Your work and/or private (expat) life. Together we will explore and reframe your coaching objectives, involving the context in which you act and live. Perhaps you recognize one of the following questions or challenges:
I will help you to gain insight in your attributes, talents, motivation and obstacles. Your increased self-awareness will encourage you in undertaking new steps. This way you will confidently develop a clear vision of your career and personal development.
Our coaching starts with a consultation in order to exchange our expectations and verify whether we have a match and would like to work together. This session is free of charge, without any obligation. A coach trajectory usually comprises of 5 to 8 sessions, 1.5 hours each, and involves several phases. In the initial intake session we lay the foundation for a trusted relationship. Together we explore and reframe your coaching objectives. We involve the context in which you act and live. Then, depending on your preference, learning style and your objectives for coaching, I use different tools to increase your self-awareness. Examples are transactional analysis, career coaching (talents, motivation etc.), RET and solution focused coaching. I also use relevant books or videos (e.g. Brown, Manson or Jeffers).
Homework, such as tests or a creative assignment can be part of the trajectory as well. I may also ask you to reflect, for instance on your experiments with new behaviour or perspectives in practice. Safety & trust, encouragement & experiments, and reflections on your experiences are important elements for me in the coaching trajectory.
Besides my MA degree in coaching, I have an MSc in chemistry and I have worked for 10 years in several organisations, in the chemical industry and in management consultancy.
“Through coaching from Maaike I have become more aware of what drives and motivates me. This has made me not only significantly more effective, but also clearly happier in my work.”
“The coaching sessions with Maaike gave me peace of mind by knowing I had properly thought about my job choices in a structured and informed way. It also gave me insight in my process of decision-making and in which choices I wanted to make.”
“Maaike is a coach, who facilitated me to find my own answers to my questions. She does not use a predefined ‘product’, but attuned the tools and techniques to what suited me best. Additionally, it was a big plus for me that she had working experience in consultancy, as she understands my daily world.”
“Maaike is an empathetic coach, who can also be confronting when needed. She helped me to maximise my potential at work, which also helped me to get more out of life in general!”
“Through Maaike’s coaching I have gained insight into my own thinking patterns. I have come to realise what is important for me in a job and what makes me tick. This enabled me to dare to choose. Maaike is sensitive, she asks thorough questions and knows how to get to the core. Besides, she is a very lovely person.”
“Through the combination of Maaike’s openness and her ability to confront, I have gained many new perspectives on my career choices and on what is important for me, professionally and personally. She has helped me discover the questions behind my question, and facilitated me to answer those myself. She is open and engaged, which made the trajectory both enriching and pleasant.”
“Thanks to Maaike I have gained more insight into what motivates me in my job, what obstacles I encounter in my job and how I can overcome these. I am very satisfied with her coaching.”
