Johanna Herbst

Executive & Career Coach | Podcaster | Motivational Speaker | Leadership Trainer 

In my professional life, I wear different hats and follow a so-called portfolio career. I am an executive & career coach, a motivational speaker, a leadership trainer, and a podcast host working for my company Delygate. One thing that all my endeavors have in common is that they allow me to live in my purpose: making things happen with lots of energy, compassion, and a smile.

In my work as an executive & career coach, I work with top management, senior leaders, and experts. Typically, we start off our coaching relationship by identifying my client's core values and purpose. I truly believe that purpose and core values need to be honored to build healthy and fulfilling careers. Does that equal maximizing the paycheck? No. But my experience taught me that fulfilled people are oftentimes financially better off. Why? Doing something that has meaning results in increased engagement and more willingness to go the extra mile resulting in above-average results.

I graduated with an MBA from NYU Stern School of Business and specialized both in finance and marketing. I did the MBA in the part-time program and worked full-time at Siemens at the time. I also participated in a study-abroad program and studied the last semester (full time, for once!) at HEC Paris.

I am also a certified coach (CPCC) and am accredited with the International Coaching Federation (ICF). 

Professional Background

As the founder and executive & career coach at Delygate, I help top management, senior leaders, and other key players across industries tap into their full potential and get on a path towards success. With 15+ years of international experience in coaching, management consulting, entrepreneurship, and corporate finance, I have the expertise and skills to support my clients in achieving their professional and personal goals.

I also host the “Reaching your Goals” podcast, where I interview inspiring individuals on various career and business topics. In addition, I offer leadership and personal growth training programs to my corporate clients. 


My mission is to move organizations and individuals forward by creating the conditions for confidence, focus, and fulfillment.


Whether you are looking for executive coaching, career coaching, or leadership training, I am here to help you make things happen with lots of energy, compassion, and a smile.
