allow me to describe my path to becoming an executive coach. I spend all of my business life in the software industry, most recently in interim-management roles at CEO level. In 2012 I attended a leadership training course in California where coaching hours were included. This is where I got to know my first coach based in Vancouver, BC and experienced the power of good leadership coaching for the first time.
I always enjoy developing, motivating teams and making them successful. Coaching helped me personally to get to the next level in my life and I got more and more interested in the topic. Consequently I took my first professional coaching course back in 2015 and a little later I’ve completed my education by qualifying as a High Performance Coach, CHPC.
Let me finish with a quick personal story. As part of a previous role I had long-distance flights on at least a monthly basis. It was a typical business life with late dinners, unhealthy food and so on. A couple of years ago then I was diagnosed with type II Diabetes. Luckily using what I had learnt from my coaching training I was able to change my lifestyle altogether. It‘s a couple of years now that I succeeded in reversing the disease enjoying a life without any medication. Actually today I’m enjoying an altogether different life: a lot more productive and creative. Also way more active, vibrant and fulfilling. Also, I’m noticing way too many other successful people suffering badly from this disease and am more than happy to help them. This is also a reason why I’m offering high performance coaching services.
