Identify. Improve. Collaborate.
Teams function like cog wheels – one part interlocks with the next.
It takes at least 20 years of experience to understand all variations of successful leadership and team building methods.
You have an internal conflict situation and do not know how to solve it. Various media and guidebooks give you conflicting advice in this regard, none of which is tailored to your business.
Important decisions are pending in your company and you have to carry the heavy burden of decision making because your top executives are not up to the task. Your business requires your constant supervision. You have no time to devote to your core business – leading.
Your top managers are working in an area of friction resulting from the expectations of the management and the needs of each individual team member. They are overworked, feel discouraged and are unable to inspire themselves to action.
Due to remote working, there are distances in your team, which are also noticeable on a personal level. Employees have diverging ideas about the optimal organization of their daily work and overly complicated communication channels lead to conflicts.
Increasing internationalization brings to light the culturally based different perceptions of teamwork and work organization. Different leadership styles, expectations and ways of communication create friction.
Break your barriers with S2BC:coach, find your personal leadership style and put it into action one step at a time.
The person who will change your business is you – a unique individual. We pick you up from where you are on your career path. We see “through your eyes” and can give impulses for your solution approach.
We develop a game plan with you that gives you more freedom to work on your business instead of in your business. This game plan allows you to build your team so that it can function without your constant control. Because your motivated team knows the way to do things.
Your leaders learn the key skills for effective communication. Afterwards, they will be better equipped to handle their own emotions, as well as understand those of others, and find a solution that’s helpful to all parties.
Team leaders and members learn the skills needed to bridge distances and work together effectively. Honesty about expectations and willingness to compromise are as much a part of this as appropriate communication techniques.
Recognizing, promoting and valuing diversity is the key. Understand the culturally different approaches to challenges and conflicts in order to be more broadly positioned, to be able to react more agilely to situations and to draw your potential from diversity.

Group and Team Coaching: Strategies for strong teams
A successful team can be compared to a well-oiled machine. Each part has its own abilities and functions, performs them and through the interaction of all parts something bigger is created. The challenge in teams is that not everything is always as optimally organized as in a fine-tuned machine.
After an initial conversation free of charge, we will make you an offer. In the following team coaching we jointly identify the basic requirements of your team, which tasks are involved and where difficulties sometimes arise. This is followed by an analysis of the current situation and personalities, in order to then develop solutions for your team. You will soon be able to notice changes on the basis of measurable goals.

Business Coaching: Ways to solve professional challenges
Everybody faces complicated situations in their life, which require a lot of confidence and inner strength. These situations can arise from transformation processes and rapid technological progress. In small and medium-sized companies as well as start-ups, management is often left to find solutions on its own.
We are well-versed in these matters, facilitate finding a strategic reorientation and creating a roadmap. To do this, we also look at the topic of ‘people’ – what skills are required and how are you positioned? Finally, we work with you to identify your pain points, create measurable goals and develop a course of action.

I had the chance to be Jana’s mentee at the time she was the head of Global CA Development Management. I was impressed with her leadership skills and her friendly, direct and open manner.

Why S2BC:coach stands out
Grow as a person. Inspire as a leader.
Only a leader who is always working on themselves has a positive impact on team performance and thus on the success of the company. Our clients trust our coaching approach to help them experience, measure and enjoy their success through personal and professional development.
That is why our program is always focused on the individual and the resulting team structure. What distinguishes us from others is the actual experience in business environments.

Find your balance
Create a balance between strength and empathy, leadership and individual responsibility, safety and risk-taking.
Set distinct goals
Make your expectations transparent for yourself and your team members. This creates an understanding and a sense of certainty for your day-to-day work.
Find your "why"
Become clear about what the overarching purpose of your work is. Keeping this in mind motivates, creates clarity and allows you to grow personally.
Learn new soft skills
First, find out where you already have a good skill set and where there is room for improvement. Then it’s on to the further personal development of your social competences.
Organize the collaboration within your team and don’t be afraid to delegate responsibility to qualified employees. This trust creates self-confidence and optimism.
Communicate plainly and openly
Praising and appreciating individual performance is just as important as communicating critical issues clearly and honestly. Give and ask for constructive feedback.
We are there when you need us
Added value instead of buzz words: reality-proven methods on the cutting edge.
I am Jana Bulkin. I know what it’s like when business changes affect your professional career or when new approaches are needed to implement a reorganization. Tackling such challenges the right way makes personal growth all the more possible. Successful coaching provides the right tools.
With over 20 years in management, I have experienced effective methods of professional support for teams, both in practice and during numerous training sessions.
I work with executives, have established teams in intercultural contexts and support both in their mutual understanding. One of the fundamental structures of a successful change process is to provide managers and teams with objective observers and to support them in learning new skills. This is the shortest route to more clarity, self-confidence and a modern leadership style.
During the coaching you will increase your self-awareness, learn to listen to your fellow team members more intently and strengthen the feeling of meaningfulness in your actions.
