Key coaching areas
HAPPINESS & RESILIENCE
Who you work with
Stef is a passionate and experienced people leader and personal growth enthusiast, bringing clarity, structure and a pull towards execution into your life. With a diploma in psychology, a master in system thinking and a doctorate in aviation engineering, she brings a hilarious bandwidth of scientific and business experiences that has made the jaws of one or another corporate C-level drop instantly – especially in her last role as venture builder at the Boston Consulting Group Digital Ventures.
Being a fearless explorer of unknown territories, Stef has seen the world through many lenses – be it as multi-style yoga teacher, meditation teacher, reiki practitioner, bee-keeper, quail owner, interior designer, gallery manager, and many more. Not to forget her licence to drive horse carriages in public traffic. Some might call her crazy, she calls herself "fearless master explorer with a proven track record", always ready to dive into the next unknown territory.
What you get
For the last 6 years, Stef has founded ventures for the biggest corporates in the world at BCG Digital Ventures. Equipped with her MBTI INTJ "mastermind" personality, Stef can join the dots fast, gets to results even faster, while being a vehement warrior for work-life-sleep balance. Being an introvert and designer herself, her heart beats loud for venturing, the creative industries and the quieter fellows, but, having worked across so many industries and roles, she is happy to support all curious souls with a hunger to evolve and go beyond.
Stef's coaching style is inspired by the works of ancient stoic philosophers, buddism, cognitive science, by modern "philosophers" such as Simon Sinek and Gary Vaynerchuck and contemporary psychological work on happiness, performance, mental regulation and resilience as taught by Daniel Kahnemann, Robert Emmons, and Mirriam Pries. Stef is member of the self-healing circle by holistic psychologist Dr. Nicole LePera (Los Angeles, USA).

Thank you for the short, but great time we had together at heycar. You were certainly one of the most important drivers for success. No matter what you are going to do specifically, everyone who has you on your team can consider themselves lucky. Both professionally and personally.
