To cope with the ever-changing world, add value and growth today and in the future, you need to hire for the future. And that’s exactly what I do with a focus on Marketing, Sales, CX and HR, Supply Chain and Finance.
I act as a partner to my clients (companies and candidates) with a long term perspective. Based on a solid needs analysis and good understanding of the context, I bring forward the synergies allowing for long term results.
I do so as I’m passionate about developing people and helping them reconnect with their strengths so to bring them to strong performance while having fun doing so, be it through coaching or recruitment.
My experience is both at national and international level, with a unique combination of HR and business experience, as internal HR professional, as a business leader and as a consultant.
I strongly believe in quality, transparency, pragmatism, integrity, respect.
I am fluent in Dutch, French and English.
"Ticking-the-attitude-and-skills-box" is the most visible element in the hiring process.
But isn’t it the invisible that determines the future? Such as the capability to match with the company culture? Or feel the dynamics of new teams and colleagues?
I’m analyzing both the visible and invisible elements by looking for the attitude and skills fit as well as the cultural and group dynamics fit. This way I have guaranteed long term recruitments for quite a few of my customers (being it companies or candidates).
Yes, we meet and discuss the role to fill, the required hard and soft skills, which profile can make the difference. That’s obvious isn’t it?
But also do we seek to understand the invisible: the culture, the dynamics between people, the dreams and vision of the organization, the way people collaborate and co-create the future, the potential evolution for the person hired. In short; how people connect and energize each other.
Bringing out the potential, the confidence, the insight that more is possible and that there is no need to hold yourself back when interacting with the world around you.
In a fast changing environment, with roles not always clearly defined, and with increasing complexity, people need to adopt new approaches, new types of leadership, new tools. But foremost connect to themselves in an authentic way to discover how they can be productive and engaged.
With the coachee we analyze the situation as is, define the desired outcome and develop the path towards the goal in a practical and pragmatic way. The coachee spots solutions, opportunities, new ways to approach any given situation.
The coaching sessions can take place inside (at the customer on at an external location) or during a walk.
I am trained as a solution focused coach and as a systemic coach.
You want to work today and in the future. And let’s not forget you want to enjoy it. I’m hiring for today and the future.
The implication is that you can expect my suggestions and advice. But I will not – at any time – push you in any one direction. The choice is yours. And I do so because I strongly believe in what Jung said “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become”.
But with my strong network of companies I can pinpoint you towards environments that suit you and will allow you to be a productive, engaged employee and happy human being.
Working with Katia was a real pleasure. Thanks to her oustanding executive search & coaching capabilities, she is very good in connecting the culture of a company with the right skill set & personality of potential candidates. What I especially appreciated was her supportive & very human approach in the whole process. During conversations, Katia also provided me insights in my golden triangle (core values, skills & competences, career goals) which helped a lot in a targeted search for a new opportunity.
