I have all types of clients from all kinds of professions and this makes it very rich and interesting for me.
In my previous life I have been an entrepreneur with a company specialised in the organisation of international scientific conferences and meetings. This means I have experience with this sector. Having been a business owner for 20 years now, I'm also well placed to coach people who envisage to start their own business or work for themselves.
Clients tell me I have soft power, I'm a warm, honest and open, combined with an edge of seriousness when needed and absolute determination and focus. I'm often complimented for my energy and commitment. See the section 'praise' on my website for testimonials http://momentum-coaching.eu/en/praise/
I have a blog/newsletter which appears every 2 weeks on Thursday. It can be found on my website under 'Inspiration'
My particular interest is in providing career and leadership coaching to introverts and "quiet" people who often find it difficult to be seen and heard in corporate environments. I have a corporate communications background, so I really enjoy supporting my clients to find their authentic voice, to develop their personal brand and to communicate with impact and confidence. I often work with people in the high-tech industries - that's also part of my background.
My clients tell me my coaching style is exhilarating, motivating and supportive! They get fired up and inspired as a consequence. When appropriate, I like to bring energy to a session and to support my clients in moving forward and taking action in their careers and in their communication styles. As a CTI co-active coach, however, I also like to be "in the moment" with my clients when required.
With 15 years experience within international matrix structured organisations and 9 years based out of Dubai, I am passionate about the art, science and psychology that underpins my professional background and I believe that when companies and individuals act in alignment with their unique strengths, passion and purpose they unleash incredible creativity, innovation and potential that produces inspirational leaders and market leading companies. I enjoy supporting executives in achieving their boldest goals both inside and outside of the workplace.
I am available to coach individuals looking to clarify the next step in their professional or personal path. I specialise in
- Cultural issues -- expats, multiculturals, international careers
- Healthy living -- well-being, issues of balance and stress
I have more than 20 years of experience in executive coaching working with companies from different industries and with management staff of all hierarchies and functions.
I specialise in:
- change & transformation
- transition coaching
- leadership performance
- career coaching
My approach is action-oriented and pragmatic. Its fundament of eclectic ”practice theory” has proven effective and is derived from many years of intensive studies of concepts of management, organization and leadership development. My clients cherish my strategic and conceptual expertise combined with a fine sense for human beings. Coaching for me is guided reflection leading to concrete steps of action.
