Doing meaningful and fun work is not a privilege reserved for the few,

but a choice we all make every day.

You can learn to make the right choices! It doesn’t matter if you run a global company or pick asparagus.

Some mistakes are a work of art.

So good they are unique

When working with teams, I encourage an open culture around mistakes. Mistakes are there to be shared, not hidden away in shame. Instead of being stuck in the ’storming’ phase, sweeping mistakes under the carpet, I encourage people to openly discuss the errors made and to break them down so they can learn how to create a work of art from them. Mistakes are allowed.


More exciting than balance sheets and figures?

The rough edges of employees! 

The most interesting thing about my work is what lies behind the story: the characters of the employees. Here is where you find the biggest obstacles and the greatest potential. Here is where it is decided whether things run like clockwork or whether progress falters.


Liebe Ilona, nochmals vielen Dank für den gelungenen Workshop. Fasziniert hat mich, dass Du jeweils im Kontext reagiert hast und einen Moment später auf der Metaebene kommentiert hast, was jetzt passiert ist. Damit hast Du uns viele Dinge wirklich anschaulich vor Augen geführt. Vielen Dank.

Patience, observation, méthodologie sont autant de qualités dont Ilona sait se servir pour créer un environnement propice à une prise de conscience à la fois individuelle et collective lors des stages dispensés et ceci sans oublier le fun, bravo!

Da war viel Energie, Authentizität und Fachwissen, aber auch Einfühlungsvermögen und Durchsetzungskraft. Ilona Geiger gehört zu den Coaches, die es schaffen, einen Haufen Kreativer zwei Tage lang in der Spur zu halten. Respekt!

Managing Director, Studio F. A. Porsche, Österreich

Dear Ilona, in the name of team I would like to thank you for the excellent workshop as well as the documentation you put together for us. The workshop was educational, eye – and mind opening and constructive, along with tons of fun. Everyone enjoyed it. It was just the right thing at the right time and for the right team to do.

Management Support, CREDIT SUISSE AG, Private Banking, Switzerland

Joining your workshop was an eye-opener. There are things we (I) usually do at work that don’t feel 100% right. We do them because that’s what we’re used to, mainly, and we keep doing because…we don’t know better – especially when it comes to communication. Your workshop helped me identifying these wrong processes and “update the firmware”. I feel I walked out with meaningful tools and I’m looking forward to putting to practice what I have learnt.
