Appreciative inquiry, an effective coaching approach
The ME Company works according to the Appreciative Inquiry method. We use this method for career counselling as well as quarter life crisis. This approach looks at what someone already does well in a positive and appreciative way. We chose this approach because people are often very good at judging themselves negatively. It easier to see what's not going well. In addition, striving for even better and more perfect is not uncommon for many people. Our method looks at the part of your life that does go well and aims to expand that part.
We will therefore start by formulating an objective at the start of a coaching programme. We will draw up a step-by-step plan for this together. We will continue to refine this objective throughout the entire programme. This helps you not only to become realistic, but also to determine step by step what is needed to reach your desired goal. This results in more self-insight and self-awareness and gives you a unique step-by-step plan to actually take action with the help of the insights obtained.
Appreciative inquiry is scientifically proven
Research shows that the appreciative inquiry method used by The ME Company really works for your progress, development and change! It's motivating to develop perspective and hope for the future and move away from today’s problems. If you want to learn and develop, you should set goals, devise useful actions and also get the chance to receive appreciation of others. It works. It makes us move. In fact, it generates enthusiasm and energy! And who doesn't want that?!

About 2 years ago I followed a coaching program at Manou. And I was happy with that! She can hold up the reflective mirror, listen, but sometimes also chat. This was very pleasant for me. I was very comfortable and she helped me a lot. Both...Roxanne Filius
I got to know Manou during my Conscious Birth (pregnancy yoga) lessons. So I don't know her as a coach. Still I dare to say something. What is great about Manou is that she has also had complexities in her path, which she has not bypassed,...Patricia Vriens
