Gisela Klöss established ProEtiCo LLC - Protocol & Etiquette Consulting to help others learn the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed locally and globally. Gisela conducts seminars in the areas of business etiquette, fine dining, cross cultural awareness, and networking skills.
As a bi-continental resident (Germany, USA), Gisela has learned that the keys to a thriving business are an appearance that reflects one’s aspirations, an understanding of one’s own personality traits and cultural influence(s), minimizing Self-Sabotaging and Self-Deflating actions, and proficiency in a wide array of various communication styles.
Gisela conducts interactive workshops for companies and organizations interested in ensuring that every member exudes the highest level of professionalism and intercultural awareness. She assists teams with developing a culture that prevents conflict and fosters growth and individual appreciation. She also works with young professionals to get them ready for college or their careers. In addition, Gisela enjoys helping individuals create their unique Executive Branding and Leadership Presence.
“Oftentimes, we don’t know what we don’t know, so how can one strive to improve if one doesn’t know there is something missing? When teaching any class, I strive to not merely inspire but to evoke thoughts and understanding. A mind that understands and a heart that feels will guide with awareness, mindfulness, and confidence. My goal for any workshop is to provide practical knowledge that can be implemented immediately while simultaneously providing clients with an awareness of their full potential.
We were born not to merely survive – but to thrive!” -Gisela
