You are the leader of your life!

Become a self-leader to thrive in life and business.

Berna Merih, ACC

I am a Transformational Leadership Coach who is passionate about inspiring and empowering people to transform into self-leaders who thrive in life and business. I am a strong believer that everyone is the leader of their own life. When people act at their full potential as self-leaders, they become inspiring leaders in their personal, business, or professional life. 

As a compassionate and resourceful coach passionate about partnering with people in their transitions and transformations, I value coaching as a powerful tool to support people in finding the treasure they seek. I am a supportive and insightful finance executive with a history of developing high-performing individuals, building and leading finance teams.

In 2017, I experienced a pivotal time in my life, a profound transition opening the doors of a transformational process. The transition transformed me into an empowered self-leader and an entrepreneur with a passion and purpose to make an impact in life. 


"Mastering others is strength,

 mastering yourself 

is true power.” 


Lao Tzu 

"If your actions inspire others

 to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more,

 you are a leader." 


John Quincy Adams

Berna’s strength in coaching, which worked for me, was her soothing but direct and kind of fearless way of asking questions, one upon another, which probed into a deeper part of my psyche as I processed through the changes I needed to make in my life and overcome the fears to make them.

Berna made me speak the unspoken reason behind every difficulty. Berna's coaching evoked the healing power of my inner effort to find the flow in life, enjoy every moment of my personal and professional journey, and transform to be the best version of myself.

Berna partnered me in redefining myself in different ways and building my vision as the leader of a science team, becoming the connector who is caring and providing people with the value and the opportunity to learn. Berna’s openness to learn about her coachee and adapt to her coachee’s needs are her greatest strengths as a coach.
