Louise Schubert works both as an Organisation Consultant and Executive Coach. She is English and lives just outside Barcelona. She supports Managers as they identity and sharpen their own skills set, in order to widen their portfolio of responsibilities, move to the next level or face other types of change.
Her clients appreciate the way she listens to them, the insights that she provides and the way she challenges and provides feedback. This is all bound together by a pragmatic approach and awareness of the wider context.
Louise left the UK 25 years ago, to live first in Madrid and then Athens, before moving to Barcelona in 1999. She has always had a curiosity for languages and new cultures. She was brought up in an environment where two European languages were spoken. This facet of her life continues within her own family, where Austrian and English cultures interweave with Spanish and Catalan. As well as English, she speaks Spanish, French, German and conversational Catalan.
Her first qualifications were in Hotel Management and after a few years in operations she specialised in Leaning and Development. She held different corporate positions managing Learning and Development in Retail and within an International Hotel and Leisure organisation, initially in London and then in Madrid. Now as an Independent Consultant and Coach, Louise enjoys the mix of working with her own clients and as an associate of larger consultancies, who benefit from her profile and expertise. She works with both Fortune 500 companies and smaller enterprises. She also collaborates with Business Schools in Barcelona as a Coach and Coach Supervisor.
She gained an MSC in Organisation Consulting from Ashridge; has qualified as an Executive Coach with the Academy of Executive Coaching and as Coach Supervisor with Ashridge. She was recently awarded the European Individual Accreditation as Senior Coach Practitioner, with the European Mentoring and Coaching Council (EMCC). She is an active Member of Toastmasters and has achieved the level of Competent Communicator.
She is a Member of the Chartered Insitute of Personel and Development (CIPD) the EMCC, and their Spanish equivalents, AOCS (Association of Coach Supervisors) and is their ambassador for Spain. She is licensed in LIFO®, FIRO B, and the Hermann Brain Type Indicator.
