Alexandra is an amazing coach! It has been a real pleasure to work with her over the last 5 years. She has a huge intuition about people, she is a golden mine in terms of (scientific!) knowledge about positive psychology/emotional intelligence/leadership, and she is such an energetic and warm person. With her, I have addressed uncomfortable topics, I have learned a lot about myself, I have gone through tough times, I've become a better leader, and above all I have learned how to keep growing. I quote her very often with my team 🙂 Thank you so much Alexandra !!

VP Energy at N-SIDE, Belgium

Alexandra prepared and delivered a great end-of-year team building event for my team! After long periods of teleworking during COVID, and a big number of new colleagues arriving in the meantime, we needed a meaningful and light way to re-connect with each other. Alexandra helped us do exactly that in a fun, light and interactive way. Some colleagues have shared with me that this was the best team building event they have had so far. Thank you, Alexandra! Wishing you a great start of 2023!

Stefka Dzhumalieva

Head of Unit, European Commission

Alexandra conducted a workshop for Waters as part of our sales management development program. She was an outstanding facilitator; her engaging and energetic style eliciting broad and enthusiastic participation from her audience. Her meticulous preparation and sound advice contributed to a very successful and productive experience for our management team.

Mike Harrington
Vice President, European & Asia Pacific Operations at Waters, USA

Alexandra is able to quickly gain the trust of a team through a pragmatic approach and an engaged and direct interaction style. I particularly appreciate her candid reflection and personal feedback after team meetings, which allowed me to get a better understanding of individuals in my team.

Dirk De Naeyer
Vice President Clinical Operations at Johnson & Johnson, Belgium

Alexandra is a great coach: direct and to the point but friendly and witty; very professional and efficient, but establishing from the first moment a relation of proximity and a feeling of honesty and trust. Alexandra helped me preparing myself for a demanding set of professional interviews in the context of a senior management post selection procedure. This was a great and successful experience, and Alexandra’s diagnosis and precious advice produced immediate and tangible results. Alexandra proved to be great at quickly spotting my strengths but also what could stand in the way of them deploying their maximum impact. She helped me being more focussed, articulate, simple and spontaneous. As I think she reminded me, quoting Oscar Wilde: “Be yourself, everyone else is taken”. But Alexandra’s magic is that she empowers you to be a greater yourself. What more could we expect to make a difference?

Fiorenza Provenzano

Manager @ Deloitte Australia.

Alexandra’s coaching has greatly supported my professional and personal development. Alexandra has enabled me to tap into my needs and areas of personal development, with a friendly, kind yet firm support where I always felt safe and encouraged. Thank you Alexandra for always believing in our work and for your warm, determined and impeccable advice which has been so pivotal in developing my professional and personal ambitions.


Director – European Commission

Working with Alexandra, is like putting a mirror in front of us, showing things you don’t see. With her wonderful toolbox, she gives the energy to strengthen our team, to move forwards, to cross bridges, to understand the complexity of relationships and to help accomplish our personal and professional goals. She definitively is an added value to our management.

Sibylle van Havre
CFO at Anglo Belge Special Risks, Belgium

Alexandra has a true vocation for coaching, she will push all the right buttons to make you improve on a professional scale. She is a sensitive listener and tailor-makes advice on the basis of what she hears and sees. With the right mix of diplomacy and straight-talk, she will accompany you on the road to reach your career goals. The best bit is that you will do all this while also having fun and discovering new sides of yourself. I would whole-heartedly recommend Alexandra for any professional coaching.


Head of Unit – European Commission

Alexandra is a coach and trainer who provides highly professional support to employees, managers and directors. I've been lucky enough to benefit from her knowledge and her constructive, methodical support on a number of occasions and in a variety of formats, including training courses, masterclasses, coaching and upward feedback. Talking of feedback, receiving feedback as a director is a gift, but it can also be frightening. With Alexandra's guidance, the feedback I receive from my team is a real gift: it's structured, caring, authentic and constructive. If you want to develop a feedback culture, work on soft skills as an individual or in your organisation, Alexandra is the person you need.

