Coaching approach

As a business coach, my approach is to work collaboratively with clients to develop self-awareness, so enhancing personal and team performance and helping to create personal and organisational transformation. My coaching style enables organisations to unlock the creative potential within their teams to allow them to address more effectively the challenges businesses are facing today. My experience in Executive Coaching and Leadership Development facilitates my clients in reaching and executing their professional goals generating fast and sustainable success. On a more individual level, I am researching and coaching in the area of change mangement, with regard to professional change (redundancy, transition etc.) and personal change (retirement, divorce etc.).
