Born in Lindau, a small town at Lake Constance, Irina founded the company in 2013. She is passionate about helping businesses and people at all levels in the process of finding out what each company and individual really needs to capitalize on and develop their full potential. What distinguishes her is the rare combination of excellent functional expertise in change management and HR operation models, in-depth knowledge of business economics and corporate relationships as well as a profound understanding of the human psyche.
Irina Hagen wants to actively drive change and the associated paradigm shift. She sees herself as a mastermind who likes to inspire and make people think. She is a forerunner when it comes to the pragmatic implementation of modern concepts, in which people work together, create economic and idealistic value and actively shape the togetherness.
Her curiosity and her aspiration to excellence motivates her to constantly develop herself, to learn new methods and to anticipate trends expertly.
CEO, Organizational Coach and Speaker
Within her almost 20 years of professional experience in international strategy consultancies and commercial enterprises in Germany and abroad, her focus is on corporate and organizational development, personnel management and cooperation.
After many years of accompanying top management personalities, she is well acquainted with the day-to-day work of corporations and SMEs. She, too, as a leader has experienced the “typical joys and sorrows” in her role and can therefore provide authentic and pragmatic support.
Her degree in International Management helps her to master both economic and intercultural challenges in theory and practice. In order to understand people, their motivation and their interaction in the wider context, the trained psychotherapist (HPrG) has various psychological certificates, e.g. Hypnosis, completed at renowned institutes and lecturers.
Working with professors and chairs at prestigious colleges is very important to her in order to keep up with the times and to support her practical work with heart and experience as well as the latest scientific and research findings.
She is a lecturer in HR Management at the MediaDesign University in Munich.
