The Team

Chief Executive Officer – Dr. Barbara Schwarck, PCC

Barbara Schwarck, CEO of Clear Intentions International (CII), has been coaching since she was 12 years old, when she coached her older brother on how to handle his money. Immigrating to the United States from Germany at the age of 23 with nothing but a backpack to her name, she has honed a rare set of skills, enabling her to deliver powerful keynotes to a variety of people interested in clarifying, identifying and achieving goals. As an executive coach, Barbara inspires and enables her clients and audiences to achieve rapid and lasting success with a focus on bottom-line results. She does so using her innovative technique – Neuro Emotional Coaching®. Combining neuroscience with executive coaching, this process helps clients break through barriers and align their intentions at every level of themselves, in support of their aspirations. Aligning the mind, body, and soul spurs breakthroughs in the ways that people think, feel, and behave, thus opening up the space and opportunity for rapid and sustainable change, leadership development, and goal attainment.

Barbara is also a published author (From Intuition to Entrepreneurship), a renowned and frequent lecturer at conferences and seminars, and has appeared on national and local television and radio stations.
