Developing Women Leaders
Coaching-based solutions will help your women develop what they need for success
Lisa Sennhauser-Kelly, leveraged her leadership and life experiences into becoming an executive coach, with the goal to improve one corporate leader at a time.
I gained more than 30 years corporate experience in 3 continents – Australia, USA and Europe – with companies including Commonwealth Bank, KPMG, Black & Decker, and UBS. My last corporate role was as CFO of Equatex Global, a PE owned spinoff of UBS which grew rapidly prior to ultimate sale to ComputerShare.
Once I learned to be my authentic self, and not try to emulate others, I was successful. I was promoted to Executive Director then also Managing Director in UBS despite being from a different culture, being female, and juggling a young family. I have a passion for passing on my learnings to others who are also seeking to thrive and perform, professionally and personally. I also have a passion to learn, and in addition to learning from my coachees, and my original Chartered Accountancy and Swiss Finance Institute certifications, I am now proud to be an ICF accredited coach at PCC level, an EMCC Accredited Coach at Senior Practitioner level and a Marshall Goldsmith Certified Stakeholder Centred Coach.Get in touch
As a coach I am more of a facilitator, partnering with clients to inspire them to become self-aware, to grow, and to thrive; maximizing their professional as well as their personal potential. While my leadership experiences lend credibility to my coaching, I believe my main strength lies in my ability to laser in and pinpoint or identify triggers/drivers, and thus transform individuals and their organisations to facilitate growth.
Clients describe my coaching as inspiring, encouraging and insightful.
Lisa has experience coaching clients across a variety of organisations including; financial services (banks, insurance, private equity, hedge funds) in Switzerland, UK, Canada and USA, Engineering/technology (Switzerland, Portugal, and global), Pharmaceutical (Swiss based global multinationals), FinTech startups and Consulting firms.
"The six sessions I had with my ECC Coach changed my perspective of coaching. I was initially uncertain (and possibly sceptical) about the benefits of coaching but my coach read me very well and knew when to coax a response out from me by being encouraging and when to firmly push me to see the benefits of reframing some of my previously held positions."Head of Legal, International Property Group
"Both from my personal experience of ECC’s approach, and from seeing the impact on our company I can particularly recommend their pragmatic approach and their insight into our collective and individual needs."Senior Leader, Commercial Property Management and Investment Company

The coaching they provide on an individual basis has given valuable insight and helped our senior executives to gain greater perspective in terms of managing relationships, prioritising, strategic thinking, influencing and confidence."Senior Leader, Multinational Retailing Company
"I found my ECC coaching sessions incredibly valuable - for the unique and necessary space I was seeking as a sole proprietor to feel heard, understood and connected to a peer in business. My coaching experience provided a safe space where I could be the real me, and provided a relationship I could truly trust. Thank you ECC."Manager, Creative Retail Agency
