„ACC2B war für mich eine grandiose Möglichkeit, mich fokussiert, unkompliziert und effizient auf die ICF-Zertifizierung vorzubereiten. Silke und Clyde orientieren sich eng an den geforderten ICF Kernkompetenzen – ohne Schnickschnack und Hokuspokus bekommt man hier das Rüstzeug, um die Prüfung zum ACC zu bestehen. Und das völlig unabhängig von der eigenen Coaching-Methode. Durch das virtuelle Format ist der Prozess extrem einfach in den Arbeitsalltag zu integrieren – und als dichtes Paket aus Einzel- und Gruppenmentoring unschlagbar zeit- und kosteneffizient. Richtig grandios wurde die Sache aber durch die Mentorcoaches selbst: Die beiden eint langjährige Erfahrung, idealistischer Einsatz für Professionalität im Coaching und volles Engagment für ihre Kandidat(inn)en – ein echter Gewinn für die Weiterentwicklung meines eigenen Coachingstils. Weiter so!“
– Florian Prittwitz-Schlögl – München

„Das Mentoring Programm von Silke und Clyde ist sehr zu empfehlen! Es ist sehr gut und flexibel organisiert und strukturiert, genau was ich gebraucht habe, um neben meinem Geschäft und meiner Mutterschaft das Thema Zertifizierung angehen zu können: ich konnte mich auf den Inhalt konzentrieren und musste mich sonst um nichts kümmern. Silke und Clyde haben das Wissen und die Erfahrung, die man in diesem Moment braucht und können es gut und individuell vermitteln. Ihr Feedback und das von den anderen TeilnehmerInnen hat mir vieles über meinen Coaching Stil vermittelt, was ich selbst nicht sehen konnte. Dazu kam die Aufgabe, den Kollegen beim Live-Coaching Feedback zu geben. Dadurch habe ich die Kompetenzen nochmal aus einer anderen Perspektive eintrainiert und weitere aha-Momente erlebt. Bei der Produktion von Aufnahmen für die Prüfung konnte ich das Gelernte ausprobieren und durch die detaillierten Diskussion der Aufnahmen im Einzel Mentoring konnte ich neben weitere Entwicklungsmöglichkeiten auch Fortschritte feststellen, die durch das Programm ermöglicht wurden. Es hat Spaß gemacht, mich wieder dem Thema Coaching konzentriert zu widmen und ich fühle mich für den Zertifizierungsprozess sehr gut vorbereitet.“
– Dr. Maria Machón – Berlin

“As Director NET EXPAT Germany Silke was responsible for ‚my German clients‘. In an international environment with daily challenges linked to the Expat-World of global operating companies, she was the best I could hope for. Her approach to customers – companies as much as the family moving – was key as she understood both: the need for German ‚Gründlichkeit‘ and liability combined with the very individual needs of the people moving internationally. Time and quality was THE priority for her, and with a lot of creativity, dedication and passion, she always focused on customer-oriented solutions; Not only in business development but also as a coach: Having been an Expat herself, she perfectly understood how to prepare German Expats and their spouses for the personal and professional challenges of moving abroad, or help foreign expats settle in Germany. Silke focused on the opportunities for every single Expat and their partner on a professional and personal level, including dual career solutions and managing intercultural diversity at the workplace. Evaluations and oral feedback for both, her individual coachings as well as her intercultural trainings were always very good. At NET EXPAT internally, her leadership style and enthusiasm motivated and inspired the team, which greatly improved overall performance. She initiated and implemented projects with quality, customer orientation and economic viability in mind. Silke is very organized, good in meeting deadlines and successfully managing projects from beginning to end. Her very good communication, intercultural and virtual team working skills helped making the NET EXPAT colleagues throughout the globe, feel part of the team. Silke is equally an excellent networker and her outstanding business development and people skills have quickly led to very impressive growth rates for NET EXPAT in the German market. What can I say? The world is a small place – I hope to be able to work with Silke again!”

“Silke coached me during the preparation of my secondment transfer from Munich to London in 2009. She did an exceptionally great job as she is not only very competent and knowlegable in her area of expertise but also very passionate about providing best possible support to her clients. Amongst other things, we have worked on my strengths and weaknesses to identify the nature of a potential expatriation shock, and we have elaborated a stakeholder analysis for the secondment. This has been of great value to me as I could anticipate potential problematic areas in the new host country and discuss with Silke beforehand how to solve such issues. Silke’s personable, open and warm-hearted approach makes it very easy for her clients to feel comfortable and „in good and capable hands“.
– Michaela Rauchecker – London

“Silke was my coach during my repatriation process in Germany. She was culturally aware and very open minded, which are my Top 2 when I change countries. She has also the ability to support her clients in a variety of topics like change, work, life and relationships. Our sessions were full of humour and results. I would highly recommend her to anybody who is going through a transition or who is arriving in Germany.”

“Silke’s coaching style is to build the relationship with client so that the client feels comfortable, relaxed and safe. This is how I felt through the whole process. As well, Silke uses direct communiciation to bring awareness to light and choice(s) to action and accountability. Her style allowed me to open up and move me to action.
I was able to strengthen my leadership and coaching skills and competencies by working with Silke. Silke allowed my to gain more self confidence in the work that I am doing.
I admire and respect Silke as a coach and as a person. Silke brings confidence and compassion to her coaching. Silke’s relationship building is a strength and as a result she allowed me to bring my entire self to our conversations because I trusted her. She is truly a fantastic coach.”
