Born in a Central Asian country of the USSR and relocated to West Germany in my early youth, I was literally born with an international outlook. This has continued seamlessly in my professional life after my education. The permanent challenge of dealing with other nationalities, mentalities, languages, social, legal and economic peculiarities have decisively shaped me as a person and manager. Putting myself in the shoes of the situation, the people, the facts without giving up the desired goal has helped me significantly to motivate and inspire people through empathy. I have been using these qualities successfully in my consulting work since 2010.
