What Our Clients Say

Does this sound like you?

You feel stuck, overwhelmed and under-appreciated.

You got far too little time, too much to do, and miss the balance and energy in your life.

You feel and know it's time to do something about it and don't know where to start. 


I was there too..

... than a year ago I found the core of what I decided to teach.

The overall topic which I had identified became very clear pretty quickly. Particularly after having worked in and with corporates and all sorts of other businesses in the last 30 years.

For me it is all about Personal Leadership: the better I lead myself, the better my life will be, the better leader for others I will become (regardless if in business or in our private life).

For months while building up the framework for the program, I knew that the heart was still missing – the infamous missing puzzle piece (gosh, how often did I chase that one in my life).

Until I came across Light Up. A simple, yet incredibly profound, playful, quick and amazingly effective method to “cut through the crap” (sorry, but this is the best way of putting it) and to go right inside to get immediate results – even after the first session.

So I became an ACTIVATOR and made Light Up the core and starting point of my program (best foundation EVER).

And it creates amazing results….


Grab yourself a coffee (or even a glass of something nice) and hop on a FREE call to start planning YOUR journey


Breaking through limiting beliefs which are holding you back 

Harmful patterns identified and eliminated…those which can cause havoc in our life (and it's not what you think!)

Increased resilience: Learn hands-on-tools which equip you with managing basically every situation or challenge coming up in your life

Experiencing and finding your (super)powers and learn how to tap into them on demand and how to use them

Boosting your confidence & clarity for your life and career

Powerful, authentic communication and engagement with others

Overcoming procrastination

Creating aligned  goals and values

Developing courage to reach further and create a more meaningful impact

Creating an environment of trust

Boosting collaboration




…it works for everybody. Because in the core and its purest form this method is about humans. I’ve worked with students, stay-at-home mums….and business professionals (you don't have to be a CEO to be a leader!)

Light Up is relevant to all of us. Despite this, I have decided to focus on a specific group of people.

So, here we go….


Fact is, that I enjoy working with you most if…

You are already an experienced and creative business expert in your area (regardless if you’re working for someone or run your own business)

You’re a driven, smart and open-minded individual, who strives to be the best version of themselves, as you simply know that the future of leadership is human

You’re in your prime years (40 plus…sorry Millennials) and know that the best is still coming…in life and career

You’ve already gone far down your path and you’re ready to take full charge of and responsibility for HOW you want to live and work, but just need the right direction, tools & tweaks to do so


Fact is also...

 that even if you’re all of the above and even if things are “fine”, you might feel this niggle (worst case fear) that there is “more" OR it’s time for a change, for the next level, or a complete re-set.

Or you might find yourself in a major transition in your life….new business, different job, suddenly jobless, divorce or health crisis.

If any of the above resonates with you – read on


Since I’ve started working with Light Up I’ve met tons of people who could benefit from the experience. As I KNOW that it works. Always. Sometimes quicker, sometimes a bit slower. The results do come anyway.

And I see a lot of pain, fear, hopelessness, depression, anxiety and vulnerability around me – triggered by a diversity of situations, feelings or circumstances.

Not everybody I meet can afford to work with me – again, for a plethora of reasons. You might be this smart, driven single mum who wants to build up her business, but money is tight….or you’re the family father who lost his job and needs help quickly – or whatever YOUR individual situation is.

I’d love to have as many people as possible benefiting from Light Up - so I’ve decided to guide (at least) ONE PERSON/month through the FULL LIGHT UP PROGRAM completely FREE OF CHARGE (a package that is normally  $1490).

Just click and apply - be sure that I keep ALL information strictly confidential!




... to be able to do this work which is so rewarding for both, my clients and myself. At the same time it is quick, profound, playful  - and yes, game-changing.

If you believe that is for you, scroll down and read on for all your questions answered you might have – or book immediately the next available spot with me in this life-changing program.

PPS: If you’ve read this and you’re considering working with me, but would love to have this in German, go ahead. I’m offering the program in English and German – can’t wait to hear from you.



You simply want to get unstuck. Better relationships. Have constructive and enjoyable conversations instead of frustrating ones.

