Birgit Fischer-Sitzwohl says:

"I like to work with people from different branches, disciplines and cultures. I am always fascinated observing people who did not know each other before, working together with our methods very quickly and highly productively, making their organization sustainably successful.

My main interests and competencies are in the field of leadership development. Coaching leaders to manage and implement necessary changes aligned to the goals of the organization - in a way that executives could accept and embrace them. For the necessary skills development we offer our experience-based Trainings.

My private interests are: my family, playing golf, reading, good food, gelber Muskateller (this is a very specific white wine), my sister's dog Nikolaus vom Kindberger Wappen, and our friends."
