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.
Owner, boas – transforming leadership
I’ve done a lot of workshops before – I enjoyed being given the room to find my own answers, to find a little bit of me, a little bit of all of us and explore what leadership means for everyone. It flows and whatever comes up is ok. Big thanks to you Lise for being me with on this journey. Now I feel full of thoughts and information and really happy to feel thankful.
Lise showcased authenticity and leadership and delivered an event that I can see standing by itself, but also as the start of a series of workshops, something I would personally be very interested in.
I’ve done a lot of workshops and this is definitely the best I attended.

You created a truly special atmosphere that allowed me to be more relaxed, to open up and go into themes really deeply.
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.
I am truly surprised as to how much I am taking away from these two days. You gave us time to think about what we are doing and put it into practice to
consolidate our learning. We had a tremendous group and a very trustful atmosphere. Right from the beginning I knew I’ve come to the right place.
Lise’s coaching style is empathetic, gentle, innovative and warm. I enjoyed drawing and being given the opportunity to express myself in a visual / physical way. I valued her authenticity and how she allows the coaching space and time to flow at the client’s own space.

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.

Merci encore pour m’avoir beaucoup aidé à avancer dans mes pensées. Je te suis très reconnaissant de m’avoir fait découvrir les vertus du coaching, car, même en tant que coachee, apprendre la méthode est un exercice en soi, et cet exercice m’a semblé très naturel. Par définition, l’une des particularités du coaching est que, en principe, le coach ne donne pas son point de vue personnel mais aide plutôt le coachee à déterminer le sien. Bien que cela soit différent des rapports dont j’ai l’habitude, tu as su transmettre cette logique à la fois efficacement et en douceur! J’ai également apprécié ta capacité à faire certaines exceptions à cette règle lorsqu’il semblait utile d’ajouter une idée plus personnelle pour faire avancer l’échange. Là aussi, j’ai été sensible à ta capacité de partager ton expérience sans jamais imposer une solution prédéterminée. Les questions à la fin de chaque séance étaient très utiles pour nourrir ma réflexion. Enfin, je te suis reconnaissant de ta flexibilité concernant la durée des séances. Et bien sûr, last but not least, ces séances n’auraient pas mené aux mêmes résultats si nous n’avions pas établi un rapport de confiance aussi rapidement.

I had the opportunity to take the MBTI assessement with guidance of Lise. I was impressed how Lise managed to personalise such a standardised test and apply it to my personal and professional situation. I found this really helpful to structure my thinking and better understand how I prefer to behave and decide.

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.
Working with Lise I was able to identify blocks, clarify objectives, and set out achievable goals that enabled me to significantly move forward in my business. Her coaching style is intuitive. She was able to ask the questions that allowed me to dive into the blocks that were holding me back from progress, and hearing more than just the words – which lead to deeper understanding of behaviors. Additionally, Lise challenged me to work outside of my comfort zone in different coaching modalities than I was used to. As a result, I am beginning to trust my instincts more, focus on specific goals, and gain confidence to work in new areas. Most importantly, I have made a fundamental shift in my view of my own coaching practice, moving from hobby to career.
Professional Life Coach and Owner of Kick it Up Coaching
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.

Notre travail a vraiment été en profondeur, car il continue de me transformer.
Lise became my coach at a time where I was asking myself a lot of questions, feeling overwhelmed by the infinity of possibilities. I appreciated Lise’s ability to listen, her empathy and her professionalism. She is creative, relying on both theoretical frameworks and innovative methods. We had a holistic approach, taking into account emotions and body language.
Lise’s help was crucial on three key elements: First, she helped me live my emotions in a “fluid” manner. Second, she helped me position myself in the midst of political games and inspired me to become more assertive while remaining true to my values. Finally, she helped me to clarify my next career steps and overall life purpose. We worked in depth, and for the first time I allowed myself to think big, and to imagine possibilities that I would have otherwise moved aside. Today, I feel incredibly more confident, and ready to release my full leadership potential with serenity!
I am very glad that I could engage in a positive change dynamic with the support of Lise. Also, I know that when I am confronted with new challenging situations, I can turn to more intensive sessions with Lise, as I trust we have built a long term relationship.
Thank you very much Lise!
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!
Nach einer langen Reise durch viele Arten der Persönlichkeitsrestrukturierung, habe ich beim Coaching mit Lise endlich mein Medium und Trampolin gefunden! Back to the roots und von dort mit Schwung und Elan in immer wieder neue Höhen aufschwingen…
Lise coacht auf eine sehr intuitive und persönliche Art. Sie unterstützt mit ihrem ruhigen, analytischen Wesen dabei, die eigenen Energiequellen wieder aufzuspüren. Und auch den daraus erwachsenden reißenden Fluss begleitet sie souverän, ohne die Wellen überschlagen zu lassen.
Wir starteten mit dem gemeinsamen abrunden privater Wellengänge und entrümpeln verstopfter Abstellgleise, um später mit gleichbleibender Effektivität an Business- Themen zu zentrieren und fokussieren. Ein ganz besonderer Schub entstand noch einmal nach dem “WorkPotentialDay”. Unterstützt von 360° Analyse, GALLUP StrengthsFinder und MBTI habe ich 2 Tage sehr individuelle und abwechslungsreiche In- und Outdoorsessions genossen. Die daraus erwachsene Klarheit und Struktur für meinen weiteren Weg waren einzigartig!
Ich danke Lise, für die unvergesslichen Momente des schwindenden Ballastes und ihre wunderbar warme und raumgebende Persönlichkeit, die alles so einfach macht.
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.
Leadership Consultant and Coach
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.

Lise combines a big heart with an exceptional ability to think. She has high-level business acumen and a down-to-earth sense of the human factor. In coaching situations she displays both sensitivity and powerful analysis. I have no hesitation in recommending her as a coach.
