Executive Coaching

Ruthless compassion. The seemingly paradoxical deep sense of love/compassion and the fierceness of the warrior. I will meet you there. 

My focus is in creating an environment where we can have courageous conversations addressing your main purpose and values; leaders who are able to articulate on and initiate their purpose and values are able to unleash development to higher performance and sustainable results.

As an Executive Coach and Executive Searcher, what inspires me every day is helping people in their journey to create and have a better and purposeful life that matters and meets their personal goals.

Bercan is an original thinker, highly sensitive, with a strong business acumen. She has a mission: everyone has the right to be heard. She is an acknowledged and well-known pioneer of diversity at the top and she knows the pitfalls and the strength of being different, and she knows how to achieve.

Born in Istanbul, Turkey, Bercan studied business economics at the Bosphorus University. After graduating, she pursued her career in various senior consultant and management roles with Dutch and international organizations, among which Arthur Andersen, Nozema, Coopers & Lybrand Management Consultants and Interboor Nederland BV. Her last executive role was with Brunel International NV, where Bercan as CFO was responsible for financial policies and management. Finally, she launched Woman Capital BV and positioned it in the market.

Bercan is currently chairman of the Supervisory Board of Dolmans Investments, member of the Board of High Quality and De Balie, Catalyst at NL2025, and she is member of various Advisory Councils in different organizations.

As an Executive Coach, Bercan knows how to get to the core… your core. She balances a confronting with a compassionate style; all in order to let you flourish, shine and become the best leader you can be.

As an Executive Team Coach, Bercan creates and guides the teams through thoughtfully designed programs to help them gain insights in order to successfully manage their challenges ahead: on alignment of the top team; creating high performance teams; or a full scale culture transformation to drive the business to the next level; with visible and tangible results.