Pauline Martin

Strategy and Marketing Director, Edenred, Belgium

Alexandra led us through several courses of the Female Talent Development Programme of the European Commission. The course I followed with her was called the ``Leadership Lab`` which included training and coaching. Myself and others were so fortunate to do this training with Alexandra since she demonstrated outstanding capabilities, and an impressive expertise and experience during the 5-day course programme. She is one of the most exceptional learning professionals that I encountered during my 30 years of professional career and she shared and continues to share knowledge with the participants beyond the programme to help us continue grow. Thanks to her guidance and incredible dedication and passion, we developed a suitcase full of relevant learnings to implement leadership skills founded on our core European values such as equality and equity, democracy, fairness, transparency, inclusiveness and growing together. Key learnings are that succesful people leaders of today are those that are common goal-oriented, embrace ``growing together``, creativity, open communication and bi-directional feedback, demonstrate a high sense of humanity, positivity and use motivational, responsible leadership styles. Together with those enrolled in this course we continue to implement our core European values and these key learnings when leading our EC teams.

Sandra Coecke

Team Leader Emerging Health Threats, European Commission,Italy

The experience Alexandra offered me was really different. First there is energy, real energy! But she was also way more convincing than the other coaches I met. The reason is that Alexandra truly believes in what she teaches us and applies it over and over across her different trainings, giving that content purpose and power. I admire the way she manages to guide people in finding solutions by themselves, thanks to her active listening and some well placed questions. If I'm writing this recommendation now, it's because Alexandra truly cares. She cares about people, their development and their wellbeing. If you want to grow, give her a go!

Bruno Cats

Head of Edge Team @ N-SIDE / Lead Software Engineer, Belgium

I had the opportunity to participate to some trainings and group coaching sessions with Alexandra. Even if the time spent with her adds up to 2-3 days I can say her mark is constantly present in my quest to become my best self.
Alexandra is highly skilled at what she does and with her unique style she’s able to help you become more aware of yourself and your surroundings by turning simple hunches or perceptions into concrete concepts. Something I really liked is her generosity in sharing the knowledge she has and the *why* behind what she tells you. Her ability to label things and provide you with actionable resources and exercises tailored for your personal growth makes every conversation with her worth a while!
I regularly surprise myself thinking about things I have learned with Alexandra and I am happy to feel better equipped to have the impact I wish for around me. So if you too want to invest in your professional or personal growth, don’t hesitate on reaching out to her!

Estefania Araujo Bayas

Senior Engineer N-Side, Belgium

I have followed two of Alexandra’s courses at the European Commission, one just before COVID times and the other one more recently, remotely. Both proved to be extremely useful and came at the right moment in my career evolution. I found them informative, full of practical take-aways and useful insights but, more importantly, very motivating and uplifting. After a session with Alexandra, be it in person or remotely, I get out energised and ready to move mountains. I like her communication style a lot and I particularly appreciate her take on leadership, vulnerability, courage and authenticity.


European Commission

Alexandra was the greatest coach ever for me. I met her in a collective training session but she made a real personal difference for me. She came into my life at a time of changes and allowed me to reveal long-lived difficulties which I had to face and accept and eventually make the best of. I met her from time to time over a one-year period and things matured and crystallised, opening up several key avenues for growth and blossoming of my personality. She was a real midwife for my brains!

Head of Unit, European Commission

I was more than lucky to be coached several times by Alexandra, those amazing coaching sessions had a positive impact on my personal and professional development journey.
Alexandra possesses an exceptional talent for fostering self-awareness and emotional intelligence. Under her guidance, I've gained a deeper understanding of my own emotions and how they influence my interactions with others. This newfound awareness has empowered me to navigate challenging situations with greater empathy and effectiveness.
Moreover, Alexandra has honed my skills in providing feedback, making me a more effective communicator. Her practical strategies and insights have had a profound impact on my ability to deliver constructive feedback, resulting in improved teamwork and communication within my professional circles.
Thank you, Alexandra, for being an instrumental part of my journey towards personal and professional growth.

Raoudha Lagha

N-Side, Belgium

What struck me most about Alexandra was her cultural diversity and emotional intelligence, which enabled her to integrate and communicate easily with different cultures (at one point we all had the impression that she was Moroccan). Personally, I've had the opportunity to take part in two training courses run by Alexandra as part of the Soft Skills programme, and to tell you the truth, I've gained a lot of awareness from them that I'm trying to apply in my professional and personal life:
- Having anchors in life, a tool for facilitating change and/or pre-learning new behaviours.
- Detecting a narcissistic pervert and the strategy to avoid being manipulated by them
- Don't see failure as a failure, but rather as a learning process
- Every day I try to highlight 3 of my happiest moments ....
I'm grateful to you because I've been able to be autonomous on the above points and as you always said Alexandra: ``the best way to be of service to others is to make them autonomous and not put them in a situation of dependence on you.
I hope to see you again in future training sessions, inchallah.
Thank you, Alexandra,

