Executive Coaching

It is quite a challenge to become the best leader that you can be.
To create an organization where you want to be part of, in changing worlds. As a safe catalyst Saskia supports this process.  
She believes in conscious and value-based leadership.That requires openness and courage, to get close to the heart of what matters. And to act upon it – in connectivity. Using intuitive wisdom is an essential ingredient. Energy will flow, transitions will happen.
Saskia’s focus is to help leaders translate their mission into impactful behaviour and outcomes.

Saskia is a business leader with more than 20 years of experience in financial, commercial, HR and general management roles in international FMCG companies.

After her longstanding career in the corporate world, Saskia pursued her path by co-founding an independent investment PE fund and managing it to a successful finish. The entrepreneurship, the dealmaking, value building of portfolio companies and shareholder management brought new scope and responsibility. Parallel to her entrepreneurial adventures, she also started with Executive Coaching focusing on senior management(teams) in profit and non-profit.

Saskia has completed several intensive trainings through the years to enhance her capabilities in Coaching, Energy diagnostics and in Mediation.

As she describes her path now, “I have always expanded my horizon beyond what I know and understand. I am curious. That is why I have worked in different business fields and roles and in various settings. By integrating my experiences – the good ones and bad ones, I have developed foremost a deeper understanding of what drives and helps leaders, and what it requires to energize and transform leadership with concrete results. They allow me to operate on the intersection between hard and soft, and to work with the undercurrents. Impactful Coaching means to me: Connecting Head, Heart and Hands.”
