Shortly thereafter, he went on to train as a family business advisor in order to be able to meet the needs of clients more effectively.
The clear need for a backpack full of conflict resolution tools led Joachim to follow the training in mediation within family businesses and in commercial and civil matters. His three main characteristics as a mediator are calming, a strong listening ability and a fresh view on the conflict. Furthermore, Joachim is the father of 2 children, a task in which conflict resolution tools come in very handy.
