Executive coach Gudrun Happich helps business leaders to improve their management style. Nature can be a helpful guide for companies. Similar to biological systems, companies also have to adapt to their environment and to changing circumstances. Gudrun Happich came to this conclusion when working as an executive – a job she did for 12 years. “I was expected to manage the companies in a way that did not suit me. I had to act like a different person and realised that this management style was ineffective,” Happich explains. Therefore, she was looking for alternative models. Since she studied biology, she found inspiration in nature and developed the ‘bioSystemik management approach’: “I was looking for consistent solutions,” Happich explains. Her strategy not only turned out to be very successful, she also enjoyed being an executive again.
