I am Torsten Schuster, an organizational and leadership development expert with over 15 years of experience in global corporations guiding executives to excel in their roles. My passion is to empower leaders to shine by serving as their ‘guide on the side’. With certifications from the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and Co-Active Training Institute (CTI), I offer a rigorously professional yet profoundly human coaching approach grounded in the latest leadership research.

As your Growth Partner, I create psychologically safe conditions for you to explore your authentic aspirations and innate strengths. By integrating somatic embodiment, neuroscience, and my expertise in organizational dynamics, I facilitate holistic breakthroughs that unlock your distinct gifts. Whether you are navigating complex executive challenges, charting an emerging leadership course, or embarking on a bold entrepreneurial journey, I co-create customized strategies rooted in self-awareness and fearless dreaming.

My commitment to your leadership growth is based on my own journey of discovery about the creativity within every leader. I believe each leader has a unique essence ready to sprout into greatness. As your Growth Partner, I bring the care and nutrients for your seed to unleash into its full potential. Our work together scripts your next leadership chapter, skillfully aligning purpose, results and personal fulfillment.

Join me on a collaborative journey where transformation meets intentionality, consciously stepping into your very own leadership narrative.

The International Coaching Federation (ICF) defines coaching as a ‘thought-provoking and creative process that inspires clients to maximize their personal and professional potential.’ For those new to coaching, this definition may sound abstract. The best way to getting a sense of the transformative power of coaching is to experience it firsthand. Coaching is a non-judgmental, personalized journey where you define your aspirations, and I guide you towards achieving them. There are no prescribed outcomes; we co-create a path that aligns with your unique goals and desired growth.

Our journey begins with a contracting session, where we explore your goals, wishes, and align on our collaborative partnership. Based on my coaching offerings of Self-awareness, Identity, and Transformation, we craft an individualized roadmap spanning multiple coaching sessions, typically 60 minutes each. Throughout our engagement, we’ll revisit and refine the roadmap as needed, ensuring it continues to serve your evolving growth needs. Fundamentally, you decide what best supports your development.

My coaching is primarily conducted virtually via online meeting platforms. Research shows that virtual coaching fosters a sense of comfort and intimacy by allowing you to connect from your preferred location, while minimizing environmental distractions and maintaining a focused presence. However, if you reside near Munich, Germany, I’m open to in-person coaching sessions.

Through my education and professional career, I have cultivated a distinct focus on leaders, leadership talents, and entrepreneurs in the high-tech industry. If you align with these dimensions, let’s explore how I can support your growth. If not, my unique coaching approach may still be the catalyst you need to unlock your next growth opportunity. I’m happy to offer a trial coaching experience to assess our fit. You can also learn more about me and my coaching philosophy on my Leadership Coaching page.

The relationship between coach and coachee is the prime success factor for a transformative coaching experience. The best way to gauge the chemistry between us is to schedule an introductory meeting or a trial coaching session. You may also review references from coachees I’ve had the privilege of supporting on their incredible growth journeys. My commitment is to create a safe space where you can authentically explore and unleash your full potential.

Each coaching engagement is tailored to the client’s specific needs and circumstances, whether they are a corporate or private client. Let’s connect to define your customized coaching agenda and roadmap, allowing me to provide you a personalized offer that aligns with your goals.
