I met Renate the first time beginning of 2019, I was working as a researcher and she was my coach. I never will forget our first meeting, when she asked me: how are you doing?, I started crying, I wasn’t completely happy, I knew something on my professional life was missing and I was struggling a lot in my position for many different reasons. My big (professional) dream always was to be a Professor in some university but I wasn’t confident with myself, I wasn’t looking into my values. Renate was my coach for 1 year, and during that time she made me understand my real values. With her help, I could understand my limits; there is no limit – we always can do more. I learned with her to establish my boundaries. if I say no; it is no – there is no problem on this. But the most important, she encouraged me to follow my dreams and today I am a happy Professor at the University of Amsterdam. Thanks Renate,
In het kader van het coaching programma vanuit mijn werkgever heb ik Renate als coach in eerste instantie geselecteerd op basis van haar ervaringen in mijn werkveld projectmanagement en IT. En ik kan niet anders zeggen dan dat dit de juiste keuze is geweest. Samen met Renate heb ik de te ontwikkelen competenties behorende bij mijn functie bepaald, waarna ik in zes intensieve sessies waardevolle handvaten heb aangereikt gekregen die ik direct in de praktijk kon toepassen. En minstens zo belangrijk is dat Renate mij heeft geholpen om mijn kernwaarden inzichtelijk te maken die maken dat ik zowel privé als zakelijk toch duidelijker voor ogen heb wat ik nodig heb. Kortom een waardevolle samenwerking die ik iedereen gun.
“Started coaching with Renate when I changed the organization I was working for. At the beginning I was very skeptical and session after session I started to collect the benefits of our discussions and practices. We had focused on my grow, puting extra accent on believes, values and relationships with others. By the end of our sessions (only 6), we developed a trustful relationship and the learnings aquired I have applied in my development in the new organization. From skepticism to full responsibility and grow. I recommend to work with Renate to anyone who found any roadblocks, challenges in their development or to anyone who really wants to invest in themselves to reach closer to their goals and potential.”
