Gesa is an amazing coach. Her calm and supportive demeanor cuts through the buzz in my head, and she helps me think clearly about myself and my career. She is undoubtedly a force multiplier in my career. Gesa is insightful and brilliant and helps to make all the hard work that much easier.

Gesa served as my HR partner in building up my Senior Leadership team. She has been instrumental in the successful workshop delivery by designing a fitting program and content and running the high-performance team workshops as a facilitator. Gesa is excellent to work with and very strong in running workshops.
I have had a life-changing experience working with Gesa. She creates a safe and open space to express the fears and challenges I am facing. She shows patience while I express my struggles and concerns. She helps me organize and reflect on what I am sharing and brings it home by asking questions that help me see my best path forward. I really appreciate her Coaching technique and finesse.
I experienced Gesa as a highly engaging and empathic facilitator during a change workshop. The session with her was highly-practical, and we had an immediate opportunity to practice. She allowed us to discuss relevant topics and questions as a team- it was an absolute pleasure to work with her.
I had the pleasure of working with Gesa for two years as we served in the Global Women’s Network leadership team. She led workshops and gave presentations on the topic of health and a positive mindset. She was a role model for professional women- she gave the message to strive to excel in their business roles and look for excellence in mind/body balance. She challenged others to push their comfort zones and quiet their inner critic. Through Gesa, we learned that we are capable of so much more than we imagine ourselves.

She is a true professional who goes the extra mile to serve the customer.
