Management coach

As a management coach, I draw from my experience in corporate life. My business experience consists of holding several executive positions all over the world in marketing and communications.

Leaving that corporate life behind me, I have transformed myself into a certified management and life coach for managers, executives, individuals and expats. I believe that a person who has been knee-deep in the daily running of business, combined with an extensive training in coaching can be of added value to any individual or company.

I take a 'common sense' approach to coaching, keep things grounded and humorous and help find the root of the problem. My focus areas are:

- Inspired leadership
- Growth from manager to executive and to senior executive
- Work successfully in different cultures and organizations
- Drive change in tough environments
- Strategy development
- Overcome personality related issues
- Build energy, motivation and self-confidence
- Deal with stress, setbacks, change and success
- Be an effective and appreciated team player
- Work successfully with senior executives at the very top
- Discover talents, opportunities and jobs
- Strengthen authenticity

Sessions can be held at the offices or from several (international) locations from which I work.

I am an open and honest person who always wants the team to perform at its best while having fun. After all, if you do not have fun in your work, what's the point of it? ;-)

My added value for an organization is the vast knowledge I have in the area of technical (low-latency) solutions, coaching and mentoring various team and last but not least being an experience project manager.

I'm open for interim assignments, project and, if you're a really, really great place to work, also a more long-term commitment.

The Man with the Plan

Executive managers of a company should ask themselves a very simple question; How much time do I spend managing my firm and how much time do I spend leading my firm? There are three possible answers:

  1. I spend most of my time managing
  2. I spend most of my time leading
  3. Is there a difference between these two terms?

For those who would tick of box 3, a quick explanation. Managing a firm is basically taking care of the day-to-day operations. The hiring and firing, the troubleshooting and deal making, the sort of stuff you need to do to bring the company towards tomorrow or next week. Leading a firm is something completely different. It's all about ideating and developing the strategic long-term goals of the company, it's surveying the market and tapping into trends and opportunities. It's the sort of stuff many of you wished they had more time for about 3 or 4 years ago so they'd be better positioned today.

If you ticked off box 1, you need to make some changes. In order for your business to thrive in the future as well you need to become a leader. As simple as that sounds, it's not a simple process and that's where I come in; the Man with the Plan.

Perhaps you're stuck managing the day to day operations because your structure is sub optimal. I can step in as your change manager to restructure your unit, giving you the opportunity to start leading. Or perhaps your stuck because you're short on ideas, no longer able to see the next opportunity or the way to get there. I can step in as your innovator, laying the groundwork for your next step forward.

I have ample experience building successful new businesses for banks, brokerages and trading firms. I am a creative thinker that sees opportunities where others see problems and a manager that can create structure out of chaos.

Get in touch and we'll discuss your challenges over a cup of coffee to see how I could fit in to help.
