Find balance and flow—

I was born Turkish, raised in Germany, then settled in New York in 2016.
I’m an Executive at a Fortune 500 Company leading a business division.
I believe that my multi-immigrant background is the cause of my ability to adapt quickly to challenges and desire for continuous growth.
I’m deeply curious about the human mind and potential. 

As a minimalist, I enjoy taking a simplified approach to leadership, relationships and life; focusing my energy on what matters most. 

And oh by the way, my name is pronounced too-bah (everyone gets this wrong).

I love to surf,
even though
I’m really not
good at it...

I love to surf, even though I’m really not good at it...

Professional surfers would call me a kook, which is a phrase for someone who’s more of a distraction than an actual surfer. Still, I keep trying. It helps me to maintain a beginners mindset, reminding me of the power of routines and exercise. It forces me to stay present, enjoy the process over the end result. I love being one with nature and am truly mesmerized by ocean waves. Waves taught me to stop picking up fights literally in the ocean and figuratively in my leadership journey... And consequently, I learned the deep satisfaction of a flow state, better and more lightly than ever.

The hidden treasures inside you are hoping you will say yes.  

Do you have the courage to become a rising tide?

I’ve been leading for the majority of my career. I enjoy building resilient, high-performing teams and challenging Leaders to discover their hidden treasures. Empowering them to hold the paradox of being tough minded on performance and standards and tender hearted with their people and relationships. My source of energy comes from the magical breakthrough moments every time I help a leader to claim its unique vision and I am inspired by the powerful force they access to create a worthy legacy.
