Please note that not all of our coaches are listed on this page but we are working on it!
"What really struck a chord with me at my interview was the obvious passion shared by members of the Coach in a Box team – “a desire to work and have fun” and the ability to “manage the role with heart” were two of the personal attributes asked for on the Finance Role Specification. I liked that. Together with the global aspect of the company, the prospect of holding this job was really appealing. I had previously worked in International Education, where the company aimed to impact children’s lives across the world, bringing together all nationalities and cultures. It appeared to me that Coach in a Box was not so different, with its desire to touch and improve lives in all corners of the globe. They say that as one door closes another opens and it certainly has for me. I know there is so much more to learn but, as I take the time to reflect, I am aware of what has been achieved so far. My catch-phrase in the office is “we’re getting there” and I really feel we are."
“I love the magic of finding the right blend of reassurance, insight and challenge to help someone get out of their own way. There’s this huge sense of relief, joyful vitality, quiet strength and sense of purpose when a person realizes the fullness and potential of who they really are, and what it feels like when they step into that space. It’s both humbling and inspiring to be able to share a part of that transformation journey with my clients – I love my work!”
“Coaching is about developing self awareness and what needs to change to fulfil a client’s potential. It is a partnership where the coach believes in the amazing potential of their clients. For me there is a magic in this relationship and the shifts that are possible . It is also a privilege to be part of a bigger picture with Coach in a Box”.
"I love the dance between me and the client, that play between pushing and catching, the paradox of fiercely knowing and humbly not knowing at the same time, the tight rope between head and heart. When that rope is securely fastened with trust, who knows what new shores we will get to explore?"
"In my own career spanning more than 2 decades in the global corporate world, I have had many coaches support me to make me the success I am today and this has inspired me to do the same for others. I am keen to be a catalyst in my clients' career progression and see each one of them emerge as great leaders."
"I am proud to be a part of the growing global coaching community at Coach in a Box! At Coach in a Box, we strive for quality and we support each other in our learning. As a result, we can more effectively support our clients so that, in turn, they can make a greater impact on their respective communities!"
"Change and transitions are important growth paths. Coaching provides a creative approach to learn from changes and how well an individual adapts and converts these into learning opportunities, determines their success. My intention when coaching is to empower my clients, support them to understand and discover their strengths, make the right choices and move towards their goal."
"For me every human being is exceptional and every life journey is unique. In this era of growing complexity, increasing interdependence, and ever-increasing pace of change, my focus as an executive and life coach is to empower people to forge ahead confidently and happily in their work and life. Using different techniques and tools created by Coach in a Box, the breakthroughs and transformations thus achieved, definitely enthuse, energize and empower people to be winners in every arena of their life. I always say - I am just a facilitator- You are the architect - you design and create your dream life."
"What excites me is how much potential there is for Coach in a Box to support school leaders in their efforts to transform their education systems. The feedback we get from School Principals shows how much they appreciate having someone neutral to discuss their leadership challenges with, and how much they benefit from reflecting on their own leadership. In many cases, the impact can be life changing.
So, I find it really fulfilling playing my part in helping more school leaders to access the benefits of coaching."
"For me, leadership is about bringing our values, thoughts, feelings, passions, behaviours and the uniqueness of who we are into total alignment with our fullest potential and the fullest potential of our community/organisation. Coaching is one of the most powerful tools that I use to lead you, through partnership, to this potential, which is far greater than you have ever imagined it to be."
"For me it is about supporting professional and personal growth, enabling change in a positive way. With a corporate background of more than 17 years, I feel very privileged to work as a coach and to be able to grow myself in this field. To me, each coaching partnership is unique and I am thrilled to support my client's journey. Their success, their increased ability to shape, design and reframe their future is my reward."
"A word that conveys the essence of what coaching means to me is the ancient Hebrew word Timshel meaning 'thou mayest' or 'the power of individual choice'. The choice to grow, evolve and achieve, to move from where you are to where you want to be. For me, coaching is really about discovery, awareness and choice. It is a way of effectively empowering people to find their own answers, encouraging and supporting them on the path as they continue to make important choices."
"As a coach, there is nothing more motivating than hearing coachees talk about how much they have grown through coaching. I love working with leaders of all levels and seeing them make discoveries that transform the way they operate in their business and personal lives. It is such a privilege to witness these profound changes first-hand and to see the impact that it has on such a wide range of people."
"At the end of the day, it is about personal mastery. Coaching found me during my search for higher meaning and purpose. Since then, I have made it my mission to be the same illuminator to others. Coach in a Box has truly redefined and reinvented coaching to be accessible by a wider world. It is a tremendous privilege to work with leaders in this space because to me, Coaching is a way of Being, a powerful source to a soulful organization, a gateway to true transformation."
"My purpose in life is to connect people to who they are as leaders from the inside out and create great places to work. I have worked in consulting, leadership and coaching for over 25 years and am blessed to have witnessed individuals transform themselves into conscious and authentic leaders who create spaces of gracious collaboration. Coach in a Box is a perfect fit for me. We are here to make a difference in the world, one person, one team at a time."
