Caring | Committed | Passionate


Who Do You Like To Work With?

When it comes to the development of your leaders, what kind of partner do you want?
Is being heard, understood, challenged and supported important for you?

GAIA Insights’ employees, partners and coaches are handpicked to find the best possible solutions and equip your people with the leadership qualities required to accomplish your business goals.

To make a difference in someone’s life, you don’t have to be brilliant, beautiful or perfect. You just have to care.

GAIA Insights Is for You If You:

  • Aspire to transform your own or your company’s leadership – supported by a caring team that is driven by the passion to make a long-lasting impact and is committed to see you succeed

  • Want to benefit from a boutique firm with the reach of a global player – combining flexibility with a strong network of expert partners and coaches from around the world

  • Wish to work with a partner who doesn’t only pay lip service to the ‘new world of work’ but actually lives it – we run a virtual business, practice what we preach, and draw on regenerative leadership and teal principles

“Each of our GAIA Insights teams was incredibly invested in the program and worked hands-on with all participants, ensuring everyone was empowered to get the maximum out of their personal and collective development journey.”

M. Nicoud, Global Talent Management & Leadership Development Leader, Netherlands 

“Some of the best coaches and support team I have experienced in my work career. Lots of thought put into the sessions and I love the focus on the smaller details.”

Robert Leo Maslamoney, Managing Director Maersk Angola

Our Partners

Our partners dedicate their expertise and facilitation to deliver programs tailored to your requirements. Collectively, they have served client organizations of all shapes and sizes, in many different industries and geographies around the world.

Essentially working with GAIA Insights is like attending a concert, where we are the conductor of an orchestra and each musician is a master of their instrument. Bringing them all together is when the magic happens. It’s GAIA Insights’ unique blend that creates the leadership development program you want for your next generation of leaders.

Our Coach Network

GAIA Insights’ strong and diverse coach network around the world will serve you when and where you need it. We partner with over 100 coaches from 30 countries across 5 continents. Apart from their local practice, all our coaches provide remote services. While we do not subscribe to any one coaching method over another, all our coaches are experienced in tailoring their methodology and approach to each individual client. They draw their expertise from an academic coaching qualification and varied life experiences in the fields of business, psychology, mindfulness, spirituality, health and cultural studies.

What’s important in our approach to coaching is that participants get to choose their coach from a handpicked selection of profiles. We carefully match each individual and offer them a diverse set of coaches considering language, cultural background, different approaches and various styles to choose from. Participants have ‘chemistry calls’ with several coaches prior to choosing who they wish to work with, thus taking accountability for their learning and personal growth. Trust and respect are the cornerstones of every coaching relationship we engage in, coupled with empathy and confidentiality, as well as open and constructive feedback.

Where We Work

GAIA Insights is a 100% virtual business, all our employees are home-based in various countries around the world. Our paperless workspace is a given, flexibility around working hours and locations is self-evident. Our staff members take as many holidays as they can responsibly manage, and voluntary social engagement counts as work-time. We recently implemented a horizontal organizational set-up, including self-managed teams. All this because we do not only believe in the future of work, we choose to create it.

See below to find out which regions our core team members and coaches call home. Since our expert partners work globally, they are not placed on the map, instead we flag the places where we have delivered live sessions so far.
