This program, led by me, Yvonne Baldle, will guide you through foundational layers and elevate your career by mastering unique visibility and communication techniques while maintaining a healthy balance.

With two decades of expertise in the realm of sportswear design and having worked for esteemed companies worldwide, ranging from Stockholm to Beijing, Amsterdam to Moscow and Kitzbuehel to Sao Paolo, I have successfully scaled the heights of my career from an assistant to a board member.

I made my fair share of mistakes, hit my head against many walls and nej sayers, achieved big and small successes, and raised the bar in design, sales, and brand identity.

In my professional journey, I have effectively guided various teams and individuals towards achieving excellence. However, I have also personally experienced that women still face significant challenges in the workplace, regardless of their location or the organization’s size. These include issues such as lack of visibility, not being taken seriously, lack of negotiation skills, and maintaining a healthy work-life balance.

I thoroughly enjoyed my thriving career, and despite occasional tight deadlines, I maintained a healthy work-life balance. However, when I became a mother to my lovely daughter, I took a step back to assess my aspirations and principles. What impact do I want to leave on her and all the women worldwide?

This led me to create a career leadership coaching program. Empower yourself with a personalized program designed exclusively for women. Gain the leadership skills you need to find your voice and increase your visibility. Our coaching will help you achieve the recognition, credibility, and confidence you deserve while maintaining a fulfilling work-life balance.

Believe in yourself and strive for greatness. With the right tools and knowledge, anything is possible. Live your dreams and have a fulfilling life.


My Philosophy

Harnessing Your Potential

If being successful means being happy, you need to know the answer to this question by your own standards. It requires effective goal-setting and planning. Writing down your goals increases your potential of achieving them significantly. If you don’t already, start writing them down and look at them as often as possible. This process motivates you to take some action every day to move toward accessing your potential and reaching your goals.

Marie-Laure D., Business OP Specialist, Berlin

I contacted Yvonne as I was looking for a career coach to help me reach an internal promotion. With Yvonne’s guidance and expertise, I developed my assertiveness and communication skills. Her “Reliable Competency Revealer” leadership program supported me in getting a clearer idea of what I have to offer and how to position myself.

Karen P., Marketing Manager, Copenhagen - Denmark

“Yvonne is a very professional and competent transformational coach. She asks critical questions that make you evaluate your thought process, and she makes suggestions on how to proceed forward with a better connection to what you want and how to achieve it.

My outlook has surely changed to a more positive mindset, and I have seen a progression in the way I handle certain situations.

I definitely recommend the transformational coaching services of Yvonne to anyone wanting to get back in touch with themselves and their goals.”

Lotta Z., Brand Partnership Manager, London - UK

Yvonne provided great career guidance to me, helping me find out what my strengths and weaknesses are, what I want and need from a job, and how to manage my work-life balance best. We worked on core values, confidence in a job setting, self-value, and how to achieve your career goals.

Yvonne always remained positive, enthusiastic, supportive, trusting, focused, goal-oriented, knowledgeable, observant, respectful, and patient, and is a great communicator.

I cannot speak highly enough of the combination of assessments that were provided, together they delivered amazing insights into me as a person, my goals and aspirations, and how to tackle my career best going forward.

Maude O., Category Management, Berlin - Germany

I contacted Yvonne to find guidance in moving forward in my career and secure an internal promotion. Throughout our coaching, she was a great support and, most importantly, helped me realign myself with my values and my aspirations.
I have been successfully promoted to a manager role following our year of coaching, and I’m now looking to continue my journey to a scope fit for my goals.

I have also appreciated her availability as she made sure to answer any questions or have time for quick ad hoc conversations. Her positive attitude was contagious throughout the coaching and made it even more enjoyable.

Veronica S., Operations Manager, Brussels - Belgium

I had coaching sessions with Yva while I was changing jobs and countries. Yva has a very practical, no-BS approach that helped me overcome the stress I felt and see clearly what I need to do to achieve my goals.  

After our sessions, I had an action plan in my head and followed it step by step.

Thank you Yva:)

Rohita T., Software Architect, Berlin - Germany

“I have been consulting with Yvonne for 3 months and can see the visible difference in my professional & personal life. I discussed my goals and issues in each session and Yva not only helped me to understand them correctly but also guided me on how I can tackle them.

She has given me the courage to take them head on and that changed my future outlook.

This is not just for personality development but for the overall transformation in our life, where we want someone to professionally guide and motivate us from time to time.

Yva is doing a great job in this field.”

Training & Work History

Solution Oriented Short Term Coaching


I took this coaching training to extend my range of coaching practice.

KZC is borrowed from Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT).
Difference to systemic coaching:
The solution-focused approach regards the system of the client and therapist (coach) as the relevant system. The analysis of the client system (“environmental exploration”) is largely dispensed with.


Access Bars Practitioner 


The Access Bars® is a set of 32 points on the head which, when lightly touched, stimulate positive change in the brain and defragment the electromagnetic components of stress, thoughts, and emotions.

This gentle, non-invasive technique works on releasing both physical and mental blocks stored within the body and helps to facilitate greater ease in all different areas of life.

Transformational coaching is a specific form of coaching that encourages critical reflection of how someone sees themselves, other people, their situation, and the world at large. It’s a coaching style that enables individuals and groups to transform themselves into their best versions. People are empowered to rethink and rewrite their reality. They’re able to eliminate self-defeating thought patterns and replace them with productive optimism.
