Björn Knothe

CEO at division one GmbH, Stuttgart (Germany)
  “I found the time spent in training as a Systemic Business Coach at oezpa GmbH in Bornheim (Cologne / Bonn) to be very positive. The training management made very high demands on the participants. The trainers are highly qualified coaches who convey the content of the training very well. In addition, I have continuously learned through the versatile views of the other participants. The reflections with the other participants coupled with the feedback from the training management have a lot of times opened my eyes and made my own development strong. In addition, the heterogeneous composition of the participants enormously enriches learning. It is necessary to actively participate in all blocks to meet the requirements. The one-year Systemic Business Coach training was intense, and at this time I certainly learned the skills from oezpa to work as a Systemic Coach. I can only recommend the training at oezpa. I feel very well prepared to work as a Systemic Business Coach.”


oezpa was founded in 1994 by Prof. Dr. Hüseyin Özdemir (born in 1960, Istanbul) and Mrs. Barbara Lagler Özdemir (born in 1964, Lucerne) in Berlin.
Our team comes from national and international organizational development work. We have worked in national and international companies as executives, internal consultants, coaches and trainers.

In addition, we have gained external consulting experience in various consulting companies. These experiences ensure the continuous professionalization and further development of the oezpa Institute

Since its foundation, oezpa has established itself in the field of organizational development. In its open training courses, oezpa qualify independent consultants and employees from organizations in leadership and consultancy work as well as in coaching. Thus, oezpa is also active as the “Advisor to the Advisor” or “Coach of the Coach”.

In addition to the home market of Germany and Switzerland, oezpa was able to carry out comprehensive consulting projects throughout the world every year, such as in the USA, China, Turkey, England, Poland, France, Italy, Malaysia, Switzerland, Ireland, Peru, Spain, Denmark and Austria.

In 1999, parallel to our consulting activities, our visiting professorships and teaching assignments began at universities. First at the University of Wuppertal, then at the Center for Leadership Studies (University of Exeter, England), then at the University of the Arts (Institute of Electronic Business, Berlin), at the Nordakademie (the University of Applied Sciences) and at the Fresenius Hochschule Cologne. Other visiting professorships at the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad / India (IIAM) and ESAN University Lima / Peru followed as part of our group relations activities.

In 2008 the oezpa institute publishing house (edition oezpa) was founded. The aim of the institute’s publishing house is to make a contribution to practical research in the field of organizational development, coaching, leadership and project management by means of print and audiovisual publications.

To help our customers to be more successful and satisfied in their roles and companies is my heart's desire! In the process, I will keep learning new things and try to incorporate my findings into my consulting work.
