Meet your systemic and leadership coach Greta Seeger

 

As a systemic coach with over 14 years of experience in problem-solving, I am dedicated to guiding individuals, entrepreneurs, and teams through transformative journeys worldwide. I have had the privilege of supporting hundreds of clients in enhancing both their personal lives and businesses.

Throughout my career, I have collaborated with renowned global companies and founded successful ventures of my own. It’s been my honor to share insights as a frequent keynote speaker and lecturer at esteemed institutions like Harvard University Extension School and Business School ESCP Europe in London. In these roles, I’ve taught courses on Design Thinking, Social Impact Innovations, and Personal Transformation & Leadership within the MSc in Digital Transformation Management & Leadership program.

My coaching approach is personalized and based on my education as a certified systemic coach and focuses on personal development, career advancement, entrepreneurship, and corporate leadership. I invite you to explore my coaching philosophy and approach further below.

One particularly exciting project that has recently resurfaced in relevance is a process and workshop format I developed and conducted at Kunsthaus Zurich. I was honored to be invited by Ahmet Öğüt to participate in a group exhibition alongside Yoko Ono. Led by the central question I posed was: “What would you do if there was a basic income and your passion became your daily job?”

I have a Bachelor’s degree from University of the Arts in Berlin where I studied Communication in Social and Economic Contexts (GWK) and hold a double degree Master of Science from ESCP Business School London & Berlin (Master in European Business (MEB) became the MBA in International Management).

I am certified Design Thinking Coach from d.school / Hasso Plattner Institute in Potsdam, Germany and I am a certified Systemic Coach from HMKW University of Applied Sciences for Media, Communication and Management in Berlin.

FOR STARTUPS: Mentoring and Coaching  

As a seasoned startup mentor and coach, I have had the privilege of guiding numerous entrepreneurs through their startup journeys. With experience as a mentor at Startupbootcamp in Berlin and currently with NRW ScaleUp Accelerator, as well as serving as a startup mentor for Cortugli Business School, I specialize in providing tailored support to startups. Leveraging my background as an entrepreneur and leadership coach, I bring expertise in startup strategies and methodologies, empowering startups to navigate challenges and achieve sustainable growth.

My contribution to Scale Up NRW Startup Accelerator

greta seeger nrw scale up accelerator

Behind the expansion of every successful start-up is a crucial but often overlooked element: the personal change of the managers. As a dedicated coach and mentor at Scale-up.NRW, I have had the honor of experiencing first-hand the transformative power of personal change during the turbulent times of business growth.

The role of personal change in company growth

When a start-up sets off for unexplored horizons, the leadership must be prepared to undergo a profound metamorphosis. The old adage “as above, so below” holds true – as the company evolves, its leaders must also change. Personal change is not just a by-product of growth, but a strategic necessity to keep the ship on course for success.

Navigating unfamiliar terrain

In times of corporate growth, managers often find themselves in unfamiliar territory and face challenges that require new skills and perspectives. Coaching serves as a compass that guides leaders through the stormy seas of change and helps them find a course that balances personal growth and corporate success.

How can leaders cultivate more adaptability and resilience?

Adaptability is the key to survival in the ever-changing start-up landscape. Leaders need to cultivate a resilient mindset that sees change not as a threat, but as an opportunity. Through coaching and mentoring, we at Scale-up.NRW work to develop the mental strength needed to weather storms and emerge stronger.

“As a program manager, the importance of mentoring cannot be overstated. In the turbulence of the entrepreneurial journey of a startup founder and their team, coaching is not just a guide, but an anchor that provides stability and wisdom as leaders navigate uncharted territories. The magic sauce of our experts is that they help you navigate without hidden agendas.” Thomas Schier, Sr. Program Manager of Scale-up.NRW

Ambition and self-confidence in balance

The pursuit of ambitious business goals must be balanced with a keen awareness of personal values and mental and physical well-being. Mentoring sessions become a sanctuary for self-reflection for leaders to ensure they stay true to themselves as they drive their startups forward.

Promoting a growth mindset

Start-up leaders need to foster a growth mindset and view challenges not as obstacles, but as opportunities to learn and improve. Coaching and mentoring become the crucible in which this mindset is forged and leaders are molded into resilient and forward-thinking captains.In the unpredictable journey of startup growth, personal change is not just a prerequisite, but the very essence of progress.

As a coach and mentor, I support start-up leaders and teams and help them to weather the storms of transformation. Together with Scale-up.NRW, we ensure that as a startup’s leaders and team sail through the waves of growth, they develop not only as professionals, but also as individuals whose personal transformation is closely interwoven with their company’s success story. If you are steering a start-up through the exciting yet challenging phase of growth, then you should consider joining the new cohort of Scale-up.NRW. Let’s embark on this journey together, where personal change becomes the wind in your sails, propelling your leadership and your startup to new horizons.
