Deniz's Profile

Deniz Kayadelen, a M.Sc. business psychologist, is a multicultural person of Turkish descent who was born and raised in Germany. While she received her primary and high school education in Frankfurt, frequent visits to Turkey throughout her life helped her to form strong ties also in Turkey. Deniz's university education had been a bright reflection of her enriching life experience in two countries and cultures. Deniz became the first student to achieve a double diploma (business and organizational psychology) upon successfully completing challenging requirements of both Istanbul (Turkey) and Ruhr University (Germany). Furthering her brilliant academic endeavor, she successfully earned her M.Sc. degree on Business Psychology in Bochum University. She wrote her master thesis about intercultural management and success of German executives in Turkey. During her extensive research, she interviewed more than 90 German managers from leading companies.

Her multicultural life and psychology background brings her to cooperate with Principal Coaching.

Deniz's real life experience of fusing two different cultures, directed her towards actively working on cross-cultural matters. She is trained by Philippe Rosinski and holds the "Coaching Across Cultures" Certificate. She also gained work experience in intercultural coaching and training by developing and organizing intercultural workshops and web based trainings both in Ruhr University and Inlingua Language School.

Currently, Deniz is working in Germany as a project manager in the area of intercultural qualification and human resource specialist in Salaw Group.

Deniz's success in academia and workplace is accompanied by her excellent record in sports. Deniz's ambitious character and self-discipline has grown with her swimming career. She has won many awards in open water swimming marathons. She was in the first place at 2007 Istanbul Bosphorus Marathon (7 km, from Asian to European coast). She likes challenges in life and believes in inner strengths of mind and body. Her life motto is "never give up".

Deniz is collaborating now in "Principal Coaching" closely with Eva and her intercultural team on various projects such as the "Coaching Across Cultures" project which is created by Philippe Rosinski from Belgium.
