Meet Daria Kalista

Daria was drawn to LifeHikes because helping to unleash someone’s true potential gave her the feeling of the highest level of accomplishment. Empathy is a core value in this process, and she knows how to provide a psychologically safe environment for every team and professional she works with.  With over 15 years of experience in Sales, Events and Operations, Daria has worn many hats! Working across 6 different countries and a diverse range of company cultures sparked her curiosity about the science behind team performance.    

Whilst heading operations for one of Singapore’s top tech startups, Daria decided to scratch her own itch and launched a team coaching and alignment consultancy – FridayMakers. Her diverse background has fueled her passion for shaping dynamic teams that can thrive in this hybrid age. As a certified Team Coach, Agilist and Facilitator, she now helps globally distributed organizations in the tech, telecom, pharma, finance and healthcare industries. Her mission is to transform any team into a cohesive, high-performing super-squad.    

Based between Singapore and Barcelona, Daria is a self-described adrenaline junkie. When she is not working, she is probably seeking a heart-racing adventure in some remote part of the world. Oh, and did we mention that she used to star in an Irish sitcom!
