursuing my Ph.D. in organizational behavior in the public sector, so I have an academic perspective on HR topics and strong analytic skills. Even though I believe the scientific perspective is highly valuable, I consider myself a hands-on person, who loves to work in fast-paced industries. I bring 5+ years of experience in operative HR management, particularly in recruitment, and 2 years in business consulting, where I worked as a consultant for organizational behavior, leadership, and cultural transformation. I can hit the ground running and take care of various HR needs. For instance, I work as Interims HR manager for Tech Start-Ups. Currently, I'm working as a Learning Consultant for SkillFull, and I'm also an e-learning author for sparks by Haufe Akademie. With a team of professional psychologists, we break down complex soft skill concepts into bite-sized modules called 'sparks'. Haufe sparks is an app dedicated to Future Skills, offering bite-sized interactive micro-learnings on topics such as creative thinking, empathy and communication within hybrid teams. Since 4 years, I teach a range of courses at different universities, including psychology, statistics, personnel diagnostics, and human resources. This experience not only underscores my commitment to the field but also enables me to bridge the gap between theory and practice, offering my students real-world insights and applications. In addition to my consulting work, I'm a certified transformational coach who specializes in guiding individuals through profound personal and professional transformations. The ultimate goal of my coaching is to facilitate deep learning to create a powerful shift in thinking. I specialize in business and leadership coaching.
