Introduction

Jens is an exceptional engineer with natural leadership skills that have propelled him to the highest levels of management in the automotive industry. As the head of a key business unit at a global automotive giant, Jens channels his passion for helping others by coaching senior leaders across a range of industries and functions.

In just 7 years at Bosch, Jens has risen from a front-line engineering role to the Director of Powertrain Solutions, leading projects within the International Production Network for Common Rail Injectors. Prior to this role, Jens led manufacturing operations and engineering for Bosch Diesel common rail injectors.

Before he joined Bosch, Jens served 17 years in the German Armed Forces, rising to the rank of Major (GS) and leading combat service support and international assignments in Germany and abroad. He also completed two years of post graduate education at the German Armed Forces Command and Staff College.

Jens leverages his considerable leadership skills and experience to help other leaders develop global presence, cultural sensitivities and adjust to the demands of senior leadership roles. He has worked with leaders in Germany and China, helping them to succeed in leading and developing organizations. He has also supported learning and leadership development at Bosch China, the German Red Cross and Fudan University.

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.
User Experience and Product Team, Bosch

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.
