in-cooperation | Dr. Veronika Fuest

My approach

Diversity and contradiction mean challenge and opportunity to me. I facilitate cooperation and I build bridges: between groups, within groups, between conflicting positions internal to the self.

Dr. Veronika Fuest

As social anthropologist and transactional analysis consultant I esteem a resource-oriented approach and aware­ness both of social and institutional contexts and of the diversity of perspectives among persons - and within persons. My professional ambition is directed to help discovering creative potentials in persons, teams and organizations, to develop solutions in critical situations and to try out novel perspectives and options for action.


  • multidisciplinary studies: social anthropology, linguistics, psychology, agricultural sciences
  • further education in the areas of project management, communication, conflict counseling and mediation, time management
  • certification as consultant for systemic-transactional analysis comprising coaching, team development and organization development; 5 years of training
  • professional experience of project planning, administration, international project management and stakeholder coordination
  • coaching of senior and junior researchers and of administration officers, mentoring
  • ombudsman activities, internal consultancy, organization development and process facilitation in a university
  • facilitation of workshops concerning transdisciplinary cooperation, micropolitics, German science system, communication and professional consulting, peer consulting, dealing with inner stress factors
  • work and research in Germany and abroad
  • freelance expert activities in development cooperation

Situationally I am able to draw on a rich pool of methods: client-centered communication, creative techniques and reflective exercises may be matched with qualitative interviews, interactive analysis of situations and conveying relevant theoretical background. In addition I facilitate system constellations, group work and peer-to-peer consulting.

As a consultant and trainer I use a variety of analytical concepts and creative methods, supporting us in identifying critical issues and challenges that you meet and want to overcome. The models I use can be applied independently in your professional life, for example, to improve your communication or to manage conflicts.
