Tim has been building synapses between human beings since 1983. Mentoring advocate, international public speaker, mentor and mentee, he works as Chief Learning Officer and Agile Coach for the MATHEMA Software GmbH company in Germany. But when the night comes, and his small family is put to bed, he prefers to plot the transformation of the people around him into mythical beings, unicorn developers.
Tim comes in 4 flavors that often overlap
- Mentoring Advocate
- Chief Learning Officer
- Public Speaker
- Technical Agile Coach
Mentoring can be reduced to the art of helping one person grow. Both as a mentor and as a mentee, this is the much needed booster for your career and your life alike.
As a long time mentee, I can appreciate how important and life changing it is to have a guide beside you on your life journey. As a long time mentor, I have grown while trying to help others and I try to give back as much as my mentors gave or are giving me. As a mentoring advocate, I try to promote mentoring as a tool for communities and companies interested in the growth of their members.
If you want to know more about mentoring, contact me. If you are interested in pushing mentoring in your circles and don't know where to start, I can help. If mentoring crossed your path already and want to talk about it, I'd be pleased to have a chat with you! Please get in touch!
Chief Learning Officer
Learning is a personal journey, but it doesn't have to be a lonely task. My job as a Chief Learning Officer (CLO) is to make sure none of my colleagues accidentally walk unaccompanied on their learning journey.
People have different tastes. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to growing as a person. As a CLO, I supervise the creation of a "tools buffet" that my colleagues can use to enrich their own journey.
Do you want to know more about those tools? Please contact me!
Outstanding coworkers are not born this way. Becoming one takes a lot of hard work. It requires dedication, introspection, mindfulness, mentoring, coaching and human interactions. This is not an accidental process.
There is not one path to greatness, no silver bullet, no magic recipe and no shortcuts. Growing is a personal journey. Yet there is a map, a set of best practices and known pitfalls that one can acknowledge and build upon.
In the past years, I've encouraged and inspired people in Germany and across Europe. I’ve presented to audiences both large and small. I spoke in a variety of settings and contexts in three languages, German, English and French.
I would love to learn more about your organisation and your event. I look forward to working together do reaching your goals! Get in touch!
Technical Agile Coach
Team forming, technical excellence, self-organization, sustainable pace, customer value, business agility, coaching, moderation, facilitation... but also technical excellence, mastery, eXtreme Programming, Code Quality, DevOps, Clean Code... many challenges you will face on your path toward agility. I can help.
As an Agile Coach, I enable development teams. I coach individuals and whole teams. I create sustainable systems where outstading results and fun are the norm. I build on excellence and clean code. I preach work in pairs or mobs. I trust coaching and mentoring between peers. I advocate craftsmanship. Those are the pillars of my coaching. As an Agile Coach, I help management reflect on practices and decisions. I guide projects and organizations toward business agility.
Do you need a coach for your teams? A senior scrum master? Help scaling your teams? A sparing partner for your managers? Someone to accompany the organisation toward excellence? We should talk!
