Conscious leadership with a purpose

both PROFESSIONaL and human

When I speak to you, I do so not only on a professional (leader, project leader, Director, politician etc) but also a human level.

Your role requires the highest professionalism.

While the future simultaneously sets out bold challenges to refine your human qualities.

When you are really present, can act and lead from a place of an authentic and strong self and self -consciousness, the effect you have on any future professional and personal transformation increases.

If you have the feeling, that

  • your core human capabilities cannot be substituted by any technology
  • and that these capabilities are RIGHT NOW guiding your leadership style,

Then I will happily support you, on your journey to take this human potential to a new level.

The concrete instrument that is tof me at the centre of a future oriented leadership is the

resonant listening – the core listening

In times of uncertainty, change, and culture of ambiguous information, an unbiased way of listening and understanding are decisive transformational factors for you and for your organization (organisation = British English, organization = American English) 

RESONANTES listening - Core listening - A leadership tool for a sustainable transformation

is a key skill for perceiving signs of transformation in time, for leaning into this change and consciously including it into future development in regards to:

  • yourself,
  • others – colleagues, partners, stakeholders –
  • Ecosystems (nature, global contexts und organizations)
  • ... and to the yet unknown


rEvolution is always taking place on all levels::
  • in relation to oneself
  • in relation to others
  • in relation to ecosystems and the whole

When brought together cohesively, individual processes of development begin to make sense, bring clarity and get to the core of what is waiting to be done NOW.

Transformation is no longer just an empty buzz word but becomes a powerful and coherent dynamic.

The Logo - mY KEY THEME

In 2011, when I decided to set up my own business as a coach and trainer this logo found me. It represents the key theme of my own personal and professional development.

This sign, the Chinese XIN and the japanese KOKORO expresses the meanings that our western words would translate into something like:




If there is someone capable of delivering information in a unique way, a natural gifted person who can blend teams together from the first session, you are looking at her "Maria Kaplan". In addition to all that, she is passionate about what she does and it was obvious during the course I attended with her. She has a seamless way to deal with the participants, which helped us go through this course easily. There are some people you can't forget and she is definitely one special trainer and coach I won't be forgetting. Thank you dear Maria for the wonderful experience you offered me.
