Dr. Geertje Tutschka – die Präsidentin

Growing awareness of soft skills

Communication skills are at the heart of the legal profession and should be taught to lawyers as early as the basic training stage. At the same time, being a lawyer is viewed as a so-called liberal profession, without the associated topics such as business development, management and project management being developed accordingly.
That's why I started  CLP – for creating a link between the legal training and the management consultancy for law firm owners. Lawyers should be optimally prepared for their everyday work. This business is no place for beginners.

With ICF Germany I have led the German Chapter team since 2016 (since 2019 as President Past), which won the top 10 Chapter of the International Professional Association for coaches with about 30,000 members in 140 countries worldwide. During my presidency I´m the link between the German Chapter and the International Association. I love working in an international community of Chapter Leaders and coaches and shaping the strategic plan of the worldwide professional association, the quality brand of ICF certifications and quality coaching in general, internationally and in each individual country. I work closely with the other german speaking ICF Chapter presidents (Austria and Switzerland) develop the language in the ICF world, support the eastern europe Chapter and especially the ICF Chapter of the EU to shape the regulation of coaching.

As President (Past) of the ICF Germany I stand for quality standards and ethical guidelines in coaching!

As a delegate in the Round Table of German-speaking Coaching Associations (www.roundtable-coaching.eu), which represents over 7,000 German-speaking professional coaches, I design quality coaching in the German-speaking world together with the other more than 15 coaching associations in the German-speaking part of the European Union.

Our brochure "Quality Management in Individual Coaching" shows how ICF quality standards in coaching can be messured.

Together with the Coachingtag (www.coachingtag.com) we annually organize one of the most important congresses and trade fairs of the coaching industry in german speaking countries. Since 2018 we at ICF Deutschland have been presented the Prism Award annually for special coaching programmes in companies, which I have initiated and managed.
