my name is Nicolas Endres, most people call me Nicki. I work as a facilitator, personal and organisational coach, mediator and educator. I also help run a co-creative, self-organised co-working community in Berlin. Besides that I teach courses on inner science and meditation and give public talks on science and philosophy. You can find out more on the different areas of my work on the page below.
In my work as an organisational coach I support teams and organisations in their transition to new ways of collaboration, participation, relating and being. To do so I utilise the full range of my expertise in psychology, neuroscience, philosophy, agile management, coaching, mediation and mindfulness-based practices. Depending on the needs of the organisation my work usually takes the form of:
Establishing a culture of psychological safety, trust and accountability
Implementing healthy communication habits, effective meeting practices and decision-making techniques
Navigating complexity and creating clarity and alignment regarding vision, mission and values
Guiding the transition towards becoming an agile organisation with an iterative-incremental workflow
Facilitating effective retrospectives to become an adaptive and learning organisation
The coaching process is similar to gardening. If the client represents the seedling on its path to becoming a beautiful fully-grown plant, the coach is like a gardener who can provide a nurturing environment in which the plant can flourish. Making sure that the plant has enough sunlight, water and nutrients the gardener creates the right conditions for the plant to then grow naturally and autonomously ultimately unfolding its inherent potential.
So you can think of a coach as a compassionate friend who wants to see you flourish and supports you in any way possible. If you are interested in a coaching session write me via the contact form below.
Johan Galtung said: “Peace is when people solve their conflicts creatively and constructively”. This sentence could be seen as the essence of mediation. I offer mediation in person in Berlin or via zoom. If you are interested in booking a mediation please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page.
Inner science course
The inner science course is an eight-week program of deep self-exploration. It combines the wisdom and meditative techniques of the ancient contemplative traditions of Buddhism and Daoism with the insights of modern psychology, neuroscience and philosophy. The goal of the course is to explore our inner worlds in order to understand ourselves better and become more mindful, compassionate and wise. To do so we look at our own minds as a kind of laboratory and our stream of consciousness as data which we can observe, understand and ultimately transform. The course combines theory and practice and integrates the scientific method and ideals with an approach of secular spirituality and existential philosophy.
I have given a number of talks at scientific conferences and festivals, mainly about psychological and philosophical topics. If you are interested in booking me for a talk send me a message using the contact form below.
