Andrea Mikoleit
Senior Consultant

“A mathematical equation can only be solved if all figures and variables are considered. Equally, a change process is only successful and sustainable, if the entirety of both hard and soft business factors are being taken into account.”

My passion is to connect seemingly different worlds: the systemic with the efficiency-oriented world, the technical with the commercial world, the corporate world with the one of the individual person.
In over 20 years as a business advisor, I have worked with a multitude of companies with different organizational forms and a variety of leadership and management models. Due to this experience and expertise I generally take on leading roles in complex, international and interdisciplinary projects. My personal USP: I combine strong analytical problem solving skills, with empathy, appreciation, customer orientation and a healthy dose of pragmatism – with a special focus on the systemic approach.
