What is coaching
Coaching is an alliance between you and me where we work together to reach your goals, solve problems, and create learning and change. In a series of conversations, we explore what you aspire to create, where you are now, and what you can do to close that gap. Coaching encourages you to take action and make change happen.
Common benefits people experience from coaching include:
- Increased self-awareness and self-compassion
- Improved sense of direction and focus
- Accelerated learning around a distinct topic
- Increased performance in a distinct area
- Increased resilience and resourcefulness
Who is this for
Coaching works especially well if:
- You are excited by the process of self-discovery and continuous learning
- You are committed to your personal growth
- You are open-minded and willing to see things from different perspectives
- You have a sense of need and urgency for learning and change
- You have something to protect and a cause greater than yourself to serve
How does it work
Every coaching experience is unique and tailored to your needs. Coaching assignments typically last 2 to 12 months and include an introductory conversation to create the right context and determine mutual fit, followed by several sessions focused on inquiry and action, and a concluding session to capture learnings and set future direction.
My practice is focused on professional effectiveness. Themes commonly explored include:
- Career reflection and planning
- Goal setting and outcome-directed thinking
- Prioritization and decision-making
- Time and task management
- Productive habits and routines
- Dissolving mental blocks
- Mental resilience and grit
- Setting and enforcing boundaries
What do you want to achieve? Let me know in the short form below, and I look forward to exploring how we can work together! 🙂
I love to enter someone’s world and help them do what they’re capable of. It’s one of the most fulfilling things for me. I’m genuinely curious about others and find it easy to put judgments aside and make it entirely about them.
Previously, I was the COO at the Effective Altruism Foundation for 4.5 years before shifting more time towards coaching. This role allowed me to get a deep insight into the EA community and its values, beliefs, and culture. I’ve worked closely with operations and project managers, community builders, and researchers and understand where they’re coming from. I’ve also worked in several other industries and countries before which helped me broaden my horizon and gain life experience. See my LinkedIn for my full professional background.
What does a typical session look like? — Sessions are 90 minutes each. We typically start by reviewing your assignments from the previous week and identifying the topic and goal for the current session. We then explore that topic and find ways for you to achieve your goal. We conclude by summarizing and agreeing on a set of next actions that you can work on between sessions.
How many sessions will I need? — This depends on what you want to achieve with your coaching. Typically, 3-4 sessions will give you a taste of the potential results. 9-12 sessions is usual for people who want to create significant change. You do not need to commit to a fixed number of sessions in advance, only to doing your best for yourself and paying for the sessions that you receive.
What does it cost? — Each 90-minute session is €50 for personally funded coachees or €100 for corporate-sponsored coachees. The first session is free. If you really want to work with me but money is an obstacle, please let me know on the signup form.
How can I pay? — You can make payment upfront via bank transfer or PayPal.
What is the cancellation policy? — You can reschedule your sessions up to 24 hours in advance. Later cancellations will be charged the full cost of the session.
