die mich in meiner Arbeit erlebt haben

What makes Maria Kaplan's coaching so unique is her high level of professionalism combined with great attentiveness. I felt I was both looked after as a professional and holistically taken care of as a person. This enabled me to develop the best in myself.

Since my first coaching with Maria Kaplan, my life has very much changed for the better: with her help, I have been able to articulate my goals, deal openly and profoundly with any doubts and make clear decisions. She helped me to combine two seemingly irreconcilable concerns that lay close to my heart (professional development to serve wider society and being an actively involved mother to my children) and thus embark on a path of holistic personal development.

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.

I was again and again in admiration of how quickly you managed to go deep and really get to and work on the crux of the matter. Your methods combined with your keen mind shone a light on certain aspects that suddenly became as clear as day and natural. Fog and darkness in certain areas were able to dissolve or at the very least became less.

Your professional nature, coupled with your warm heart and empathy, meant I felt that I was in very good hands and was able to open up and communicate. I also very much appreciated your patience.

Your professionalism and how quickly your understood me, as well as your deep understanding of processes, are definitely among your strengths. The space that you provide for challenging and difficult journeys feels very safe. This sense of trust is in turn combined with a lightness of touch.

Conversation brought a conscious unstanding and ability to explain the background to the situation I was experiencing. Through this conversation I was able to being the phase to an end – and its ongoing burden has subsequently disappeared.

I was shown how I can play an active part in bringing the situation to a close, without having to surpress it, unresolved. I am hopeful that this this lived experience won’t re-emerge at a later date. The atmosphere inspired trust and was very calm.

You are very empathic, while also being able to maintain a professional distance. This allowed you to guide the conversations in a way that enabled me to reach results, despite my feeling tense emotionally. I felt no sense of confusion afterwards, i.e. the sense I had found more questions than answers. By professional distance, I don’t mean cool detachment, but the ability to speak with a clear mind and to break down the complex web of the situation I was experiencing.

Maria and I crossed paths when we were both working for the same company.

At that time she was my supervisor and training to become a coach. When she came up with the topics of coaching and staff development, I was initially on my guard and very critical of this new idea being proposed. I had the feeling that someone was trying to squeeze me into a precast mould so that I would conform to a desired ideal to serve the company as effectively as possible. Maria recognised this scepticism and with her warm and caring manner and methods, guided me at my own pace through the stumbling blocks that, in hindsight, I see I had always unconsciously put in my own way.

She has given me the freedom to decide what I want to change and what is ok to stay as it is. The initial fear of "I am here to be improved or optimised" has developed into a journey towards myself. Today I can say that the coaching methods Maria used with me opened doors and gave me opportunities for development that I had not even suspected existed. Recognising my own value, developing understanding for myself and others, gives me an inner quiet and the desire to continue this journey. Dear Maria, thank you for broadening my perspective and accompanying me on this path.

The collaboration with Maria was easy, Maria tailored the workshop to suit my team and was extremely flexible addressing my wishes. Maria was encouraging and wanted the best outcome for the time allocation. She was extremely professional and executed in a dynamic way,  was consultative, flexible and committed to supporting my desires. Maria has the ability to connect with a diverse group of people (culture, genders, age, etc) ensuring the connection to all participants. Most importantly, post the workshop i had a number of consults to “check in” to assess the progress. For Maria, her interest doesn’t stop at the end of the workshop, she is driven to see the ongoing improvements for my team and I.

Ich habe viel von ihr gelernt insbesondere in Bezug auf Projektmanagement, Zeitmanagement, Teamentwicklung, Leadership und Kommunikation. Maria hat mir geholfen, meine persönlichen und beruflichen Fähigkeiten zu stärken. Ich möchte sie sehr empfehlen. Ich schätze deine phantastische Arbeit, Maria!”

Ich war total begeistert von deiner Unterstützung - wir haben so auf einer sonst nicht so erreichbaren Ebene selber Kontakt aufgenommen zu unserem Projekt. Ja, irgendwie waren wir eben einfach mit dem Herzen dabei.

Die Art und Weise mit Themen umzugehen finde ich toll bei diesem Core-Coaching (das du nach meinem Eindruck ziemlich gut beherrschst) UND dann ist die Effizienz krass... man kommt in Tiefen, zu denen man sonst nur schwer Zugang hätte - und das in einem Tempo!!!

Es war fordernd und total bereichernd!

Ich werde dafür stimmen, dich immer wieder mit ins Boot zu holen.

I was absolutely enthused by your support - we got in touch with our project on an otherwise unaccessible level. I suppose, we simply put our hearts into it.

I thought, the way Core Coaching Method deals with topics was excellent (and in my opinion you master it rather well!) AND then its effectiveness is obvious ... depth were reached that would otherwise be hard to access. And all that so quickly!!!

