The Path to Personal Transformation – Working on Emotions and Assumptions in Coaching

Speaker: Dr. Ernst Bechinie, MCC

Workshop description

Transformation is the process of letting go of the way things used to be and then taking hold of the way they subsequently become. This process begins with understanding the emotions and assumptions behind our actions in our past. It means leaving behind what’s not adequate for our present life situation. And it finally leads to creating a new inner reality. In taking over a new leadership role in a company, becoming an entrepreneur or rearranging your personal life, the challenge is Transformation.

In this interactive workshop we show how our Fears – one of our central emotions - are connected with our four basic Needs: the need of becoming a unique individual, the need for love and being loved, the need for security and the need for change. 

Objectives of the Workshop

  • Understand the four basic needs for a balanced life
  • Deepen the awareness for our supporting and hindering forces on our path of transformation
  • Practically work with hindering assumptions for integration fears and increase our life balance.


Dr. Ernst Bechinie, MCC has been coaching entrepreneurs, executives and professionals in leadership-development and professional transition for over ten years. He is also a mentor and supervisor for coaches and consultants.

Before that he was for over 30 years an entrepreneur, executive and consultant, building up consulting businesses in Germany and Switzerland. Amongst others he managed his own company focusing on consulting in strategy, organization and people development during 20 years in Frankfurt, before selling to PricewaterhouseCoopers. Prior to that he was a partner of the Hay Group in Germany. He is author of “Secrets of Entrepreneurship – Revealed by those who did it”.
