Coach – Brussels – Vanja Kovacevic
I am a professional certified coach trained in the International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited program, and my mission is to help professionals to release stress, find their path after the burnout, change their mindset, and become resilient so they can handle life challenges without being victims of circumstances. I also work with people facing transitional setbacks and cross-cultural challenges due to relocation into new environment and/ or culture.
Coaching is partnering with people to help them to move forward in life, set and achieve their goals, and to get them where they want to be. Coach mirrors you and helps you to find what is true for you, what are your true desires, where you need more clarity, what you still need to learn, and what is your unique and authentic expression in the world.
Although the filter of definitions and beliefs we hold is an important factor in shaping our realities; still nothing in our lives will ever happen without us taking an action in the right direction. Coaching helps you to see where you are, where you want to be and to bridge that gap by taking an action and creating a purposeful and happier life as a result. Coach help you see, understand, move forward and holds you accountable. This is done through a set of coaching tools, assessments, exercises, practices, and question-based conversations.
Coaching process starts with your commitment to yourself. You commit to unravel your inner authentic self, to discover what is holding you back, and to brighten your inner light and shine it outward. At the beginning of our work together, in our first session we will explore where you want to be, and we will create a strategy to get you there. We will also define a number of sessions needed to do so.
A bit about me: I am orientated to assisting people to live their full potential. I draw my competences from the coaching training as well as my rich first-hand experience in transitions, stress release, leadership, cross-cultural communication, setting up businesses, developing teams.
Before becoming based in Belgium, I have lived in Croatia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Portugal. I have been an internationally recognized lawyer for 16 years; I founded three companies on two continents, established and ran a regional law firm in Southeast Asia as its regional director, and I lead a multicultural team in three Asian countries. During my teenage years I lived through the war and was forced to relocate far from my family as a refugee.
Throughout my life I have been learning to accept adversities as a normal part of life and I have been building my resilience and a positive outlook to life.
Having courage to make radical changes in life for the purpose of learning and growth, living my truth authentically and unapologetically, as well as rising above all hardships that life brought me, I consider to be some of my greatest achievements in life. I am deeply committed to walking my talk and I want to help you find your own resilient and happy path too.
I practice online, in person in Brussels, and in English, Croatian & Serbian languages.
