About this blog

Hi, my name is Cosima. In my past 36 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. I have an academic background in Computer Science in Medicine, in Psychology and in Coaching.

Besides that I am an eternal student of life. I care about sustainability. I enjoy sharing and meaningful networking e.g. at (un)conferences – and I love running outdoors.

This is my blog in progress… (since 2016)

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



Share & care




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 German. 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/
