About Dr. Franz Heimel

“My expertise is based on more than 30 years of international experience as a consultant to companies of all sizes and sectors with respect to Strategic HR-Management, Management Development and Leadership. 

During my secondary education I spent one year as an exchange student in the USA and engaged in international youth work for many years thereafter. This experience has broadened my perspective and scope in communication, problem-solving and conflict-resolution. 

After my studies of commercial Sciences at the Vienna University for Business and Economics and more than a decade of consulting work, I summarized my insights on change management and how to deal with resistance in my PhD thesis. In addition to further training in human interaction and a range of personality inventories, I am certified as business consultant, coach and advisory board-member. 

Over time I have acquired special know-how and skills in assessing and evaluating leadership behavior and potential and mapping out development processes for individuals and organizational entities based on relevant and supportive feedback.”

MY VALUES –

MY PROMISE

Respect

I meet people at eye level, with due regard for their uniqueness, their interests, needs and concerns.

Transparency

In my role as consultant, I communicate openly, involving all stakeholders concerned. I freely disclose project objectives and don’t accept hidden agendas.

Discretion

Information given to me in the course of a consulting project will be kept strictly confidential.

Loyalty

All my clients can trust that I will do my best to support the purpose of the project and that I will go out of my way to generate additional benefit.

Accountability

Promises I make I intend to keep as best as I can. If I have doubts about the feasibility of a plan, I will raise them when they arise.

Teamplay

I believe that collaboration is the source of synergy and outstanding results. In the role of an external consultant, I am willing to openly share my knowledge and experience.

Out-of-the-box

My insights and recommendations are triggered by real-life observations and not taken from ready-made toolkits and templates.

Pragmatic Solutions

Drawing from my experience I usually find workable solutions which don’t require too much hassle and find acceptance from those concerned.
