Florian Schmidt

Systemic Agile and Enterprise Coach

He is a systemic coach for individuals, teams and organizations. His approach is based on the distinction of internal values, beliefs and culture as well as outer dimensions like behaviors and processes.

Having a degree in business administration (University of Cologne) he led projects, acted as a Product Owner and Agile Coach in digital strategy and transformation, IT projects, and product innovation in startups as well as in the corporate world for more than 10 years now. He implemented and coached agile ways of working for Scrum, Kanban, OKRs and others.

He built up multiple new departments, service offerings along the whole value chain, developed training concepts and has been responsible for the corresponding business development. He worked for and with IBM, BASF, WDR, DEVK, Deloitte, EnBW and many others.

His focus lies on connecting empathically with the people he interacts with. This is no means to an end but a necessity for lowering mental barriers of clients who are dealing with change.

He is a lecturer for systemic coaching and change management at INeKO Institute of the University of Cologne.

He likes to condense his experiences and questions in articles he is writing (more or less) regularly.

He accompanies this dance not only as a coach, but also as a DJ. The commonality with change?

Familiar rhythms alternate with new ones. Dissonances dissolve in melodic harmonies. Uncomfortable spaces become a feel-good zone. What was affects what is to come. Moments of irritation become a coherent whole. This applies to the dance floor and to systems such as teams and organizations, because:

If you want to change the system, you have to dance with the system. (Donella Meadows)
