The relationships we are in in work, life and love are our biggest teachers and the best place for our growth. They bring it all up.
Are you looking for an experienced guide to help you grow lotus from the struggles you are in?
Know yourself in profoundly new ways and lead your relationships toward greater understanding, deeper connection, and richer collaboration.Let´s connect
I am a relational leadership coach, organizational culture consultant, and passionate partnership development mentor, dedicated to
empowering intentional individuals in the making (we all are!) to grow lotus through the muddy times in our relationships in work,
life and love.
My work evokes and guides into the often thick struggle of becoming, particularly when the struggle is the other :)
I work with leaders, lovers, duos, teams and families to get to the developmental juice at the center of relationship struggles. Life grows us this way.
My approach is informed by cutting edge adult development insight, the integral lens on life itself, systemic creative conflict engagement work and a deep commitment to amplifying peace and wellbeing between people and within. I offer guidance and perspective to stimulate a more clarified presence in conflict, more authentic engagement in relationships, and a richer inner integration to lead others from.
I am passionate about inbetween spaces, between people, cultures, traditions, religions, differences. I live and practice in many of those, join me finding your way in yours!
My work and this site shares in-depth knowledge, resources and inspiration to use the potential in disturbance and conflict well and evolve your capacity to lead and co-create powerfully, from the inside out.
I am right there with you through the inner work that is your next stage of development, well-being, growth, and wilder life.

for cultures of extraordinary collaboration, alignment and well being.
The biggest transformation for me through working with Nina was the sense of clarity around what truly matters to me, and the practice of courage to pursue it more intentionally. I left with a re-calibration of my inner compass and a renewed source of energy. I’d recommend Nina with absolute conviction. She has the ability to listen with curiosity and empathy; and the skill of crafting powerful questions that move the conversation to a much deeper level. I found myself zooming in and out, framing and re-framing, and being able to articulate my newly gained insights. Nina knows how to create and hold a strong and safe container to explore, to allow for chaos on the way to clarity, and to harvest the learnings along the well-designed coaching journey. I truly admire how she can offer enough structure and yet hold it lightly to make room what wants to emerge. Above all, I felt most grateful for Nina’s genuine care and commitment to my growth and my goals – and I know she went above and beyond to empower me on my quest.

I felt like my challenges were piling up and my known mechanisms to deal with things were not working anymore. The biggest transformation in working with Nina was discovering new sides within me and deeply understanding that if I change my own attitude towards a situation, the situation itself will transform. I learned that rather than aiming at behavior change in others, I can expand my own way of being in a situation. I would absolutely recommend Nina’s services to others, she is gifted in intuition and capacity tracking her clients challenges and guiding the way to an integrated way forward – step by step, close to reality and with great empathy.

Nina understands like no other, very systematically and consistently and with a powerful visual language, how to unbury your own wishes and beliefs, to illuminate them, to question and to re-arrange them that it not only is ok obviously, but also makes sense big time. These are pretty intense sessions, accompanied by tasks for my everyday life, in which old patterns of behaviors and especially patterns of thought are quickly recognized, and new perspectives and attitudes are adopted and slowly implemented. Yep, it´s exhausting, absolutely personal, extremely emotional, and thus at the same time refreshingly practicable beyond these sessions. Nina Nisar is a real one-of-a-kind expert, five star rating from me.

Ninas coaching helped me gain several insights out of a challenging conflict situation that I wouldn’t have discovered had there not been a conflict and her coaching about it. She is an outstanding mediator, among other reasons, because: She listens with all her heart (it’s an odd expression but made much less so in being heard by her). This is healing. She brings a gentle strength and strong gentleness to her engagement with people, in both collaborative and conflictual contexts. And indeed, she doesn’t shy from conflict. She knows that like art, like dance, like life, differences are the birthplace of creatively.

Nina has been a sharp guide and supported me to widen my perspectives on how I can be with my challenges. I really appreciated her focus on embodiment, my mind knew what to do, but to feel it in the body and integrating it in the way I show up was what I needed most. I’m grateful for the process and can highly recommend Nina as a coach.

Nina is the most amazing woman I have been working with. The way she has been able to support me is unique – her approach is unique. She is able to combine different methods and tools that perfectly fit what I exactly need and she helps me moving forward – regardless of how challenging the process is. Above everything, Nina is able to make me feel safe and secure – in a way that allows me to open up freely without any fear of being judged. She is truly inspiring and I wish that everyone could have the chance to work with and benefit from her the way I do.

Invitation to Lean in
My colleagues Jay Rothman and Rowan Simonsen and I are hosting a community of practice that empowers us all to lean in when it gets difficult.
We have all experienced conflict that hurts. So it is natural to react to it with “fight” or “flight”. We are exploring a fundamentally different way: to engage conflict creatively.
We invite you to explore with us, how conflict can be a doorway into greater coherence in our lives and relationships.Learn more
