MAAIKE STRACK VAN SCHIJNDEL
ICF CERTIFIED EXECUTIVE COACH
As (interim) manager and consultant I have implemented many complex change-management projects in organisations, both in The Netherlands and abroad (Europe, Brazil and U.S.). I am familiar with many industries from the inside (services, healthcare and industrial). Companies that I have worked for or with include: Accenture, Achmea Vitale, AVL, EAB, KPN, Multibras, Stork and UMC Utrecht.
I am a certified coach through the International Coach Federation. I can draw on many years of personal international, work, study and practical experience. I speak fluent English, French and Portuguese. To continue to develop myself I have also undertaken various coaching and personal leadership studies. I am certified PCC through the MMS Institute and ACC through the International Coach Federation.
I teach NIA (fitness programs) twice a week, enjoy taking part in cabaret and sing jazz. Mother of two children at university.
Music is an important source of inspiration for me: creativity, listening, flow, daring to play, improvisation and creating. Realising a shared dream gives me energy.
My style is intuitive, concrete, personal, challenging and with humour.
Maaike is able to, with sharp and persistent questioning, let me discover how I can improve. Professional and to-the-point, is able to quickly create a basis of trust.
I had been contemplating a business idea for many years but didn’t take any action. With Maaike as coach, I explored the barriers that kept me from acting. The sessions have given me an incredible push to take the next steps. On a personal and professional level, Maaike is challenging, smart and empathetic. I wish everybody a Maaike.
I have, in a short amount of time, formulated my professional mission; during the sessions a few important things became clear. Maaike was able to let me visualize things, which enabled me to embrace one and other and making it easier to convert things into concrete actions.
Through her specific way of formulating questions, humour and decisiveness, Maaike is able to quickly connect the dots and give you insights in your core motivation and talents. It has helped me enormously is taking the next step in my career.
First of all, Maaike is a kind, warm and lovely human being. A very pleasant person to talk to. She has helped enormously and given me beautiful insights. I am back behind the wheel of my own bus again. I guard my own boundaries better and therefore am able to better focus on my route. That give me peace and feels good. From my hart to my head, and back again. In short, I can wholeheartedly recommend Maaike!
