Welcome! This Space is for You. Expatriates, Global Business Executives, Entrepreneurs, International Teams. 


STRATEGYSHERPAS help you navigate disruptive times of change and transition in your life and business – from sorting through the situation to you already living the new reality – via personal and organisational strategies.

Sherpas are highly regarded mountaineers, serving as guides to scale the world’s highest peaks. The term Sherpa is also a synonym for a highly valued guide in the business terrain.


Note: To be of service to you, if you need immediate time-sensitive support in major life or business situations, there is a strictly confidential direct line we offer in case of emergency or disruptive events. 





The results we experience are the mix of decisions and actions we take. We show you how to use the ancient wisdom of FIRST PRINCIPLES to stay ahead of the game.

The Vision Keeper

The Vision Keeper

  • The Vision Keeper.: Principle

“There is a ton of work to do. If you want to walk a thousand miles and you take the first step, it looks like a long way. And it is really helpful if someone is there saying “We are one step closer.” The goal definitely exists. In a thousand and one, little and sometimes larger, ways the vision needs to be reiterated. I do that a lot.” Steve Jobs

THE FIRST PRINCIPLE. Take a complex idea and reiterate it – in a way that others can understand and continue. 

ACT. You are the Vision Keeper. Reiterate your vision with the team. 

“If you go back a few hundred years, what we take for granted today would seem like magic – being able to talk to people over long distances, to transmit images, flying, accessing vast amounts of data like an oracle. These are all things that would have been considered magic a few hundred years ago.” – Elon Musk

Zoom Out

Zoom Out

  • ZOOM OUT: Principle

THE FIRST PRINCIPLE. ZOOM OUT. Remain hypervigilant to sense changing conditions and respond effectively.

ZOOM OUT:  Be Hypervigilant. 
- Sense a change in conditions,
- Access the time frame,
- Assess with rigor: Do the new conditions call for change of plans? If, so how?

ASK. How much time before the risk profile changes?

Zoom In

Zoom In

  • ZOOM IN: Principle

THE FIRST PRINCIPLE. ZOOM IN: Take action. Have the passion for a cause larger than yourself, infused with the will to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

ZOOM IN:  Move boldly into supreme execution

ASK. How can we make this happen?


  • “If something is important enough, even if the odds are against you, you should still do it.” – Elon Musk, 2017
  • “After successful start – because of the lack of funding, the global project was close to failure. The Board had decided to stop the construction, and already started to tear down the existing parts. But the entrepreneur, against the decision of the Board, decided to give up his earnings and to find funding to continue the construction. Each evening, he asked unknown people for money (crowdsourced) to pay for the vision of an extraordinary spiritual place that will be finished in 100+ years. Many people believed he had gone crazy, but he had the support of ordinary people and the brightest personalities.” The rest is history. The Sagrada Familia, Gaudí Story, 1916.

Move Like A Tiger

Move Like A Tiger

  • Move Like A Tiger: First Principle


A tiger’s whole body is expressive. When hunting for a certain aim. 

Everything they do. Is towards the aim. A decision is measured by the fact that you have taken a new action. If there is no action, you have not truly decided.

Use the ground you are given.

ASK. What move will you make towards the aim?

Transition Management in Digitalization

“The challenge during times of life’s and business tsunamis is that we have too many choices, too much on our plate, and intense emotions bubbling up at night.”


It’s TIME to Finally Create the Legacy & Success You Deserve…All While Staying True to Your Values!


Do you ever feel you’re in the midst of a major life transition, moving into prime time in your life, and you’re ready to play BIG?


Learn immersive power practices to stay in power center, no matter what happens around you! 

What You Get: We deliver absolute clarity and confidence in what your unique power is, what your unique legacy is and how you manifest it into reality step-by-step. We furthermore bring absolute clarity and release of blocks that stand in your way.

Charge Mentale – How To Manage Transition And The Space In-Between

The pace of change in this very moment in time is slower than it will be for the rest of your life! Understand that and how to navigate these transformational times.

We often shy away from any kind of transformation. Paradoxically, this is the time when you are most effective creating the change you like to see, – the first months as executive in the new position, when the company grows into a new phase, when conflicts in teams emerge, post-merger and more.


I skate to where the puck is going to be, not where it has been.
