About my notebook

Hi, my name is Cosima Laube.  I am a citizen of this world, initially born in Germany, currently living in Switzerland and always at home at those places where my heart is.

Currently I am earning my living as a professional coach, agile consultant, people gardener and corporate rebel. In the past years, I already worked as nurse assistant, gardener, sales person, mental coach, software developer, MS Excel & Access trainer, project manager, software engineer, scrum master, public speaker, team coach, organizational coach and trainer.

Since 2019 I am working fully independent with my own company and enjoying it so far (even though sometimes it feels still scary).

I have an academic background in Computer Science in Medicine, in Psychology and in Coaching (ICF PCC) and 40 years of life experience. Besides all that I am an eternal student of life. I deeply care about sustainability. I am an introvert who enjoys sharing and meaningful networking e.g. at (un)conferences – and I love running & gravelbiking outdoors.

Since 2016 this is my private blog in progress; kind of my professional personal notebook.

The acronym L.I.S.T.E.N. outlines my initial blog’s mission and stands for:



Share & care


Empathy Practise


I mostly blog in English to spread the information as wide as possible (and also to improve myself in writing English :)). Sometimes I will also use my native language. So don’t be confused about that. If you feel you really want some of my German stuff to be translated, just let me know.

11/2018: new platform is up and running – hooray! (Details)
: Migrated the initial grav-based version of my blog to WordPress (got most of the old blog’s content moved – except some older posts from 09/2016-07/2016 and sadly ALL the comments :-/)
07/2016: started with a “manual” installation of grav under URL https://blog.cosima-laube.de/
