Hi, I am Hedi Schaefer.
I am part of the first Design Thinking generation in Germany and have trained, coached, simply worked with and for people, their purposes and goals for over 10 years. I am fascinated by peoples' power and ability to change their life for the better, when they find their true passion, do the things they love. 
Of course, my life is also a journey. A living prototype in fact. I have been a traveling analyst by studying musicology and media in Berlin and Seoul. A creative assistant by working for artists like Herbert Grönemeyer and Christoph Schlingensief. A Design Thinking explorer at the Hasso Plattner Institut and a scholar of coaching tools and mindsets like resilience, systemic organizational development, Yoga and many more. I am a co-author of a design thinking book (Design Thinking: Die agile Innovations-Strategie, HAUFE Verlag 2018), creator of trainings and strategies, founder of companies and initiatives and a family person.
Topics I love: # New Work, # Digitalization, # Female Leadership, # Vision&Creation. See my company here: Innovation Gym
