Nice to meet you here. Coaching and mentoring, developing people and teams, has always been my sweet spot. I have now worked internationally for 30+ years as an executive in operations, learning & development, portfolio & program management and change & transformation management. In gthese years, I always tried to learn from the people around me as well as supporting them to grow.
I have always been a facilitator, a mentor and a coach. I was 26 when I graduated as a teacher in electro-engineering. Since then, I have worked in the profit sector for 8 different companies and many different functions. I was lucky to work with many great leaders and people during the last 35 years. Indeed, I was also being mentored and coached by great people, helping me to develop myself in a wide range of capabilities. I am for always grateful for being able to tap into an indispensable wellspring of advice from many leaders I have worked with. I try to transfer this learning as well when appropriate.
Having also worked with various executive coaches and leadership experts, I have learned coaches are able to deliver a revolutionary collection of contributions from our experience and our ability to create learning & breakthroughs. This always leads to personal transformations in areas like: leadership, self-awareness, self-confidence, communication, interpersonal relationships, emotional intelligence, delegation, coaching, strategy, business development, change management, transition management, effective execution, and career development.
In most cases I combine coaching and mentoring, always co-designing the learning process together. I always aim to inspire you, to break through mental barriers and to come to new insights. Sometimes added with additional and practical advice based on my personal experience, just to add another perspective to maybe learn from.
Every coaching journey is unique and completely adapted to your personal requirements. The way we accomplish your breakthroughs will vary, and some happen quickly, other take time.
Obviously, confidentiality is 100% guaranteed.
Some examples of interventions and activities during a coaching journey are:
- Thorough introduction to self-examination and self-awareness, including maximizing the impact of feedback and proven techniques to ensure your leadership measures up.
- Comprehensive explorations of communication and interpersonal relationship skills, including treatments of authenticity and cultural fluency.
- Practical discussions of emotional intelligence, including the management of out-of-control feelings and conflict management.
- In-depth examinations of change and transition management, including explorations of the first 100 days as a new leader and how to lead teams through crises
I love working with managers, executives, and business leaders of all kinds. I often position myself as your personal board of directors: facilitating leadership growth and sometimes delivering advice stemming from reflecting on experiences of the many people I worked with and my own peak performances and failures.
From good to great through coaching; we all need a boost every now and then; a kick or an acknowledgement, straight feedback, challenged on what we believe and sometimes a shoulder.
Happy to be your coach for a while, always willing to meet you free of charge for a proper introduction, including setting an example of how I coach, as well as who I am. This should allow you to feel the click needed to explore a coaching journey together.
