    Coaching speciality details

    Eilian strongly believes that almost every coaching topic, at least from a transformational perspective, revolves around limiting beliefs and that a major part of moving forward lies in addressing and constructively dealing with these beliefs. He is an expert in a couple of areas. For one he has coached more than 120 corporate high potentials, for over 900 hours over the past years. In that arena, topics seem all over the place at first glance, but more often than not they stem from similar core challenges. 
For example: the challenge of patiently harnessing one's talent and ambition in a way that will indeed make you a future leader. First of all this requires the insight that only the sometimes arduous personal leadership & development (often more than the hard skills) proces leads to sustainable change and professional succes. There is no shortcut. 
Based on this fundament it’s then about reflecting on situations, gaining insight into one's values, beliefs and emotions and about translating this insight into work-floor action in areas like stakeholder management & communication. The learning that occurs will then be the starting point for the next session. Another area Eilian is an expert on is that of expats & partners. Expats and especially the trailing partners differ from the rest of us who feel stuck from time to time because they have had to let go and re-focus almost simultaneously. Eilian knows from experience that doing so in the right way with the right people leads to a fulfilling time abroad. The positive flip side of letting go is purposefully embracing the open space ahead. He can facilitate you in reinvent yourself from the start or he can help you break out of a negative self fulfilling spiral of isolation and a lack of self confidence. Finally it is worth mentioning that Eilian is an experienced ‘burn-outer’. At one stage in his life a few years back, just after the birth of his daughter, he noticed how he was loosing grip of his carefully controlled life. Work, personal life and just about of everything he did, it had to be perfect. Only to learn the hard way that (attempting) to have control over life is not the same as taking charge of your life. By not taking charge of his life and by not making purposeful choices, he helped himself to a burn-out. And with that experience under his belt he is there to facilitate anyone who is feeling particularly stressed, is suffering form burn out symptoms or who is now in the middle of a burnout.

    About me

    About me

    I am a North Walian by birth, both British and Dutch, and was brought up bilingual. Moreover, I lived overseas as an expat child for twelve years. Literally a ‘flying’ start in life! My overseas expat experience, combined with my parents’ open minded approach to local people and habits, have undoubtedly led to my passion for travelling. All this has shaped my innate curiosity about and involvement with people, leading amongst other things to a master’s degree in Anthropology. And I specifically get a kick out of helping individuals gain more confidence and be truly present. I currently lives in picturesque Haarlem, The Netherlands with my wife and our two young daughters. I have a passion for travelling, sports & nature, and prefer to be outside rather than inside. I received my initial coach training from the CTI back in 2011 and since then have amassed over 1000 hours of coaching experience. Most of which whilst working for 6 years as a dedicated coach for young high potentials during my 11 years with a corporate. 
Although I loved my job, I felt that true professional fulfilment was having my own company and so I started for myself in 2017/2018. That is when I also started focussing on expats and their partners, largely diversifying my client portfolio. I have clients who work for large corporates like Shell as well as private clients. I will be applying for the ICF PCC certification later on in 2019

    Coaching method / approach

    The most important thing for me at the start is to create the right and safe coaching environment with my clients. The foundation is laid in both the taster and orientation session. Confidentiality, safety and client ownership/empowerment are main areas I typically want to focus on. 
 As far as structure is concerned, I will start each coaching session by asking what it is the client has on their mind. What topic needs to be explored? The client decides which direction we move in and I am there to share that space, listen and facilitate heightened awareness, clarity and insight. 
By doing this we are already moving forward. First of all It’s about reflecting on the clients perception of the topic to then expand that perception. That’s how we can we uncover what’s really at stake. Following this we can explore what succes looks like in this context and only then are we ready to identify specific and measurable action in the direction of the desired results. 
In order for the client to truly move forward in between sessions, I also spend time addressing accountability. 
 Quite often a lack of reflection, awareness and thus real insight, will lead to the definition of, in the end, non-fulfilling goals. Moreover, realising these goals will most likely be driven by a ‘fix it’ attitude. As if something needs repairing. But transformational coaching and sustainable change is not about fixing things. Instead it is about expanding awareness in areas like values and (limiting) beliefs in order to really change perceptions, formulate true desired goals and define specific action towards those goals. When we speak about measuring succes, I can say that in general succes for me is when I see my client moving towards their true desired goals. No matter how slow or fast, it is the direction that counts. It’s the perseverance and hard work that is succes in itself. That is also how I champion my clients. I keep on reminding them how well they are doing and that every step of the way is a succes story. On a more practical level I find it important to f.e. discuss how the ‘homework’ went. What did it lead to ? Or what did it not lead to? In both instances I see ‘succes’, because there will be a 'learning' of some kind. What I am very good at is connecting with my clients. By naturally being ‘present’, ‘empathetic’ ‘spontaneous’ and ‘safe’ , I almost instantaneously help create that environment for true learning. My uniqueness methodologically speaking is that if possible I coach outside and will use movement as a tool. The way you move and behave whilst moving will provide me with even more insight into who you are. Besides, both moving and nature have a positive effect on mind&body, and by literally stepping out of your routine, you are creating space for new perspectives. What is also worth mentioning is that I like working with Voice Dialogue as a tool to engage with those often critical inner voices.
