Your mindset is the key to success!
Hello, I am Monika!
I am the Managing Director of Sattler Consulting GmbH, a two-time cycling record holder, author, international speaker and success mindset consultant.
With more than 15 years of experience, I work with leaders and teams to develop a success mindset to gain courage, stay motivated, think innovatively, adapt to constant changes, and successfully achieve even seemingly impossible goals. For this I use my self-developed 6P Success Mindset Model.
I have given over 200 keynotes and workshops, including at Deutsche Telekom, SMG Group, AMAG, AXA and SBB.
In the fall of 2022, I rode all 124 Swiss passes in 26 days on my road bike - my second cycling record.
Originally from Germany, I have lived in five countries, studied International Security with a focus on nuclear weapons, worked for the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, spent time in professional cycling, and was a management consultant.

What it takes to make dreams come true
I had my good share on bold and non-standard decisions.
I quit a career-aspiring job at the World Bank to see if I could become a professional cyclist. I failed multiple times to make my passion for cycling to my job. I started to believe that a job you love does not exist. With 30 years, I left my management consulting job and moved with nothing but my bike to the other side of the world.
I had no plan but a one-hotel night stay and a six-week car rental. My mission? To find my purpose in life. And one year later I set a seemingly impossible record.Learn more

Monika Sattler: "Knowing yourself is the most important thing"
The woman has energy without end. Monika Sattler is back from her latest challenge: she cycled all 124 Swiss passes in one month. She talks to Anita Richner about her motivation, personal crises and the importance of courage. At the age of 30, Monika Sattler was at a low point. She had two master's degrees from renowned American universities under her belt and had gained career experience at the IMF, the World Bank and IBM. But she was not happy. In "Focus," she tells how she radically turned her life around, what role sports played in the process, and why it's so important to pursue your inner passions.
Monika Sattler lives fast.
So quickly, in fact, that she already had a midlife crisis at the age of 30 - that's what she calls the low she was in. What she had achieved by then lasts until retirement for other people: The German, who now lives in Bern, studied security sciences, focusing on nuclear weapons, at Georgetown University in the USA on a sports scholarship in volleyball. She then worked for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank. At 24, she began racing bikes, and a year and a half later she was a professional cyclist for three months...to the article .here
