Practice Manager & Lead Coach – Paul Diepenbroek
What has driven Paul to practice as a coach:
Paul is passionate about people growing through experiential and consciousness development. Paul enters into a coaching relationship with the purpose of creating the opportunity for his clients to explore the real possibilities that support their well-being, growth, and development in the organizational, professional and personal context, thereby impacting business performance. He has always believed in a coaching management style to build that relatedness so vital to an optimal experience of being at work and viably bringing about a higher return-on-management-effort. He, as a practicing coach, is able to “evangelize” this belief. Paul’s purpose is supported by his values of trust, purpose, integrity, authenticity, and equanimity.
Business Coaching Philosophy and Way of Working:
Paul is a business coach and holds the belief that coaching adds value only when aligned with tangible business success initiatives. Value is realized when the purpose, insights and behavioral changes experienced from coaching are focussed on improvements for the coachee(s) and the business, alike. Paul holds the belief that a continuous shift in business consciousness is possible if human capital growth and development is supported by mentoring and coaching.
Business consciousness coaching works on our unique perspective to create new possibilities for our business experiences. Consciously deriving meaning and value from our learned experiences in business creates the possibility for alignment with renewed purpose and agency. And, promotes values that persuade behavior that informs how we go about being in business.
Paul’s coaching approach follows a framework that provides perspective, process, and purpose. His preferred coaching model is a synthesis of well-established integrated experiential and integral coaching models. The framework (and model) appropriately and practically introduces experiential learning, integral vision, consciousness, and existential perspectives into a business coaching context.
