An individual coaching program offers insight into your own behavior, action, and perception. Coaching “awakes” you. Makes you aware of your talents, abilities, capabilities and intuitive capacities. Because of this, individual coaching is useful in a wide range of topics, such as;

  • Personal issues;
  • Finding new challenges for employees during change processes or reorganizations;
  • Trigger successful collaborative processes between colleagues;
  • Guiding the transformation process; the coach performs in an interim role that constructs and implements the transformation process.

We – at Bureau LAPOUTRE – believe in human scale and common sense above theories or textbooks. ‘Doing what works’ is our motto. We make use of various techniques to make you aware of fixed ineffective patterns. In this way, space is created to develop more effective behavior.

  • “Michel is snel, slim en heeft vooral oog voor de mens in de organisatie. Het was een feest om met hem samen een MT-sessie te begeleiden. Hij heeft veel oog voor het proces en voor het empoweren van mensen.”.

    Robert Wester
    Robert Westersectorleider openbaar bestuur en communicatie-expert bij Berenschot
  • “Met Michel haal je iemand in huis die goed kan luisteren en analyseren. Hij komt in eerste instantie rustig en bescheiden over, maar je merkt al snel dat hij een schat aan ervaring meebrengt (en inbrengt). Ik maakte hem o.a. mee als organisator van een zogenoemde 'hei-sessie'. Daar heb ik er in de loop der jaren veel van gehad. Degene die hij leidde was de beste, mede dankzij de aantrekkelijke werkvormen. Ten slotte - niet onbelangrijk - Michel is gewoon plezierig gezelschap.”
