Why diversity matters
Diversity in the workplace should not only be a big topic for companies due to increased innovation, creativity and financial performance. The most important reason is because it reflects the values of the most essential asset of every organization: its people. Diversity means not only gender balance; this is only the tip of the iceberg. Diversity means embracing the difference of human beings with the aim for authenticity, respect and empathy – values that create true meaning and purpose for the individual specifically and organization in general. That is why diversity should be important to every organization but many believe that they do enough or do not need it…
Is your company REALLY diversity-focused?
Does your team represent your customer base in regards to diversity?
Do you have a work environment of authenticity, trust and respect?
Are there policies in place that describe, prohibit and address discrimination?
Does your company have a trusted person for diversity matters?
Do you market to a diverse customer base?
Is there a great diversity of applicants to your job postings?
Does your sales personnel address the individual needs of their diverse clients?
Let`s work together!
Find out how your organization can live and communicate diversity!
Whether you want to recruit more diverse applicants, train your sales personal for customer-specific communication or market your products to a diverse customer base I help you to address your specific diversity needs.

“Monika’s coaching showed me how to use my true passions and skills for my career and thus integrate a job into a true part of my life. The coaching was super efficient and absolutely out of the box and individualized to my personal needs. I changed my job while the coaching was still taking place. Monika is an exceptionally inspiring and free personality for whom boundaries do not exist and anything is possible. Above all, she is very emphatic and recognizes the abilities of others. She is hard working, very experienced, passionate, honest and a true role model.”
“Monika is an enthusiastic, energetic speaker whose accounts and experiences bring relevant lessons to the corporate environment. She has spoken at two of our Ciena EMEA events now, specifically on partnering, collaboration and the value of teamwork to achieve the improbable. She is very good to work with in developing content and delivery for the presentations, attentive to addressing the objectives of the speaking assignment. Her enthusiasm is infectious and passion for achieving is inspirational, highly recommended as a speaker for events and cycling activities.”
“I am so glad we invited Monika to do a workshop for our leasing teams. Her presentation and energy was fabulous! She motivated, encouraged and assisted our teams in building their confidence to achieve their goals. She provided them with the invaluable tools to overcome failures. In our industry, we deal with people from all walks of life – she was able to relate her workshop to our industry and target the areas that would be most beneficial in their professional and personal lives. I would highly recommend Monika’s workshop!”
“At a time in life when not much is certain, Monika has helped me to choose a path that will help me to continue my passion for knowledge while focusing on my personal happiness after college. With her insight and experiences, she has inspired me to achieve my goals and make that leap that I was previously too scared to do. She is quite enthusiastic and encouraging. I highly recommend meeting with Monika if you are in need of some motivation and expertise!”
“The group had a discussion on your adventurous mindset presentation and the feedback was really positive. They found the session to be thought-provoking and we had further discussions on how this could be implemented within their businesses.”
“Thank you very much Monika fur such and interesting and inspiring seminar on how to be best you can be. I enjoyed very much!! I wish you the best for your future. Stay healthy, be safe”
