My name is Sandra,
grateful to meet you.
I am Sandra Blühdorn and Circular Horizon is my company.
I guide and support teams, companies and individuals in organisational transformation processes for a sustainable and innovative work life.
I use facilitation, training, coaching and consulting as tools for developing new ways of working.
Work life transformation and innovation
Our future lies in developing more respectful and sustainable ways of working, collaborating and leading ourselves and our teams.
Transforming and innovating the way we work, live and do business starts with a shift towards accepting change as a constant. Once that is achieved, it is a matter of innovating and creating how we imagine our future work life – all while supporting employees in unfolding their potential, dealing resiliently with ongoing change and taking on new levels of responsibility in increasingly self-organised and remote teams.
There are a few ways we can approach the journey of transforming and innovating work life together. I consult companies and organisations in developing frameworks and processes for their work life transformation which likely leads to supporting their teams and individuals with facilitation, training and coaching during the change journey.
What is work life innovation and transformation and why do we need it?
To stay relevant in the future, most companies need to tremendously shift their work life culture and the way they innovate towards a working and operating model that fosters self-sustainability and that drives for innovation in a people-planet-profit friendly way.
By changing our work life environment, the way how we lead, collaborate and innovate, we create the highest impact towards a sustainable future.
In future-proof, sustainable and regenerative companies teams, management and individuals are …
…able to deal resiliently with change, uncertainty and speed
…able to leverage the value of failures as learnings
…able to self-lead and to self-organise
Together, we co-create and implement these work life places that cater for psychological safety, allowing and empowering employees to flourish at work and to unleash their potential.
Consultancy for transformation and innovation processes
I design, facilitate and implement transformation and innovation processes for companies and teams:
To move from today‘s, often hierarchical, rigid structure into a more flexible and supportive culture for collaboration and innovation that still provides reliability and accountability requires a carefully designed transformation journey and equipping your team with new tools and methods of working together.
In organizational transformation or innovation processes I bring in my first-hand experience out of the different workplaces – corporates, start-ups, and consultancies – I have been working in. Together, we co-create a process that starts where your company, your people are at, designed to reach your goal, your vision of what you are aiming for. We tailor the journey based on your and your employees’ wishes and needs and I bring in my tools, knowledge, and experience needed to implement the change and innovation.
We are the technology we've been waiting for.
Facilitation & Training
If you intend to foster and implement a new way of collaboration in your team, I am here to support you with facilitating you and your team through this transformation process and teaching you tools and methods needed for the change.
This journey is about designing and developing a team culture of collaboration, respect and collaboration, a team culture that takes into account what tools and processes are needed for delivering our work but also which culture supports your coworkers to unleash their potential, bring in their strengths and work self-organised while taking over responsibility.
You can work with me for the facilitation of team and project processes and trainings on:
- Self-leadership and collaborative leadership
- From Expectations to Agreements
- From Failure to Learning
- Unstucking the process
- New ways of working and collaboration
- From project management to project flow
If you don’t like where you are, move. You’re not a tree.
Business and Personal Coaching
The current times can be perceived as tremendously challenging and demanding. I am here to support you in these challenges, in your growth and change journey.
If you’re in for unfolding your full potential, for showing up how and who you truly are, if you wish to stop compromising, then I am here to coach and support you.
I promise to not let you off the hook, especially when the work is difficult because that is where my superpower kicks in: persistence.
A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on its own wings.
My whole work life I have been focussing on the opportunities and challenges of digitalisation and its impact on people.
Since founding WIRED Campus – an academy and consultancy for transformation and innovation – in 2013, I have been working with training and consulting people.
For the last two years before starting Circular Horizon my main focus has been on innovation, cultural change, and sustainability within a Suisse consultancy: 8 people, 6 nationalities, 3 countries, no offices anywhere. I know first-hand how to design a work life culture in a company where physical presence is the exception and collaborating virtually is the normal.
I combine 20 years of experience in corporates and the start-up world. I have been working for and with companies like AUDI, Axel Springer, BASF, Condé Nast, Estée Lauder, Hyper Island, Ricola, Ricolab, and ZEIT Verlag.
I am a trained business coach and trainer, and guide-in-training of the Delicate Lodge Teachings, a training on self-leadership and circular organisations based on a Native American tradition.
Most important, I am a mother and wife. My intention and my goal is to leave the world and humanity in a better place than it is right now. I am on my path to contribute to that sustainable change in the world that I see is needed.
About Circular Horizon
We need to change and strive for an economic, societal, and environmental system that respects and supports all life forms. With Circular Horizon, I intend to contribute my part to that shift towards a sustainable and respectful way of doing business, working together, and living our lives.
Circular Horizon has a meaning to me. Circular stands for the circle of life. We need to come back to a way of living and working where we respect the circles of life, where we live in tune with these circles and where we are capable of self-sustaining us. The horizon is that vision, the goal that we are seeing. We are not there yet, however we have it at clear sight.
Circular Horizon is my own little company – me, myself and I.
For more complex, extensive projects, I can rely on a strong network of experts from various disciplines that has grown over the years.
