Miriam SchlUeter

Over the last 25 years I have gathered extensive experience across different industries, cultures and hierarchical levels as a leadership development consultant and executive coach. The majority of my work has been on designing and facilitating development interventions for individuals, teams and business areas aiming at unlocking their full potential to achieve business results. In addition to this I have been faculty member for coaching with at the University of Applied Sciences Northern Switzerland since 2011. I also authored text book articles on leadership, coaching and burnout prevention.

As a leadership development expert and psychologist I seek to bring together the best of both the results-driven business world and psychological insights. I am focused, target-oriented and resource-activating. My clients feedback to me that they appreciate my wide range of experience, my authenticity and good sense of humor I bring to my work. Be it in 1:1 coaching, training or workshop facilitation I am keen on getting the best out of individuals and teams as well as of myself.

As a native Swiss my working languages are (Swiss-)German and English. I co-facilitates in French, too.
