Authentic leadership

Coaching, training and advice for leaders who want to be comfortable with their conscious choices and decisions so that they can be more authentic with respect for themselves and others.

Are you ready to become the leader you were meant to be?

Do you know that feeling when your cauldron seems to be boiling over? Your environment is exasperating you. Things don’t ever seem to go smoothly. You should lead by example, but the others are always making such a mess of the situation. As a matter of fact, you feel like you should say something, but what’s the point, they don’t get it anyway, right? And so, you are close to throw in the towel and walk away.

But have you ever considered your own responsibility in these situations? Have you investigated what you are trying to avoid by behaving like you do? Have you reflected about how you’re explaining away your own contribution?

The key to unblocking these situations is to take responsibility for your own choices and behaviors. It’s making choices and owning the consequences. It’s considering how your own behavior is impacting others.

By getting out of the conflict zone, you will be much more balanced and far less stressed. You will feel that you have plenty of possibilities, all while keeping your relationships in good shape. You will experience much more love, appreciation and receptivity in your interactions with others.

Take responsibility today and feel comfortable again about your choices and decisions!

Recognize this?

  • You feel like life is happening to you
  • The others always irritate you
  • You get frustrated and upset about how things always seem to go wrong
  • You cannot share information, because then they will use it to get at you
  • You don’t want to make mistakes, because then you have failed

Program

3 days of training and groupcoaching

We will conduct 3 days of training and group coaching in small groups. During these days, you will discover your personal values and drivers. You will discover where your personal beliefs are coming from and what you can do to change some beliefs which are no longer serving you.

5 individual coaching sessions

During your individual coaching sessions, we will elaborate on topics which might still be difficult for you personally or explore situations in which you might still be stuck. Your internal resistance and thought patterns will be considered and you will create your own strategy for success.

Workbook and exercises

You will receive a personal workbook with questions and exercises to guide you through the process. It will be your future reference when you feel you might be losing track or want to reconfirm your values or new-found beliefs.

3 days of groupcoaching:

1

Your values and drivers

In this first day, we will discover your compass of values which guide you through your life. You will learn how to use them consciously to make decisions which feel good.

We will use the Enneagram tool to understand your drivers and how they impact your daily decisions.

2

Choosing your beliefs

All our drivers also have a pitfall associated with them, which we will investigate during this session. You will learn to understand your pitfalls, start seeing your blind spots and create strategies for working around these.

We will also see how we often tell ourselves lies, which will ultimately deteriorate our relationships, but also our quality of life. We will learn how to tackle these in a more effective way, so that life and work feels easier.

3

Navigating and driving change

All change is difficult and there are many hoops to jump before embracing change. We will learn how you can be intrinsically or externally triggered for change, how you can be braver in failing and how failure is just another clue to get on the right path.

What happy clients say

“Birgit is a very enthusiastic and competent coach who really listens and responds to the needs of the coachee. Her extensive experience in consulting and project management is of great added value. By asking the right questions at the right time, she supported me in doing critical self-reflection. I would definitely recommend her as a coach.”

Stéphanie Vets

During her coaching, Birgit shows the coachee how and where to improve – not in a directive manner, but in a way that the coachee sees the gaps himself and can formulate his own path for improvement. Birgit will also continue to support you after the coaching session, informing about your progress and making corrective suggestions if and when necessary. In small steps, she helps the coachee to reach a common goal.

Malika Rahou

“I had the great opportunity to get advices from Birgit in an HEC leadership training. She provided me very relevant advices with regards to management of self and others. Birgit is great in listening to others and I had several to-the-point recommendations that were very useful in for improving my leadership style and making the decision making smoother in a complex environment (multi-cultural for instance). I would definitively recommend Birgit for coaching activities.”

Paul Bayle

““I don’t do short-term” she told me once after we had recently met and started working together. And that quote always stuck. Birgit has an almost innate passion to make people grow, both professionally as well as personally, and she is excellent at it!”

Katy Willems

“During her coachings, Birgit creates a ‘safe space’ and she knows how to build trust with a client. She always asks clarifying questions and her curiosity drives the question “what’s possible here?” She allowed me to discover what works for me and guided me through my journey. But she also shared information in a way that allows me to learn. For me, it was the perfect balance. Thanks a lot Birgit. Wishing you much luck on your coaching business!”
