Coaching is an inspirational and creative partnership that supports a person’s personal and professional growth and helps to cope with changes.
A coach encourages the client to discover their professional and personal potential and make the most of it.
Coaching is focussed on the future. It is important to come up with concrete action plans in the process that will help you achieve your goals. Coaching helps to be a more successful manager.
What does coaching give me?
Who is coaching for?
Managers are often left alone with their problems and questions, or they find that development has come to a standstill. In such situations, coaching helps you find solutions and rise to the next level. There are no restrictions or preconditions to undergo coaching. However, it is important that the client is personally interested in the coaching process.
Coaching is a process where most of the work is done through conversation. The coach is responsible for the process, the appropriate environment and methodology, and the client for their choices, development and commitment.
Upon request, the cooperation begins with a chemistry meeting, where the coach introduces the coaching process and its nature, and the client can talk about their expectations and goals. The first consultation is free of charge and does not entail any obligations.
A professional coaching process can be characterized as follows:
Coaching requires complete trust, which is why the coach considers the following ethical basics very important:
Duration of the session: 1.5h average
Meeting frequency: as desired (usually once every 3-4 weeks)
A total of 6-7 sessions
Venue: coaching room on Tobias Street or any location chosen by the client. In fine weather, some sessions can be conducted outdoors in the fresh air. Contact us for information on prices and any questions!

“Coaching helped me reach my goals and dream bigger than I had ever dared before.”
“Kaie does a very good job of structuring thoughts, setting goals, reaching solutions and delivering results. As always, the answers lie within us, but sometimes it is very necessary to have bystander take a look, ask the right questions and find answers to them.”
“I feel I can only become a better leader by working together with both my people and my coach. While people highlighted my learning paths, as a coach, Kaie in her calm and systematic manner supported me in understanding them, and in guiding me how to grow. Thanks to her support, I’m not only more aware of the tasks I perform, but of the ways how I act and grow as a leader.”
I had to deal with the most heated management issue for me at that time, which we started to dissect. I don’t like conflict or confrontation (who would like that?). So we discussed how to resolve the situation where my colleague had acted with me in a disrespectful manner in front of the whole team, to which I immediately responded. But it ruined the working environment, and my goal was to ensure that we and the team could work together. I wanted to resolve the situation while preserving the dignity of both, and certainly to avoid a repeat of the situation in the future.
Kaie first suggested that I thought what exactly was the problem with my colleague’s behaviour, what my expectations wew for my colleague and what could I do differently in the future. Next, I had to plan out a conversation with my colleague – what did I want to say and what could the colleague’s answers be. That was still the easy part.
Then followed the role play, where we both took turns being in the roles of myself and the colleague in question. I tried to get away from the role game, but Kaie made me accept it in her calm way. For me the role play was far out of my comfort zone but was ultimately the best part of session!!! With every round of the role game, my thoughts became more and more crystal clear, and the mood of emotion diminished. Finally, I was left with only relevant, adequate and valuable arguments and solutions.
The next day, although the conversation with the colleague began with tension in the air, it quickly progressed towards a solution thanks to a structured approach and emotion.
We were honest and made clear and easy arrangements for the future. It was a pleasure to be back at work, and our relationship and cooperation with the colleague was better than ever.
