Hi, my name is Julia Culen. Thank you for visiting me and my blog “stories from the field”.
WHAT I AM WRITING
I write about consulting, transformation, my consulting projects, business development, leadership, change management, experiments, experiences, projects, companies, clients and people that I find exciting and inspiring. All posts are inspired by real-life – They are stories from the field.
WHY I AM WRITING
I write to get ideas and thoughts out of my head. Another reason is – of course – to share ideas, convey messages and get inputs and feedback from people around the world. Writing the posts is pure pleasure and joy and it flows naturally and very lightly.
HOW AND WHY I STARTED THIS BLOG
Encouraged by a client I started this blog in April 2015 to share my thoughts and ideas with a broader business community. I can interact with the readers and I can use social media. I get feedback immediately. Every post is formed around one basic message/idea and it is a challenge to keep it short and precise.
A NOTE ABOUT MY ENGLISH
I am not a native English speaker. Obviously. I love to write in English, it has its own quality, easygoing, fresh and light.Sometimes it is hard to express complex ideas in a simple but precise language in a foreign language, and for sure with a “German” accent. I decided that “good enough is good enough” in this case.
All pictures are taken by myself and I am choosing them very intuitively: which picture expresses the emotional undertone of my post best?
HOW IDEAS EMERGE
During the course of the last years I shifted gears from being a very busy consultant and Managing Partner to working much less, traveling much more and practicing the Art of “Just Being”: A very active way of doing less and less. Ideas are finding me, like they want to be expressed through me. In addition to that, ideas are grounded and emerging from experiences and conversations with my husband and business partner Christian Mayhofer. He is a great listener and sparring partner and he is also checking everything I write before publishing.
I have been working in the field of corporate development for about 18 years now. During my studies of International Business I started to work with The Boston Consulting Group, moving on to Unicredit Group, followed by Beratergruppe Neuwaldegg as Managing Partner. In 2014 I started my own company CULEN MAYHOFER PARTNER together with my partner and husband Christian Mayhofer.
I live in Vienna and Upper Austria.
