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

Gabriele Euchner

Excellent leadership is based on three pillars:

How do I lead myself? How do I lead my department, division, or the company? How do I lead others (teams, employees)?


Therefore, strengthening managers and leaders impacts employees and is the key to successful companies. My sparring focus is improving resilience, increasing career opportunities, and optimizing leadership style!


 As a former Managing Director and General Manager at various companies in the DACH region and the USA, I have obtained extensive experience and leadership skills. My national and international management experience ranges from strategic to operational topics, including managing teams and up to 12,000 sales partners. 


My home game is dealing successfully with intense, threatening, and unexpected situations. As a young student and Christian, I was caught in the middle of the Islamic civil war in Iran and had to hide for weeks before I could leave the country. I was confronted with a cancer diagnosis and an expected life expectancy of six months. 

As a top manager, I was bullied and dismissed, and much more. 

Life-changing challenges and changes that I had to overcome made me stronger and helped me grow.

I talk about self-leadership, strengthening your own resilience, that of your employees and how leadership can succeed in difficult times.

I  encourage people!


With my mental strength - personally and as a leader, I have always managed to get up, wipe the dust off my coat, and move on with confidence. How do I do that? I provide answers to this in my coaching sessions, talks, and workshops because...


 Leadership is a marathon, not a sprint!
