The basis of a successful Business Coaching is a thorough assessment and understanding of personality and context involved. I have the strong belief that every person is resourceful, hence can unlock their full potential and develop their capabilities and the business. Coachees characterize me as coach who truly wants to understand the person behind the leader, as well the context they are in. I am recognized for the ability to listen, ask powerful questions, mirror and advise if necessary, in order to provide insights beyond the obvious, challenge the status quo and accelerate development.