"In my 15 + years as a coach, what's important to me is supporting people in being authentic and confident in being themselves. Having that self-belief and knowing that what we bring is not only good enough, it is unique and exceptional is what inspires others to follow us. Being the best of our natural, authentic selves and expressing ourselves in that way is a one of the most important things we can do as leaders and in every aspect of our lives.. I love being on that journey with people."
"As a successful Fortune 100 leader and expat, I know what it takes to balance results and people while living a purposeful and fulfilled life. That is why I now serve corporate leaders as a learning partner and assist them in uncovering what's possible for them and in making practical choices to achieve what they want. I am proud of being part of Coach in a Box as I watch its magic unfold in Latin America through local language coaching conversations with leaders who say our coaching content is practical, real and applicable to their day to day lives."
"I have always been intensely curious about how people learn, grow and change. Working with Coach in a Box has given me the opportunity to partner with many people from many different organizations. Being part of people's journeys is a huge privilege and something I treat with responsibility, care and gratitude."
"Reflecting on my many years in corporate life, I now know that those I respected as excellent leaders were great coaches too. It is my privilege as a coach to work with leaders at all the stages of their careers, enabling them to become aware of their highest potential. It is never too early or too late to benefit from the advantage coaching will give you in your leadership."
""How do I know what I think until I see what I say?". Funny how thinking is often clearer and better when you do it aloud with another person, one who isn't your boss, your direct report or your mate. I was a leader myself when I realised that we can all use an extra brain from time to time to think through the difficult stuff. That's when I decided I wanted to be a coach and be that for others."
"It still amazes me that when we truthfully look at ourselves and our work, we create the possibility to transform ourselves and our organisations and to live with greater leadership, shared responsibility, authority and presence. I have a passion for development and I am proud to be part the Coach in a Box team, as we aspire towards and role model what we believe in, and partner 1000's of leaders to show up and create change."
"It is so important to connect to our strengths, qualities, uniqueness and aspirations when we explore our development and think about possibilities for change. I am always keen to look beyond the problem and challenge to the genuine possibility and aspirational thinking that lies beneath. I am known for my down to earth style and applying a practical and effective approach to change and development."
"What I especially love about coaching is sharing people's moments of insight. Whenever I witness these shifts in people's thinking, followed by their increased energy and motivation, I marvel at the power of the coaching process. The leaders whom I coach in business organisations and education departments benefit immensely from Coach in a Box's unique models and processes, from my own 11 years of coaching experience and from my commitment to leadership development."
"For me there is nothing better than being present as someone makes an important discovery, takes a step into a new way of being, or begins to live into their highest potential. I am honored to be a member of the Coach in a Box team and grateful for the opportunity to help our clients create positive impact in their lives, work and world."
"I love working both with leaders and companies so that they are successful in multi-cultural environments. Being Austrian and having lived and worked 8 years professionally in the field of coaching and talent management in the United States and also 8 years in Japan allows me to bring my cross-cultural knowledge and experiences to my coaching. I am committed to building new and strengthening the existing bridges between cultures and countries."
"I am passionate about helping managers to become more inspiring leaders and great coaches for their own teams. Having worked in the corporate sector for many years, I am well acquainted with the challenges faced by moving to more senior levels in organisations, or moving across sectors or functions. The qualities I bring to my coaching are empathy, insight, connection, grounded presence, pragmatism and an action focus."
I believe passionately that everyone has a bigger, better version of themselves within just waiting to come out.
Opening the door to that complete and authentic you is a liberating and deeply fulfilling experience and one that often needs support. In my view, coaching is the best intervention to enable this which is why I love my work as a coach working with individuals and as a consultant helping organisations to unlock potential in the many as opposed to the few.
"Coaching, to me, is about being a change agent, and helping the other person be the change they want to see in the world. It's about helping others discover untapped resources and potential that they can bring to the fore, and going with them to a space where they feel confident enough to take the first step on the journey they wish to go."
"I am always one to challenge the status quo, using intuition to provoke, humour to shift the space and imagination to open alternative perspectives. That´s why the provocative Coach in a Box concept of turning coaching on its head makes so much sense to me. After almost three decades of creating businesses and developing leaders across the globe in international operational management positions, I now enjoy helping other business leaders succeed in finding their unique way to be themselves at the best, strongest, happiest and brightest."
"My biggest drivers are recognition, aesthetics and altruism and when I translate this to me being a coach, it reflects my vision of coaching; To recognize and respect each individual’s resourcefulness, to see beauty and strength in adversity and to be a channel that helps enable transformation. Coaching facilitates individuals to become better leaders, fulfilled contributors and happier people."
"As a coach, it is such a pleasure to help individuals expand their sense of what is possible, bring forth their very best and make meaningful changes in their lives. Working with Coach in a Box, I have the privilege of supporting leaders from a variety of different organizations on their important journey of change and growth."
"My coaching practice is based on my personal trust and belief that we all have a deep internal wisdom. The problem is that life gets in the way and our inner knowing is either untapped, or suppressed, or both. Neuroscience is validating this more and more with research that exposes the brilliance of our brains and the power of the mind. I view coaching as a respectful, collaborative and dynamic partnership which ignites the knowledge within, enabling each person’s light to shine."

