Common Questions

1. How do you usually work with clients?

I believe that environmental and social sustainability will never be achieved without profound, even difficult, changes to our organizations and institutions. I coach on the complex social transformations needed to address problems of changes as well as on interrelated problems such as human resources development, discontent and conflict.

2. What can I expect from the call?

We’re going to be doing a high level analysis on your sustainable project, so we can determine the root issue of what’s NOT working in your project and once we’re both clear on what’s going on there we’ll discuss your goals. And if we determine working together is your best next step toward achieving your goals and solving your root issue in your sustainable project, we’ll talk about that. If it ends up not being a fit, I still point you in the direction of resources that will help you.

3. Who is Astrid Frischknecht?

Astrid started her career as an in-house coach with the Swiss Federal Railways with around 26,000 employees. She worked as a coach in all divisions: passenger transport, infrastructure and freight transport and was responsible for all personnel-related change processes in the entire company. The principle of interdisciplinary cooperation of all employees and the support of their personal development constitute the added value of the integrated railway.

In 2006, she became part of seecon, an international office for sustainable innovation. She has coached more than 3000 hours in change processes and has trained executives and project managers for several years to use different perspectives as a resource in the academic and non-academic sector in Europe. She is familiar with the demands of sustainable development from the perspective of project MANAGERS and leaders of profit enterprises, NPOs, educational institutions, public administration, municipalities and politicians in Switzerland and in rural areas in South Africa, Cameroon, Peru and Nepal.

Leadership was understood as a characteristic inherent in the personality. But leadership needs followers. It arises between people. So it is co-created. The book illuminates co-creation and shows the added value of different perspectives for the common goal.
