"Behind the comfort zone lies a universe of opportunities!

It is yours to conquer and yours to explore!
Sonja Piontek


Sonja walks the talk. The charismatic leader has proven what it takes to be(come) successful but also what can be done when things don't go to plan.

After successfully pulling herself out of a deep valley of tears, Sonja developed the PHOENIX MINDSET - a powerful program that has helped people from all nations and backgrounds to unleash their inner phoenix and fly higher and happier than ever before. 

The PHOENIX MINDSET program is customised to you and your needs. From 1:1 coaching to executive management sessions, from corporate PHOENIX EXPERIENCES to meaningful MENTORING JOURNEYS in Mongolia - the form is different, yet the objective is the same: to unleash your true excellence and help you soar to new heights.


Why? Simply because you deserve to be as happy and successful as you possibly can! Don't you agree?!
