I am Quasiba and I have been training and coaching various executives in leadership for over more than ten years. Focal points within my training and coaching sessions are leadership, effective communication and giving and receiving feedback. After training or coaching, participants are able to effectively manage and coach their team, in a way that suits them best.
In my training and coaching trajectory, I create a safe learning environment in which participants are challenged to dig deeper into their personal challenges. I explain theoretical models clearly and guide participants with humor, while they try out new behavior. During moments of reflection, participants evaluate their progress. If needed the program is adjusted on the spot, making sure it fits perfectly to what is needed at that moment.
I have a master’s degree in political science (1995) obtained at the University of Amsterdam (UvA). I majored in research and statistics and worked as a senior lecturer in these subjects for many years. First at the University of Amsterdam, later at Hotelschool The Hague. In 2006 I went back to the UvA to study psychology next to my job at Hotelschool the Hague. In 2011 I graduated with a focus on both social and clinical psychology.
At the Hotelschool The Hague I guided international managerial talent. All communication topics were discussed in my training courses: presenting, teamwork, having difficult conversations and of course leadership. All courses were taught in English. For six years I was chairman of the participation council at the Hotelschool. I turned out to be a constructive discussion partner to the board of directors and a powerful facilitator for the council meetings.
I started my own company in 2010 and I have been giving training and coaching commercially for numerous clients ever since.
I love hiking. Every walk is an adventure and the perfect way to have a conversation with yourself. In 2016 and 2017 I hiked the Pieterpad from Groningen to Maastricht in preparation for the mother of all hikes: a walk to Rome. In 2018 I completed the first part to Trier in Germany. The following year I picked up the trail again finally arriving at St. Peter's Square in Rome in 2019.
My long-awaited book about giving and receiving feedback will be released in 2021.
