“Courage doesn’t mean you don’t get afraid. Courage means you don’t let fear stop you.” — Bethany Hamilton
“In order to get people to move forward, I need to know what’s holding them back!” I consider this statement to be my most important task in the individual and group coaching that I give.
I do this as a trainer and coach and not as a psychologist or therapist. Therefore my focus is on how you function in the present and in the future. This doesn’t mean we will ignore your past; we’ll simply take it as a given and not as a reason for further investigation. If during the coaching process the past becomes an obstacle to progress, I will then suggest you (first) look elsewhere for help.
In addition, I also apply the following principles:
I begin with the end in mind
I put your needs (not mine) first
I use knowledge as a tool, not a goal
I do not think in terms of right or wrong
I can lead a horse to water, but I cannot (and will not) make it drink
I invest five percent of my yearly turnover on my personal and professional development.
