Monique Lindner, aka The Time Alchemist, was born in former East Germany with two chronic health challenges, yet she started to work by age 13. This potent mixture led to her dying of a cardiac arrest by age 19 & being clinically dead for 25 seconds.

Monique is an adventurous spirit on the autism spectrum who’s mission it is to dismantle systems that keep holding us back and instead, create structures that bring freedom, that crush glass ceilings, and that empower us to live full force. 

Monique is the creator of The T.I.M.E. Method® and published her book under the same name in the first lockdown of 2020 – putting her own signature framework to the test. 

She’s been featured in several top magazines such as Forbes, spoke at TedX and was interviewed on a range of diverse podcasts to share her wisdom and knowledge around Time & how we can Slow Down to Speed up.

Why dying – saved my life. 

I died: of a cardiac arrest by age 19.
Why? Because I overworked, stayed in toxic environments for way too long, didn’t listen to my body, didn’t sleep, and didn’t have any boundaries nor values (even though my 19-year old would try to tell you differently). 

On one faithful day in 2006, my heart stopped beating. I left my body & was clinically dead
– For about 25 seconds

(as my doctor declared the next day). 

Although I have leaned a lot along the way, I don’t wish this type of experience on anybody.
That is the reason why  I do what I do. Time Alchemy.
My mission is to bring mindful working as a culture into society, create sustainable remote team cultures &  design personal lifestyles that fulfil dreams.

It’s my passion & my responsibility to share as much of my wisdom, knowledge and skills with the world so we can achieve this mission and make the world a more mindful, peaceful & joyful place.
That’s why I love being invited to interviews, podcasts and speaking on stages. I have many topics I love speaking on and I am easy to adapt to any questions that come up. I’d love to share a few topics that come up a lot with you, that may be interesting for you and you audience, too: 

Important Topics I speak on:

  1. Remote Teams:
    How to create a high performing, yet mindful remote team culture your people will thrive in
  2. (Team) Performance:
    How you are sabotaging your & your teams productivity and what to do instead
  3. A new era of work-life integration:
    What shifts we need to make in our work & life to adapt to the ‘new normal’
  4. Dying saved my life:
    Lessons learned after dying of a cardiac arrest, being clinically dead for 25 seconds &
    what the out-of-body experience taught me
  5. Slow down to Speed up:
    Why we need to learn to do less so we can get more done – and how to do so!

Public speaking and sharing my knowledge is my passion. whether it is a huge conference or a podcast, I am in!

I am here to share all about Time Alchemy, how to bring it into your life and business, and unfold the magic that this new way of being brings into our world. I speak about the importance of slowing down to speed up, about the journey through burnout and back, how a clinical death feels like and what lessons I learned from it , traveling solo across the world for years – and much more.

“Every piece of advice I’ve received has been right on the money”

Running your own business isn’t easy. There are always a bazillion things trying to stop you from being successful (like, hiring risks… productivity killers… and at times, your own headspace.)

When I face one of these, I bring them to Monique. I’m yet to ever have her “stumped”.

She’s regarded as the best high-performance coach for good reason. Every piece of advice I’ve received has been right on the money…

so yeah, I recommend getting as close to Monique as you can.

“She has a way of really seeing deep into you as a human being”

I went into the big move session for help with clarity on vision goals and to get in what I do as a marketing coach to the next level because whether we realize it or not, we all have limits and ceilings and walls that close in.

… And Monique is truly gifted in how she does that. She has a way of really seeing deep into you as a human being and just calling you out on what’s actually holding you back.

I was bombarded with so much value in the session. It was it was Outstanding, outstanding.
