My background in Coaching
As a certified coach with over 25 years of experience in Human Resources and training,
I have worked with a wide range of people coming from multicultural, multilingual backgrounds,
and with diverse profiles, including
scientific, technical, administrative personnel, HR, finance, IT, government bodies, outreach etc.
and at all levels - from support staff to Management.
As an example of my previous positions, I worked as the Deputy Head of the Management and
Communication Training Department of a large international organisation, where organised and delivered
training and coaching on a full range of topics. I then
went on to be a Human Resources Advisor working on all aspects of HR, including recruitment.
I am grateful for this experience and the opportunities it has given me to work with people to help them
move forward in their professional careers and in their own growth.
What is your current work doing to you as a person - to your mind, character and relationships?
Roman Krznaric, How to Find Fulfilling Work
Fullfill yourself and Feel Alive. Feel Alive and Fulfill Yourself.
Be yourself. Everyone else is already taken.
Doing what you like is freedom, liking what you do is happiness.
If we're growing, we're always going to be out of our comfort zone.
You are never fully here because you are always busy trying to get elsewhere.
Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life's Purpose
To succeed... You need to find something to hold on to, something to motivate you,
something to inspire you.
When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon
the closed door, that we do not see the ones which open for us.
Alexander Graham Bell
Examples of motivation factors
Frederick Hertzberg in 1959 presented this diagram which shows
the factors that may influence our motivation in the workplace. The main idea is that hygiene factors,
although they will per se not necessarily motivate someone, if they are not there, they can
lower motivation. Examples of hygiene factors: clean working environmnent, comfortable chairs,
clear policies and rules etc.
Motivation factors can help increase motivation. Examples
of these could include: job recognition, the work itself, opportunities for development, promotion etc.
This model can be useful in identifying what is important for us in the workplace. However,
it is important to bear in mind that the influence of any of these factors may vary depending on the person.
Success means to love yourself, love what you do, and love the way you do it.
