Work with Lena
I’m an effective, empathic team builder who deeply cares about people, and I thrive on helping the people in my team be successful. Currently, I’m looking to join an organisation that cares about inclusion and would love to work with a bunch of great people (either remotely or in Berlin). I’m always interested in getting to know new people and environments and learning about new opportunities.

Beliefs and values that guide my work
- People first. In the end, people always matter most. Openness, caring, participatory management, and fostering trust-based relationships through clear communication help put people first in what we do.
- Diversity and inclusion matter. Striving to be more diverse and inclusive is the only right thing to do. Only diverse teams in inclusive organisations can build appropriate solutions to the problems that humanity is facing.
- I’m here to serve, support, and empower people. I’m here to help people, teams and organisations succeed. Setting clear expectations, goals, coaching people, and holding each other accountable helps us grow together.
- Learning matters. Organisations, teams, and people greatly benefit from continuously learning, and all of us need to keep learning from each other.
