Ellen Kuners, working and living happily in Utrecht, in the centre of the Netherlands.
Dreaming of a house near the north sea, working from a room with a view, being inspired by the ever changing skies, the breakers and the birds.
At the start of my career my job was teaching drama to students at Secondary Teacher training. There I developed to be a teacher, enhancing awareness, conscious choices, exploring one’s ethics as well as one’s courage. Rich years! Economizing forced the young teachers to look for other work and I moved towards training, soft skill trainer. Have been a trainer for many years, communication, leadership, coaching, train-the-trainer programs, many subjects. During that journey I’ve been studying a lot too, Psychosynthesis and Organizational Development, et cetera.
Learning is being enhanced when based upon qualities people have, challenging their potential, confident about their creativity and their resources, their ability to behave in such ways that it matches their values: walk their inner talk.
That’s the process I want to facilitate and support: bridging the gap between what you know you can do, what you want to do and what you do do.
One of my specialties: working with the people who are being defined by their colleagues or their superior as “being difficult” . Quit often these persons have been profoundly disappointed, don’t feel heard a/o seen and tend to think that they are easy to be seen through….The misunderstandings are almost tangible, don’t you think? The coaching has been successful when the frustration diminishes and joy and collaboration increases. The success comes from a firm believe that people are naturally creative and resourceful, that they do have all solution within and they ‘just’ need revealing.
A few facts:
Wrote a small book about personal radiation, coach since 2002; (Certified) Organization Relationship Systems Coach since 2011, trainer since 1990. Independent freelancer since 2006.
Love to work in co-creation. The year 2013 gave me the opportunity to work with students again, young people participating in a minor Project Management. Together with one colleague we try to seduce them into self-reflection and learning together.
