How will I learn? What methods do you use? What approach do you have?

Experiential Learning

Experiential learning is the most efficient way for acquiring new skills that remain with you. You get concrete tools that you can immediately put into practice, while you also get to experience their impact on yourself. All our programs are based on experiential learning: this means we rarely use presentations and lectures in-class. The learning is done through a lot of practice and exercises where the participants learn by doing, observing, experiencing, self-reflection and feedback from their peers, which are essential for creating awareness and making an impact. Of course, handouts and materials are sent at the end of each module, but practice is the key.

Volcano® Coaching

Volcano® coaching is a holistic approach to doing coaching. We use this metaphor to refer to the sleeping power source of the untapped potential which we bring to life. For long-term results we discovered that self-awareness is the key element to help clients achieve goals. Anchoring the goals into a strong foundation ensures their fulfilment. All our 15+ years of experience of coaching are gathered in this powerful, modern approach to doing coaching. With very carefully chosen exercises and experiential learning you set a goal from knowing your true self and your values. From knowing what gifts and talents you have and with awareness of your dreams and visions you find the energy and power; and in this you find your motivation to reach your goals.


What you focus on grows! This is something that guides us as coaches and is also deeply rooted into the way we do training and into the flow of our coaching programs. As a coach you have unyielding faith into your client and see their greatness. You don’t need somebody to tell you what’s wrong, you grow when somebody gives you feedback on what you do good. We build on what is already there because you have the potential and the answer lies within you. As a participant in our program, you will deeply experience what that means and know that your uniqueness makes you the best coach you can be.

I was looking online for a guide to help me reach my potential. And I came across CoachConnect, which is an institute that helps you realize your dreams basically. Maria guided us through this workshop. I had a lot of ideas and did not know where to start from and with the help of this workshop and her coaching approach (which is basically asking questions, not giving advice; it’s more about guiding) I could unravel a bit of that chaos that was in my head. She helped very much through this workshop to give me a better idea on how to approach my goal, what to do first and where to go next and I think I might actually take some coaching sessions as well because I feel like I need a guide along the way to pursue my goals. And CoachConnect is precisely that, it guides you to reach your full potential and work even better than you already are to reach a higher level. When you feel like me: “There is so much more in me that I don’t know!”, Maria can bring it out. You should definitely check out their workshops and programs: you ca find a workshop for you, also if you want to become a coach yourself or you want to send your employees to a training because you think they can grow. It’s all about growth! And I think you never stop growing or learning in your life.

The free webinar I attended with the CoachConnect team was definitely a great experience that I highly recommend. I really rediscovered what coaching is all about, received useful information that can be applied in both professional and personal life, plus I had the pleasure of experiencing the role of a coach.

I participated to an introductory class in coaching and I am very grateful I got the chance to meet such nice people. We all had the chance to speak our mind and I personally enjoyed how much I could discover about myself and what does it take to set a goal and really stick to it. I recommend CoachConnect to anyone interested in self-development, meeting new people or even someone who's looking for an inspiration boost

What is coaching?

ICF (International Coaching Federation) defines coaching as a coaching as partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their personal and professional potential.

Coaching is about transformation, reaching goals, reflection and taking responsibility of the things you wish both from yourself and from the coaching relationship.

Who is coaching for?

Coaching is for people who want to gain clarity about what they want and who they are as individuals. It is for those who want to make changes in their lives and become self-aware.

What skills can I acquire?

What skills do you want to acquire?

Among the most important skills that a client acquires through coaching is self-awareness. Through coaching you become aware of the skills that you already posses and how you can use them more in order to achieve your goals.

The coach cannot tell you beforehand what skills you will acquire because it is you and not the coach, who has the answer to this question.

The coach guides you to find answers or solutions that work for you, that are realistic and motivating and on you will find them on your own.

Where can we quantify the skills that I acquire?

Establishing methods to quantify and measure success is part of the coaching process.

It is the responsibility of the coach to find together with the client measuring methods that are fit for the client’s objective and the client is responsible for the success.

How does a coaching session look like?/what happens in a coaching session?

This depends on how advanced the coaching relationship is and the level at which the client is. It is usually the client who brings a topic into discussion and de coach follows the client where they want to go.

The coach does this through listening, mirroring, paraphrasing, questions and various coaching tools.

How is coaching helpful?

Coaching helps us when we feel confused , stuck, when we don’t know for sure what we want or when we don’t know how to get there.

Coaching helps us to take specific actions which bring us closer to our dreams and through coaching we remove obstacles that could come in our way.
