Are you ready to transform the way your organisation works?


For the past few years, we have been connecting to and working with organisations and consultants who are developing new, healthier and more effective ways of working. Less hierarchical, more trusting, more creative – and with incredible results.

This is why, over the next 2 years, inTension is committed to accompany 4 or 5 nonprofit organisations and donors in developing their own exciting, innovative and effective ways of working which allow them to rise to a new level of performance in reaching their goals.

Supported by a network of cutting-edge consultants, forward-thinking donors, and nonprofits who are exploring new ways of working, we will work with you and the whole system (beneficiaries, donors, partners) you are part of to make this happen.

We are therefore calling out to 2-3 pioneering organisations or donors who are ready to take this leap, to transform themselves and the results they achieve. Does this resonate with you? Then…

Take the leap!

What do we stand for?


“inTension” refers to the inevitable tensions that arise as any group of individuals organise to achieve a goal. We are committed to supporting individuals and organisations to find balance within these tensions, and to lead the way towards a fully balanced life on this planet.

We understand personal and organizational development as continual processes of learning, which is why we prefer to accompany partners with long-term support, building learning communities including all our partners and co-creating new ways of working together.

How do we work with you?


We co-create with you the strategies and build the skills you need to achieve your goals.

We balance the development of your “technical skills” (fundraising, project cycle management, monitoring evaluation and learning (MEL), self-evaluation, security) with the strengthening of your “human skills” (strategic planning, leadership, team-building, mindfulness, communication) required to make organizations sustainable, effective and healthy places to work. We analyse together the entire system within which you work, how it impacts you and how you can impact it.

This integral approach, which blends the latest management theories with our decades of experience, includes coaching, trainings, facilitation, workshops, learning journeys and technical support.

Are you ready to lead the transformation and find balance with intention?

Who are we?


Mike Romig

I have been working for a decade in the nonprofit world, in particular in the human rights and peace building sectors. From working in organisational development in Geneva-based human rights organisations, I realised I wanted to support more organisations and to contribute to larger shifts in the non-profit sector as a whole. In 2014, I began working as an independent consultant in Geneva, Cairo and now Berlin, combining my MBA knowledge, coaching skills and experience to accompany organisations to become effective at reaching their goals and healthy places to work.

I have accompanied dozens of organizational development processes for organisations based in Europe and the MENA region, facilitating change processes, training teams, coaching leaders, and developing tools for monitoring, documentation, or internal coaching. I am fluent in English and French, have basic proficiency in German, and knowledge of Arabic.
