Leadership coaching for

humanitarians and NGO staff

All coaching will follow the standards and ethical principles set up by the professional association

“International coaching federation” (ICF).

Are you a country director, a head of mission, country representative or CEO of an NGO, a humanitarian organisation, or a non-profit organisation? Are you responsible for the smooth running of the mission in a complex environment?

Are you a senior leader or manager, passionate about your mission, who wants to inspire the team to do a quality job and contribute to improve lives of people. 

Maybe you were a technical person, good in your job, and due to your good work, you are now a senior leader, Head of Mission, or country director, and now you are in charge of a mission, the program, and a big team.

As professional certified coach with experience in humanitarain leadership and NGOs, I support  NGO leaders or humanitarian leaders with leadership coaching / executive coaching with the aim to become a succesful leader.


Working as a senior leader, country director, Head of Mission or CEO is a responsible and important job, you are a role model, giving direction, responsible for results, but you will also face many challenges. Leading a mission and a team in a humanitarian context or international development has its own challenges. It can be tough, in a complex, challenging environment, where you deal with insecurity, bureaucracy, uncertainty in an ever-changing environment. There can be a high workload, deadlines, high demands, and limited resources.  As a leader you want to motivate your team, to influence, reach results, develop a high performing team, facilitate change, with the aim to contribute to a better life for people in the country you work.


As a leader you may ask yourself:

  • How will I effectively lead my team and the mission?
  • I have a vision, I want to change direction, but how do I facilitate this change?
  • How do I deal with politics, the changing environment, and the different stakeholders?
  • How do I deal with stress, challenges, and conflict?
  • How can I communicate effectively and ensure effective communication within the team or organization?
  • How can I get the best out of my team?
  • How do I deal with the different cultures and norms?
  • How do I balance delegation and control?
  • How can I lead my team and facilitate change in times of crisis?
  • How do I support leaders and managers in my organization?
  • How do I manage my time?
  • How do I deal with uncertainty?
  • How do I ensure a good atmosphere and a learning environment in my team?
  • How can I ensure a good work-life balance?
  • How do I take care of myself?


As a certified coach I will support you by listening, without judgement, asking you powerful questions, help you to self-reflect, to gain self-awareness, find the resources within yourself and  understand your own competencies , help to understand how you are perceived by others, explore different perspectives, find answers to your questions, inspire and energize, identify and clarify your goals, identify appropriate action steps to reach those goals, increase self confidence, develop leadership skills and enjoy the role of being an effective leader.


Once you make changes as a leader, it will have effect on your team, the organisation, and the external environment. Your team will become more engaged and motivated, be empowered, take ownership, and reach results.  

Therefore, leadership coaching is an investment in yourself as a leader, your team, and your organisation. It is the opportunity for you to grow and develop as a leader.


As professional certified coach, I am here to support  you, to unlock your full potential,

create a sustainable transformation and

become the leader you want to be.
