Thrive with EQ during challenging times

Having worked for the world's largest crisis management and security organization for almost two decades has provided me with invaluable leadership skills. I have mastered the skills of sound decision-making under little clarity, effective communication under pressure, and creative problem-solving under pressure throughout my career. In challenging times, leadership is about influencing mindsets, conversations, and behaviors. With nearly two decades of experience working with people from over 40 countries across the civil-military sector, I am uniquely qualified to teach my clients how to build high-performing teams during challenging times through emotional intelligence.

About Nadja

Philipp Wachholz

Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), McDonald's Belgium

"Nadja has an outstanding ability to not only adapt to company cultures quickly but adding substantially value to an organization after a very short time. Her broad experience in combination with fast thinking and a high level of empathy are key drivers behind her success. I can only highly recommend Nadja as a professional Entrepreneur, but also an individual with a great character, who can make any team substantially stronger."

Negative Impact on Business Bottom Line

Managers with low levels of emotional intelligence leadership skills are costly.


STEM skills gap costs the economy € 1.7 billion per year. Nearly nine out of ten executives and managers say their organizations either have skill gaps or expect them to develop in the next five years. It takes a new kind of leadership to close the skills gap during an ongoing social workplace revolution.


Gallup found that 79% of employees would resign from their job due to ineffective leadership, and 50% actually do. Organizations worldwide are undergoing a social revolution where employees are demanding better working conditions and a higher quality employee experience.


82% of the time, companies fail to hire the right candidate for the job, according to Gallup. In spite of the current challenging environment, having the right EQ leadership skills will help your remaining high-performing professionals thrive during challenging times.

Senior Consultant, Navy Federal Credit Union

"Nadja’s grasp and explanation of EQ is something I believe should be incorporated not only into every business but educational systems as well – the information received is that important. Speaking with Nadja was never a like a lecture that she needed to get through, it was always a meaningful conversation – she put me at ease, asked thought-provoking questions to get to the heart of a matter."

Make Emotionally Effective Decisions during Crisis & Incidents


"I reached out to Nadja.  As Nadja, and I really share a passion when it comes to the people side of security, and I asked Nadja if she could review the book before publication, and I'm so pleased that she did. She gave me really deep insights into the emotional intelligence and emotional response to major incidents, which really helped bring the book to life."
