I’m a Certified Narrative Coach Practitioner
, which means that I’m trained in
making coaching very safe
and very transformative
My clients find their coaching experience to be as safe as sitting on a park bench,
taking a break from all the hustle and from all the pressure.
At the same time, this coaching experience is deeply transformative at the very human level,
by transforming your inner stories, so that those aspects which have been obstacles
are transformed into sources of personal strength.
Most of my clients own and operate their own small business. In that context, coaching is
not only about human aspects, but it is also systemic, in the sense that it is also
about transforming and developing the business system around you. As a business owner, you
have the authority and every right to ensure that your company’s business systems are not
only profitable, but that they also support you in exercising your personal strengths, while
taking burdens off your shoulders. (Making business as effortless as possible generally also
happens to increase your profits as a side effect.)
While I'm generally open to coaching on any topic that may come up (I enjoy
variety), I only accept coaching engagements in the
context of businesses which have a deeper purpose, or in the context
of considering or planning to start such a business.
Here's a brief explanation:
Some people are in business only for the sake of money, and with a goal of earning as much money
as possible. Such businesses don't have a deeper purpose. By contrast, there are also many
business owners who would never be satisfied with a business that is only about money. They have
a deeper purpose, and it can be very empowering to explore in some depth what your deeper
purpose is, and also to explore what you can do to align your business more fruitfully with your
For Christian business owners, business typically is not only about profits, but it also
has a deeper purpose which is deeply intertwined with the owner’s spiritual
aliveness and faith perspective.
Much of the easily-available advice on business development and marketing is based on the
assumption that business owners are primarily motivated by love of money. Some of
that advice is nevertheless also applicable when your business has a deeper purpose. On the
other hand, there is also much advice which in effect tells you to act contrary to your
values and/or contrary to your deeper purpose. If your business has a deeper purpose, you
will certainly want to work with a business coach who doesn't only have general knowledge
about the various themes of business development, but who in
addition has good methods for supporting you as you work on integrating your business
activities with the deeper purpose!
Coaching is a conversation with your coach which empowers you in relation to whatever
challenges you are currently facing. This is based on a number of well-proven methodologies.
For example, the narrative coaching methodology is based on looking at stories
which are part of your life in such a way that you become empowered to transform them
