About

Alexandra

After having finished a very unsupportive high school in Brussels, which focused on the weaknesses rather than the strengths, I studied Political Sciences and specialised in what was then called “Developing countries”. I worked as a lobbyist to the European Institutions and then took off to achieve one of my dreams: working in Latin America. Faith had it that it was in Colombia that I would work for the government and more specifically a Youth Program called “Colombia Joven”. I also toured the country to give a conference “Porque creer en Colombia ?” to help people reconnect with their pride in their country and ultimately believe in their power to be the change the country needed. Certainly one of the most enriching experiences in my life.

While working afterwards as a manager for an Australian company, I felt a deep need to go back to what I studied for and joined the European Commission in the field of Human Rights. A wonderful experience where I had the chance to achieve something meaningful to this day for many people around the world. On a trip to Lebanon, I realised that although I liked what I was doing, I was missing the closer contact with people and decided to resign upon my return and establish myself as a trainer and coach (you can view her full curriculum on LinkedIn) my side education and passion.

I am passionate about people, helping, learning and transmitting knowledge. I have been trained at the Tony Robbins Leadership Academy 25 years ago in San Diego and have continued my education in the US with NLP teachers Robert Dilts & Judith DeLozier at the University of Santa Cruz, with Tal Ben Shahar, Harvard’s former Professor on the Science of Happiness and Maria Sirois Psy.D Resilience teacher in Massachusetts. I have followed many other trainings such as Transactional Analysis (Brussels), Brief Systemic Therapy at the Bateson Institute (Liège), Non-violent communication with Marshall Rosenberg (Brussels) …  I have applied what I learned to myself, sometimes with success, sometimes not, and with the support of therapy and supervision I learned from my failures and raised my self-awareness. My wish is to put my expertise and experience at your service. Your progress is my greatest reward.

I was born and raised in Belgium, where I live. I have multicultural origins (half Serbian, half Dutch) and lived around the world mainly to learn languages. Today I speak six languages and coach and train in French, English, Spanish and Italian. I also train bilingual groups where the training is in English but people can intervene in French and Dutch. With a deep understanding of multicultural environments and fluency in six languages, I can bring a global perspective and stay away for unnecessary cultural biases.

I am known for my integrity, energy and contagious enthusiasm. My dynamic training style is infused with passion and zest, making the learning journey enjoyable and impactful. I have helped individuals and teams achieve tangible, sustainable improvements in their leadership through their emotional intelligence, leading to enhanced relationships and satisfaction.

In the last 20 years I have trained and coached hundreds of people from Morocco to the US, passing through Italy, Spain, France, the UK and Belgium where I live. I train and coach teams and individuals in Multinationals, SMEs and the European Institutions where I am part of the Female Talent Development trainers pool with outstanding results.

Some of you might be thinking while reading this: how lucky she is, and have the insane hallucination that all of this was easy … It wasn’t and it still is challenging. Read “the why” if this puzzles you.

When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as tough you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time when that tide will turn.{ Harriet Beecher Stowe }
