My dream is to help others to be „Holistic Warriors“, open-minded responsible people with a clear vision, who want to grow and reach their goals while living the best possible version of themselves and make a difference in the world every day.
Annette Böhmer, Founder
Hey, I am Annette, the founder and creative head behind HOLISTIC WARRIOR®.
I am 45 years old, German, an entrepreneur and the mum of a 3 years old son. I claim myself to be Design Thinker and Holistic Coach.
For many years I went through jobs that took all my energy, I felt disappointed through competition and comparison, I almost got burnout due to day and night long work on too many things and most importantly: I was not sure about my life’s purpose. Thank God that Yoga, Design Thinking, Neurology, Positive Psychology and High Performance Coaching™ crossed my way in the last ten years. I am sure otherwise I would not have found this joyful and highly efficient “modern warrior” approach that helped me in reaching my goals, leveraging my potential more fully, getting to know my purpose and living purposefully, being (most of the times) in good physical and mental health, and of course also performing quite well in what I love to do.
All themethods I talk about and teach/ coach are proven by applying them on myself first and of course also on another bunch of people. I believe in continuous evolution in life and that’s why I alwaysput lots of time and effort intolearning and applying new stuff.
My mission is to help individuals, teams and companies to leverage their full innovative potential. Therefore understanding the specific needs and future challenges for me is always the starting point. I love to guide individuals and teams through analytic insights phases as well as through inspiring, fun and creative ideation and prototyping sessions.
Through studies of the human brain, positive psychology and philosophy, I always take the holistic view on any kind of problem.
My educational background is a Diploma in Geography and Economy. I have been applying Design Research / Empathetic Research methods for almost 20 years. I was working as a research consultant and customer experience expert in the tourism, finance and telecommunication industry.
Since 2007 I am a certified yoga teacher, since 2011 a certified Jivamukti™ teacher and since 2018 I have been studying the Z-Health™ curriculum (neuro-athletic training) where I already got R-, I-, S- and T-Phase certification as well as 9S Next Evolution, Speed and Structure. In 2019 I became a Certified High Performance Coach™.
During my 10 years at Deutsche Telekom Innovation Laboratories, I have become an expert in applying and teaching design thinking. Through design thinking, I learned to consequently put the customer in the center of all innovation thinking.
I have more than 10 years of work experience in designing and moderating customized workshops and training formats.
My vision is to support at least 1000 people with their problems or changes in a solution-oriented way and to help them become the best version of themselves. Be part of it!
Sandra Uhrig, Collaboration Partner
Hi, my name is Sandra, 43 years old and a partner at HOLISTIC WARRIOR®. Above all, I am a Life and Business Coach and Change Manager. And the mom of 2 wonderful daughters (8 and 10 years old).
My work experience of more than 10 years as a management consultant, most recently as a partner in a consulting start-up, has fulfilled me and my thirst for knowledge for a long time. I was able to learn a lot, grow incredibly and, above all, work with different people on different projects. I am very grateful for that. For all these years, the focus has always been to recognize and support? people with their fears and worries, as well as their abilities. This has mirrored my customers and my teams again and again.
In the last 2 years, I realized that the top of my learning curve has been reached and the pure consulting activity with weekly trips no longer fits my current life model. I was permanently stressed and exhausted, 2 leg fractures clearly showed me my physical limitations.
I lacked the inspiration and vision for something new. Without the fixed rituals (daily meditation, journaling), reading from many counsellors on personality development, completing my yoga teacher training and sharing with many inspiring women and men, I would not have made my personal change.
Also, I worked out my Magic Board (wonderfully creative), worked on my Why (Wow), changed my daily routine (with interruptions, adjustments, restarts, etc.) and became the designer of my life. I am infinitely grateful for that.
Due to a large number of clients and my own experience, I can put myself well in the respective coachees and accompany them professionally. In coaching sessions and workshops, I always have my own moments of happiness when participants have an AHA experience or change something for the better.
