Kathrin believes that in service of creating a world where everyone can thrive, we need smart leaders who are curious, grounded, open, and passionate about what they do. Despite the “always on” pressure of their daily reality, the most powerful and effective leaders cultivate time for silence and introspection in order to sharpen their intellect and access their intuition. This allows authentic and effective leadership which inspires everyone to be fully engaged, even in times of uncertainty and constant change.

Kathrin is an experienced organizational development consultant, facilitator, and executive coach with twenty years of experience in the Tech Industry, where she ran Executive Development at Google, and held various leadership roles at Oracle. She is a sought-after speaker and has contributed to various publications and conferences like Wisdom 2.0 and the Harvard Business Review.

Kathrin is originally from Germany, has lived in five countries, and worked in over twenty.  She has studied with some of the most distinguished thought leaders in her field, and works with the brightest innovators in Silicon Valley. She has a unique combination of business knowledge, cross-cultural intelligence, sharp focus, and powerful intuition.

Kathrin enjoys running and hiking. She loves traveling and connecting with people and places. She has a regular yoga and mindfulness practice.  She is a closet opera singer and violinist.

My experience working with Kathrin has been one of the best learning experiences I have had. As my leadership coach she was able to drastically transform my capabilities in a short time frame. The improvements over the course of our engagement were not only noticeable to myself, but also to the senior leaders I work with on a regular basis. I have even been able to help relay the valuable lessons on to my team, which has helped many people benefit rather than just myself.