A career and life you really love and where you can be successful, happy and relaxed (oh, and know how to handle those damn messy situations that life tends to throw at us).

More courage and self confidence.

Or you move in circles and some situations in life seem to repeat themselves - in the job or in your private life. 

Or do you just know you're at a crossroad in your life or career and have lots of questions how to go from here?

Or have you been on the search for a long time...and still have not found the "missing piece"?

Out of stress into more ease and joy on a daily level, while still creating the success you wish for?

That's what you have in mind and don't quite know how to get there.

You finally want to have the key to greater clarity, stronger personal leadership, more authentic communication, deeper trust, greater motivation, confident decision-making, boosted self-esteem an greater resilience, courage and competence to reach further and make a lasting difference and getting to this next higher level in life.

You’re tired of worrying about the future or dealing with demons from the past and the same issues popping up in life, relationships and work again and again.

And you want solutions and shifts fast. And reliable so that you have a foundation to build upon for life. You want to live the life of your dreams – the one you really choose.

 You're in the right place then. As it's achievable. And much quicker and easier than you might think.

The good news: it always works. and delivers reliable results.


The Light Up Solution is being delivered in a 5-step program 1:1 in-person or online. The program is built on 2 (3 online) major intensive sessions – this is the spark, the ignition - which are delivered in a week and will result in major shifts and amazing results, often beyond the biggest expectations. There is a lot to digest and to discover, so the remaining time we’re going to use for follow-up, to turn things up and to make sure that the results stick.

I’m at your side through the whole process. Exclusively focused on you and your individual situation. You’ll always be supported and will know what to do next.

The core process is done in a week - with tangible results!

The 2  1-hour follow up sessions will stretch out  to 5 weeks in total - then you decide if and how we'll continue to work together.

Can't wait to hear from you!


It is deep, profound and probably the fastest and most effective inside-out approach in the world. 

So if you'd like to see results quickly, you're in the right place.

On top of that the tools we teach are practical, experiential, and are instantly implemented. Even after the very first session you will be armed with real-life tools that make sense to you, and that you can use to make a difference straight away.

Besides that it's the absolutely unique combination of different elements - with some parts being experiential (means you rather EXPERIENCE instead of just HEAR) - which create an immediate and profound effect.

At the same time it's playful  - I tend to laugh a lot with my clients during the sessions :-). The best way to learn...or sometimes unlearn.



  • Discovery Call with Claudia to get all your questions answered (if required)
  • 5-week experiential exclusive 1:1 coaching program
  • 3 intensive sessions (duration in total 6-8 hours) via skype/zoom or in 2 sessions in person (for those in Geneva)
  • 2 follow-up sessions via skype/zoom, 1 hour each
  • 5-step program where we go through a discovery journey,  identifying life-long patterns and limiting beliefs, experience and deliver hands-on tools to unleash your innate power(s) and will activate your inner knowledge.

You will have:

  • Life-time access to the material which is delivered on an online platform (worksheets, etc.)
  • Access to a community for ongoing support and exchange (private group)


Clients who went through the process achieved outstanding results in a lot of areas. In essence this is what you can expect:

  • Live and work with more ease and joy - congruent with who you really are!
  • Better relationships and deeper connections  - on all levels. With yourself, with your loved ones, with colleagues and friends.
  • Understand how to move faster through blocks and behaviours that may have held you back - basically understanding your patterns and changing them to those helping you progress in life
  • Maintain laser focus and engagement even in the face of pressure
  • Boosted energy levels and increase motivation 
  • Instantly settle any anxieties or stressful thoughts that make life or situations unbearable - basically you will have tools available on demand dealing with those situations immediately
  • Engage with and influence those around you in a much more meaningful and successful way
  • Connect with and inspire others
  • Make crystal clear decisions that you can trust and act upon with or without pro and con lists.
  • Have an accurate understanding about people and situations (seeing them for what they are!)
  • Boosted resilience and focus even when in the company of difficult people (super valuable)


We arrange individual dates and times for those intensive sessions. It’s important that you have time and space and that this is really YOUR time (meaning that you won’t be disturbed). These sessions will be very profound and deep (still playful – so no worries) and it will be a lot to take in. So make sure that you have some time afterwards to let everything sink in. We’ll talk via skype or zoom or – if you happen to live close to me – in person. These 2 in person and 3 online sessions will take place within a week, so there will be options to fit it into your calendar.

