Martine has unique coaching skills, her key strength is to be empathic while listening and therefore able to effectively coach as if she was in your shoes. Also appreciated the contribution she gave in change management, help moving and developing my team from the initial status to the desired final stage. And last her great mastery on organization design principles helped me out multiple times during organization assessment and re-design projects.
Recently I was offered a Leadership Coaching opportunity by my employer. I have completed the full Coaching trajectory with Martine while she was guiding me through in a truly professional and empathic way. At the start I was provided with a clear overview of the overall purpose, the tools to be used and the goals to be achieved. In very structured though natural way the Coaching process enabled me to increase my self awareness through a better understanding of my internal drivers and my impact on others within my team. By asking the right questions, Martine triggered me to come up with the right insights from within myself. The entire journey definitely enabled me - as a leader - to become a better version of myself.Senior Strategic Manager at Kellogg’s
I had a chance to study with Martine and practice coaching sessions. All sessions with Martine were very professional and impactful. I really enjoyed working with her. As a coach, Martine creates a great atmosphere of non-judgement, comfort to open up, support and pleasant concentration on facilitating coachee's thinking. Being coached requires courage and it is important to do it with somebody like Martine who can really be with you on this path of self-awareness and change in order to reach your goals. She has a lot of empathy from one side and great listening and result-oriented skills on the other. For leadership coaching, you need a specific profile of people with relevant experience and very strong coaching competencies. Martine is a trustworthy guide who can accompany you in self-reflection and decision-making process towards more meaning in your personal and professional life.Marketing Manager at Bridgestone EMEA
Martine is passionate and caring with extensive experience. Be it coaching, team development days or optimising organisation performance Martine always ensured everything ran smoothly and listened to feedback. A true fun professional, highly recommended.”
From our collaboration at P&G, I can for sure remember how Martine is committed to find the best approach for both business and people. She indeed combines HR expertise with business sense and a warm hart. We had to solve complex organisational re-design and people cases together. She was a precious asset in the lead team.
Martine kon haarfijn uitleggen hoe je als HR een belangrijke rol kan spelen in het bepalen van de strategie voor een bedrijf
Structuur van de training was heel goed
Expert aan het woord
It has been a great pleasure working with Martine. Her approach does wonders and helps one come to conclusions pretty easily when it comes to identifying the main challenges to overcome. Working with Martine has helped me on several levels, professional one as well as the personal one. Getting to know your own weaknesses and strengths, work with those and use them to ensure good performance within the role is often a challenge, whilst staying true to your personal values. The sessions with Martine have helped to move closer towards that goal in the professional life. Thanks a lot Martine and looking forward to work on some other challenges together with you in the future!
