What sets Dr Veronika Peters
Coaching Services apart
For more than two and a half decades I have helped leaders and organisations pioneer change and experience growth. I have worked with teams, executives, artists, boards, committees, philanthropists and world-changers to facilitate profound breakthrough.
The stories we tell ourselves direct our lives and shape our world. My integrative coaching approach draws from multiple disciplines. I draw from principles of leadership, management, neuroscience, theology, the arts. I draw from experience across the sectors, across the cultures. I am trained in Business and Workplace Coaching and Integrative Development (Gateway to Narrative Coaching).
I work with leaders in their season of success as well as with leaders as they navigate their season out of grief and into greater purpose.
People I work with value:
Integrity & Purpose
Visionary & Strategic Leadership
Courage & Strength
Creativity & Excellence
Kindness & Generosity
Energy & Passion
"Veronika is great to work with and always goes the extra mile. She genuinely cares and is the most and encouraging person! She believed in me and got me. She helped me see new perspectives when I felt stuck - I love my new job and living my purpose."
"Working with Veronika fast tracked me in my leadership and career. Each session helped me gain more confidence and generated the momentum I needed to transition well."
"Thank you for working with me when I faced some leadership challenges and needed to make some tough calls. So worth it!"
Born & raised in Vienna, Austria I grew up in a family who taught me that leadership means serving people and that any blessing in life comes with responsibility. I studied business, wrote my Master Thesis on Management of Expatriates in Canada, and my Doctorate on Corporate Social Responsibility and the Strategic role of Cross Sector Partnerships in Australia. My research, rolled out by the Chamber of Commerce, pioneered change around corporate citizenship and provided strategic directions to many corporates in Australia.
As an executive and consultant to executives I honed my skills in strategy, leading organisational change and cross sector partnerships. For two years I worked alleviating poverty with UNDP in Africa, where I also designed and led a country wide cross sector campaign against Female Genital Mutilation.
Other accomplishments include repositioning a membership organisation, leading the turn around of large teams, raising substantive financial support through establishing significant partnerships for organisations such as The Salvation Army, Mission Australia, Opportunity International Australia.
As Chief Philanthropy Officer and Development Director I have worked with many of the leading philanthropists and change agents in the country and have been a passionate advocate for social justice.
As Writer and Actress I gained great understanding in what drives and motivates people to pursue their goals and what works against them. As Theatre Director I have learnt to cast a vision, to unlock creative potential and direct a room of players and creatives towards a shared goal. As a writer, actress, director, and visual artist, I believe in the power of the arts to touch humanity at a deep level.
I have known the blessings of success, but have also gone through seasons of challenge, loss and grief, of transitions which have refined my character, search for meaning and faith, and have given me spiritual insights into the anatomy of pain and purpose and what it takes to rise up, forgive, harness honest reflection for greater wisdom, vulnerability for greater resilience and strength.
It would be my privilege to work with you.
