Rainer von LeoprechtingRainer von Leoprechting – is a Core Partner at Pro Action Learning. He comes from Germany and now lives in Ehrenhausen, Austria.

Rainer grew up in Trier/Mosel, Germany. Inspired by Jean Monnet’s practice he was active within the European Commission from 1994-2012. After many different functions in management and strategy, he founded the in-house consulting service which he lead until January 2012. In these years he introduced participatory and innovative methods like the Art of Participatory Leadership or Action Learning into the workings of the European institutions. Rainer is one of the inventors of the pro action café that has become one of the core processes widely shared within the Art of Hosting community. Rainer’s interventions combine many methods, like the full palette of Art of Hosting practices, Systemic Constellation Work, Action Learning, or process consultation à la Ed Schein and Peter Block. Together with his wife Lena he moved to Ehrenhausen in Austria in 2012 and started the Obenaus Living Community a place where people reconnect with their inner and outside nature. There they live in a community setting. In 2012 Rainer founded pro action learning to become a team of associates focussing on practices to enliven organizations. Rainer has invented the Storymaatcher (TM) approach and technology to match people with their desired future in life and work.

Rainer contributes as founder, consultant, and content giver for offers such as the Action Learning facilitation training. Rainer speaks German, French, and English. Contact Rainer at rainer@pro-action.eu
