After 1,5 year of being owners of our company we experienced some downsides, like being responsible for everything and the feeling to chase anytime and anyplace for new commissions. We asked Stella to help us reflect en make plans. Stella has successfully coached our team in trusting on our own skills in developing our company and taught us ways to increase our professional network. She did that with respect for our way of doing. She structured our goals and made us make plans how to achieve them together. With small steps we found back the balance between having fun in running a company and deal with challenges that comes along in working life and working together.

Stella helped me to focus on my goals and, more importantly for me as an expat and mother whom had been out of the job market for a few years, she really helped me re-build my confidence. Stella is a great listener and worked with a variety of materials which allowed me to come up with some concrete plans to begin my job search. She is also very practical and came up with some suggestions I could never have thought of on my own. She gets results too; after only a few months working together, I had the confidence to begin my job search in earnest and now have a fantastic job in the bi-lingual education sector! I wholeheartedly recommend Stella!
When I met Stella I knew I was ready for a career change but found it much more difficult than I thought to assess my strengths, weaknesses and desires especially since I was new in the Netherlands. Stella’s confidence in me was contagious and her positive attitude was wonderfully supplemented by extremely useful questions, exercises and strategies. I am a success story – I found my dream job.
Stella is well organized, knows how to make an action plan and make you stick to it and she is also a great listener and motivator. If you are an expat partner, she knows how to make the right recommendations and help you understand the Dutch business environment. I definitely recommend her!
