Why I do what I do
I am an enabler and a supporter, but also a challenger. I see coaching as a thought-provoking developmental process. I work in a highly co-creative way, helping my clients access deeper ways of thinking.
I’m always supportive but I often play devil’s advocate, challenging their world-view. I encourage them to push themselves and they often surprise themselves. I enable them to do what they’ve never done before and to discover new things about themselves.
There are many obstacles in the path of people in business as there are in the way of everyone in life. I help clients learn, grow and overcome barriers and more: to unfold and emerge more fully realised.
I have a fundamental belief that every human being is much greater than he/she seems to be. I also believe that we are hardwired for change and growth even if change feels awkward and difficult. But we can change. Our desire is to evolve and when we notice our progress, we feel enriched by what we have learned about ourselves.
This gives us new optimism, new beliefs about the world and human beings plus new resources and capabilities. If I didn’t believe so strongly in these human capabilities and fundamental desires I wouldn’t do what I do.
Training and coaching is in my blood. It comes naturally to me to support, challenge and look ahead. I care about my clients’ happiness as much as I do about their personal effectiveness and how well the organisation is doing.
My outlook is holistic. I don’t subscribe to the shareholder philosophy, I believe in making the whole system work for everybody.

Why I do what I do
My experience in diverse managerial positions within international companies allows me to swiftly grasp a client’s context whether it’s change management, multicultural and virtual team efficiency, remote management, leadership development or another business issue.
I take a practical, experiential and co-creative approach. After exploring “why” we look at “what”, “how” and ”when”. Coaching is all about making it happen and enjoying it happening in real life and real business situations.
I believe in human potential, courage, creativity and engagement. In my coaching interaction I see myself as a partner who firmly holds this belief. At the same time as I support and care for my partners I challenge them; but always in a respectful and trustworthy way.
Learning for me is a purposeful, continuous adventure. A training or coaching session has to be useful, practical and playful. Adults learn a lot through experimentation and reflection. All of that makes learning brings the process alive and makes it enjoyable even when people go out of their comfort zone.
