Thank you, Marco, for being there and asking the right questions.

Therapy and counselling focus on the past and deep personal issues, while consultants provide expert answers and advice to clients. 

Coaching is more collaborative, more action- and solution-oriented, and focuses primarily on the future and moving forward.

Why work with a coach?Coaching is an investment of time, energy, and money. So, why do individuals and organizations hire a coach?


A coach creates a confidential safe space to discuss personal and professional challenges and try out new ideas and mental models.


Having a trained professional as a dedicated sounding board and thinking partner brings powerful insights and clarity of thought.


A coach helps clients organise their time and energy more effectively, get more done, and attain more balance in their life and work.


A coach will hold you accountable for the goals you create. By offering guidance, questions, feedback, and encouragement, a coach will help you leverage your strengths, monitor progress, and maximize results.


A coach listens to help uncover the real issue(s). Often, the problem a client presents is merely a symptom. By asking thoughtful questions, a coach can dramatically help to frame, focus, and make decisions.


People who are clear about who they are, their priorities, and where and how to focus their energy, can communicate more cleanly and interact more effectively with other people inside and outside the organization.

Increase productivity and performance
Enhance management and decision-making
More effective time management
Better team-work and collaboration
"Marco's coaching work has been invaluable and effective. Indeed, the results were quickly felt as much in the improvement of the team work of the Department as the realization of my own objectives."
Pascal Deleu
Corporate Services Director, CTA

My style of coaching...

… originates from Columbia University and integrates theory with practice drawing from positive psychology, neuroscience, organization development, business management, adult learning and leadership research.

The diagram below illustrates what typically goes on behind the scenes in my coaching engagements. Of course, my clients need not be aware of any of this; they just think we’re having a focused and productive conversation!

"Marco was a tremendous coach to me. His wisdom, kind yet firm approach, and tremendous technical knowledge of the diversity of tools I could use to navigate my leadership challenges, made all the difference.”
