Consulting & Coaching


Peter has helped people in businesses of all kinds be more successful at what they do for 30 years. He has successfully accompanied clients on their path through organizational change, navigating challenges with simplicity, clarity, and elegance. His perspective on interpersonal and organizational matters shines a clarifying and relieving light on the dynamics you want to get better at and need to master. Through working with him, you will elevate your game, navigate challening dynamics with more ease, become a pro at having difficult conversations skillfully, and express yourself consicely, confidently and elegantly.

Born and raised in Germany, Peter has been based in the US for the past 35 years. His degree is in Organizational Development and Social Transformation. He is a life-long student of social psychology with a focus on communication, situational status, gender differences and how people influence each other. Based in San Diego, CA, Peter Fahrenkamp M.A. works with clients anywhere via phone, email, video conference, and when possible, in person.

The idea of working with you is to create insights and breakthroughs for you - when you need them - rather than spending a lot of time together. Aside from specific engagements, such as mediation services, working together by the hour is really counter-productive and a potential conflict of interest. It’s like mechanics making more money the longer they take and the longer you’re without your car. Ideally, your mechanic is compensated for the quality and speed of the work: you hire them to improve your car, and the faster the work is done, the better - including for you, because you’re back on the road faster.

Peter only works with a handful of clients at any one time. Accompanying a client closely becomes part of his daily life and attention even between sessions. The container he offers for that kind of close accompaniment is based on a quarterly compensation agreement for unlimited access to his services via video-conference, email, and phone, and in person when possible. When working with you, his turn-around time is 24hrs max, but often he can be available on short notice or even in real-time. This is especially useful when you get ready for high-stakes situations, or when unforeseen challenging situations come up: you will be able to count on Peter to be at your side - to help you navigate whatever dynamic you are dealing with.
