If you’re empowered, you can also be empowered to lead. Whether as a specialist in your field or as a manager of a team. To help professionals become more confident in their roles, we offer three types of coaching programmes:

  • Executive coaching
  • Post-placement coaching
  • Coaching-on-the-job

Paula Verheul has completed a number of training courses, including systemic work with family constellations and organisational constellations at the Bert Hellinger Institute, and training with a focus on executive coaching. She combines this knowledge with over 20 years’ experience in executive search. Paula creates a tailor-made coaching programme for each professional.

Integrity is always paramount during the programme. Coaching sessions are confidential. There are Chinese walls between our coaching practice and our executive search work.

Executive Coaching

Executive coaching focuses on achieving your best position to strengthen your personal and professional leadership.

Post-placement coaching

We value not only placing professionals in challenging positions, but also keeping them there. Therefore, coaching is integral to our services.


For professionals who want to develop in a speciality or need to improve their expertise, we offer on-the-job coaching.

Executive coaching

In our personal conversations with professionals, a current issue or situation often comes up that needs more attention. We offer executive coaching with Paula Verheul as an opportunity to go deeper. It aims to strengthen personal and professional management skills. She is results-oriented, focused on the here and now and likes to look at people and organisations through a “systemic lens”.

A coaching process typically consists of 6 sessions of 1-1.5 hours each and is completed over an average of 3 months. Paula’s approach is analytical, inviting and unique. All information is confidential and will never be shared with third parties.

Post-placement coaching

Once a position has been filled, we maintain contact with the client and the candidate to ensure a soft landing. This communication is crucial in evaluating how the collaboration works in practice. We offer a coaching programme to professionals after the completion of a permanent search. This consists of three interviews with Paula Verheul or our external coach and aims to facilitate smooth integration with the new employer. It keeps us involved with the professional and allows us to guide any adjustments or improvements to make the match a lasting success.


For professionals who want to get more out of their job, we offer on-the-job professional coaching. Depending on the question, learning requirement and type of organisation, we match an experienced specialist with the professional. Hands-on coaching can take place in or out of the office, in person or digitally. This creates a steep learning curve and gives the professional very concrete development tips.

We have specialist coaches in various areas such as spokesperson and external relations (finance, crisis), public affairs and stakeholder management, internal and change communication and content management. Our specialist coaches come from different sectors, from FMCG to healthcare, with experience in listed and international companies and (semi) government. This means we can always make a relevant and appropriate match.
