Introducing our career coach Amsterdam & ‘t Gooi

Martin Verweij MSc, owner of Be the Change, founded the organization 20 years ago, with a focus on coaching, talent- and leadership development. Martin is a certified psychologist, has over 15 years experience in corporate management roles, before certifying as RET-practitioner, career and NOBCO-coach (Dutch Order of Professional Coaches) and certified executive coach (Vrije Universiteit/Ashridge).

A key success factor is the working alliance with your coach. For expat coaching there has to be a certain click and mutual trust. Therefore a few words from Martin on his view to expat career coaching:

“As a certified executive coach for management and directors, I am a solid sparring partner. I am well versed in change processes, especially in personal dynamics. In my approach, we always start from your personal story and work in a solution-oriented way.

I stand beside you like a brother. With great empathy, I mirror your unconscious pattern or blind spot. I ask powerful questions, give you more self-insight, get you moving and encourage you into more effective behaviour”

What does a career coaching trajectory look like?

-After the intake: 8 to 9 sessions are usually sufficient. 

-Over a period of several months.

-At least one offsite session out on the moor (i.e. our office in Huizen).

-An assessment and 360-degree feedback are often used to validate change.

-In accordance with the NOBCO (Dutch Order of Professional Coaches) their Code of Conduct applies, which o.a. guarantees confidentiality.
