Meet Claudia Hesse

Personal Leadership Expert, Coach & Trainer for Executives
or in other words, Professional Listener, Mirror & Guide

Why I do what I do

I'm here to transform the global understanding of leadership - and to stop the secret "I'm not enough"-trend in business.

I have seen so many leadership courses and programs fail and met so many unhappy, frustrated, stressed or even fearful leaders that I decided that this had to change.  I looked at processes, organisational setups, agile name it. 

Until I realized that a crucial part was utterly neglected: PERSONAL LEADERSHIP = LEADING YOURSELF. THE foundation for leading others. No wonder hardly anything was working sustainably!

I'm here to change that. I want  to see thousands of deeply content, human, and successful leaders - and as a leader and mother I made it my mission to help other women to get to the place of creating a rock-solid foundation for their success: Your life. Your career. Your rules. 

Smooth Journey?

Not at all. I did not always succeed and dealt with huge setbacks privately as well as professionally. This is where I learned the most.

I had great successes too: I built a story-book career from assistant to board member and created a successful startup in the IT-publishing area. My biggest successes: I raised my two children as a single mum and got aligned with who I really am.

And even now I sometimes hit bumps while supporting two young adults to find their own paths and building up the most exciting business of all I could experience so far.

I'm happy to accompany you on part of your exclusive journey.

I live on the countryside outside of Munich with a horse and a pug, my son & a horse. I love to sing, read, work in the garden and do yoga...normally not at the same time though ;-)

The Essence of The Journey Resulting in A Process and Framework - PLeX 5.0


l have combined all the knowledge, experience, scars and joy that I have accumulated after almost 30 years in the exciting IT industry as a corporate leader,  founder of two businesses and student of various courses and certifications while raising two kids on my own with a sprinkle of wisdom and magic and lots of un-learning.

I've tested and experimented a lot. Found out what worked and what did not.

The essence of that I poured into a framework of Personal Leadership and  in my signature program: PLeX 5.0 with CoreConnection at the heart of it.

I had the luxury of living in many different places and worked with fascinating and awesome people from all over the world - hence I teach not just in my mother tongue (German), but even more so  in English (which has become my primary language by now).


Who Does Claudia Work With? 

INDIVIDUAL HIGH-ACHIEVING WOMEN: I've been working with executives and leaders all across the world - USA, South America, Australia and Europe. 

So far I have mainly focused on leaders in the IT, Biotech and NGO space and could acquire an excellent knowledge of these business areas. 

According to my clients I have the unique talent to create a safe space for my clients which allows them to fully open up - and  transformation and change often happen instantly and spontaneously.

TEAMS: The whole framework and parts of it (i.e. vision building and communication) are easily applicable to teams to achieve better collaboration, more productivity and simply better results. My communication workshops tend to shift teams immediately through unique techniques and insights from PLeX 5 - beautiful to watch!


How does it work? 

Our world has changed a lot since the beginning of 2020 - the way of how I work not really. Since years, I've been connecting with my 1:1 clients online  and while I was sceptical at the beginning if all the experiences and exercises would work I was positively surprised to see they did and they work perfectly well with great results.

The PLeX process will always be accompanied by online resources which support the journey. 

Workshops are possible via Zoom as well with up to 20 participants.

When the COVID situation allows, I'm more than happy to support you in person - individually or your team. Let's talk and discuss your requirements. Even in teams leadership starts with everybody individually -  PLeX 5.0 for teams is the perfect solution to accelerate and enhance collaboration to a level never seen before. 


"Lead with love and care and you'll succeed. 
Lead with fear, and you'll fail."
