Are you an expat and looking for management coaching because you want to improve your management skills? Or are you a foreign entrepreneur with a growing business in The Netherlands and do you therefore need to develop leadership qualities?
Or maybe, as an expat, you need some time and support to get used to Dutch working culture?
Whatever is the case, if you want to become stronger in People Management, you’ve come to the right place.
Management coaching expats Netherlands
I, Belia van der Laan, coach expats on the following themes:
- management skills
- coaching skills
- encouraging self-management
- increasing performance
- personal effectiveness and personal leadership
- influencing skills and dealing with conflict
- dealing with change
- stress and burn out prevention
Because I believe that being a leader, your only instrument is yourself, management coaching is not only about your team, your co-workers and the organization. It centers around your skills and you as a person. Your personal leadership. Because who you are is how you lead.
Which leadership styles suit you? What moves you? What effect do you have on your environment, and vice versa? How do you view yourself and other people? What are your goals and how can you achieve them?
It goes without saying that you want your co-workers to thrive and to make their strengths even stronger. That’s being a real people manager, which requires you to connect with people. And to make sure that you are someone they can connect with.
All change starts with self-knowledge. Based on this, we can work on your personal development and professional growth, combining insight with action.
I really enjoyed the exercises Belia gave me. They were mostly simple but with a big effect Something you would do in your daily life but completely challenges and changes the way you look at things. I found them quite challenging as well, but very beneficial for my personal development.
If you want to get to know and reflect on yourself & your career and you’re willing to put work into it, I can highly recommend this coaching. It’s oftentimes a change of view that really pushes you forward.

Your personal leadership plan
The management coaching trajectory is concluded with writing your personal leadership plan. In it we also record what your to-do’s and not-to-do’s are:
- behavior that contributes to highlights and successes
- your vulnerable sides and pitfalls
- how to make adjustments to avoid those pitfalls
- constructive behavior for difficult moments
- what your strengths and weaknesses are
- the direction of your future development
This document is a powerful tool, because it allows you to continue your development independently and it helps to keep you focused.