It was demanding and absolutely rewarding.

I will always support bringing you back on board in the future.

“Maria war meine Trainerin bei einem sehr interessanten Projektmanagement Training. Abgesehen von dem tollen Training hat sie mich sogar nach dem Kurs unterstützt, was für meine tägliche Arbeit sehr wertvoll war. Ich denke, dass sie genau verstanden hat, was ich gebraucht habe und dass sie mir entsprechend Empfehlungen und Unterstützung geben konnte.”

“Maria was my trainer during a very interesting Project Management training. Apart from a great training she supported me even after the course which had a valuable impact on my daily work. I think she perfectly understood what I needed and could provide recommendations and help accordingly.”
Doris Beckmann
Product Manager for Education Management, Siemens Healthineers

Maria managed to do two quite remarkable things when she led our workshop. Firstly, she got us asking the right types of questions. To begin with we were mainly concerned with what we wanted. Thanks to Maria, we realised that it is more about the greater vision and drive we work under and how we can use our strengths to help with that. Which brings us to the second point: Maria helped us establish a deep connection with our own inner beings and resources. The conversation took on a completely different quality, an incredible depth and authenticity. I felt much better connected with myself and with the others and therefore ultimately also with our common vision. Our creative energy reached a completely different level as a result of the workshop.

Maria's way of working was completely new to me and almost a little alienating. But I quickly realised how much power it unleashes with the kinesiological testing. The questions she detected took us out of our comfort zones and broadened our view of the bigger picture. Maria was incredibly warm and sensitive, and reacted to the energy in the room. I can't imagine we would have gone home feeling nearly as optimistic and positively recharged that day without her help. We were all very, very grateful to her for that.

Maria was my trainer during a learning programm organized by my company some months ago. I appreciated a lot her way of communicating with the people, both during the training sessions and the free time. She is very professional but also empathetic, making us always feel comfortable, keeping the interest of the class always high, giving precious tips, using a very positive and proactive approach in a multicultural environment.

Maria war meine Trainerin während eines Programms, das von meinem Unternehmen vor ein paar Monaten organisiert wurde. Ich habe ihre Art, mit den Leuten zu kommunizieren sehr geschätzt, sowohl während der Training Sessions als auch in der Freizeit. Sie ist sehr professionell aber auch empathisch, man fühlt sich mit ihr wohl, und sie gestaltet die Sitzungen immer interessant, gibt uns hilfreiche Tips und wendet einen sehr positiven und proaktiven Ansatz in einem multikulturellen Umfeld an.

Maria is a very a professional coach. I was lucky to be coached by her during PM4 Project Management training. She helped me a lot for improving my communication skills and in how to handle different cultures, managing difficult situations and how to be a team leader. Mainly, I had a the opportunity to understand, develop and practice communication skills, conflict management, leadership styles and how to adapt from case to case. She knows a lot about soft skills which i am yet to know and i am looking forward to meet her again in another training in the near future. She deserves my highest recommendation! And I wish her all the best in her career !

I participated in the down-time session because I like to try new things and I thought you looked like you’d do a great job of it.

One thing I found really helpful was how – with the right questions - I was able to feel very connected with complete strangers...that was completely new for me.

The way you facilitated the session was a real asset. The the two of you were fully involved in the group as leaders...that was really good.

I still think about the things and inner wishes we discussed - a few times a week...and I think I can focus on them even more.

I think such a retreat can only have advantages and I thought it was absolutely fantastic!

A big thank you again to you and Susa!

Yes, I believe this is a good exercise to get more appreciation of the people and understand better why they react the way they do and why they say things. 

I liked the card game as it enables me to reflect on some situations and be more aware of myself and my stengths or weaknesses.

It was just really good! It was entertaining but intensive, very funny yet incredibly informative. Both days I came home with a real grin on my face. Many thanks for that!

Very good input on collaborative teamwork, that could be put into practice straight away. I was able to get to know my colleagues really well, in a caring and fun, playful way. Everyone had enough time to show and express themselves. The storytelling was great!

"There is a sense of freedom in the goal that can be achieved with you. I can look back on the path I have taken and appreciate it. I also see the way ahead of me and know that I have what it takes to follow it. Because clarity and self-confidence have developed in me, and thanks to you, they are no flash in the pan but are resources that I can fall back on time and again. To have achieved my goal with you as a coach means to have developed respect for the path - my path. Understanding of the potholes and seeming diversions. And trust. Not just in my abilities, but in life itself."

These informal and integrating methods offer up the chance to improve team building and teamwork by allowing everyone, regardless of their work role, to bring to the group and express their own point of view on different topics. This creates an enriching and lively exchange. This exercise also helps people to become aware of their own strengths and skills and how to use them to take new innovative steps – both personally and professionally. My energy level at the end of the exercise was great. I felt positive, calm and inspired. My own personal energy gained a lot from this session, especially in terms of confidence and my integration into the new team. There was a sense of deep appreciation from everyone.

