For many people, getting to the corporate world is their final destination. They want nothing more than to work for a large business, make money, and do nothing else. For Heinz Kaegi, however, he had this dream and let it go to do something different.
Heinz had decades of experience in the business world. Unfortunately for him, this didn’t lead to the successful feeling that he wanted in life. He decided that he needed to spread his wings and move onto something bigger.
“I jumped off the cliff trusting that the wings would be delivered in time and they did. Less than 2 years later, I led my own leadership workshops in Florida. My audiences would praise my inspiring spirit and the very practical models geared for instant implementation. And my Swissness had been very well received by my American customers, and this aspect was beneficial to successfully build our business in America,” Heinz recounts.
Heinz is now the leader of Kaegi Leadership Ltd, which grew out of his emPowerment Group Ltd.. He wanted to connect with people rather than businesses and wanted to change their lives for the better, so he and a couple of other leaders made the group!
“In this time, as the founder of emPowerment Group Ltd. I built this international company with activities in the same sector as before. Now with an even stronger portfolio with the worldwide unique LEX Leadershift Excellence™ Program I had designed for executives to moving from hard work to heart work. ®”
It was in the year 2016 when Kaegi-Leadershift Ltd. emerged from the emPowerment Group. The international team of mentors and coaches inspires, develops and shapes the future, together with visionary executives and for companies, to reach groundbreaking emPowerment, leading from that future and performing a sustainable impact for an economy of heart,” Heinz remarks.
The universe almost seemed to want Heinz to become a trainer and coach. First, he attended a leadership conference early on in his career. He was an expert in all of the classes and quickly mastered leadership skills himself. Then, another chance encounter also encouraged him to become a coach.
“When I started as a sole entrepreneur, another remarkable coincidence happened. At an internal business meeting when I was the director and member of the board, I did a longer presentation and coached the group process thereafter. At the end of it, Lisa, my assistant, approached me and said “Mr. Kaegi, this was ever so inspiring! Should you at some point in the future intend to change your career and do something else – I strongly recommend you design and conduct workshops and give speeches!” And again, years later Lisa’s prophecy would manifest. The magic and the providence are a unique pair in the Universe, responding to our willingness to listen and to mindfully follow our intuition,” Heinz explains.
Heinz does what he loves and loves what he does now because it allows for these intimate settings that give
s him the chance to connect with all of the amazing people that he encounters in his life and through his masterclasses & mentoring programs. He calls these people a scarce race of humans that have a special knack for leadershift and he is grateful for the work he is able to do with and for them.
“I love it very much as well to work in intimate group settings with the scarce race of personalities and true leaders who have their commitment from within the heart to grow beyond thus producing sustainable success and fulfillment that adds life value for all involved,”
Heinz is not slowing down now! He has big projects planned for the future as he continues to grow his businesses and his business portfolio.
“In 2020, the world of work has changed forever. The lifetime of managers is over. It is now time to grow beyond. In this context, I have created a concept to answer this wake-up call. As the initiator of this visionary idea, I am in preparation together with my core international team to form the ‘International Economy of Heart Foundation’” Heinz comments.
