I’m a certified coach and organisational psychologist with over 25 years of experience in (executive) coaching, soft skills training and facilitating organisational change.
My international corporate experience entails product development in a cross-cultural team based in Switzerland, delivery of leadership development courses in Hong Kong and Shanghai in addition to train-the-trainer courses in both China and Switzerland. Global Fortune 500 companies (e.g. IBM, FedEx, Royal Philips) are among my clients, as are government agencies, IT firms and NGOs.
In my experience, clients have the capacity to make meaningful and rewarding changes to their (work) lives, often in a relatively short time frame. Stressing individual strengths and encouraging them to be inspired by their own answers and solutions, allows for radical or subtle shifts in the way people think, feel and act. Depending upon clients´ needs, I might offer guidance and inspiration through references in literature, lectures or self-assessment tools.
My coaching location is near Amsterdam Central Station. My special expertise is coaching expats. Raised in the Netherlands by parents of different nationalities and backgrounds, I developed a heightened sensitivity to cultural differences from an early age. My curiosity in the cultural roots of my clients proves to be very beneficial in our coaching.
Clients state their outcome typically along these lines:
“I have a clearer sense of what really matters to me. This helped me to make up my mind about my career direction.”
“I have more impact in meetings.”
“I am more relaxed and self-confident when giving presentations.”
“Now that I have a solid plan as to finding a job that appeals to me, I feel energized and more self-assured.”
“Gaining self-knowledge has helped me a lot in improving relationships at the office and with my partner at home.”
“I got a job offer!” (after preparing a job interview together)
Clients approach me for a wide range of coaching goals, e.g.
- Career coaching: identification of the next career step, resolution of dilemma.
- Video training to improve specific communication skills e.g. presentation skills, influencing skills, preparing for a job interview, etc.
- Improving political savvy; learning to navigate the political corporate landscape.
- Work-life balance, stress management, conflict resolution.
- Enrolling in a leadership position.
- Expressing oneself with self-confidence in challenging situations.
