Meet Sven Gade

Sven Gade

My name is Sven Gade and I have been a leader in the corporate world of logistics for more than 25 years, mainly at DHL. I have experience leading small sales teams and big operational entities. I have driven organizational change and guided diverse teams spread across the globe. I lived through many triumphs and some tragedies. These experiences taught me great lessons such as how to inspire, 

how to connect and how to empower people; and consequently, how to deliver results. Looking back, I felt to be at my best when I could bring together people and make with them extraordinary things happen, in the complexity of the corporate world as well as the dynamic environment of start-ups. Following my passion, I started my coaching firm to positively influence the development of other leaders and their teams.

Those that worked with me have acknowledged me as a reliable partner and an approachable authority in the field of leadership and teamwork.

I bring realistic optimism, persistence, and empathy to every coaching engagement. I guide my clients to new insights on how to think, feel, and act differently and to unlock their potential. It is exciting to see them developing the mindset and the behaviors that let them successfully achieve their most ambitious goals, as an executive or as a team.

My practice is built on solid ground. I earned the designation of Professional Certified Coach (PCC) from the International Coach Federation (ICF) and Certified Team Performance Coach™ (CTPC) from Team Coaching International (TCI). Additionally, I am a certified practitioner of the Emotional Intelligence assessment by Genos, an Australian research company.

Physical exercises are an important part of my life. I frequently swim, cycle, run outdoors, and occasionally participate in triathlon races. Every year, a friend and I go on an extensive, 5-day-long bicycle tour to explore foreign territories. Cumulatively, we have biked 7,775 miles and more importantly, collected unforgettable memories from 19 countries. 

The commonalities between business and sport led me to name my company LeaderTrip Coaching. I’ve had the opportunity to work and live in many different places. Today I consider myself being a world citizen. Fort Lauderdale has been home to my wife and me for 15 years. We enjoy the ocean and the close connection with our family and friends.
