Hi, I’m Katrin!
I’ve worked for many years in leadership development, both at a large multinational corporation and as founder of The Globe Team.
One thing that has always struck me is how much strong leadership matters. Great leadership skills can transform a team that struggles into a team that finds consistent success.
That’s why I created The Globe Team. I believe that it’s essential to invest in leadership skills from the beginning, but not everybody knows where to start.
Here’s the good news: If you’ve found The Globe Team, you’ve found your starting place!
I’ve worked with 200+ team leaders across diverse countries and companies, specialising in building durable team-development processes and strategies for 1:1 coaching.
After spending eight years at Airbus, I helped build leaders in startup environments such as Y Food, gridX, German Accelerator and Techstars. I’ve also worked with government organisations such as the German Federal Foreign Office and large-scale corporations such as DeutschePost DHL. Now, I want to bring my experience and empathy to your new challenge as a leader!
So, let’s start your new leadership journey together!

Yes! There is a digital handbook available that can be downloaded. It’s a PDF and you can also print it. You will see that each course refers to a specific page in the handbook so you can easily follow along.
