I am really proud of what people are saying about my work and me:

Das Coaching mit Karla war eine wirkliche Bereicherung für meine persönliche Entwicklung. Dank ihrer hervorragenden Eigenschaften, Erfahrungen und Fähigkeiten als Coach ist es ihr gelungen, in unseren Sessions die Themen und Fragestellungen immer wieder in den Fokus zu rücken, starke Fragen zu platzieren, die nachwirken und die gemeinsame Reise als auch meine übergeordneten Ziele im Blick zu behalten.

Anne Klinnert-Matuszewski, Senior Abteilungsleiterin

I especially liked the approach that you use with your creative working methods to try to involve the quiet people in a group more and not just the ‘market barkers’. This is very important in teamwork and is often neglected in everyday office life.

Dr. Michael Faatz, LL.M., legal counsel

Today I want to share my appreciation for my coach Karla Schlaepfer and say thank you for all your support and thought-provoking questions, each coaching session with you is a true gift and inspiration. I am grateful to my coach for encouraging me to reflect on a deeper level and for supporting me in developing my strengths and so show up as my most authentic self. Thank you!

Sophie Arbab-Zadeh

Karla has been an invaluable resource in helping me navigate a new job. From our very first session, I knew that I had found someone who truly understood the complexities of my role and could provide me with the guidance and support I needed to succeed.

Teresa Chandler, Senior HR Professional

In the last six months I have achieved a lot with Karla in terms of my own personal development. I am very impressed by Karla's way of coaching and can recommend her to others one hundred percent. I would like to take this opportunity to thank her again for the great cooperation and support.


I finally came around to listening to your podcast and loved the ‘story-telling approach‘ – it was very captivating, well articulated, and insightful! I loved hearing about your professional stations and inspirations and was delighted about your passion for art/art history background (I have always been very interested in that field!) and how that angle can be incorporated in coaching (‘additional level of learning + trigger for shift in perspective and tease out new thinking for those who want to’). I also found very interesting and timely the information you provided on VR and how you integrate it into your coaching and the qualities it offers.


Instead of reading about it in articles, it is much more enlightening To experience the metaverse. Karla guided us through this digital universe and we felt safe and well-prepared. Her introduction and the support during the session was truly helpful.

Karla ist ein wirklich toller Coach. Sie geht sehr individuell auf die Situation ein und liefert keine vorgefertigten Standardantworten. Vielmehr versetzt sie dich durch sehr geschickte Fragestellungen in die Lage, DEINE eigene Lösung zu finden. Für mich war die Zusammenarbeit mit ihr sehr wertvoll!

Thomas Seil, Bereichsleiter Komposit, Öffentliche Versicherung

Eine wahnsinnig intensive erste Session, in der mir meine Coach Karla Schlaepfer sehr relevante Fragen gestellt hat. Bin ganz beeindruckt!

Sehr hilfreiche Gespräche, toller Coach!

Wieder eine super Session. Ich bewundere meinen Coach, wie spontan sie mit dem, was ich sage, umgeht und sie die Session aufbaut.

Karla geht mit deinen Bedürfnissen mit, passt sich spontan an und stellt wirklich gute Fragen 😊

Eine emotionale und intensive session, bei der meine Coach Karla ganz achtsam mit mir umgegangen ist – ganz große klasse!

Ich bin beeindruckt, wie meine Coach spontan auf meine Themen eingeht.

KS showed a high degree of empathy and structure at the same time, and what distinguishes her is her goal-oriented creativity and her deep and wide skill set.

Professional, focused, personable … Karla supported me and used various coaching and moderation methods to solve a challenging task. Gladly again!

Working with Karla greatly impacted my career and helped me tremendously. Above and beyond that, she is an active and empathetic listener with an analytical approach. I immensely enjoyed working with Karla!

Lucija Kobal Nakic

Karla hat mich mit einem großen Methodenrepertoire begleitet. Besonders gefallen hat mir, dass sie mich animiert hat, mein Thema mit kreativen Mitteln zu lösen. Vielen Dank dafür.


Karla and I have teamed up during the last few months to explore the opportunities of virtual space for new forms of work and coaching for legal professionals. I highly appreciate her open mindset and creative intelligence. Mastering conventional hybrid work settings is already a challenge. However, Karla’s expertise even allows her to create a trusting atmosphere in virtual space.

During the Designsprint, Karla Schlaepfer introduced us to methods, some of which we have since used in other projects. We have also tried to reactivate the spirit from the workshop with Karla in other contexts and work, such as being open to new things on the one hand, but also proceeding in a focused and structured manner. We also built a small user database, which we have used a few times since then. For us, the Design Sprint with Karla was therefore inspiring and sustainable beyond the actual 5-day workshop.