The practices put us in a positive frame of mind and led to us getting to know each other better beyond the day to day aspects of work. Just as Core Listening was designed to do, empathy emerged along with a desire to create a creative atmosphere of success. The topics dealt with have opened up a 360% view of different perspectives: personal, private, professional and social aspects that can now be brought together. The experiment also made it possible to look at the issues from different view points. It has laid the foundation for consider and tackle everyday problems from different angles and find better solutions every time.

Maria inspires through her conviction and shows this through widely branching paths that extend beyond the classic leadership training. She opens doors, but leaves it up to each participant to decide for themselves whether to step through them and open up to a new perspective.

Dear Maria,

Thank you very much for the afternoon with you! Your competent and empathic work has helped the tender seedling of our project grow fantastically well. You brought to light what is unique for each one of us and made visible the essence and crux of our project – it greatly enriched my vision of our place and what we want to do there. You use many different elements from your wealth of knowledge. I was particularly touched by the way you incorporated elements from kinesiology into the coaching work, which deepened my experience and meant that insights were not only in my head, but could be felt holistically and on a deeper level. I have known about kinesiology for a long time, but I have never experienced it being used in a coaching session. For me this was the most special thing about your work and for me also one of the reasons why my experience of your lessons was so rich. We will definitely need your work and your support more often on our adventure!

The benefit of the retreat is, to renew my understanding of the importance of not being so strict with myself and not judging myself so much. But Instead to allow myself to look at myself in a loving way. This is nothing new, but during the retreat I could FEEL it – in my gut and in my heart, which is much more effective then to repeat it only in a rational way – in my head - again and again.

Come prima cosa mi viene in mente la possibilità di potere migliorare il team building ed il lavoro di squadra attraverso l’utilizzo di un metodo informale e coinvolgente in cui indipendentemente dai ruoli che si ricoprono all’interno dell’ufficio ognuno esprime il proprio punto di vista su determinate tematiche mettendolo a disposizione del resto del gruppo in uno scambio reciproco arricchente e coinvolgente. Questo gioco aiuta, inoltre, a prendere consapevolezza maggiormente delle proprie capacità  e punti di forza e di sfruttarle per potere iniziare percorsi professionali e personali più innovativi e più creativi.

Il mio livello di energia al termine dell’incontro era super. Mi sentivo positivo, sereno e più ispirato. La mia energia personale ha beneficiato molto da questo incontro in termini anche di fiducia ed inserimento nel gruppo di lavoro. Il fatto che alcuni dei miei interventi siano stati graditi dalle colleghe e dalla direttrice mi ha fatto sentire stimato ed apprezzato. Questo incontro ha quindi avuto effetti più che positivi ed utili sul mio benessere psicofisico sia in ambito lavorativo che privato. 

L’effetto sul team intero ed anche su me stesso è stato quello di creare un’attitudine positiva e propositiva. L’incontro ha permesso  di conoscerci l’un l’altro sotto un altro aspetto rispetto a quello strettamente lavorativo: più amichevole e familiare. Il modo in cui è stato condotto l’esperimento ha permesso di sviluppare empatia, voglia di fare ed un’atmosfera gradevole e creativa.  I temi trattati per mezzo dei quesiti presenti nelle schede, ci hanno permesso di vedere ed analizzare i fatti sotto una prospettiva ampia a 360° in grado di connettere diverse realtà: da quella professionale, a quella domestica, sino a quella della società in generale.

L’effetto è stato quello anche di sviluppare e rafforzare metodi di approccio per trovare soluzioni diverse, prendendo in considerazione diversi punti vista o analizzando i problemi da angolazioni alternative. Questo incontro ha dato le  basi per  permette di affrontare il lavoro quotidiano ed i problemi sotto diversi aspetti, per trovare pertanto le soluzioni migliori per ogni caso concreto.

"Conversation brought a conscious unstanding and ability to explain the background to the situation I was experiencing. Through this conversation I was able to being the phase to an end – and its ongoing burden has subsequently disappeared.I was shown how I can play an active part in bringing the situation to a close, without having to surpress it, unresolved. I am hopeful that this this lived experience won’t re-emerge at a later date. The atmosphere inspired trust and was very calm.
You are very empathic, while also being able to maintain a professional distance. This allowed you to guide the conversations in a way that enabled me to reach results, despite my feeling tense emotionally. I felt no sense of confusion afterwards, i.e. the sense I had found more questions than answers. By professional distance, I don’t mean cool detachment, but the ability to speak with a clear mind and to break down the complex web of the situation I was experiencing."
