After years of creating and working towards my goals, I started doubting. Am I being realistic? Are my dreams realistic? Will I be able to reach my goals? Or am I being naive and will I find myself years from now being left with nothing but the sense of a lot of wasted time and money, needing to start all over again? What in the world am I doing with my life? A friend of mine recommended Light Up Your Talent. Immediately after the first conversation, I knew it was the right thing for me to start this journey with Esther. At the end of the ride, I can say, smiling: My goals are unchanged, but realistically designed. Esther has asked me the right questions and gave me the right tasks to make me believe in myself again. I know now why I have the dreams and the goals that I have, and she helped me reassure myself that I have got what it takes.
I very much enjoyed working with Esther. Her broad professional experience and corporate background allows her to combine valuable work related insights and methodologies with a personal approach. In my job I am confronted with many challenges on a day-to-day basis, as a result I was struggling with my career-planning, personal growth and professional development. Through Esther’s coaching, a blend of creating self-awareness, job-crafting and growing personal leadership skills, she helped me bring back focus in my daily work and find answers to the challenges I was struggling with. Furthermore, Esther’s coaching also distinguishes itself by incorporating both professional goals and personal ambitions. As a result of my sessions with her I am now more confident, effective and happy in both my work and my life.
STRATEGIC ADVISOR TO THE MAYOR
Esther taught me to see my true value and seize my full potential. Thanks to her coaching and advice I was able to launch my own enterprise and believe in my own ideas. I would strongly recommend Esther to anyone who needs guidance and support in finding their way in personal and career development.
ENTREPRENEUR & POLITICIAN
Esther is one of the most professional and very pleasant persons which I have met. She was my coach during some time. The task was not easy because she coached me via phone and we had not met before. So she did not know me at all. I also should add that we live in different countries. I am in Russia and Esther in the Netherlands. It took only couple calls after which I started filling like we worked together for a long time and she knew me very well. She understood my concerns from the first words and gave very important comments and advises which helped me very much and continue helping. She showed me my strengths and thought how to use them. We discussed different situations at work. Her advises helped me to define proper solutions. Esther is very care about people and always ready to give her knowledge, skills and I suppose very often heart to help them to achieve their goals at work and what is the most important in their lives.
