From December 2019 to July 2020 I took part in the Business Coaching services of Lydia Kliche with a close look on my leadership role and accompanying aspects for a total of 13 x 75 minutes.
As a senior executive, I understand the importance of the decisions I make to lead a team and the image I project when making those decisions. Personally, I am quite a passionate person and I need to learn to better control the way I channel the energy I project, either when I move, speak or with my gestures (facial expressions, hand gestures, etc.). This applies to one-on-one discussions with team members, for cross-departmental meetings or for virtual meetings (video conference, telephone). I had to learn to appear more neutral and at the same time convey a clear position.
Through the coaching of Ms. Kliche, I became more aware of the image I am projecting (with my body, my posture, my voice, etc.) and learned to concentrate better on the message I want to convey and at the same time to channel my energy, to take breaks and listen to my conversation partners.
I believe that empathy was already a strength of mine, but with Lydia’s support I became more aware of certain things. This coaching was a great adjustment process between coach and “coachee” and a learning journey about myself, during which I strengthened my inner self-management and self-confidence.
I am grateful and grateful for this “self-awareness” exercise, which is the first step in becoming a better person and professional.

“Ich habe von Januar bis September 2020 ein Business Kommunikationscoaching bei Frau Kliche wahrgenommen und vorab mit ihr meine Wünsche telefonisch besprochen, hinsichtlich derer ich Entwicklungspotential erkannt habe. Schon bei diesem ersten Telefonat fühlte ich mich kompetent beraten und habe entschieden, mir dieses Coaching zu gönnen. In den darauffolgenden Terminen haben wir über zahlreiche Themen gesprochen, u.a. über die Körperhaltung in Verbindung mit den verschiedensten Übungen, zum Thema „Wirkung und Präsenz“, auch haben wir an der Stimme gearbeitet.
Bereits nach der Hälfte der vereinbarten Coachingtermine fühlte ich mich sehr viel gestärkter und besser als zu Beginn des Coachings. Jetzt nach Abschluss des Coachings kann ich sagen, dass es mir sehr gut getan hat und ich wesentlich präsenter wirke, mit Stresssituationen sehr viel gelassener umgehe und auch meine Präsenz insgesamt laut meiner Kollegen sehr viel harmonischer und kompetenter wirkt, als noch zu Beginn des Coachings.
Frau Kliche ist eine sehr kompetente und einfühlsame Frau, bei der ich mich immer wohl und gut aufgehoben fühlte. Ich kann ein Coaching bei Frau Kliche nur empfehlen, wenn man Entwicklungspotential erkennt und etwas verändern möchte. Der Einsatz lohnt sich, Frau Kliche verfügt über zahlreiche Kenntnisse und Erfahrungen, so dass die sich entwickelnden Erfolge jeden Cent wert sind.
Bei weiterem Bedarf, bzw. mit anderen Fragestellungen werde ich mich auch künftig sehr gerne an Frau Kliche wenden.”

I was accompanied by Ms. Kliche from September 2019 to June 2020 as part of business coaching sessions. The holistic approach that Ms. Kliche followed became the key to my success. This enabled me to work on specific situations in day-to-day business as a team leader in corporate development and at the same time to relate them to my behavior in other situations in life.
The ten months have helped me a lot to better utilize my own potential and to get a better feeling for the right attitude inside and outside in every situation in life.

“Starting with the goal to improve public speaking I worked with Ms. Kliche for over a year. Ms. Kliche quickly identified a diverse set of areas for improvement which had its roots way deeper than just breathing and pronunciation. Through her vast experience and expertise in the areas of psychology and human relations she applies a holistic approach to improve appearance, posture and communication. Over the period we worked together I have clearly progressed in my self-awareness, confidence and – as a result – public speaking. Her excitement for her job is remarkable, as is her positive attitude. I would like to thank her for the valuable input and I can highly recommend her.”

Dear Mrs. Kliche,
I approached you in the fall of 2014, as I faced the challenge of assuming the role of an eco-energy service provider (sales: Euro 1 billion / 200 employees) in South Hessen with increased public performances. This was “new territory” in my professional career and I was unsure accordingly, starting in November 2014 until September 2015, we met for 10 sessions of 1.5 hours each.
I was pleasantly surprised that as part of your holistic education you did not use the techniques and skills were at the forefront of our sessions, but me, as a personality / human, with strengths & weaknesses.
You analyzed and pronounced also “inconvenient” truths, I was able to reflect and together we laughed a lot, and at the same time you managed to show me ways of doing new things and to feel at home with them, as a prerequisite for getting better I have always felt very well accepted and accepted in our meetings in your business space.
As a result, I can confirm that my coaching objective has been fully met.
Feel free to use me as a reference for new clients.
I wish you all the best for your future career as a coach.

Dear Mrs. Kliche,
I’ve been attending your Business Coaching for the past six months. It is my opinion that the topics I have discussed not only help me in terms of content, but that you have also understood perfectly well how to put a completely different, holistic focus on the topics “expression, perception and voice”.
By combining different topics or views, and learning from your customers what conditions they are in, your work will give you a much broader view that is also very inspiring and motivating.
The enthusiasm for your own work and the many experiences that you gain actively in your field of activity through advanced training allow a colorful, spontaneous approach with your customers, which still follows a certain framework.
I would like to thank you for the experience and therefore I will gladly recommend you further.

“Almost immediately after starting my Business Communication Coaching with Ms. Kliche, I saw that she was going to greatly exceed my expectations. She quickly helped me understand just how significant various, seemingly basic elements fit into the art of communication.
Frau Kliche’s enthusiasm and subject matter knowledge really helps motivate you in this development process. Throughout the training, I could feel my self-awareness increasing, leading to improved communication through posture, breathing, inflection, and understanding.
The coaching and methodology really help you realize your true potential. It is a very enlightening and positive experience.”
