Gema de la Rosa

As a former client of Maybe International, Gema so believed in the power and impact of our work that she joined the Maybe team in 2005 and has been an invaluable leader within the Company ever since. In addition to leading on a diverse range of client coaching assignments and projects, Gema is also our in-house Enneagram specialist and is chief champion of Maybe’s L.I.O.N Leadership University, our online learning platform.

Gema passionately believes in people, taking risks and in trusting her instincts and life itself. She is an avid learner, full of curiosity and always tries to walk her talk as best she can – even when it’s difficult to do. We like to call that Managing to be Human!

Prior to joining Maybe International and with a background as a trained chemist, Gema worked for over 15 years with leading FMCG companies such as SC Johnson Wax and ColepCCL, holding key management positions in Operations, R&D, Quality Assurance and as Quality Management Director. This rich operational background along with her diverse coaching and consultancy experience enables her to bring a depth of clarity, practicality and possibilities thinking to her current work.

Today Gema works primarily in the areas of Creativity & Innovation, Leadership, Coaching with the Enneagram, Personal and Professional Development, Team Development and Culture Change.

In her free time, of which she has little coming from a big, loving and very social Spanish familia, Gema likes to dance, listen to music, try out and inflict the latest productivity app on both herself and others and attend endless learning courses (which to her are the equivalent of holidays!!) She has more accreditations than we can list here.



We in Maybe International can confidently say that all participants in our programmes on Leadership will gain many new and exciting insights into how managing in a more human way will enable them to achieve new levels of performance both in themselves and in their people, performance that will deliver ever better business results.

Working with Maybe International is a unique experience. Our whole leadership philosophy and approach has been developed with the central focus of bringing out the greatness in people  - unlocking the enormous potential that is waiting to be realised in each person. We know that nurturing this inner potential in a creative and honest manner will ensure they achieve more than they imagine is possible and empower them to do real justice to themselves and their organisations.

We believe that this level of improvement will be achieved by managing and leading with integrity and effectiveness and it is this belief, and fidelity to it, that enables managers to lead their organisations so successfully.
