Gabriele Euchner, MBA

certified: Business Coach (INLPTA), NLP-Master (DVNLP), ​HOGAN Management Assessment.

 I am a highly experienced business coach & sparring partner for managers and executives from various functional areas, industries - worldwide.

My coaching focus: career counseling, leadership communication and resilience. Get clarity, focused and get going are the pillars of my coaching.


In 10,000+ coaching hours, I have been privileged to help executives from different hierarchy levels, functional areas and industries to redefine their career strategies, competency profiles and find their dream job.

Another coaching focus: individual communication is the most important leadership skill. Learning about your own communication style and its effectiveness is key to successful leadership.

A third coaching focus: maintaining and strengthening resilience is indisputably the most sustainable task of any leader, because leadership is a marathon, not a sprint.  


As a former Managing Director and Country Manager in the international consumer goods industry, I had the privilege to be confronted with and successfully managed all kinds of management challenges in Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the USA - be it in the market, people management and change, strategy and implementation. 

If you're coaching (Top) Managers, you should have been a (Top) Manager yourself.
