Petra has had both corporate and entrepreneurial careers, with more than two decades experience in fashion, costume and textile design, creating interior spaces, furniture and residential architecture. Petra developed a consulting firm in 2003, for companies seeking expert advise in international sales, marketing and branding. Her niche are design oriented firms with products for the interior, including floor- and wall finishes, kitchen-and bathroom cabinetry, residential- and office furniture and lighting. Since 2010, she is LEED certified and has actively promoted products resulting from sustainable manufacturing methods. Petra has lived and worked in Germany, USA, Central America and Asia, collaborating closely with people from diverse cultures and backgrounds. Through these enriching relationships it became clear to her that whoever we are, most of us struggle with the same processes and require help in achieving transformational goals. It was realizing this universal need that inspired her to begin her coaching practice.
A passionate quantum thinker, Petra takes an ontological approach to coaching that encompasses the entire being of the client and involves looking at the deepest level of his/her identity, discovery of meaning in their respective actions, belief in and alignment with something greater than ego or personality. Her work is a guidance-from-within approach that involves commitment to act skillfully in the present moment and making intentions for future actions.
She has been partnering with Individuals and organizations to create real breakthroughs in sales, leadership and corporate culture through Energy Leadership Development and Training.
In 2017, Petra partnered with Thirty Thousand Feet, a people performance and analytics consultancy, as Senior Consultant for culture development, leadership training and executive coaching.
Petra is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC), Accredited Certified Coach (ACC), Energy Leadership Index™ Master Practitioner (ELI-MP) and Member ICF and IoC.
