“My coaching journey and working with Annelies made us connect on a much deeper level than I expected upfront. Already in one of the first sessions we had a deep and personal conversation about inspirational leadership whilst keeping focused on the (financial) results. By listening genuinely and asking the right questions Annelies gave me new insights on how to deal with expectations and dynamics in a complex business environment. We really talked. Sometimes confronting, but every time it provided valuable insights.”
