WELCOME

WELCOME

I am delighted that we meet here!

My name is Birgitta Borghoff. I am a multiperspective researcher, entrepreneur and consultant, a passionate lecturer, holistic life coach and trainer as well as a storyteller and poet by heart. I have several years of practical and research experience in the fields of communication, entrepreneurship, project and arts management, in coaching creative and highly sensitive people (HSP) and in personality and potential development. My strong intuition and exceptional empathy, a high sensitivity for situations and interdisciplinary approaches as well as distinctive entrepreneurial and communication skills empower me to approach various topics and problems in a professional, innovative and sometimes somewhat unconventional way. I love to build bridges between people, businesses and cultures. Developing creative ideas and designing innovative projects from the original idea to realization fills me with deep joy. Likewise I enjoy motivating, encouraging and challenging people to become the best version of themselves.

At the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences I do research and teach in the areas of Organizational Communication and Entrepreneurship with a special focus on Entrepreneurial Storytelling, Discourse and Design, Start-up and Business Modeling. On a voluntary and advisory basis I serve on the Board of Trustees of the Sulzberg Foundation. As an entrepreneur I build bridges with my creative venture INNOVANTIQUA and develop holistic paths to success with my integral business brückenwege – all this for and together with people and companies that want to break new ground.

Does that resonate with you? – Then I look forward to getting to know you. Write me an email or contact me by filling in the form below.

Warm wishes
Birgitta Borghoff, MA/MAS ZFH

Mit Kreativer Agilität organisationale Transformationsprozesse gestalten – Language matters.

Im Rahmen des Erasmus+ Projekts Kreative Agilität erkundet Birgitta Borghoff zusammen mit Partnern aus Liechtenstein, Deutschland und Österreich, wie kunstbasierte Strategien die digitale und analoge Kommunikation in Organisationen transformieren. Warum Kreative Agilität wichtig ist, wie sie Kreative Agilität beobachtet, zusammen mit Studierenden erforscht und wie sie das gesammelte Wissen teilt, darüber erzählt Birgitta in diesem Beitrag.

New Work – Die Zukunft ist jetzt

Die Corona-Krise hat hinsichtlich New Work und Leadership einiges aufgezeigt. Als „New Workerin“ mit mehreren Standbeinen hat Birgitta Borghoff drei Thesen für einen zentralen Transformationsbeschleuniger der Gegenwart entwickelt . Was wäre, wenn jeder Mensch das machen würde, was er leidenschaftlich will und wozu er sich berufen fühlt?

Netzwerken ist Kommunikation – Teil 2

Sich verstellen ist anstrengend. Authentizität in der Kommunikation ist wichtig und wirkungsvoll. Natürlich „spielt“ man immer gewisse Rollen, aber je authentischer man sich beim Netzwerken verhält, desto grösser die Chance, dass sich einmal geknüpfte Netzwerk-Kontakte vertiefen und gemeinsame Projekte, Kooperationen oder Initiativen entstehen. Empathie und eine Prise Fingerspitzengefühl sind weitere wichtige Faktoren beim Netzwerken.

Netzwerken ist Kommunikation – Teil 1

Richtiges Netzwerken kann die Karriere in Schwung bringen. Denn: Beziehungen schaden nur dem, der keine hat. Doch worauf kommt es beim Netzwerken an? Auf was ist zu achten? Und ist es lernbar? Die Handelsschule KV Basel hat mit der Expertin Birgitta Borghoff gesprochen.
