Creative Performance

We foster serendipity and tap into the potential of your collective intelligence to create new solutions for the challenges at hand. We break silos by bringing together teams of different departments who are typically not working directly together.

The Human Harbours Creative Performance program works like a mastermind: it is a group coaching program in which we will foster a greater collaborative mindset, employee dependability & safety and pump up your capabilities to design daring and creative solutions by leveraging the group’s wisdom and ressources. It’s a fun and engaging way to build trust, create cohesion and drive results.

We typically use a combination of meditation, awareness building, applied psychology and neuro-science backed methods to create lasting change inside out. We inspire and create momentum which we weave into a new becoming.

Our programs intend to help your leadership team and organisation grow:

  • different sets of intelligences than the ones usually at play in business (e.g. spatial, emotional, kinesthetic)
  • chosen human qualities/ressources that back your values & company essence
  • new beliefs which better support your future.

Coaching for Transformation

Leading a fulfilled and integrated life which brings together all the aspects of who you are is often a messy and adventurous process. The golden nuggets of potentials and path finding are sometimes hidden, invisible and under the surface. Especially in these highly trying times, finding a coach who can be a safe harbour and yet challenge you to grow into your best potential is a precious investment.

Drawing on a deep international business experience and a rich multi-cultural life which has brought me sharp abilities to notice blockages/ pain-points and hold an unshakable space where you can dive into your challenges and highest potential, I help you let go, reset and weave your genuine Self into your life and business.

You can expect fresh & unique insights to support your development and a fierce yet loving accompaniment.

Sahar Schwaninger, Founder

I have worked for 15 years in international management positions with well-known brands in the food & consumer industry. Throughout a successful career, I often asked myself: how could we do things differently so we may be more truthful to ourselves and create a better impact together? What is really needed from us so we can become truly innovative? How can we be authentic to Self and at the same time serve others and the greater world?

These questions and a personal need for greater coherence between the often opposed Life & Business took me on a decade-long, sometimes arduous and other times humbling self-transformation journey through which I became convinced of the need to bring our essential humanity back in the business culture by creating safe spaces of deeper connection, transformation and creative explorations. I have understood that Business is a precious component of Life and that thriving requires integration of all life aspects in an ongoing creative process of development.

Since 2010, I have studied and practiced Tibetan Buddhist meditation, ancestral wisdom teachings, mindfulness, yoga, the neuroscience of stress and beliefs, non-violent communication, emotional intelligence, human archetypes, creative visualisations, belief re-patterning, conscious leadership and more recently living systems thinking which is the foundation of Human Harbours.

I have been working through the past 7 years in human development supporting the growth of individuals and groups through coaching & mentoring, meditations and workshops.

I hold an MBA from ESSEC business school and a Master’s degree in International business from Paris IX University Dauphine, France.

It is my privilege to support your development towards your highest potential as an individual, as a team and an organisation.
