Author Bio

As an ICF (International Coach Federation) MCC credentialed coach and certified coach supervisor, Julie's purpose in life is to help motivated people be at their best.

Julie is one of the most experienced executive coaches and leadership development facilitators in Europe with a career that started in the early 1990s. She's passionate about the transformational power of the coaching conversation itself, and her efforts to 'spread coaching far and wide' led her to get leaders and their teams coached, get leaders to coach, and get coaches coached (coaching supervision).

She is passionate about 'scaling'—getting more transformational coaching conversations to take place in this world, impacting the lives of people she'll never even meet. She supports coaches and coach supervisors to provide that quality work. And she also helps leaders develop a Coaching Leadership Style so that they can grow next-generation leaders—and scale their own leadership.

She uses a powerful coaching and feedback framework that she's developed over the years to help organizations create a coaching culture, resulting in employees proactively generating their own solutions and taking responsibility for results. This has ultimately led to increased organizational effectiveness, productivity and talent retention. She also supports leaders during significant transitions, helping them shift from operational to strategic, enhance their 'executive presence' and gravitas, communicate more effectively with (more) senior management and manage derailment behaviors.

A firm believer that connecting people and being connected is crucial, Julie manages a network of 100+ top quality and hand-picked executive coaches located around the world. In her own practice, she embraces diversity, having personally worked with thousands of individuals from 55+ countries, multicultural groups and teams, and professionals ranging from first-line managers to CEO. She is a also member of the American Chamber of Commerce's Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

Julie has a BA in Mathematics, and a Master in International Management with an emphasis in marketing. As well as holding the MCC credential from the ICF, she's certified as a Coach Supervisor via the Coaching Supervision Academy in London and has also taken on the role of Tutor for current certification programs. She is certified in over 25 psychometric instruments, including the Hogan Assessment Suite and The Leadership Circle.

She works in English and Dutch.

Originally from Minnesota, Julie has lived in The Netherlands for many years. She has also lived and worked in France, Norway, and Spain. She and her Dutch husband have two children in their early 20’s, and her free time is filled with family activities, fitness, running, cycling, piano, travel, cooking and baking, and socializing with friends.
