...and I'm here to help you create a brand people cherish and to lead a business that's built by your goals and vision, not others' expectations.
I am here to inspire you to realize and use the power that organizational culture and narratives and their reinforcing stories have over our work, the goals we hold, and the connection we crave.
If only I had applied this to my own life much earlier too: Maybe I could have avoided burnout. Could have navigated on-the-job challenges more elegantly. Could have made smarter startup decisions, instead of doubting myself and starting from scratch over and over again. And in my corporate life, I might have more easily built upon the successes I already had.
Recognizing and expanding one's leadership culture and narrative means knowing oneself, and too often we focus all our energies on the business itself and on our teams, losing sight of how to be our best self so we can better contribute to the full picture that is the organization and its deeper purpose.
I'm here to open your (and your team's) eyes to the stories we tell ourselves and the limitations we are imprisoned by - and possibilities we thereby are blind to or ignore.
So if you find yourself in yet another moment of stuckness, of mind wavering, of questioning choices or capabilities, of wondering where your business or team should go next, invite me to help you seize the opportunity to discover and shape the culture and narrative that set you free, elevate your business and nurture its brand.
And now on to some wonderfully kind words.

Last but not least, a short & sweet bio — just in case you're curious:
A Short & Sweet Bio
Christine has worked around the world in various industries, such as healthcare, hospitality and aerospace, making a difference in IT and business operations — from call centers to convention management and quite a few things in between. She has a BSc and an MBA, and participated in executive programs at Oxford University and UCLA. Her leadership experience includes developing extraordinary teams, strategies and service models, especially in times of change and uncertainty, and she knows what it means to (re)connect people around a strong purpose and mission. Organizations she worked with include Fortune 500 companies and leading European brands as well as startups and health- and community-focused nonprofits.
Some years into her corporate journey, she discovered her intuitive knack for seeing the hidden potential in people and inspiring them to unpack, energize, and realize it. This discovery led to her most cherished on-the-job experiences: watching team members grow and glow as they dared to step into a new story of what they are capable of and can aspire to be. What could possibly come close?
These days, she also enjoys gifting some of her time to youngsters and high-potential women who dream of becoming bold leaders, and since 2020 she has been a member of the United Nations Women's Industry Disruptor incubator program.
