Supporting People and Business.

Maya Weber

Dipl. Psych. FH

Certified Banking Specialist

Born in 1971, business owner and operator Maya Weber is an acknowledged expert in assessment and coaching at senior management level. She brings many years of experience from a variety of roles and industries.

  • Extensive experience of running individual assessment centres and development centres for executives
  • A broad spectrum of coaching offerings for board members, senior managers and other leadership personalities in both national and international companies
  • A wide range of role-specific professional development opportunities, including existential coaching with Alfried Längle in Vienna
  • Experience from holding various positions in the consulting and finance industry

“I see my everyday work with people as a calling. I am passionately interested in people – and in getting to see behind their façades. With sympathy and empathy, I confront people with clear challenges. In the process of getting to know a person’s hidden potential, I put my finger on the pain points in order to achieve true personal development and optimum results.

In my private life I like to spend time with my family – my husband and our two children – and share confidences with the people who are near and dear to me. For me, experiencing honest and profound encounters, living and letting others live, sharing laughter, changing perspectives and learning from one another are vital components of a fulfilled life.

“Putting people first” is a guiding principle for me, both in my professional and private life.”

Janine Rupp Renfer

State-certified Administrator

”As an administrative assistant at MW AG, it is my pleasure to welcome you to your consultation or assessment, and to be at your service behind the scenes throughout the entire day. My mission is to make your time with us in Zurich, as intense as it is, as pleasant as possible.
