Meet The Centered Leadership Team
Frauke Schorr, Ph.D. is Founder and Director of the Centered Leadership Institute; a San Francisco Bay Area based training and consulting company. Over the last 10 years, Frauke has trained and coached thousands of professionals on high performance skills internationally and in the USA. She has worked with large-sized companies such as Conoco Phillips, Bayer Healthcare, SGL Group, Legal Shield, and Shire Pharmaceuticals, mid-sized, and high-potential start-ups.
Frauke regularly speaks about her ongoing research on the “Mindsets of Successful Entrepreneurs and Leaders”, a study that evolved from her Ph.D. research. It disseminates the success structures of highly accomplished leaders and entrepreneurs. Seminars at Centered Leadership Institute are based on the insights of this research, NLP communication techniques, and newest insights from organizational psychology.
As Frauke puts it: “Sustainable business success starts with a person’s mindset; the way someone thinks about themselves in their company: How they relate to their work-teams, dedicate themselves to producing quality products and offering high-quality services, and how they deal with every day challenges. At Centered Leadership Institute we focus on the greatest asset in your company: You and your people. We help you perform your best by leading from the inside out.”
Frauke holds a Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology, is a certified NLP Coach and Trainer, and Language and Behavior Consultant. She currently serves on board of the National Speakers Association, Northern California Chapter.
