New structure, expansion and new location
The successful development of our activities, the market and the chances and possibilities of the overall situation led to significant developments in our company – both in the individual areas and in the company as a whole. Especially with proTalent (assessment and development of potential for adults), CACB (assessment and coaching on behalf of companies) and PsYkids (psychological practice for children, teenagers and families), the demand is such that we have adapted our company structure and expanded the areas. Our headquarters have also been significantly upgraded through the purchase of an ideally suited property with sufficient space.
The name of our group of companies is now Kairos Group Ltd. (formerly CICB Center of Intercultural Competence Ltd). In ancient Greece, the term Kairos describes a god of luck who catches the right moment to make a decision: thanks to knowledge, experience, intuition and self-confidence. This symbolism applies to all areas of our activities where we support our customers and patients in recognizing the right time and implementing the right procedure.
The corporate structure of Kairos Group Ltd:
- CICB Center of Intercultural Competence: Promotion and development of intercultural competence through presentations, courses, preparation for foreign assignments, company and personality analyses. Head: Thomas Baumer.
- CACB Center for assessment and coaching: selection and development assessments, coaching and outplacement. Head: Thomas Baumer.
- proTalent practice for coaching and psychology: situation analyses (strenghts, weaknesses, potentials, interests, limits and timeframes for the development), talent and personality analyses, professional and private personality development, coaching. Heads: Thomas Baumer and Dr. Julie Baumer.
- Center for Child Support and Development, with the psychology practice PsYkids and the creation of two new areas for occupational therapy and speech therapy. Head: Dr. Julie Baumer.