Yassine Zahhaf

Program Controls Senior Manager – OCP group – Morocco

Alexandra is throughly inspiring, energising and passionate. She is remarkable in many ways and a rare pearl. Alexandra gives the best of herself to make your own learning a great journey of personal development. She was my trainer for a management course on emotional intelligence and leadership. In my 20 years at the EU, she really stands out as a trainer. She is blessed with an astonishing EQ and truly cares. She has been a catalyst for my own transformative growth process - which is ongoing. I am immensely grateful to her. Alexandra is also extremely knowledgeable and relies on an amazing repertoire of books from which she quotes abundantly. The most recent research on neuroscience, neuro-plasticity and NLP for growth are shared with deep conviction. Alexandra makes from story-telling a true art and fun which enhances learning through real-live and juicy examples. Enjoy the ride!

Mieke Vanderstraeten

Professional Coach – China expert – EU Official

I have worked with Alexandra on a number of projects and have known her in a professional capacity for approximately 2 years.
In particular she worked for our company designing and delivering Performance Management and Talent Management training to all our senior managers throughout our Group.
Alexandra is a strong, confident and extremely competent individual who not only has a very good level of academic ability but also has a very high level of emotional intelligence. She is also extremely charismatic. Not only is she an excellent trainer in terms of her delivery but she also has the ability to work flexibly and adapt the training to the needs of the Group, to develop a theme without notes and to have her audience totally focused.
Alexandra also worked closely with senior management on developing and delivering sales training to our sales teams and again also received very good feedback with individuals gaining more confidence generally and particularly in closing deals.

Charlotte White
Director at Executive Progress Ltd – UK

Working with Alexandra was just what I needed at this exact moment of my career. She provided me with invaluable advice on how to tackle my career and leadership challenges and, most importantly, she made me realize where my potential lies and to exploit it. All this with a clear focus on values, as a key element of the learning process that allowed me to continue to progress towards achieving my goals. Alexandra is moreover the perfect example of how this process can be fun, always with a smile and great dose of good humour. Not a surprise that I have followed several trainings and coaching sessions with Alexandra and will certainly continue to do so in the future! Хвала вам!


Head of Unit – European Commission

Alexandra is a beautiful person, a great coach and a tremendously efficient consultant. We have been working with Alexandra for more than three years now on essentially two levels: personal development and team dynamics. Her impact on us as persons and on the company’s teams has been very important.
Company culture, personal development, team building, mission and vision, inter-personal skills, leadership… For any of those issues (and many more), Alexandra is a reference.

Cedric van den Abeele
Managing Director at Anglo Belge Special Risks, Belgium

I have met Alexandra Karlović in the frame of the Lab Management Training offered by EU platform to the European Aviation Safety Agency EASA managers.
Since the very first encounter, I have been very impressed by the extraordinary capabilities of bringing a large group of people from different Agencies and Organizations attending the course to have a much better awareness of themselves: a deeper awareness at personal level and at external environment level as well.
She has shown a brilliant ability to help, through well balanced theoretical/practical sessions, each one of us to identify and modulate our managerial styles and ensure the best impact, engagement on our teams as actual and/or future managers. Furthermore, the most valuable experience with Alexandra is related to coaching group sessions (...)
(...) Overall I felt that I grew and developed tremendously becoming much more mature as responsible section manager and even more as a more conscious adult able to solve complex issues without breaking the authenticity of the relationships at work and at personal level.

European Aviation Safety Agency EASA, Germany

Alexandra is a wonderful person to meet! Her dynamism, her experience, her personality, her ability to listen, her desire to get to know people and to pass on her knowledge make her an inspiring and energising coach! Thanks to her approach, the managers in our company were able to get to know each other and forge links during a very dynamic teambuilding session. If you want to approach things in a different and challenging way, she's the ideal person!

Lydie Barbeaux
Assistante de Direction, Less Editions de l’Avenir Presse, Belgium

It's my pleasure and honor to endorse you as an expert trainer who could easily communicate and deliver the required training objectives.
I have experienced an interesting CSP program with you and you managed to achieve the program objectives successfully and interestingly.
You have a pleasant sense of humor and excellent cultural background which make it easier for you to capture any one mind and heart 🙂 This strong background helps you to put yourself in the shoes of everybody and transfer the information smoothly.
You also have an excellent capacity of patience to clarify any misunderstanding points even several times.
You are such a nice person who is considered to be one of the best trainer I have met.
I wish for you the best of luck ever.

Mourad Abdel Ghany

Chemical Deputy Manager @ Veolia Water Technology, Egypt.

