My name is Maria Griselda Mueller and I am an expat too!
I know what it feels like to be in a foreign country, with no family around. I have learned to live and work in a new culture with a new language many times.
I started my career in the IT arena, travelled around the world working as a certified SAP Business Intelligence Consultant. This also meant I lived as an expat in the USA, UK, Portugal, South Korea, Germany and Switzerland. I worked for big corporate companies like: SAP and Electronic Data Systems. My job included a lot of communication, analysis, solution design, presentations and trainings. Skills I still believe have contributed to my work as a coach and trainer today.
In this phase of my life, I met my husband. Later on we got our two children who have been growing up in a multicultural and multilingual environment. In each moving from one place to the next one, I have supported my family to start all over again, adapting ourselves to the new culture, the new language and definitely making a new life. I am thankful for the experiences lived everywhere and for the friendships we left behind. Even though it has been challenging at the beginning of every moving, we have found always our way to grow and unfold.
From all the countries where I have had to move to, Switzerland was a special one for me. It was this last move to Switzerland that triggered my desire to learn and explore more about personal transformation. I was driven by the desire to support others who are in the same situation I have been before. I know exactly the ups and downs that comes with being an expat. I got coaching my first year living in Switzerland in order to discover my way to develop and be happy here. I believe this coaching is what really inspired me and helped me to find my path and my connection to coach other expats.
I am glad I got the courage I needed to get up and be coached. More importantly, I used my vision, learnings and my courage to launch my consulting business for expats.
Are you ready to take action, to let your feelings talk, to think beyond of what you can see, feel and know? Register for the coaching workshop to find your way and give you the confidence to create your own opportunities.
I am looking forward to hearing from you
