The most special thing I found in working with Marianne is that she digs deeper. Thinking aloud together, digging so deep in me to be sure of my goal so I felt encouraged to take the first step made this coaching a very useful experience.
You need to arrange your ideas in your mind, and you need someone who can understand things between the lines of your story to help you.
And this is what I found in my coaching relationship.

It’s been a fascinating journey of self-discovery, was very insightful to find out our values and finally understand our own choices, our strongest regrets, our drop in motivation and finding out who we are. We could develop trust that made us share openly on personal stuff. Most importantly, it helped me finding my inner strengths as a female leader, able to bounce back and deliver wherever I need to go.

CK. - Head of Organizational Development

Multinational Oil & Gas

“Marianne has been really helpful. I wish I had known all these leadership best practices 15 years ago, as I could have retained so many talents.
Now, people enjoy working with me, they come with ideas and I do not have to push anymore for them to take initiative. When I ask for something, they do it straight away and sometimes I am the only person they really follow. I’m so much happier at work now!
And with my kids too!”
