My journey began more than twenty years ago at the University of Leiden, where I coached a women’s rowing team. What started as a simple task of teaching rowing quickly evolved into a deeper understanding of the multifaceted role of a coach.
As a coach, I realised the importance of not only focusing on the physical aspect of training but also balancing this with mental well-being and group dynamics. Team building became a vital aspect of my coaching approach, creating a supportive and high-performing crew that had fun together. Little did I know that this coaching experience would lay the foundation for my leadership journey.
Over the past 15 years, I have dedicated myself to leading user research and researchers, encountering numerous remarkable individuals who shared a desire for growth and development. As an independent coach, I continue to focus on helping individuals and teams unlock their full potential.
Coaching for Individuals
My primary focus is on personal growth, encompassing personal development, self-reflection, and overall well-being. By understanding your desired direction and goals, you gain a sense of purpose that radiates positive energy to both yourself and those around you. Suddenly, everything seems possible again! If you’re uncertain about your current role and yearn to explore your next career move, or if you’re seeking more inspiration at work and need to establish personal development goals, I am here to guide you.
Coaching for Teams
The performance and well-being of a team relies on psychological safety. It’s all about finding mutual trust, as well as joy in collaboration. Embracing the journey of learning together.
When working with teams, I prioritise building trust and fostering collaboration. Together, we establish effective ways to learn from one another, leveraging individual strengths to elevate the collective team to new heights.
How to get started?
It all starts with a free conversation where we explore what your needs are. No commitment or cost involved. Together we look at your goals, the desired time frame and available budget.
