Founder @ The Mindful Leader | Former CTO, VP Engineering Zalando, Silicon Valley Veteran | MIT TR100 Innovator | Executive Leadership Coach | Tech & Scientific Advisor
As a tech leader, the amount of pressure and information you are asked to absorb and manage can be overwhelming.
Many tech leaders experience an overload of new priorities, information, and deadlines. These reduce productivity and kick off a negative feedback loop: Leadership performance drops, cognitive abilities exhaust, more energy needs to be invested, only to achieve fewer outcomes.
It's evident that tech leaders without proper mind management will fail if not approached proactively at some point in their careers.
This is what happened to me about 10 years ago.
As a director of engineering at Yahoo! In Silicon Valley, I was known for my passion for tech, research, and innovation. I grew as a leader while managing various teams of up to 30 engineers. After some years of success, it became evident that my workload was just not sustainable, my mind wandered off, and my performance dropped. My mind was just unable to cope with the long term pressure.
But I knew I was more than capable of it.
As leaders, we learn how to lead and manage projects. But how do we organize our minds so we can stay calm, focused, and clear?
At first, this question led me to mindfulness and meditation practices. But as an engineer, this was just not measurable enough for me.
That's how I immersed myself really deep into mind-management practices.
I found proof of their effectiveness as I built the Zalando's Search, Personalization, and Research organization with up to 400 FTEs. Most importantly, it felt way less trouble than I had back then with a 30 people organization at Yahoo! The main driver for this had been the mind-management practices I implemented and refined over the years.
After studying various aspects of mind-management, neuroscience, biohacking, epigenetics, mindfulness, as well as neurofeedback for over 10 years, I help tech leaders to avoid failing in their careers because they have no science driven strategy to manage their minds.
My clients know they have the capability to perform in high-pressure tech environments and identified that their mind regularly gets in their way.
They know by just “meditating,” this won't be solved, and “slowing down” is also not an option.
That's why I have developed a data-driven program leveraging the latest science and technology to assist senior tech leaders in optimizing their mind and brain performance to thrive in the high-pressure environments
If you are a tech leader and you have identified aspects of your mind that are blocking you from your personal growth, I am looking forward to getting to know you!

I have had spiritual, fitness, performance, and life coaches and mentors. I am now taking what has been invested in me and I am investing in others.

The coach assists you in developing executable plans to incrementally improve your health, fitness, mindset, career, finances, relationships, and identifying your purpose. The coach helps you with accountability- how to track your performance, make adjustments to plans, and celebrate your life growth and victories.
Hi! I’m Rita Ainsworth, a Human Potential Coach.
My background is in marketing and advertising. I worked in a leading Facebook Ads agency for the past 3 years. First as a media buyer in charge of a million plus in ad spend per month and then managing and coaching people who are responsible for similar ad spend.
While working at the agency I’ve realised that it’s not just media buying and marketing skills that make media buyers successful.
A huge part of the success and being able to earn six figures is due to planning, prioritising, delegating tasks, managing distractions, eliminating limiting beliefs and person’s mindset.
My passion is helping clients with just that, so they can achieve more in a time they have available and feel proud of their achievements.
I help my clients explore their values and strengths so they feel fired up about the work they do. I help them build awareness into everyday life so they aren’t running on autopilot and old habits that don’t serve them anymore. I help with implementation of the plan and accountability.

Growing up in New Zealand, fitness, adventure and the outdoors have always been a huge part of my life. From one spectacularly scenic country to another, I now call the Sunshine Coast of Australia my home.
I've lived and travelled in many countries and through these experiences, I have learned so much about people, culture and what's important to humankind. I have a multi-dimensional view of human potential and human thriving. I bring all of these curiosities and learnings into my coaching.
I am the most outstanding coach my clients will ever meet. To honour this I continue to invest a massive amount of time and money to discover and understand as much as I can about personal and professional development.
I have a gift to find the hidden potential within my clients and to help them achieve deep fulfilment and incredible results in all areas of their life. My powerful combination of compassion and tenacity serves my clients in a profound way. I create a safe space for clients to drop in, many layers deeper than they ever thought possible.
And I'm tough. I won't let my clients get away with anything. I'll say the things that nobody will ever say and I'll take them to their edges, pushing them so that they can truly soar.
I am an ICF-certified coach (ACC), Certified Human Potential Coach, Advanced Rapid Transformational Therapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist.
I specialise in coaching clients who live life in the fast lane and are looking to hit the brakes before it gets too late. I've noticed that with many of my clients they have become sucked into the routine of daily life, and they feel blocked, stuck or lacking direction. They are letting their lives take control of them and the years are flying by.
I use a values-based approach to help my clients 'Keep It Real' by reconnecting to what really matters most to them so that they can create a life that brings them joy, balance, happiness, and purpose. It inspires and energises me when I see my clients making positive changes and getting measurable results from my coaching process.
My personal strengths are my patience and high levels of enthusiasm, both of which I bring to my coaching sessions to offer you a safe space where you will be listened to without judgment so that we can work together towards crushing all of your goals and reaching your highest potential.
With a background of juggling jobs simultaneously in the food and beverage and music industries for almost 20 years in several cities across the world, I know how hard it can be to perform at your best when you work late nights, weekends, and long hours in fast-paced, stressful environments while getting very little rest.
Throughout my training, at the Human Potential Institute, I trained as a life coach, health coach, performance coach, and personal development coach, so I am armed with tools and resources to help partner up with you and get you kicking ass in no time.
Feel free to email me if you require any further information or you would like to get started with a free discovery session.
I am a wellness coach, and I show men and women how to look and feel fabulous now, so they can perform better than ever.
Sometimes all it takes is the smallest step in the right direction that ends up being the biggest step of your life. Why not invest in YOU!!
Do you know someone who needs that helping hand to get them started on an amazing journey.

It doesn’t matter what has happened in your life, the only thing that holds you back is you.
My speciality is helping you let go of what’s holding you back, unlock your potential and step your game up across any or all areas of your life.
