Dr Norbert Riethof is an Executive Coach and Consultant in the areas of Leadership, Management & Sales. His coaching approach is aimed at increasing leadership and team effectiveness, combining gestalt and existential coaching methodologies, focusing on personality preferences. He is a founder and owner of Coaching Systems. He is a master trainer and supervisor at the Academy of Coaching Excellence. In addition, he supervises corporate development projects for well known international companies, active mainly in Consulting, Manufacturing, IT, Pharmaceuticals and Retail. He co-operates with EMCC on several volunteer projects and he is the current President of EMCC in the Czech Republic. He also has his own therapeutic practice based on Existential Analysis methodology.


In this demonstration session, we will explore together how the existential approach might play an important role in Leadership Coaching. Leaders need to find their core values to be able to lead others effectively and existential coaching can provide that with unexpected clarity. The central questions we will be looking at are:

• Dealing with leader’s conditions and limitations – possibilities in a development process
• What is a value – existential values and their context of reference
• How can people find their own and refer authentically to something
• The existential understanding of meaning
• How can the question of meaning be worked through in the coaching process?

Through demonstration and reflection on existential coaching techniques in leadership context (four levels of existence) you will see how to help leaders focus on the search for the meaning of one’s actions.
