Being one of the pioneers, Britt A. Wrede brought coaching into German corporations at the beginning of the 1990s. Already in the year 2000 – when the market started to become more and more diffuse – did she publish her book „So finden Sie den richtigen Coach / How to find the right coach“ (Campus). She wrote it hoping to counteract the commencing dilution of the term coaching by providing relevant and adequate information. Since then Britt A. Wrede has been monitoring the market development meticulously and has repeatedly influenced the continued development of coaching standards by publishing essays and contributing in coaching associations.
She is considered unerring with regard to quality and ethics in coaching. In corporations she is traded as a coach with an instinctive feeling for possibility.
She sees what could be achieved with a good coaching programme in an organisation and assists to realise this possibility.
And again – as in 1990 – she is acting a little bit ahead of the market with coachguide!
