Embracing a New Journey: Joining the Remarkable Team at Leadership Choices 💼🚀Making a positive impact on the Future of Leadership (optional)

By Karla Schlaepfer

How I’m upgrading my dedication to delivering top-notch training programs and coaching services to my valued clients 🧠💡

Change is the essence of growth, and I am delighted to share my exciting new journey with all of you. 🌱 Recently, I qualified to become part of the group of highly qualified coaches, trainers, and business experts at Leadership Choices. 🎉

This marks a new milestone in my career as a design professional and executive coach, and I am thrilled to embark on this path of personal and professional development. 💼🚀

Embracing the Opportunity

To be honest, joining Leadership Choices feels like a natural fit, aligning with my passion for fostering positive cultural change and empowering individuals to reach their full potential. Being part of an established association (since 2008) is an honor, and I am eager to collaborate with like-minded professionals (150 accredited coaches in Germany, and worldwide) who are dedicated to making a meaningful impact. 👥🤝 In addition, many of us are thought leaders in our own right, contributing to people's evolution as published authors. 📚

A Holistic Approach to Growth

I’m not going to write a commercial plug 😊, but … I am going to give you a teaser with a few highlights. Leadership Choices (LC) has been working with companies such as Porsche, SAP, or Coca-Cola in transformational change. 🚀 LC focuses on tailor-made leadership programs, developing high-performance teams, and promoting people skills. 🏆👩‍💼 The offerings include growing with feedback and feedforward, conflict management, growth mindset, and co-creating team purpose; and these are just a glimpse of the many topics available.

Leadership Choices is probably Germany’s best one-stop shop for all things concerning “Resilience”. LC co-CEO Karsten Drath is a renowned resilience expert with many publications on this subject. 🇩🇪💪 He and the team created FIRE credential training for building this core strength and the brand new, “Digital Resilience Journey" - a learning package for guided self-reflection, using videos and worksheets, and peer coaching. 📈🌟

I’m delighted to add to the LC repertoire my own line-up of brain-friendly executive coaching tools, creativity and innovation training, and of course, my beloved agile Design Thinking workshops. 💡🎨

Unusual and exciting, Leadership Choices encourages learning exchange among the trainers and coaches with a wide scope of communities. On these platforms, learning “nuggets,” training techniques, and project developments are openly shared, and new formats are developed.

A Bigger Picture

LC offers a Coaching Master Program that is Coaching Education for Managers! This program is ICF-accredited for Leadership, Transformation, and Resilience. 🌟👩‍💼

Better Leadership – Better Organizations – Better World

LC walks the talk! This is why Leadership Choices has created a community specifically focused on supporting non-profit organizations that align their activities with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 🌍In this BetterWorld Community, LC develops partnerships with foundations and NGOs to become a trusted partner supporting organizations in the social, environmental, or educational sectors with professional coaching, leadership workshops, and resilience development.

Currently, there is an amazing fundraising tour, “Around the World by Bike” to raise money for purpose-driven NGOs to provide free access to high-quality coaching.🚴🏻‍♂️


I am filled with enthusiasm as I embark on this new journey. The opportunity to be part of this remarkable community of highly qualified coaches and trainers is empowering! As I take this step forward, I am committed to nurturing growth, happiness, and positive change in the lives of the leaders I have the privilege to work with. Here's to embracing new beginnings and making a difference together! 🎉🤗
