As a certified coach and intercultural trainer I work with people in international settings. I support you in your new role as an expat or in starting your new life as an expat partner. If you are a local and have to manage a multi-national team, I am also at your side. I help you find your passion and purpose in life and at work. Whether you face the challenges of cross-cultural work, remote teams or are adapting to your new life abroad: I help you build meaningful personal and professional relations.
I believe that cultural differences can be strategically used to develop people, teams, and organisations. My coaching and training will lead to personal growth and help you find your passion and purpose and develop your full potential.
I spent over 15 years in leadership positions in various industries managing small and extremely large multi-national teams. This is how I learned to communicate clearly. I know the challenges of cross-cultural communication and the cultural differences in leadership styles. My clients deal with a diverse work environment that is constantly moving to a more remote and sometimes isolated working style. I support leaders in staying engaged and committed and in fostering commitment, engagement and loyalty in their team members they rarely see in person.
I have also been and expat and an expat partner for over 15 years. So I know what it means to start your new life abroad whether you have the fancy new role or have to give your life a new direction as the trailing spouse. Having gone through the different stages of expatriation several times, I know how you can feel excited and lonely at the same time. I know how frustrated we feel when culture shock hits and how to get beyond.
My mission is to support people in creating a passionate and purposeful life abroad and in improving their abilities to work better with others across cultural differences. I aspire to create a sense of belonging in everyone I encounter, show my true self and stay committed to my ideas and plans.
Currently I am living in Basel, Switzerland, and serve a lot of my clients online. I am an ICA Certified Professional Coach, a certified intercultural Trainer (BAMIK), and a member of ICF and a member of FEW – For Empowering Women.
