Who am I?

I am called Stephan Szugat.

What is my Story?

In business life, it all started with an apprenticeship in Wholesale and Exports.

After that I was going to study but decided to stop it and went to work. It happened to me that I worked mostly for North-America based Company Groups.

Right from the start I had the chance to learn all about Finance and Accounting up to Company Group Consolidations, Controlling and Business Processes.

By the End of 1999 I decided to work on a self-employed basis, thus I could serve more companies at the same time. With the time, the assignments changed towards Interim-Management assignments up to the position of a CFO.

Industry Knowledge

Not to mention all the different industries which I had the chance to learn about:

  • Car Repair and Sales,
  • Waste Management,
  • Venture Capital,
  • Personal Recruitment,
  • Software Development,
  • Special Ceramic Productions and
  • Manufacturing of Machines for Production Automation for Life Science Products and Electric Motors.

Over the last years I recognized that I was getting more involved with Business Strategy as well as coaching. The latter took a while for me to clearly recognize, but anytime I presented the numbers of a business, the discussions were going away from the numbers towards Strategy and Coaching.

At the beginning, the coaching was more like a confirmation / feedback of the work and ideas of the respective CEO.

Therefore, I decided to learn more about coaching, especially how to do it in a structured way. Today I love to coach as it always works, and it could be seen in the person coached immediately. Thus, you and I see the results immediately.

But sometimes it may take some time to see the impact. Though, patience and the willingness to work on yourself if very important.

But don’t take my word for it, prove it to yourself. Check for yourself if you are ready for coaching…go here to find out.

How was the Name S2 Executive Coaching created?

S2 is one way how the initials of my Name could be visualized. This is a far more appropriate way as to use my initials in the business name. If you know German History, you understand why.

Unique Coaching Model -Interrelations-

Due to the above experiences, it was clear to me that my coaching approach must reflect my knowledge about Finance & Accounting, Business Process Management, and all the other complex issues of Business Management. Therefore, the -Interrelations- Coaching Model consists of seven business areas which could be flexibly arranged and cover the areas of high influence in any business.
