How to Infuence in German
"It was my second day in Germany starting my journey to find a job and complete my career as an Ophthalmologist (Eye doctor), when I met Dilyana as my teacher.
It was clear for me... she was doing it in a different way, she loved her work and got her energy and creativity out of this love. She didn't stick to the standard methods of teaching in language courses... It's the creativity and the ability to keep you focused and engaged learning the language in spite of the long 5 hour lessons... She was amazingly able to integrate with different people from different countries and different cultures, languages and different goals for learning the language.
Later on I realized that she had not only language talent, with 5 languages that she could speak fluently, but also a talent to inspire and motivate me in one of the most stressful periods in my life.
She knew that two of my colleagues and I had very important job interviews in Germany within the 4 weeks of this intensive course. A few days before the interview she offered to sit with us and play the role of the future boss, practicing the interview.
I realized later on after my interview how beneficial that practice was for me. It helped me to know how I could influence and impress the interviewers and how I could sometimes direct the interview and utimately get the job... and that was the happy ending: I got my job as an eye doctor in Germany. It was also the start... now I can be funny in German, dream in German :) mmm and sometimes even be angry in German.
Let's summarize it in few words... it was clear how Dilyana loved working with people in a way where she could see the results of her work positively influencing people's lives. I am not surprised at all that she is now practicing life coaching professionally because she was always doing the same job unconsciously... as a "life coach".
