Hello, I’m Nicole Schaller, founder of Nicole Schaller management + leadership academy. I help European business leaders to tackle the big and daily management and leadership challenges that come with starting, scaling and reinventing a business.
Founded in 2010 as an organization consulting based on my fresh master’s degree in management, leadership and organizational behavior/psychology, Nicole Schaller is now an online academy with courses, coaching, and a learning community.
I’ve started working with startups a couple of years ago, helping them to start lean, develop their business model and become entrepreneurs. For high-growth businesses, I am exploring approaches to scaling people while maintaining excellence. In SME management, I am increasingly focused on how to reinvent the management and leadership system to unleash human potential like creativity and engagement.
Fundamentally, it’s always about management innovation – how can we business leaders reinvent the way we manage our business and lead our people to create a distinct solution instead of adopting “best practices” by working backwards from the company we want to create and the specific goals like innovation by everyone, or leaders everywhere, that we are trying to achieve.
An industrial business administrator by training, I worked in European B2B industry and services for 15 years. In this capacity, I assisted senior management and ran corporate offices, conducted cross-functional commercial processes, and collaborated on controlling, organizational and consulting projects.
I’ve lived in Italy and France, and speak English, German, French and Italian – so, while the courses are in English, we can talk in your language in the coaching calls if you prefer.

While studying at the FernUniversität, Mrs. Schaller worked successfully on ‘learning organization’ and ‘organizational citizenship behavior’. She convinced with sophisticated elaboration and competent reflection in excellent seminar papers and presentations. For her current engagement, I wish her every success!
