Leadership coaching

Leading an organisation, project or team is a complex and difficult task, especially in developing countries where ambitions are high, means are few and competent staff is hard to find.

Also it’s lonely at the top. That’s why more and more leaders contract an experienced outsider as their professional coach. With your coach you can discuss whatever issue you as a leader are facing. The coach will never tell you what to do, but helps you to reflect, to order your thoughts, to ponder your options, to take a decision and to execute it. Your coach will share his/her observations and experience with you. Sometimes he/she may offer new perspectives or models which help you better analyze and understand your actual situation and behaviour.

A good coach is gentle and sharp at the same time. Consider him/her your professional friend in trying times. Needless to say that personal coaching is strictly confidential.

Jan Willem and Gerry both have extensive experience in coaching directors and managers of organisations in Africa as well as Europe. Contact them for further information.
