Diplomatic. Competent. Successful.

Mastering social and personal leadership


Mastering social and personal leadership

I work with leaders and entrepreneurs of today and tomorrow. It is my objective to provide people with new perspectives, confidence, and orientation within their professional and career paths. I show them tried-and-tested ways how to thrive together within an organization and their personal environments and how treating oneself mindfully will lead to a successful and more relaxed life. In addition to the classic counseling approach, I work with tools and methods from diplomacy and nature psychology.


Our basic human needs, aspirations, and behaviors have not changed despite digitization. That is why we need familiar human values and behaviors to compensate for the ongoing change in our working and living environment. The great connections between people and nature as well as the discovery of new perspectives on what is apparently familiar has always moved and inspired me. How the connection to nature can help us to master self-management and the management of our everyday life is a driver of my actions. This is what I write about.

Clients testimonials

„Great moderation! Gerlinde Manz-Christ has brought out incredibly much from the conversation with clever “innocent” questions. She is quick in combining points and spontaneously and creatively approaches new situations. I have told more than I originally intended. But it was absolutely ok.“

Rebecca Guntern, Head Cluster Europe, Sandoz Pharmaceuticals AG

„Gerlinde Manz is an exciting and entertaining speaker. You would like to listen to her for hours. She has experienced a lot in her career as a diplomat and on her travels. She shared her experiences and adventures with our audience at Mobiliar Akzente in Bern, Zurich and St. Gallen. Thank you, Gerlinde, for your great performance and the uncomplicated cooperation!”

Karin Baltisberger, Head Corporate Communications, Mobiliar Versicherungen, Switzerland

„I, personally, as well as the other members of the Government have highly appreciated Dr. Manz-Christ as an absolutely discreet and winning personality with high integrity.

Dr. Klaus Tschütscher, Former Prime Minister, Principality of Liechtenstein

„She encouraged, admonished, and convinced us, all at the same time … with highly interesting content and with her personality, Gerlinde Manz-Christ was a real highlight that afternoon.“

Dr. Arno Weber, Directorate, Raiffeisen Association of Tyrol

„Thank you for such a fabulous class last week. It was an absolute pleasure to learn from someone who shares my heart for communications and public affairs/diplomacy and has such a wealth of experience. It sparked excitement in me and reminded me of why I have chosen this career path. I sincerely hope this won’t be the last time we cross paths. I’d welcome the opportunity to learn from you again in future.“

Taylor Christine Luby, PR company, Portland, OR

„Dr. Gerlinde-Manz accompanied us again this year at one of our most important customer events. As a presenter at four events of our event series “The Footprint of Inspiring Women”, she guided the events charmingly and eloquently as a presenter. Ms. Manz-Christ is characterized by an exceptionally high level of empathy with the various speakers and the audience. She has great merit for the good success of the events and for the many positive feedbacks from our guests.“
