COACHING
WITH ARJAN

Fully committed to the success of our clients

“I care deeply about my clients and about their success. I believe that everyone is intrinsically creative and resourceful, each unique with his or her own character, style, values and interests.

Effective coaching is a science but never a formula. It is also part art, an art that I happen to be passionate about.  Good coaching is about being present, present in the moment with a client. Listening for potential and noticing the possibilities, creating an energy and forward movement that is the result of the partnership between client and coach, an inspiration that cannot be created by oneself.”
