Ralf Kapfberger

Born in Fürth in 1961 and raised in the Central Franconian region, where he finds science and business, culture and contemporary history more closely connected than almost anywhere else, Ralf Kapfberger and his wife have found a permanent place and roots in Regensburg. He has been a member of the CONTUR team as a trainer since 2012 and focuses on conducting measures on the topics of leadership development, communication and conflict management.

Due to his studies in education, sociology and psychology with a focus on adult education and graduation as a certified pedagogue, he came into contact with the ideas of humanistic psychology as embodied for him by Prof. Schulz von Thun, whose thoughts Ralf Kapfberger describes as his point of orientation. He complemented this basis with a training in systemic consulting, coaching and supervision (ISYS Regensburg) as well as with a certification as European eLearning Manager (CELM, Steinbeis University, Institute for Learning Design + Management, Lucerne, CH). He is passionate about teaching at the University of Regensburg.

In his professional career, he gained several years of experience (also in a leading position) in training and personnel development of international industrial companies, focusing on the topics of leadership development and change management. His work at CONTUR focuses on the development, implementation and execution of leadership training and programs for (international) executives, online and onsite, as well as consulting and coaching, especially on leadership topics. In addition, he is passionate about moderation and self-motivation for experienced leaders.

As a passionate guitar player, Ralf Kapfberger writes songs for his band “Rambler5”, composes the songs and occasionally performs. Together with his wife, he always takes off for long bike tours of several weeks (muscle bike – no eBike) and cycled through and around, among others, the Baltic Sea, Italy, France … and always plans longer tours, where they can meet people, nature and culture as slow travelers.
