Hi, I am Michaela Lindinger, founder, CEO and mastermind behind braininspa! My vision is to inspire executives, 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 transformation 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 as well as a working mom 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 Executive and Leadership Coach, High Performance Expert, Sparring Partner, Employee Experience Angel, Keynote Speaker and Team Development 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!
