I am a career and leadership coach, cycling record holder, TEDx speaker and author. I coach seasoned professionals on identifying and pursuing a fulfilling and meaningful professional life and consult leaders on creating an inspiring and motivating work environment.
With a focus on women, I work with various female groups including the “Women Back to Business” program at the University of St Gallen, WeAdvance, Women in Mining and the Women’s network of Caterpillar. I give workshops around the world and have spoken at TEDx, Rotary Club, Morgan Stanley, Vistage, Women Coaches Symposium, Eurobike and more.
Originally from Germany, I have lived in the USA, Australia, Spain and now Switzerland. A graduate from University of Minnesota and Georgetown University, I have previously worked for the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and IBM.
I am the first woman cycling the 3000km Vuelta a España on the same day as the male professionals, just hours beforehand. 80% of the people believed it was impossible.
I use this experience having gone for a seemingly impossible goal to help others to set, pursue and achieve big goals through authenticity, resilience, team building and leadership skills.

Sign up to Monika`s email list about future workshops, talks and coaching on career, goals and leadership.
“We had the good fortune of bringing Monika Sattler to our school and thanks to her talk explaining her RAD philosophy she helped our sport students to find out how to achieve their goals not only for the year but also for their future lives. I believe that the reason she has such an impact on all that she presents to is that she is clearly genuine and motivating in every regard.
It is with only the highest regards that I would recommend Monika for any speaking engagement, for the corporate world, sport or personal.”
“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.”
