My approach to coaching
“In my work, I bring together my experience as a coach and also as a manager. I challenge people in being more consistent in their process of becoming more of who they are; to meet fully and freely their own potential. What is the purpose of being purposeful? It’s not only about performance; it’s about the relevance of the performance. There are different levels and different levers that I am connecting. And I am bringing these levers into my practice.”