"I have been on many journeys and worked with people from all walks of life. What has struck me the most throughout this time is my capacity to support and develop people throughout their own journey. Having followed my passion for coaching, my main goal is to inspire those I partner to discover who they are and what they need on the path to their destination."
"Developing a close, open partnership with my clients is always the highlight of working at Coach in a Box. We are fortunate enough to be able to offer a very personal, comprehensive service to our Clients and support them every step of the way, from their initial idea to supporting the change or development needs of people within their business, to receiving feedback from Coachees when their programme has been completed. This is always worthwhile to hear things such as ‘I love my Coach!’ or ‘The programme really helped me’ to know you’re really making a difference."

"Change your thoughts and you change the world. For me, coaching is about supporting leaders to see what's blocking them to authentically be the change they want to see.

It is a great privilege to help people discover the very best in themselves so they can bring out the best in others."

My coaching experience and corporate background aligns me well in helping individuals achieve advanced business performance and make positive, sustainable change."
"My passion for people and exploring meaning and purpose through conversation drew me to coaching. I believe that coaching gives others permission to take the time and space to concentrate on themselves, enabling them to find true awareness.

For me its about the power of conversations filled with heart, wisdom, insight and an element of fun."

"I passionately believe change is possible within all of us, as we gain greater insight and understanding into ourselves. Bringing my previous HR experience, alongside my current work as a coach and psychotherapist, I gain great satisfaction from connecting with my coachees, helping them unlock their full potential and joining them on an inspiring journey of change through support, challenge and insight into who they are and where they would like to go."
"Why do I coach? I enjoy the transformation that takes place when people begin to shift their perspectives. As more and more people develop the capacity to access new knowledge by paying attention, listening deeply and speaking their truth a values-based society will emerge. Problems that today seem insurmountable won't have to be solved, they will dissolve. Ultimately, this is the power of coaching."
"My passion is inspiring individuals to bring forth their uniqueness.

"Leadership today is filled with unprecedented challenges; information overload, multi-generational workplaces and global management just to name a few. It's no longer technical skill or qualifications that make a leader outstanding. It's their ability to maintain focus under pressure and engage others that distinguishes the good from the great - mind over matter. With a background in neuroscience it was the holistic approach that drew me to partner with Coach in a Box. Together we cultivate exceptional leaders."
"I enjoy coaching because it is an inside-out approach which allows me to support individuals to accept who they are and developing the confidence that things can change.

"Someone once asked me what I care for as a Coach? I thought for a while and replied, 'I care for the development of creativity and great leadership in our future generations, because they are the ones who can make this world a better place.'

When we get a sense of who we truly are beyond our learned behaviours and habit patterns. When we become freer, more genuine and natural in how we live, lead and attend to what's important in our lives.
It is truly humbling to walk alongside someone for a while as they explore this with me."
