Gabriele Euchner, MBA


International Speaker, Executive Coach & Sparring Partner for Manager, Author


Gabriele is THE expert on leadership in crises, communication skills as a leadership tool (change / transformational communication), and strengthening the resilience of employees and managers -  in the GSA- region and the USA. 

She is the "courage driver" in challenging times. With her mental strength and resilience, she has experienced and survived borderline experiences that would have brought many people down to their knees.
"Like a phoenix rising from the ashes" has unintentionally become Gabriele's principle in life. As a Christian and all alone, she was caught up in the Islamic revolution in Iran and had to hide for several weeks before she was able to leave the country. She was confronted with a cancer diagnosis and an expected life expectancy of six months, was bullied and dismissed as a top manager...and so much more. She overcame many obstacles in her life - both privately and as a manager, i.e., she had to learn from them and sometimes needed to reinvent herself.


In her talks, she speaks about discovering and using inner strengths and potentials, especially in difficult times. She says: "Everything we need is already in us!"

Gabriele Euchner has experience as Managing Director, General Manager of Central Europe, and General Manager of Switzerland in the consumer goods industry. Most recently, she worked as a Management Consultant for Kienbaum Consultants International in Munich and Atlanta, USA. She has extensive and long-standing leadership and management experience, as a speaker, consultant, and coach. She is very familiar with various management challenges from a strategic and operational perspective and managing employees (up to 12,000 sales partners).

From her personal experiences as a manager and leader herself, she knows that leadership is a marathon, not a sprint!

Her Mindset:

What if it does work out!
