with the guidance of senior coaches in theory and practice

Martina Smith

As a senior coach, Martina is distinguished by her highly developed intuition for people and situations, which benefits all participating coachees.

Born in Bavaria in 1956, she started as a psychotherapist in her own practice. In the 1990s, various international companies approached her and commissioned her to train people and to shape changes in mentality, self-reflection and conflict resolution. Long before the term coaching was used, Martina advised executives around the globe. As a consequence, she founded People in Process, which she managed in partnership with Hugh Ralph since 2001. This co-creative cooperation makes it possible to consciously include gender-specific perspectives in the coaching process.
