Confidence Co-Active Coach The Hague

Coaching is transformative work. The foundation is the empathetic and empowering relationship between you and me. It is a relationship with a core intention to cause positive changes that sustain across long time – true transformation as oppose to problem solving/fixing. Coaching is engaging, challenging, dynamic and encouraging.

Changes are difficult even if they are positive. Even more, changes bring about internal conflict and turmoil. What is it like to be at peace?

I am passionate about peace. In the summer of 2015 I was in Nepal giving post-earthquake trauma relief and self care training with a fellow Co-Active coach for MountainChildCare. We trained people who experienced a lot of difficult emotions such as anger, sadness, grief, guilt and shame as a result of the earthquake. These difficult emotions caused internal turmoil and conflict. It is the most rewarding and uplifting experience to see those people after the training with genuine smiles, empowered, hope in the future and internal peace. And to me this is what lies at the core of coaching: internal reconciliation and peace making, which we carry into the world.

My promise to you: I believe in you 100% and champion you all the way. I would not coach you otherwise.

Co-Active Coach Model

In our performance-rewarding environment, it’s easy to lose sight of the value of real connection, intimacy, self-awareness, listening deeply to and nurturing others – the very qualities that inform and inspire what we do, restore us and give our lives fulfilling meaning.

The Co-Active Model balances self-awareness, a keen agility with relationships, and courageous action to create an environment where individuals can be deeply fulfilled, connected to others and successful in what matters most. The “Co” in Co-Active suggests relationship, connection, intimacy and collaboration.

Thus, the “Co” in us is curious, listens deeply, hears nuance, holds space for others, intuits and nurtures. The “Active” in Co-Active stands for power, direction, action and manifestation. So, the “Active” in us is courageous, has clarity and conviction, takes charge and achieves goals.

The magic happens in the dance between “Co” and “Active” — action that arises from presence, deep relationship and context that is channeled into dynamic action and contribution. Balancing and blending these energies allows us to move out of an “either/or” paradigm into a “yes/and” paradigm.

The co-active coaching model was developed by the Coaches Training Institute (CTI).

Confidence Co-Active Coach The Hague Nadja Muller-den Blijker

I’ve worked with various coaches and Nadja is by far the best. Having the proper training and expertise is important, but even more so is knowing when and how to apply it. It’s Nadja’s intuition that is unique as she is quick to respond with the right course of action. Through working with Nadja, I’ve discovered new depths to explore. I’m grateful to call her my coach and friend.
