Why Coaching

Bill Gates said it best: "Everyone needs a coach." No matter how successful you are, coaching propels growth.

 

Blackhole Coach was born out of from my own journey of transformation. Having always been a rebel and challenger of conventional norms, coaching has helped me navigate career changes, learn from mistakes, regain confidence, lean into my unique talents, and use my strengths. I have shifted perspectives and found a way to be my authentic self combining my different identities as an individual, a mother, a wife, and a leader. Now it's time to give back!

Why Blackhole

In today's volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world, it's more important than ever to be adaptable and anticipate change. Corporate cost efficiency and change programmes, outsourcing and process optimization are lurking around every corner in almost every organisation. “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” is a famous quote from legendary management consultant and writer Peter Drucker. However, when corporate change throws people off the tip of Maslow's pyramid and threatens job safety, position or power, the reverse conclusion suddenly may apply: "Strategy eats culture for breakfast." 

 

When corporate strategy starts to undermine culture, the best organisations, teams and people can become toxic. They hit rock bottom of the change curve and can be sucked into what I call the "corporate black hole". Like stellar black holes, corporate black holes are invisible - a dark, energy-sucking place that can make you lose sight of your true self. Survival mode kicks in as if they were in a life-threatening situation. If you're struggling to find your way out, coaching can help.

 

“If you feel you are in a black hole, don’t give up. There’s a way out,” said Stephen Hawking. “[...] black holes ain’t as black as they are painted. They are not the eternal prisons they were once thought. Things can get out of a black hole and possibly come out in another universe.”

Escaping the black hole is possible. It can however be difficult to do without support and can be an exhausting and lengthy process. I've been there myself and have developed a unique coaching model to help others escape the corporate black hole.
