About Claudia

CPCC & ACC INTERNATIONAL COACH, MENTOR, & TRAINER

“People don’t change!” many say. I am an international co-active coach who believes that changing habits, changing ways of looking at relationships and situations, changing behaviors and beliefs are ALL possible. I empower individuals to access their inner leader, strength, power, and compassion in order to move towards deep lasting change, but, willingness to move out of their comfort zone and eagerness to explore and grow are required first steps.

As a Partner for Change, I challenge my clients to get in action and make their intentions real. My clients are being encouraged and supported to find their own answers, discover their authentic self and live a conscious, meaningful and joyful life.

SPECIALTY & OWN PRACTICE

After advising and mentoring high executives from the European market in their careers for over 10 years, my specialty today is helping professionals, entrepreneurs, and parents acquire the most important leadership skills: to gain PERSPECTIVES in how they look at their life, create AWARENESS of their inner self, make CHOICES in how to live and take RESPONSIBILITY for their impact on others. When coaching values are clarified, learning is deepened, new insights are gained and clarity attained, CONFIDENCE is rebuilt and with it, the APPRECIATION of qualities and skills, that had been hidden, arises.

USING CURIOSITY TO EXPLORE, HAVING THE ABILITY TO CO-CREATE AND VULNERABILITY TO SHARE PROVIDES A SAFE SPACE FOR MY CLIENTS TO ACCESS AND DISCOVER THEIR GREATNESS AND FULL POTENTIAL. PLAYFULNESS AND HUMOR BRING LIGHTNESS TO THE TRANSFORMATION PROCESS.

COLLABORATIONS

As a contractor of BetterUp, I support my clients, employees of leading international companies, in stepping into sustained behavioral change and transform the quality of the leader’s working and personal life.

I contribute and participate in the expansion of Gozamm, founded by Gonan and Johan Premfors whose parenting approach is about finding the internal strength and wisdom in everyone and ultimately create greater self-reliance and self-trust. Today, I co-lead their 12-week online Parentology courses.

GIVING BACK

THE VALUE OF GIVING BACK IS HIGHLY IMPORTANT  FOR ME AND WITH IT COMES THE JOY IN SUPPORTING YOUNGER WOMEN IN THEIR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT.

I volunteer as an International coach for a non-profit organization called The Coaching Fellowship where we provide executive coaching to young female leaders around the globe for a greater impact in the world. For this Non-Profit, I am also a Member of the Council, have been part of the Fellow Admission Committee and co-lead the interview process of new coaches to the Program.

The mentor hat is also worn when supporting students going through the 10-month CTI Leadership Program.

PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

The first important business experience started in Spain at one of the top leading American Executive Search firms Heidrick & Struggles. At the Barcelona and Madrid offices I worked closely with Firm Partners to place Executives for healthcare, consumer goods, and other competitive markets around Europe. My deep inter-cultural understanding, multinational exposure, and fluency in four languages allowed me to work on both local and international projects.

Building on my international network and knowledge of Executive Search Process, in 2007 I co-founded my own middle management recruiting company together with a Partner.  Clients valued my global exposure, strong customer service high touch orientation, honesty, and commitment to results. Experience and dedication generated strong client retention and referrals.

CURIOSITY + CONSCIOUSNESS = CHOICE