Alexandra shared with Frontex staff a fantastic inspirational presentation during our online Christmas party. High quality content, fun, sparkling, full of warmth and empathy are just the first words coming to my mind when getting back to those nice memories. We just felt all lucky to be there. During our first preparatory meeting, Alexandra directly understood what I was looking for and I felt we are completely on the same page right from the start! If you do not work at least once with Alexandra, you actually really miss something, and your company too.

Clotilde Simonis-Gorska

Internal Communications at Frontex, Poland.

``What's your stretch, Koen``, you asked me. Without having met you I would have never asked the question. The answer changes day by day and that is the nicest to it.
I have taken a new route. No GPS, map or boundaries present. Only a willingness to do the right things right. There is more passion in my work, with the mind and the belly starting to act as one. It's a long road, yet I would have never imagined I could actually start to like the travelling. You made me a discoverer . Today even the sky no longer has a limit. Thanks Alexandra !

Koen De Landtsheer
Director Customer TouchPoints & ERPC, Sony, Belgium.

In today's world, with so many coaches on the market, it can be difficult to choose the right coach. I found the right coach in Alexandra, who has a very deep and extensive knowledge of coaching and much more. What's more, she's a beautiful, engaging personality. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Anne Devouche
Head of Unit, DG Human Resources, European Commission

My recommandation could be written by the 15 people attending the recent CSP training she managed in Brussels. Feedback of all my colleagues are excellent : excellent relation, trustable, challenging, honesty and integrity, helping attitude. Personally it was my 3rd CSP training in 16 years and it was again a pleasure to attend not only because of the content but also because of the way she managed the training. Thank you Alexandra: you reached my people and they’ll apply the CSP.

Sales Manager – Chemical Applications, BWT, Belgium

I have had the chance to follow different training from Alexandra, from management/coaching trainings to communication. And I enjoyed every moment of it.
Alexandra is an amazing trainer. In all different sessions she adapts to the audience in a great way, and manages to make you progress, think, challenge yourself... evolve. I definitely recommend hiring Alexandra. And you will also see that besides being an outstanding trainer, she is an extremely nice person, which only adds to the experience.

Matthieu Dupont
EMEA Supply Chain Director, DRiV, Belgium

Alexandra is an amazing teacher and coach, the best who I happened to cross at the yearly management training. She is inspiring, without being artificial, she gives great tips, positive critics and really helps! It is not easy to find somebody like her!

Maria Zuber
Head of Unit, DG ECHO, European Commission

I had the opportunity to meet Alexandra during a training organized by my company. In the meantime I did another one, and also some coaching sessions. Recently, Alexandra gave us a lecture as part of the International Women's Day.
All the training I attended were as a group and I admire her immense ability to identify the specific needs of each person in the group and to adapt the message and communication. One of the aspects that I appreciate most about Alexandra is her capability to make me see things from a different perspective, to make me challenge the standard mode of action and to create new habits and new neuronal circuits.
Alexandra has an immense knowledge in different areas and bases her explanations on the scientific research of several authors (which is important for someone like me who has a scientific background). Spending a few hours with Alexandra is equivalent to reading several books and keeping the relevant information.
Thanks to all her experience, advice and especially to that little seed she can always plant in my brain, my professional (and personal) life has changed and improved immensely. Creating new habits, facing some fears and leaving the comfort zone requires some effort and courage, but everything is possible with the right tools and structure. As Alexandra says, the good news is that our brain is plastic!

Rita Meirinhos
Senior Consultant N-Side

Alexandra's expertise is of immense help, both to organically grow a people-centric structure at an organization level, and to individual persons to develop and hone skills that are needed for them to blossom in an organization.
I have attended alexandra's group coaching cafe sessions, which included continuous feedback sessions. I benefitted from the collective learnings as a group, as well as having alexandra's individualized attention. Alexandra has a unique ability to guide one through their ultimate goal, including celebrating the achievements one makes along the way to achieve such goals.
I thank alexandra for the deep dive that we did, which involved a little digging, soul searching, and I am happy to have a better understanding of what is important to me and how we get to my objective. Its been a delight being associated with alexandra 🙂

Divya Sreedhar
CPA, Risk Advisory Audit, N-Side

In my brief encounter with Alexandra on a training session regarding communication styles, she has left a lasting impression through her friendliness, her energy and her open-minded, interactive workstyle.
She put her talent of making people at ease within the training environment to good use, by motivating them to step out of their comfort zones, and learn/apply new techniques which can facilitate conflict resolution and negotiations.
An experience, which certainly made my colleagues and I question some of our professional reflexes.
What better education is there than the one generating a positive form of debate far beyond the training grounds?
