Why executive coaching?

It can be lonely at the top. Receiving honest feedback is often challenging and sometimes it's hard to not even loose track of oneself, of one's values and emotions. At the same time, things are very connected; leaders have a huge impact on the performance, well-being, engagement and ultimately
lives of people. Everyone profits from a (double) human leader.

What we create together?

Leading teams in an inspiring way isn’t something people one day wake up with or learn in a one-time leadership training. It’s ongoing, very personal and deep work. Especially if the leadership responsibility expands, a trustful companion for YOUR leaders who provides fundamental insights on their leadership style, communication and interaction skills is key. YOUR leaders are the face of your company, they are the ones to connect directly - and these days often remotely as well - with all of YOUR people.

Sonja's executive coaching approach is formed by a deep understanding of leaders’ and people’s needs.
In a 1:1 setting leader and coach work together to
