Coaching

Coach the professional

‘You can't coach others until you can coach yourself’

Do you want to improve yourself as a (sport)coach or manager and develop your authentic 'basic coaching attitude'? Do you want that your conversation will be in a professional way and avoid talking unconsciously mainly about your self?

Together with Maarten van Heeswijk you will make clear what you experience yourself and what you want to develop. In a number of coach sessions we will work on your personal basis for your coaching / managing like;

- learn to work with your observation
- provide value-free feedback based on your observation
- discover your non-negotiables, the basis of your coaching, for your life.
- how to switch between 'performance-based' and ' development-based'

Personal coaching

As a professional coach I am specialized to challenge and support you to clarify what’s going on in your perception and to challenge you to clarify what you want to achieve or what your perspective is. Then we find and determine the possible steps you can take to reach your target/perspective.
I work with a combination of conversation, exercises, ‘systemic view’ and reflection through writing. In short, anything that can contribute to your awareness and development.

Coaching is future oriented and self steered. A coach is not an advisor!

Raising awareness – Making choices – Taking your responsibility for your choices

There are no easy paths to follow, but there is a path that will lead you back to pleasure and energy!

Coaching can contain different themes like;

– loss of energy
– improve leadership
– regain self-esteem
– coping with stress, pressure or anxiety
– dealing with conflicts
– finding balance between work and private life
– (re)finding your passion
– career guidance

Maarten van Heeswijk is a senior professional coach.

Mental coaching

Your own thoughts influence your actions!

"Mental" is a term for various aspects according to sports psychologists and top coaches. These aspects include:

- Goal setting (Main goal and process goals)
- Confidence
- Coping with pressure
- Concentration
- Visualization

How much pressure do you put on yourself? Where does this come from?
What happens to you and at what moment?

Maarten van Heeswijk guides you in your awareness and development process, so that you gain insight into what exactly influences and distracts you. When you gained insight, the next step is learning and knowing what to do to get your mind back on 'to do what you gotta do'.

Insights Discovery Profile

If you-re not able to connect yourself with others and have spent only limited time on self-management, it will be difficult to be successful in your life.

Based on the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung, the Insights Discovery Profile offers insights into your interpersonal and communication skills.
Insights Discovery uses a simple and accessible four colour model to understand an individual’s unique preferences. Insights measure these preferences based on responses to a short online evaluator. One of the outputs is a 20 page personality profile, which identifies strengths and areas for development.

Insights Discovery is ideal if you want to:

- understand your unique personality
- develop your interpersonal skills
- improve your communication
- create better personal and professional relationships

The Insights Discovery Personal Profile is the starting point for an individual development path in your personal life, sports, work and leadership skills.
