About myself

Working as: Mentor and Coach

Organisation: Better Sage Limited

Short biography

I am passionate about learning and process excellence. I believe coaching is the most effective method for personal and organisational development, and creation of knowledge. »»●«« I work with senior executives, sustainability professionals and budding entrepreneurs to support them in transitions and transformations, enhancing their effectiveness and raising their awareness in areas of personal and organisational direction, behavioural change and process excellence. »»●«« I was born in Czechoslovakia (now Czech Rep.) and my coaching approach has been informed by experiences from living and working in four different countries. I have considerable experience working with a wide range of people, often culturally quite different, across Europe, Africa, Middle East, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and the Americas, which allows me to quickly build trust and rapport. »»●«« My curiosity in life sciences and human nature is the driving force that brought me to study and learn across rather an unusual mix of subjects. Besides Coaching and Behavioural Change my expertise spans across disciplines such as Business Administration, Sustainability, Corporate Social Responsibility, Lean Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement, Horticulture and Agronomy. I have over 15 years of practical experience in international supply chains, food manufacturing, food retail, crop research and production that I gained while working with leading UK food retailers and major food producers across the world. »»●«« As a licensed competitive table tennis player for over 25 years I have learned a great deal from sports coaching and take its benefits to the coaching conversations outside the sports arena.
