Do you have more skills and capacity, but don’t know how to progress?

How do you handle your staff, colleagues or managers?

What job fits you best?

Would you like to further develop your talents in your work?

Are you wondering how to handle various political, business or personal interests of yourself or those around in your capacity as an executive or administrator?

Then Professional Coaching may be something for you. Whether you are a CEO/CFO, director, manager, professional or employee. You take visible steps in a number of one-on-one coaching sessions. Resulting in profit for you and your immediate work environment. Professional Coaching concerns mainly work-related questions.

Individual Coaching

Each coaching session normally lasts 1.5 hours. This allows us to really go deep and tackle your issues at the core. The number of sessions for the majority of issues is often 3 to 6 (maximum of 8).

But if you like just like to have a follow-up or boost you can ask for just one coaching sessions as well.

The first three coaching sessions follow each other in rapid succession (every week or two weeks), so that you really make progress with what you have been given. After a verbal interim evaluation, we examine whether the desired development has come about. If we continue the process you will act increasingly on the basis of your own strength. The remaining sessions will be every 2, 3 or 4 weeks. Then you always have a back-up to look forward to.

Free intake

You can apply for a one-hour intake interview in which we can find out if I can really help you, free of charge and obligation. We get to know each other to see if we have a rapport. There is ample opportunity to tell your story and explain why you need coaching. I help you to set tangible goals that you can use to monitor your development.

I also explain specifically how I can help you progress using insights, exercises and assignments. This outlines what you can expect from my coaching process.

If we both feel good, we can start on the process. I present a proposal stating your goals. If desired, we also include the input from your manager, HR staff or employer in the goals of the process. In the final coaching session, we evaluate your actual development on the basis of your learning goals and examine how you can continue your positive development independently.

How do I work as a coach?

During the process we work at 3 levels, namely: 1) behaviour and skills, 2) personality/ego and 3) soul/spiritual experiences. Why? Because only working on behaviour and skills will not enable you to deal with your own foundation, which means that old (work) behaviour can reoccur easily.

1. Behaviour & skills

We map out your behaviour and choices using your practical situations and feedback from me, in my capacity as coach, and others. And the effect they have on you and your surroundings. Theoretical models and accompanying hand-outs give you more insight into your behaviour and the alternatives that are much more productive. I can also coach you in communication or management skills that support your learning goals. My extensive experience enables me to help you with practical perspectives and exercises in the fields of coaching, conflict management, negotiations and enhancing your personal profile.

2. Personality/ego

You can mow the grass (‘behaviour’), but if you don’t deal with the roots it will just come back. This is why my coaching increases your awareness of the origin and effect of your personality on your learning goals. I use the Psychology of Selves and Voice Dialogue, a method I was trained in by the founders Hal & Sidra Stone. This leads you to new self-generated choices that fundamentally stimulate and support your development. You are occasionally asked to write a short autobiography to gain even clearer insight into your ego patterns. This then enables you to make new choices in line with who you are.
Soms word je gevraagd een korte en gerichte autobiografie te schrijven om je ego-patronen nog beter in kaart te krijgen. 

3. Soul experiences

Some experiences can touch your soul deeply. For example, failure to achieve the promised promotion, demotion, loss of tasks, authorities or responsibilities, or even losing your job. There may be other personal experiences in your private life that affect your attitude at work. Then it is essential to examine these events carefully and determine how you can handle them differently in future. Sometimes you want more tranquillity in your soul, and I can support you in this with exercises, including visualisation and mindfulness. Moreover, you can rediscover your passion and the meaning of what inspires you. A sequence of insights and exercises enables you to build a personal and professional vision for yourself. This gives you a compass to redirect your work and career.

Location

I use three methods of arranging the intake and coaching sessions:

Coachhouse

In the Coachhuis in The Hague (Raamweg 4 near station CS) and Amsterdam and Utrecht (depending on what is free). I reserve a room where the intake and coaching sessions take place in advance.

On site

In the Hague, Amsterdam or Utrecht I come to your room if you can reserve a suitable coaching room there.

Online

You can also participate in online coaching sessions if you are too busy or I am overseas. For example, via Skype, facetime or whatsapp.

Costs

Intake interviews are free of charge, regardless of whether they lead to further coaching. The price for a Coaching session, paid by companies of 1.5 hours is € 250, and of 1 hour € 175 excl. 21% VAT, when requested by an organisation. Most courses that I supervise consist of 6 coaching sessions, each lasting 1.5 hours. This means that the price would be € 1.500 excluding 21% VAT. 
But if you have to pay as a selfemployed professional/ entrepeneur (and not by your company) , you will receive a 15% discount. When you are working for a NGO, ypu will also receive a 15% discount.If you have to pay privately, the price is € 150,= for 1,5 hour (incl. 21% VAT) and for 1,5 hour € 100,= (incl. 21% VAT).
