Philsophy in management coaching

On the floor are colorful squares and notes and the philosopher and management consultant Dr. Gerhard Hofweber goes from one to the other and tells us his thoughts and feelings. Systemic cognition is the method developed by him with which he wants to help his clients to solve their problems.

“The solution is bigger than the problem,” is his motto, among other things, to which he offers various services: help with decisions, tapping unused potential, self-esteem and sovereignty for managers, as well as serenity and determination.

Relaxing as a lecture by Anselm Grün

To this end, two years ago he opened his philosopher's villa, a neo-baroque building from the year 1901, in the picturesque Bavarian bath Bad Brückenau, where he regularly invites coaching clients, holds seminars or organizes the Staaatsbader Symposium. As references Hofweber lists among others Daimler, Roland Berger the Lufthansa or the manager magazine.

The Staatsbad as a location is excellently chosen: not only that the well-known Benedictine Anselm Grün also gives regular lectures here: The complex is simply a dream! Take a deep breath and come to rest - that was my first impression. And that was not only because of a lightning strike, the WLAN had largely come to a standstill.

The park of Ludwig I.

Much more is due to the 1747 baroque park, which is surrounded by 14 buildings, of which the most imposing in the time of King Ludwig I of Bavaria, who visited the state bath 26, among others together with his beloved Lola Montez, which he raised to the countess and later cost him the throne.

The ensemble protection standing system is really excellent. Four hotels, two clinics, pensions, guesthouses, apartments and private rooms with a total of 1080 beds and 12 restaurants receive annually about 230.000 guests - with well 7.000 residents in Bad Brückenau, of which 500 on the public bath is omitted.

Where Ludwig I slept

Particularly noteworthy is, for example, the Schlosshotel Fürstenhof, which, lying on a hill, towers over the entire complex. It was built on behalf of Prince-Bishop Heinrich von Bibra in 1775 and housed King Ludwig I a total of 26 times. The Fürstenhof has just been renovated.

Or the house Schwan, in which we were housed: A pavilion-like, two-storey Mansardwalmdachbau, baroque, in the core of 1747. Or the walk around 1900, a second use of the former platform of Bad Kissingen. Because in the state bath, there are several mineral springs which health-promoting effect is attributed.

Betty Ford clinic and celebrities

It also houses the only My Way Betty Ford clinic in Germany, where numerous managers and celebrities like Jenny Elvers had their addiction treated.

Even otherwise, there is a high density of celebrities in the state bath: So the Croatian national team was housed here for the World Cup 2006. And Joe Cocker, Joan Baez, Chris de Burgh, Ina Müller, Max Raabe and Deep Purple have appeared at the annual concerts and open air events. During my stay we also visited a concert of the Bayrischer Kammerorchester Bad Brückenau in the Kursaal building of 1833 - the orchestra was already in front of Benedict XVI. played.
