Career Coaching

Volker Ballueder has a lot of experience positioning himself within the world of work. Whether that is as a contractor or a full time employee. He has been through he 2008 recession and the Covid19 crisis, and Volker has never given up, or stopped working, or was short of work. 
 
He built up an exceptional amount of resilience, stamina and more importantly knowledge of how to utilise his network, how to find a job, and position oneself within the realms of the workplace. 
 
For many years he has helped graduates to enter the workforce, navigate applications, supported their ambition, and helped them work out what they want in life; aligning their values and purpose to the world of work and career choices. Volker also mentored individuals changing jobs and careers. 
 
Coachees found careers which are right for them, and transitioned into new and happier lives after redundancies, maternity breaks, or job losses. Volker was able to coach them to achieve their goals of finding a career they loved.

 

I have worked with Volker for almost 10 years. He has been a trusted advisor in several capacities for me. First, when I started in ad tech and media he mentored me through my master’s thesis into my first years on the job. As a first-time entrepreneur, I could always count on Volker confronting me with uncomfortable truths about myself. Questioning our approach, holding me accountable. Being there in good times and especially the bad ones when I learned about being lonely as a leader. He is what I would call an ‘honest coach’. Someone who you can trust to drive you forward. Volker’s advice has been invaluable to me over the past few years and I will continue to work with him.

Leadership Coaching

As a leadership coach, Volker Ballueder is drawing on his extensive knowledge of over 15 years of working with C-Levels and senior management teams.

Leaders gain a new perspective on their own career and on how to apply a more effective leadership style, engaging in succession planning and management. Volker has helped executives to develop ‘superstar’ workers, manage difficult people and expedite time management.

The challenges of today’s leaders are manifold, and the focus is either to develop the leader or help them to resolve a problem or challenge.

Topics Volker has focused on:

  • Emotional Intelligence (EQ) for leaders
  • Strengths Coaching 
  • Executive Workshops
  • Personal Development
  • Work-Life balance as a leader and business owner
  • Productivity in an executive world
  • High performer modelling, using NLP techniques
As a result, leaders were able to have a better work-life balance, feel less stressed and overwhelmed, and developed succession plans. The positive impact has been felt both in their business life as well as their personal and family life.
