I’m Iva Buschmann
An enthusiastic and driven coach, consultant, and change agent.
I care about you
Wherever you are in your journey,
I’ve got your back
Coaching is not a title. It is a tool. Coaching helps extraordinary people like you to keep their promises to themselves and reach “impossible goals”. My job is to help you process decisions and remove roadblocks to confidently achieve those goals.
I am the expert individuals or companies call on to elevate their connections, conversations and cultures. I am known for the mastery in teaching the tools and approaches that leaders can quickly apply to establish trust, listen more deeply, and evoke awareness and new actions in others.
You are powerful.
You are passionate.
And you have a track record of success.
Yet, you crave something more…
You are in the right place
Transitioning from who you are today into the best version of yourself takes courage, focus and intentional change.
Do you have it?
Who is Coaching For?
The single biggest challenge you face as an executive → high-achiever is that your game is so much bigger than that of anyone around you.
Most people cannot even see how much you are holding back from what is possible.
Nine qualities of executives → high-achievers that propel them forward and also hold them back the most—at the very same time (created by Rich Litvin)
Your gifts, in fact, become your challenges →
1. You are a powerful visionary.
When so many options are available to you, the paradox of choice can mean it’s hard to begin each new project.
2. You experience exponential success.
It is easy to misinterpret the nature of rapid attainment, so you can feel like you are hiding a “dirty little secret”. Many of the highest-achieving people on the planet judge themselves for being ‘lazy’.
3. You have deep, competing commitments that begin to surface the more successful you become.
4. You get comfortable in the Gray Zone.
A pace like this can feel like a tough workout. But running in this zone, run after run, will actually lead to a decline in performance.
The danger for a high performer is that your Gray Zone creates so much more than the average person that there is a temptation to continually underperform without even realizing that you’re doing so.
5. You are an extremely talented problem-solver.
6. You seek perfection.
7. You are future-focused.
8. You don't need help.
9. You miss out on hearing the “truth”.
I am often the only person in my client's world who is not here to please them.
I will tell you how it is.
Your two questions now are:
DOES SHE GET ME?
CAN SHE HELP ME?
I started my coaching career as a natural transition after leaving the management role in a law firm. I draw on my coaching education (Certified coach by International Coaching Federation) and my life and work experience in a variety of sectors. I worked and lived 23+ year outside of my passport country, the Czech Republic.
My challenges were often bigger than me and my experiences from Nigeria, USA, Germany, Japan, Australia, Malaysia and China taught me to pause, observe and then react. I see things that others don’t, and I say things that others don’t dare to say.
I will help you to grow in ways your never thought was possible.
Becoming coached by Iva was a life changing event for me, and by all means the best investment I ever made. I recommend Iva to everyone who is serious about their own life and career.
If you are ready to commit your time, your focus, and your efforts – Iva will always commit twice as much as you did, and you will soon understand how much of your potential has been waiting to be awakened.
And in particular you will be surprised how much progress you make in the fields you thought you had already mastered. This is how world class coaching works so if you want to identify your goals and start achieving them I recommend you start working with Iva.
What my clients have to say…
“Working with Iva was a catalyst for clarity, confident choices and for pursuing very ambitious goals. Her ability to challenge you to tap into “the best in you” is phenomenal.”

“Coaching? I was pretty unsure about coaching before I started. The cost, the time, the real results? Iva has been working with me and the executive board for the past 3 years on regular basis. Iva is a master of helping you see the solutions. I focus exclusively on the results which is why I have stayed loyal to her. Iva doesn’t buy into anyones’ story and will challenge you to be your best.
I recommend her as a coach to anyone.”
CEO of a leading international technology group based in Germany
“Working with Iva was literally an eye-opening experience. Her approach to seeing things from a different perspective and using persistently focused questions helped me to develop a completely new perspective. I was able to tackle my challenge in a new way, which ultimately proved to be very successful.”
