What people are saying about our executive coaching...


“The best thing that’s happened to me in my professional career. Coaching is about challenging sometimes uneasy truths about yourself. But if you choose to let go and dive into it without prejudice, you may find coaching a liberating and boosting experience – both for your professional and social life. And if it feels hard – well, it just probably means you’re doing it right."

Vice President & Managing Director for japan ans asia-pacific of a leading tech company:

"Michael has the ability to stand back, observe people and guide them to realizing solutions to their challenges. His ability to challenge the person while ensuring their comfort is amazing, and allows for remarkable breakthroughs.”





"I found Michael Bekins' coaching to be immediately beneficial and I leaned heavily upon his 'returning expat' experience to facilitate my successful transition. Michael is smart, thoughtful and caring and I found him to be an invaluable resource.”
