For the Leaders and Teams of our Future

 

leading  GAME-CHANGERS
to their highest potential

Are you ready to identify your next best move on your leadership journey?

leadership is a way of being: it is a choice rather than a trait. We are all leaders, and our impact on others reveals more about ourselves than who we say we are.

I coach exceptional leaders who are ready to challenge their self-imposed beliefs and expand their impact, and I coach star teams to better communicate, collaborate and build the workplaces, cultures and countries of our future.

Are you ready to be part of this wave?

My clients include executives and teams at strategic consultancy firms, hedge funds, Swiss and global banks, pharma companies, as well as private bankers, owners of trading agencies, marketing managers, entrepreneurs, NGO employees, lawyers and university researchers.

ARE YOU Ready to upscale your leadership?

Based on the most researched theories of leadership, our coaching journey will support you in:

  • Building more self-awareness and resilience, despite the circumstances
  • Choosing the skills you need in your job to upgrade your leadership impact
  • Stopping the behaviors that are getting in the way of capping your effectiveness
  • Shining a light on the leader you know you are
  • Crafting a leadership plan that will support you in fulfilling your legacy

In summary, become the leader people want to follow.

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 in the way that will serve you. 

I base my coaching sessions on 5 different modalities: The Leadership Circle ProfileCo-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.

Your power, truth and unique gifts are already within you, and by accessing them you are EMPOWERED to create the impact you’ve always wanted. 

You have it in you – let it blossom

I choose to support the courageous individuals who want to challenge the status quo and inspire future generations, and I choose to support organisations in creating their only sustainable competitive advantage, their leadership culture.

My top values are learning, relationships and leadership.

Let’s design our world.

There are always many versions for the same story. For change to happen, we must lean into our courage and question what we are responsible for:  the 2% truth.

  1. Are we doing our best to integrate the fears, prejudices and perspectives of our constituents?
  2. Are we challenging ourselves to uphold what we stand and are asking for?

This is my definition of conscious leadership.

  • Are you satisfied with your team’s system of feedback and accountability?

“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. 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 a relatively 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.”
