The future of work and the digital economy is much more about people than technology. At braininspa we enable this transformation on a personal and team level in order to create an innovative and talent-focused culture and a trust-based spirit with proven methods.

brain in spa is an executive sparring & employee experience company. We nudge millennial and experienced management professionals into healthy high performance so they can thrive in the digital transformation – with clarity, productivity and true passion!

The digital economy is exciting, liberating and wildly complicated. So how can you stay current? Better yet, how can you live on the forefront of innovation to exceed your own career ambitions? And how can you maximize your professional success without risking your health in the process? Who can help you to connect the dots and show you the best path to get what you really deserve?


Hi, I am Michaela Lindinger, founder, CEO and mastermind behind braininspa! My vision is to inspire professionals, entrepreneurs and next-generation leaders for working with more clarity, productivity, passion and presence NOW!

As one of the youngest executives in an international management consulting firm, I’ve worked with Fortune 500 organizations and clients around the world on digital strategies and large scale change projects. I was responsible for helping client teams with value creation, product and process innovations in multi-million-dollar projects. I have also worked with several national and international startups and corporates to guide their talents when preparing for the challenges of the digital transformation and adjusting their business models to become agile and purpose-driven again.

I understand successful entrepreneurs and ambitious leaders because I am a millennial serial founder and experienced corporate executive, working parent and family-manager. At 28, I received the Leadership Award for visionary leadership. I’m a lecturing professor for bachelor and masters courses on innovation and business models since the age of 29, a member of the international Forbes Coaches Council and the International Society for Coaching Psychology. For the last 15+ years I inspired my clients as a consultant and entrepreneur, keynote speaker, executive sparring partner, coach and productivity trainer.

Not that I haven’t worked with coaches before, but there is hardly  ever someone as focused and present as Michaela when working with her. Plus her way of not teaching content but having you implement simple yet powerful things quickly – even in my busy schedule – and seeing results soon was awesome!
