About Claudia

Claudia on TV

I have been featured on international TV, radio and other media including NBC Las Vegas and ABC Bakersfield. Being in my early 30s, I have compiled over 10 years in customer service, sales, marketing, management, training and coaching. I have worked in small and medium-sized companies, in large corporations like Oracle and VMware as well as several years as an entrepreneur. As an Personal Top Performance Consultant, Mentor and Coach, I work with leaders and their teams to empower every member to turn THEMSELVES into happy & engaged top performers in 6-12 months or less who are willing to go the extra mile and are raving fans of the company. That way they have more impact on anybody they need to influence such as Key Opinion Leaders or clients.

The promise is based up the idea of turning individuals into raving fans of the company. Using an out of the box coaching approach that is based on my own journey from burnout to top performer in less than 6 months, I support clients to let go of stress, turn that new-found energy into new perspectives, drive and massive inspired action and from there into the potential for new results. I bring clear instructions, passion, lightness and commitment to my clients’ desired outcomes, empowering you to develop leadership potential in your new raving fan employees that fosters results-driven, engaged and collaborative teams.

My entire philosophy is based around the following: A happy top performer with a balanced life is a raving fan leader for their company. Why is this true? Because it happened to me. Being a raving fan of the companies I worked for allowed me to go the extra mile providing service beyond my job description. All of my clients turn themselves and their team into what I described. As an empathetic and innovative thinker, I have a talent for developing innovative pragmatic solutions that can be implemented right away. My approach may seem upside down from the typical employee engagement style but that is what makes it so effective. A team is as effective as the weakest link. You start from the bottom and empower the weakest link and the entire chain as well as the already well-performing employees work much more effectively together.

The majority of my experience originates from my time at the IT corporations Oracle and VMware in Prague, Czech Republic and Cork, Ireland. Within few months from March 2009 to May 2010, I made a major turnaround in my performance. At Oracle, I already consistently belonged to the top performers of the inside sales team since 2006 in spite of my burnout. But at VMware, I was able to become so productive and engaged that I belonged to the top 300 sales professionals of the company and was invited to the President’s Club within my first 6 months at the company. Several of the initiatives I started were implemented including an innovation program in which VMware can leverage the genius of its employees. I was able to turn my own burnout into the platform for a turnaround in attitude, energy and in turn also performance which is what I teach my clients now.Claudia Baier

I have the German equivalent of the MBA from a German University Of Applied Sciences, am a Certified Professional Coach as well as a certified EFT Practitioner Level I and have completed an international exchange program with the Weber State University in USA (within the 10 best business schools in the USA) in the following areas: Influence and Group Effectiveness, Negotiation, Promotion Management, Italian & Spanish. I have been working with the Anthony Robbins Companies as well as T Harv Eker Companies at events (such as Business Mastery, Leadership Academy Bootcamp, Train The Trainer, Guerrilla Business Intensive and Unleash the Power Within) and learned a lot about how to influence people. I continue to expand my knowledge, skills and expertise with additional training by Tony Robbins, T Harv Eker and other premier trainers. Through my own experience as a recruitment consultant and through extensive self-studies on the subject of career management, sales, customer service and management, I learned about what works and what does not work when it comes to motivating someone to go the extra mile or buy into your ideas.

My training is based on the techniques, insights and results-based focus that helped me turn my own performance and sense of well-being around. I take my clients through a performance turnaround in which they discover and learn to leverage their own resources for stress resistance, fear busting, attitude adjustment, goal-setting and alignment as well as a motivational boost whenever they need.

Additionally, I have extensive experience in leadership development and coaching, talent discovery and nurturing. I have worked globally across cultures in the USA and Europe with various industries such as IT, real estate, recruitment, banking. My clients are from all over the globe working in industries such as pharmaceuticals, IT, advertising, recruitment, publicity, internet marketing, banking, education, food, coaching, new energy, hospitality, and more. I use my strong interpersonal, cross cultural and relationship building skills when serving your organization which is useful in creating results based on trust and engagement.

Sample Relevant Testimonial From A Client From The Pharmaceutical Industry

Please go tohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGFfhI4AdKMto watch the interview with a quality manager who ran a team in Italy for a major pharmaceutical company. As a result from working with me, she was chosen for a high achiever program within her organization now working in the USA. She was chosen from thousands of applicants, among other things, because she chose to use the strategies I taught her with her team and empowered them to also go the extra mile on their own initiative.

Claudia’s Purpose

The reason why Claudia is focusing on helping individuals and the companies they work for in that unique way is that Claudia herself went through burnout in the years 2007 to 2009. She felt as if she had to carry an elephant on her shoulders all day and ended up walking like an old lady, hunched over, because that was the only way that she did not feel the physical pain that much.

Reasons for the burnout were:

  1. being bullied by co-workers
  2. fear of losing her job
  3. over-working
  4. loss of perspective
  5. unhappiness with situation of living
  6. feeling & behaving like a doormat
  7. complaining
  8. poor diet
  9. loss of hope of achieving goals

During that time, she took sick leave but only for 6 weeks during which the situation did not really change but she was afraid to lose her job if she stays away from work for too long. The only time she felt energy and happy during that time was when she went Salsa dancing. That is the proof that even during a time of complete exhaustion, a person can feel energy under the right circumstances.

During that time, she also was diagnosed with Adult ADD. That diagnosis started a search for personal development that still is going on. Additionally, during that time she was reading quite a few novels to distract herself from the prison she felt in. In that search, she stumbled over a strategy with which she was able to release her fear of losing her job along with the emotional side of her burnout within 15 minutes. She discovered there are several contributors that are enabling burnout to develop and you to release your burnout. These areas are:

  1. Emotional Freedom (Your Fears)
  2. Healthy Diet (Your Nutrition)
  3. Motivation (Your Goals, Your Sense Of Fulfillment & Your Sense Of Achievement)
