Introduction

I'm a project leader within the International Production Network for Common Rail Injectors for Bosch Powertrain Solutions. The Powertrain Solutions Division is part of the Bosch Group.

Recently I was leading the manufacturing operations and engineering department for machining for Bosch Diesel common rail injectors. Bosch Automotive Diesel Systems Co., Ltd. is specialized in development, application, project management and manufacturing of highly advanced Diesel injection technology.

Besides my career in manufacturing, I’m a coach, mentor and facilitator. During the last years, I have worked with leaders and teams in Germany and China, helping them to succeed in leading and developing organizations. Additionally, I support the learning and leadership development department for Bosch China in implementing a transformational leadership culture by consulting and facilitation.

Before joining Bosch, I served 17 years in the German Armed Forces with a leadership career in combat service support and international assignments in and outside Germany and on missions abroad. Going through the ranks, finally up to Major (GS) with a 2 years post graduate education at the German Armed Forces Command and Staff College, my foundations for my perception of leadership was deeply engaged and fostered.

With my leadership background and my education in executive coaching I add diversity and depth to my executive coaching practice. I seek to elevate my counterparts to become authentic leaders with an awareness of the underlying issues that drives their behavior and its influence on people, development and business results. Continuously learning in these fields and related trends has become the key to stay up to date and to support my counterparts best.

I grew up and live in Germany. From 2015 to 2019 I have been living in Suzhou, China. I enjoy time with my family as well as deep conversations with friends.

Jens demonstrated a high degree of flexibility (times, speed and intensity) of the sessions. I appreciated blended-media approach. At all times he kept the responsibility with me as a client.
Vice President Marketing, Bosch

Jens’ behavior and attitude (sense of candor) when it comes to providing trust and asking provocative questions without the need for control. My team always opened up with trust and openness around him. […]besides Jens coaching the team, I felt that besides all we learnt throughout the coaching, that Jens is also a person with a great sense of empathy – he understand different people and based on that people feel valued and open up.

Jens is a powerhouse of empowerment and coaching skills. My experience of Jens is that he always has the time and space to coach, mentor or teach. Whatever is needed in the moment in the service of developing a coaching culture, Jens is there first to deliver what is required. An inspirational leader of the coaching movement, not just in Bosch but for the world.