You will have worksheets to print out – they will help you during the journey – you document whatever is important for you.

The worksheets and some more information on the individual steps will be provided in an online format. So you can access it anytime. You will be given access to the online platform directly after you’ve booked the program. Before we have the session you’ve got to print some worksheets – no worries though, the instructions on what to print when are very clear. 

If we work on Skype or zoom I will send you the links to connect with me and we'll arrange times which work for both of us - pretty straight forward.

The program works in person or via the fantastic internet - that is the beauty of it. So regardless of where you are, we can work together.

First and foremost your time. And your commitment. As you're investing in YOURSELF. 

I do expect that you pull this through and work with me, as soon as you have decided to go for it.

Yes, there is also a price tag attached to it: The 5-Week Program is 1490$, you can also work with me for 3 months or 6 months, where you'll go out with a plethora of your questions in your life and business addressed and resolved on top of the already incredibly profound and full-on core program!

The prices are 2990$ for the total package of 3 months and 5990$ for 6 months.

My work delivers great results. Always. If you - for whatever reason - believe after the first intensive session that this does not work for you, you'll get your money back. No questions asked (unless you want to tell me why).

That's my promise to you as I know that there is so much "stuff" out there in the market with lots of promises which are not always kept.

If you can't afford my packages, please apply for one of my pro bono packages which I give away every month. Please apply here for your free spot.

In any case I can't wait to work with you!

Oh - and if you refer someone else to me after YOUR Light Up, I grant a refund of 15% of the purchase value of your referral as a thank you for spreading the word! This is how much we value your recommendation.

You can either have an upfront call with me to get all your questions answered, which you can schedule HERE.

Or you can book YOUR PERSONAL LIGHT UP directly here.

After the booking I'll get in touch with you about dates and times for your journey and you'll get access to the online part of the program (including a questionnaire, the worksheets and some more information) immediately. 

If you can't afford to work with me for whatever reason and you're still very keen to go through the experience, please apply for one of my free pro bono sessions - can't wait to hear from you!

Please apply here for your pro-bono session. Based upon your answers and the applications I get I will decide who's most eligible for one of the monthly pro bono (free of charge) Light Up. 

I will consider EVERY application and let you know personally (via e-mail) if you are eligible (which means you get it right away OR you go on the waitlist) 

I'm bi-lingual in German and English - hence I'm very happy to deliver Light Up in both languages. 

In fact, currently I'm the only one who does deliver this unique program in German. 

Claudia Hesse, Activator & Founder of The Better Workplace

Not Your Average Leadership & Resilience Coach


"The Better Workplace" is the second business I have been building up after my corporate career - and this time I am finally in a place where my heart is: l am combining all the knowledge, experience, scars and joy that I have accumulated after almost 30 years of avidly juggling work, building up my first own business, leading teams, coaching clients and at the same striving to be a great mum of my two wonderful (almost grown up) children, with this unique and ground-breaking method of Light Up into courses, which can shift lives!

I am one of currently 20 certified activators/coaches world wide for this unique method and the first one to introduce it in my program in Switzerland and Germany in English and German.

20 years in the exciting and dynamic IT industry have shaped a good part of my path. It was the perfect place to start a great career and juggling hundreds of millions in a multi-national IT company was fun. I am very grateful for all the learnings and experiences which stem from the challenges I faced in this fast moving world.

Smooth journey?

Not at all. I did not always succeed. I got divorced and lost my job. At the same time. And fought a lot for success - sometimes up to exhaustion.

But this is probably also where I learned the most. And experienced what works....and what doesn't.

Even now it is still rather bumpy sometimes with supporting two young adults to find their own paths and building up the most exciting business of all I could experience so far.

It would be an honour to be part of your exclusive journey.
