ABOUT DANA POUL-GRAF

Dana is a cross-disciplinary consultant, mentor, and coach supporting leaders in discovering their authentic path to engage their teams, establish great cultures and live their strategy.

Throughout her career in different industries and companies of various sizes, Dana observed the essential impact that a leader’s self-awareness has. Being quickly promoted into roles of increasing responsibilities, she realized that no matter how excellent the strategy, how well-defined the solutions, or how valuable the services an organization provides, determining factor of success will be the quality of the leadership. However, just like herself in the past, many leaders may feel isolated, missing a partner to provide a mirror, help them think, and implement the results of that process.

Guided by empathy, creativity, and deeply honoring others, she partners with her clients in finding the meaning in what we – humans - do. Together with her team, Dana looks under the surface of things to bring back the spark of passion that connects teams and triggers positive change. With her work, engagement and productivity increase, and sustainable environments are formed. Dana’s key values are honesty, fairness, love, and care.
