My name is Alexandra Retzlaff, I am a graduate psychologist and have more than 20 years of professional experience in international companies, 13 years in the field of Human Resources. For nearly 10 years I have been working as a Vice President Human Resources in an international energy company.

You can find out more about my offer and my background on the following pages. As a background for my homepage I chose the trunk of a eucalyptus tree. Why?

Eucalyptus has some interesting properties that show parallels to my work. I find particularly remarkable the bark of the eucalyptus tree. Seen from a distance it is simply brown - as almost every tree. But when you get closer, you can see that it consists of different layers and is much more colorful, as you might think at first sight. Under each layer new colors are emerging and there are plenty of details to be discovered.

This is also my experience with coaching...

Coaching can help you to peel away the "old bark" - unconscious thinking patterns and rigid behavioral routines. Underneath, surprisingly, a lot of new strength and creative energy appears. The coaching process is exactly about this: Discovering and re-activating your abilities and hidden talents!

By the way, the name Eucalyptus is composed of the ancient Greek words εὖ eu for "beautiful, good" and καλυπτός kalyptos for "hidden".


I look forward to meeting you!
