Philosophy

Leading self

Leading change starts with leading self. You lead by example and are passionate about making an impact for yourself, others, and the world at large. You combine entrepreneurial energy with an innovative and creative edge. You are not afraid to challenge the status quo and to ask why not? You dream big.

Leading others

I believe in you and help you get there, beyond what you think is possible. I do not use standard models, but develop bespoke solutions for every client drawing on a variety of approaches such as via coaching, Implicit Memory, art, music, and movement. I adhere to the stringent professional coaching standards and ethics of the International Coach Federation.

Leading change

My Philosophy is about integration of work and life, courageously designing the life you want, not the one others want you to live. As a result of our coaching together, you will have a clear compass and the energy to move forward to make big stuff happen in all areas of your life. We create lifework futures, one person at a time.

We co-create a bespoke coaching package, based on your needs and income. But remember: coaching will cost you more than money. You will need to commit your time and energy. I will stand by, but you will have to fight your own inner battles.

As a result of working with me, my clients have changed jobs, moved countries, created their own businesses, moved on to senior executive positions, designed new products, found love, and their sweet spot for both family life and work. Ready? Contact me here.

Impact

Play big

One of my amazing clients faced her fear of not being good enough and successfully secured a USD 80k contract to lead and implement culture change for a global private equity company – across all their locations. She did that despite being more expensive and in competition with McKinsey and a renowned culture change consultant well-known to the company.

Run a profitable business

An entrepreneur I coached moved her passion from hobby to a profitable business, with a 6-figure annual income.

Change your career

One of my clients dreamed to completely change his career. He changed continents and industries and is now working toward resolving frozen conflicts. In the process, he came closer to his partner, family and friends.

Get a C-Suite position

A client, who is an employee of an international NGO, successfully positioned herself as incoming COO with unanimous endorsement from the Trustees. She got married and is now planning to have children.

About

Lise Bruynooghe

Lise Bruynooghe

Impactful change makes me feel alive. When the new CEO of the international development organisation I work in kick started a major modernisation programme, I was hooked. I joined his private office and started training as a professional coach. I since then combine a full time job as Advisor to the CEO with my coaching practice.

Change brings deep transformational learning. I thrive working at intersections, where different professions and ethos’ come together and enjoy juggling between languages and cultural mind sets. A French national, I was raised in Germany and subsequently lived in Russia and the UK. Currently, London is my home, together with my husband and our three children.

As full time working mum and entrepreneur, I experienced the exciting transformation from women to mother as well as from employee to entrepreneur with all the joy, pain and doubt it can bring. I am a strong advocate of a more creative approach to life and passionate about shaping the future of work.

My work is bespoke. My work is profound and healing. I only accept a small number of clients per year. Ready?

Testimonials

Sara Boas

I have had the opportunity to get to know Lise in depth, as she is a fellow of our professional coach certification – a highly selective professional development programme that attracts outstanding individuals from around the world. Lise demonstrated her many gifts throughout the programme. She combines a brilliant mind and extraordinary capacity for learning with deeply held values, heartfelt empathy, socio-political awareness, personal honesty, and emotional maturity beyond her years. She has a high level of self-awareness and knows her own strengths and interests well. As a result of this combination of qualities, I would entrust her with any professional role that captured her imagination. As well as recommending her without reservation, I would add that Lise is a delightful human being and a pleasure to teach and to know.

Experiencing a masterful coaching approach, which I had not been familiar with beforehand, helped me see how using coaching type techniques and thinking as part of my leadership approach can significantly improve my communication with other people.

Lise’s coaching style is simple and powerful. Very few, but well targeted questions. She helped me observe some behaviours I have and see how long term planning was helpful in giving me an overall sense of direction. As a result of coaching with Lise, I became more focussed on my objectives and better able to prioritise. She helped me figure out what to do next – both professionally and in my personal life.

Während der Schwangerschaft und mit der Geburt meiner ersten Tochter stand zunächst vieles Kopf. Nicht nur wie es beruflich weitergehen soll, in meiner Hauptanstellung und der Nebentätigkeit als Selbstständige, die ich mir gerade begonnen hatte aufzubauen. Hinzu kam nun auch die Veränderung von einer Partnerschaft hin zur Familie.

Lise hat mir dabei geholfen diese Felder, auf denen Veränderungen bevorstanden, integriert und in Verbindung zu sehen. Aus einem kompletten Durcheinander im Kopf wurde ein klarer und zufriedenstellender Plan, den ich mit Freude immer noch “abbarbeite” und auch stetig weiterentwickle. Denn ein Plan bleibt nur ein roter Faden, an dem immer neue Abzweigungen sich auftun. Die erfordert Mut zur Entscheidung und dazu auch mal etwas Neues auszuprobieren. Diesen Mut und das nötige Selbstvertrauen haben mir Lises Coaching Stunden nachhaltig vermittelt.

I am extremely grateful for the experience of being coached by Lise. She is truly amazing and inspiring. And she cares. And she delivers. No matter how messed up the client, how difficult they find it themselves to formulate their issue. She sees the light and she takes you there.

The coaching sessions with Lise helped me to show “true colours” to the team, management and clients. Lise’s coaching style is very focused, practical, and effective as she digs out the solutions from you so they are very natural to use. Lise, I am glad that I met you!

I see Lise standing on some very green grass, flowers are coming up by her feet. On one arm, she’s pulling the things that mean most to her. She is pulling them with all of her might. But there is the big Lise smile on her face because it looks effortless, because it feels effortless. It takes work, but it is work she enjoys.

Lise is a very thoughtful and insightful coach who will listen and question at the right moment and in the right manner. Sore points were well addressed through her well-timed questions and excellent reflection. Coaching with Lise made it easier for me to move on and manage these issues. The way she summarised and reflected on the journey made together worked particularly well for me.

Lise’s coaching style perfectly meets my requirements as it is very focused. In a very co-creative way Lise guides me to peel the onion skins down to the core. But it doesn’t stop at this point: Once the core is crystallised, Lise enables me to canalise my energies to deal with it in a productive way. Her coaching style made me refine my techniques to ask the right questions in the right order which helps a lot when tackling challenges of any kind. What also worked particularly well for me is Lise’s true-to-life advice for various communication scenarios. Getting trained by Lise on these communication skills significantly improved my every-day work as a Sales Representative and Team Leader. But I would miss out the best thing by restricting it to only these two roles: Lise’s coaching style is universal with a positive impact on my business, my work, my life.

Lise is a high caliber professional with a heart and a soul aside from all the projects and busy work and global lifestyle she is balancing with grace all at ones. She is passionate about the work and projects she gets involved with. She goes the extra mile in understanding matters deeper and in their full complexity. I have observed Lise especially in the areas of change management and coaching of individuals and groups to higher performance and an open, transparent, productive culture. She is great in working with people. Her empathetic listening skills are of supreme quality and feel natural and intuitive. Lise has a “go getter” mentality, is ambitious, creative, flexible, resourceful while learning constantly and on the fly, like her recent somatic education she undertook. She has great intellectual horsepower and the experience of a fast and precise executor. She is courageous and her life is guided by a set of great values of which I have experienced integrity, honesty, transparency and fair play. I value Lise as a professional, colleague and a friend and will make myself available in case more details are needed for a recommendation.
