Nothing is as constant as change
As a trainer, consultant, coach and university professor, Malte firmly believes that individuals themselves are the key to a new working and business world. For this reason, his focus lies on leadership, organization, new work, design thinking, entrepreneurship and agility. Malte has accompanied both international corporations and medium-sized hidden champions in their entrepreneurial transformation processes and associated human resources strategies. After more than ten years in management consulting, most recently as an associate partner, Malte followed his calling and special passion for imparting knowledge, mindset and skills in 2016 by becoming a professor of organizational psychology at a private university, as well as a freelance trainer and certified systemic coach.
In doing so, Malte has not only had the opportunity to work with some outstanding people, but to build on his wealth of experience in a range of industries, markets and organizations. Nor does he shy away from challenging settings. Assignments as a trainer for social workers in Assam, northeast India, for example, have taught him to listen, immerse himself in the world of the others and face what many consider to be chaos with humility and agility.
Malte has worked in remote and hybrid fashion since 2008 and enjoys both online and face-to-face training and workshops. He also researched the topics closest to his heart, remote collaboration, social software, new work environments and building trust instead of control, for his doctoral thesis.
Speaking of academia, Malte never left university completely and became a professor of human resource management and organizational psychology after completing his doctorate in business informatics. Since then, Malte has found himself captivated every day by the countless ways he can learn from students and participants.
However, his life extends beyond the working and business world of the future. Malte had originally planned to travel to all countries across the globe, but having already visited 140, he opted to let others complete all 196. Since then, Malte has been traversing the world on foot and with his children, and through meditation, he leads a life focused on the here and now.
