How my colleagues are describing me:

Highly innovative, strategic thinker with excellent implementation capabilities, solutions oriented, driving transformation and sustainable change in a cooperative and teaming oriented way, an inspirational global people leader and great communicator.

My specific passion is working with and developing people globally – preferably in challenging transformation projects.

I’m leveraging the experience of 20 years in leadership roles for my consulting work. This enables good discussions at the right decision making levels. Next to my strategic and analytical capabilities the experience in dealing with practical operational challenges in the execution of projects and implementation of decisions knowing about the dependencies in an organisation helps to develop the right solutions together with the clients. We define the optimal outcome, challenge the boundaries and achieve the maximum within the environment. This leads to a successful implementation and execution.

Here some examples of transformation projects from the last few years:

  • Group wide redesign and implementation of an enhanced target operating model within a midsize financial services organisation
  • Multi-country European M&A project from due diligence, deal design to post merger integration adding 5 country organisations with approx 1000 colleagues to an existing european structure of 3500 colleagues
  • Selection and deployment of a new group wide HCM solution for 17 countries for a services business
  • design, development and implementation of a completely new global organisation for HR Services for 130.000 employees in 52 countries, transformation und implementation of global processes and technology, setting up and leading more than 600 employees in 23 countries
  • design and reorganisation of pension plans transfering all employees from defined benefit plans to cash balance plans
  • leading the reorganisation of an entire organisation along the the value chain setting up a new structure of 18 legal entities for R&D, Sales, Services and Infrastructure including transfer of more than 8000 employees

Verena Gibson

Organisational design, team development, executive coaching, C-level sparring, mediator and conflict resolution expert

Experienced sparring partner, mentor, coach, mediator, team developer and trainer for executives, employees and teams from various industries.

+ Bachelor of Business Administration - BBA, Economics
+ Certified consultant for organisational design for agile teams and companies
+ Deputy Head of the Business Division of the German Association for Mediation
+ Certified mediator
+ Member of the German Mediation Association (BMEV)
+ Strengths-based intervention

Berlin, Germany

Focus Areas:

  • CEO sparring and coaching
  • Female Leadership
  • Organisational Design
  • Digital transformation support
  • Mediation and conflict management
  • Leadership development
  • Team development
  • Facilitation of processes and conflict situations
  • Remote/hybrid working

The focus of her work is on supporting CEOs and executives in setting up/realigning the framework conditions of the organisation as well as conflict resolution in teams. She draws on her expertise in the field of organisational design based on Luhmann's systems theory as well as conflict resolution expertise based on her training as a business mediator. She relies on the understanding that companies are not made of people but of communication. According to this approach, the connection between conflicts/challenges and the existing framework conditions in the company can be explained more effectively. This is because people always behave in a context-dependent way. Therefore, the framework conditions are usually the reason for emerging conflicts and not the people themselves. In her counselling and support, she therefore applies the thinking tools of Future Leadership (according to the intrinsify academy) and solves leadership problems that could not be solved before.
