About Salted Minds

Salted Minds is an innovative coaching and consulting partner headquartered in Munich (GER) and Ericeira (PT), specializing in immersive business retreats, co-creative workshops, individual coaching, and transformative organizational development. Ana, the visionary head behind Salted Minds, leverages her expertise in design thinking, systemic coaching, and positive psychology while infusing the surfer's mindset into her approach. The result is a harmonious blend of co-creative experiences with long-lasting impact, and meaningful transformations for teams and individuals.

Hi, I’m Ana.

In 2021, I discovered surfing in Ericeira and it quickly became a transformative and captivating sport for me. Beyond being a physical activity, surfing feels like therapy, prompting deep introspection, pushing boundaries, and sparking immense joy.

Through my surfing experiences, I've learned the power of mindset — it can chain us to limitations or liberate us into a realm of limitless possibilities. Every time I go surfing and ride waves, it leaves me with a salted mind, brimming with profound insights, ready to face life's challenges.

Yet, my passion extends far beyond surfing. Working with people is my true calling, and I find immense fulfillment in inspiring individuals to break free from their comfort zones and explore the uncharted waters of new ideas. Whether it's guiding individuals or empowering teams, witnessing those magical aha moments and sparking positive change confirms that I've chosen the right path.

As a dvct-certified systemic Business Coach, a certified Scrum Master, and a trained Team Coach, I bring a wealth of expertise to the table. My journey includes a Master's in Organizational Psychology and over a decade of experience in People Development across both corporate companies and startups. For 4.5 years, I proudly led owl:mate, a consultancy that transformed companies through Organizational Development.

Now, with Salted Minds, a new vision comes to life as I unite my passion for surfing and People Development to create a ripple effect of positive change in the world. Join me! Together we’ll make waves of inspiration, growth, and impact.
