Are you an over achiever or do you get too little out of yourself? Just got or would you like to take that promotion to the next level? Lonely at the top? Are you stuck in your current role or personal situation?
Whether your goal is related to your international move, or general professional / personal development, I can support you:
I draw on my international working experience (UK, Spain, Brazil, Bosnia and Serbia) in diverse contexts (bank, army, diplomacy, hospital). Therefore, I can relate to different backgrounds.
Depending on your coaching question, a trajectory takes 6 to 9 sessions of 1.5 hours. Online, face-to-face, hiking or at your location, the guiding principle is what matches your needs and your way of learning.
Practical and inspiring assignments deepen insights from the coaching sessions and convert them into actions. My way of working is complimentary, deepening and activating:
Result: The changes you desire will be tangible and visible, in thinking and doing, for you and for your environment.
“Martine has been instrumental in my professional development. A fantastic support in finding purpose, work-life balance challenges and working through the difficult decisions, such as people management and significant organisational changes. She is able to empathetically listen as well as challenge on your thoughts and considerations. She creates a safe environment and can switch and connect easily between professional and personal questions. A fantastic coach for managers, directors and VP’s in any company, highly recommended.”
“‘The coaching sessions I had with Martine helped me tremendously and provided me with insights about myself and my career that I would not have come to on my own. Martine was great to work with, she made me feel at ease and is open, kind, as well as professional. She knows exactly what questions to ask to uncover the (root of) problems and thought patterns you may not even be aware you had.”
“Coaching gave me focus and peace of mind. Martine is an admirable person both for her achievements as a professional and her simplicity as a human being.”
“I couldn’t have initiated my career shift without Martine’s guidance. Not only is she a great listener who knows how and when to give the best advice, but she was also able to motivate me at my lowest. She is very helpful and kind but also efficient, knowing how to make the best out of the sessions we had. I recommend Martine without hesitation.”
“I have learned from the sessions with Martine to be compassionate to myself and others, to see how far I already had come and to give myself credit for it, to not be so hard on myself and to find that many times (if not all) I set my own obstacles – which also makes me able to remove them. It has helped me to identify my personal mission and solve he challenges of living in my new country. I have gained insight of the obstacles I created and why. Now I am able to make the conscious choice between being uncomfortable and unhappy or being brave, proactive and more fulfilled!”
“Coaching helped me find my way, gave me the time to think of what I wanted, what I needed and what is important to me, visualizing it and incorporating it in my life. So it was me telling myself what to do! We found solutions with Martine asking me the right questions at the right time. She is a passionate, positive, motivating and challenging coach! I can truly say that the coaching changed my life positively.”
“Martine’s workshops made me realize that I can be comfortable and happy where-ever I am, it solved my wanting to go away all the time. It gave me ground and help me explore areas of my life that I didn’t want to see. It gave new order in my priorities. Change can be powerful!”
