Thank you Brigit for a transformational session! Not only have you become a trusted fountain of knowledge on all things administrative – You are truly a gifted coach!”
Vision: Human beings at their best that change the system(s) how we live, work, and treat each other and the planet for the better; based on our shared fundamental values of compassion, cooperation, and connection.
Mission: I support you in habitually reaching a state of productivity in times of transition, by working with you either in the capacity of a coach, advisor or both. I combine coaching & neuro-linguistic-programming (NLP) techniques, best practice models from business and methods from the performing arts.
Working Principles & Ethics:
+ Focused on your productivity.
+ Holding the space for you.
+ Objective sounding board for you.
+ Endlessly curious about what you want.
+ Committed to our working relationship.
+ Willing to challenge you respectfully.
+ Shine the light, so you learn how to help yourself.
+ Invite you to understand more about yourself and others.
+ Best business practices from global corporations and theatres.
+ Coaching and Neuro-Linguistic Programming techniques.
+ Acting and improvisation techniques.
You are becoming aware of your patterns, way of working, motivations and beliefs. Also, you will learn how to work with emotions productively, rather than be run by them. You become and stay productive on all levels (physical, emotional, intellectual) in any given situation.
The fact is that people in transition are at risk of being not their most productive selves. A transition might be a change of career, setting up a business, taking on a new role etc. With it comes uncertainty and fears. Fear in a person can result in the most unproductive behaviour for the business and themselves.
I support people in a transition, not because I think they cannot make it themselves. I work with them because I believe they will make it through faster, more successful and even have some fun. Humans operating at maximum productivity live in a state of personal confidence, contentment and motivation.
Combined with the structural elements of a solid administration it is a major key to business success. It ensures operational efficiency, which leaves time to focus on business development.
My coaching and training techniques will help pull your many skills, abilities and experience together to create a plan to achieve both personal and professional goals, consistent with your deepest beliefs and values.
