Download Marie-Caroline’s Profile

Consultancy and Coaching experience
Marie-Caroline coaches executives and high potentials across a range of industries both multinational and international. Her focus is on personal and professional growth. Her approach looks at taking the coaching client out of his/her comfort zone, usually their intellectual competence, into the area of emotional intelligence, allowing him/her to enhance their awareness of self and their impact on others. Marie-Caroline provides a space for the individual to experience and learn to deal with their emotions in order to add this component to their range of competencies. Emotions become a strength rather than a weakness or threat.  Her coaching is based upon mutual trust, commitment, action and results. Marie-Caroline shows a deep respect for the individual as a whole person and their situation.  Marie-Caroline brings to her work a bi-cultural heritage (French and German) and a broad experience of multicultural backgrounds. She coaches primarily in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and can also coach in Spanish.
