Trainer, Team Facilitator, Executive Coach
As a values-based Certified Coach Monika draws from 10 years of experience from coaching business owners, teams, and professionals in transition in corporate and private practice. Before starting her coaching career Monika worked as an employee, e.g. in horticulture and tourism, in her home-country Germany, in Italy and Canada. Those corporate experiences fuelled her desire to support her clients in creating meaningful and enjoyable work and life experiences that are in full alignment with each person’s unique set of gifts, challenges, values, purpose and vision.
Having faced several major transitions in her own life, Monika knows how challenging yet ultimately beneficial and freeing change can be. Combining kindness and empathy with her eagerness to create internal and external results with her clients, Monika brings a gentle yet firm, results-focused approach to her coaching interactions that still leaves enough room for a person’s or team’s individual needs and wants.
Monika is a published author (in her horticultural years she wrote two books for hobby gardeners), an accomplished trainer, and a communication specialist, fluent in English and German. She brings a “Can do” attitude and a sense of playfulness, possibility and pragmatism to the VIVO team.
