You're coming from abroad and you are working for an organization in the Netherlands with English as the working language. Or: as a Dutch national, you work abroad and the working language is English.
This time you can use an extra helping hand as a professional at work and coming home to a strange (work) environment. From an experienced and knowledgeable professional. Face-to-face or with an online coaching.
Then Expatoaching 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.
Martin has reconnected my head, heart and soul. This automatically resulted in me rediscovering my own strength. I also learned to handle (emotional) manipulation, confrontation and overcome my fears. I am extremely grateful to Martin for rediscovering myself and would like everyone to have this experience. In short: I highly recommend Martin's coaching!!!
The Skype coaching session felt as if I was sitting directly next to Martin again! This enabled me to speak openly and with trust. Very helpful coaching session with clear and practical feedback that I could apply directly at work with tangible results.
Martin is a true and intellectual professional, who is an expert in guiding people to approach business content with authenticity. This transformation allows them to come in their own strength, resulting in an increase of confidence and a successful performance, as well as a personal value add towards a happier lifestyle.
Martin gives me advice on my career and life. He inspires me and gives clarity face-to-face, by audio and video call.
As an internationally experienced and expert business and life coach, you have come to the right place with these questions. Simply because of my extensive experience and proven results with an average score of 9 on evaluations of international training and coaching in the field of personal development, leadership and professional effectiveness. In addition, I have made many trips and visited many cultures over the past 30 years, which means that I can empathize with the differences you will encounter. I give you in-depth insights and practical 'tools' that you can apply immediately and see results quickly.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
Sometimes you are asked to write a short and focused autobiography to better map your ego patterns.
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.
I use three methods of arranging the intake and coaching sessions:
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).
