What would it be like to lead yourself and others in academia with clarity, focus and more balance?

1. Individual coaching for cristal clear authentic self-leadership

Why coaching?

Do you feel driven by your daily workload and to-do lists while you are running from one meeting to the next? Do you feel pressured by your own standards and the expectations of others? Are you tired of proving your competences over and over again? Would you like to better recognise and strengthen the potential of your doctoral students, but you don't find the time? Are you simply wondering how you are supposed to balance research, being a leader, networking and simultaneously being a good mother, a good partner and friend while not loosing yourself completely?

The multitude of goals, opportunities, responsibilities and incidents all too often distract us from what we actually want. We lose clarity and the focus we need to achieve our goals with joy and balance. 

Coaching offers a safe and confidential space to reframe your authentic visions and goals. This may mean dropping some goals and tasks, but doing others with clarity and sharp focus. We identify obstacles and your stopping points and overcome them together - so that you can be the leader you want to be with ease and balance.

Are we a fit?

Coaching is not for erveryone.


Coaching is not free, nor cheap for two reasons:

  1. Working with me requires significant commitment: not primarily time, but the decision to irreversibly change your way of thinking and approaching life, not only for reaching your own career goals but primarily for being able to do fulfilling and meaningful work that rings true regardless of the outer (career) circumstances.
  2. To create a space that supports you at the highest level, I make the same significant commitment to your vision. That makes us a powerful team set up for success.

If this is too much, I understand. Now is probably not the time.

So are we a fit? If you have read this far and are still interested, we may be. You aren't quite sure where to start, let's find time to chat: Contact me for a free discovery session.
