LEadership and Team Culture strategist

For individuals and teams who care


to their highest potential

I coach leaders in business and finance to find and live their vision, and I coach teams to find integration, and collaborate to build better workplaces, cultures and countries. Only through conscious, Aware, leadership can this goal become a reality.

I believe that the solution to our many problems is through conscious leadership: we are all leaders, and how we show up speaks more about ourselves than about who we believe we are.

My quest is to support leaders in creating integrated cultures and communities that thrive on differences, acceptance and respect.

my Clients include partners at strategic consultancy firms, portfolio managers at hedge funds, directors at Swiss banks, private bankers, marketing managers, entrepreneurs, governmental organizations and university researchers.


Imagine living your life by design, not by default. Imagine waking up each day with the exciting goal of implementing your own, specific, vision in the world. What would be possible? How would your day feel like?

The strategy consists of two mandatory steps:

1- Build on your inner strengths and competencies

2- Conquer your fears and perceived barriers that hold you back. Dismantle every negative thought into its atomic size and rebuild it the way it needs to be. 

I base my coaching on 5 different modalities: The Leadership Circle Profile, Co-active coaching, somatic coaching, neuroscience of coaching,  and Organization and Relationship Systems Coaching (ORSC). I arm you with the right, tailored-to-your-need, tools and techniques. The result is a transformational process that will keep you focused on your designed vision.

Coaching has long been lauded as one of the most transformative learning interventions, and research indicates that people derive a host of benefits from partnering with a coach.

Your power, truth and unique gifts are already within you, and by accessing them you are EMPOWERED to create the life you’ve always wanted. Walking the talk and not just talking the talk is what sets me apart, and my 10-year experience in the finance industry brings a familiarity my clients appreciate.

You have it in you – let it blossom

I choose to support the courageous individuals who want to lead by example and inspire future generations, and I choose to support organisations in having a real definition of a “Diverse and Inclusive” workforce. 

My top values are community, integrity, passion, and vision.

This is my dream world. What is yours?

Featured Programs

There are many valid reasons that could explain what is going on in our world. There are also two versions for the same story. For change to happen, it is time to lean into our courage and question what we are responsible for:  the 2% truth.

Are we doing our best to integrate the fears and prejudices of society and challenging ourselves to uphold what we stand and are asking for?

This is the definition of conscious leadership.

“I had a wonderful learning experience during my sessions with Doris. I discovered new techniques and concepts that helped me reshape many of my most critical relationships (esp. within my immediate family). I have become a better person – and a more self-aware one – thanks to this joint work. I am astonished how much I changed within such a short period of time.”

“Doris, is a soft yet energetic and driven individual. She takes you through a journey which is so deeply embedded within you and takes the time to peel every layer so that you challenge your status quo. She is truly inspirational and encourages you to grow in all aspects of your life. Irrespective of how hard that journey maybe, a true coach is one who approaches it with a gentle, soft skill which in my mind she has clearly accomplished!”




“At 45, while proud of my achievements, I was feeling demotivated and stuck. I constantly felt like I wasn’t living up to my potential. Equally strong was the little voice in my head saying that I should just be grateful for what I have. I needed help with figuring it all out and Doris was the right person to lead me through the process. In just a few sessions, Doris helped me gain some clarity and inner peace and get rid of guilty feelings. I also learned some re-framing techniques that I can use at any moment.”
