Claudia Gehlen


Claudia’s coaching style is outcome-driven and energizing, based on insightful questioning and non-judgmental communication that results in clarity, focus and meaningful change. Straight forward, supportive yet challenging, she empowers leaders and their teams to transform good intentions into positive actions with greater impact.


Drawing on 35+ years of experience in Europe and Asia, Claudia has a proven track record as a multicultural leader having previously worked for companies such as Siemens Belgium in her business career. In Singapore, where she currently lives, she co-authored a wide range of business studies at INSEAD and lectured at the National University of Singapore, before discovering her passion for coaching more than a decade ago. Having lived in China for 9 years, Claudia worked with Western and Chinese leaders to navigate the business complexities in a challenging context across industries.

As an enabler of change, Claudia creates a safe, open and fun environment for exploration and implementation. She uses a holistic approach that combines ICF competencies with the latest neuroscientific findings and cross-cultural wisdom. By deeply listening and challenging her clients’ thinking patterns, she inspires them to turn new insights into powerful habits that enhance their leadership impact, communication effectiveness and ultimately business results.

A true cultural nomad, Claudia strongly believes in the freedom of choice. Her coaching helps leaders develop new perspectives, opening up more choices and leading to better decisions.

Claudia is fluent in German, English, French, Dutch and speaks conversational Mandarin and Spanish.
