Marika combines strategic thinking and business awareness with spiritual and emotional intelligence. She brings her solid business experience as a lauded corporate leader in the financial markets, where she was recognised as one of the industry’s most successful equity sales professionals. Making it to the 7-figure annual compensation at the age of 31 – the year she gave birth to her son – by the age of 33, Marika was appointed as one of the youngest female sales managers with 40 people across Europe under her supervision. Her success led her to realise what was missing from her own career and the corporate world: Conscious Leadership.
Marika’s particular path toward conscious leadership took her out of the corporate world and on a worldwide adventure where she trained in integral coaching, yoga, mindfulness, bioenergetic healing, and hypnotherapy. Marika also developed an interest in indigenous healing practices and particularly the influence of consciousness and the mind on the process of healing. Instead of leaving the business world forever, this experience inspired her to build a system of development that would transcend the leadership status quo and align businesses with a positive impact.
She founded ConsciousLeadership.org with the vision that Conscious Leadership is the way to access market leadership in the uncertain and complex world of today. ConsciousLeadership.org offers something new: a way of aligning self-leadership, market leadership and systems transformation.
Marika is also a sounding board to early-stage start-ups through her business angel activities and a successful entrepreneur; setting up from scratch her own coaching and consulting business, taking it from zero to multiple 6-figures in less than 3 years.
