Whether you’re an experienced executive or in the earlier stages of your career and personal development, we offer high-impact programmes and masterminds to help you successfully navigate your career and leadership journey across a range of fast-paced and male dominated SaaS, Tech, Sales, and Corporate environments.



Do you feel ready to embark on this transformational journey? Yes?
Then we can't wait to hear from you!

Our goal is to help you successfully navigate your career progression and leadership journey

Our unique 360° approach puts as much focus on your personal growth, as it does on your career progression, leadership development and the growth of the business.

So you can scale up your career with confidence, in alignment with your personal goals and with the business needs in mind.

For Established Leaders

Leadership Circle


As an experienced leader or executive, you pour so much into the operational aspect of your role — chasing goals and meeting budgets.

But, what about you? 

Investing in your leadership capability and your own personal development is the best gift that you can give yourself and your business. 

Leadership Circle is a 4-month transformational development development programme with no pressure to “perform” in a non-judgemental environment or reach pre-determined milestones. 

Instead, with the support and accountability of our team, as well as an exclusive circle of like-minded leaders, you’re empowered to scale your leadership skills to the next level in alignment with your personal and business goals.

What's Holding You Back Right Now?

Does this sound familiar?

🀫Asking for support could be perceived as a weakness… after all, shouldn’t I have everything worked out already in the position I am in?”

πŸ™…πŸ»‍♀️ “When it comes to my job and career development, I don’t need help - I can work this out myself…”

πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️ “It is more important to focus on the business needs or on my team or stakeholders right now instead of investing in myself and my career development.”

When you work in a fast-paced, competitive environment, it’s not always easy to navigate your career and juggle all the different hats you are wearing by yourself.

It can sometimes be challenging to navigate your career as a woman in a male-dominated environment that was created with often still classical male values in mind.

A fact that our founder Katrin can really relate to as she has been in your shoes before when successfully climbing the corporate leader for almost 10 years.

We know that those internal struggles of doubting yourself can be real. You might play it small or have the feeling that you are not fully reaching your potential at the moment.

The fact is, it’s normal to feel uncomfortable, to feel pushed beyond your comfort zone and existing skill set in an effort to perform. And maybe you are holding yourself back? 

But in the end, the truth is that you don’t know what you don’t know. 

And what got you here, might not get you there in the end.

But, you are not alone. 

At Scale & Shine, we use our extensive experience in the high-growth SaaS and tech industries to support and connect driven professionals and leaders like you.

Our mission is to help you navigate and scale up your career, without the grind and pressure traditionally associated with high-growth industries. 

We show how to lead and perform in an impact and value-driven way, so that you, your teams, and the business can shine.  

When you work with us you won’t find judgement or performance pressure - just practical, hands-on guidance and training that empowers you to exceed the professional goals you have worked towards or dreamed of in a safe and supportive environment.

That’s why we’re not a classical coaching, consulting or online training company. 

We don’t simply ask questions - instead, we use our industry knowledge, vast network and experience to provide educational guidance tied to your role and/ or your business - with tangible feedback on your approach and progress. 

So, our training, education and mastermind programmes are often covered by your internal training budget, Employee Assistance Plans, or Education Reimbursement Programmes. 

We’d be happy to speak with you to help you secure the budget you need to take your professional development to the next level if we are the right fit.
