Hi, I’m Gizem.
I started my career as a lawyer. After specializing in competition law, earning two master’s degrees, and working for 10 years in big international law firms in both Istanbul and Brussels, I decided to make a career change and follow my passion for coaching.
I got certified from Precision Nutrition (Canada), and Ecole Internationale de Coaching (Belgium), with the goal of supporting people in reorganizing and reorienting their lives and careers. After becoming a professional coach, I started my own company in Belgium, offering my coaching and training services in English, French, and Turkish.
As a career and business strategy coach specialized in stress management and productivity, I work with individuals and teams wishing to increase performance. I am dedicated to helping business professionals achieve their short and long-term goals. I value entrepreneurial spirit, growth mindset, and mindful routines. I believe in critical questioning, continuous learning, and innovative thinking.
I am grateful for the opportunity to draw on my experience to help others transform their lives and find the strength to leave their comfort zone to align their lives and careers with their values. If you would like to learn more about how we can work together, please contact me to discuss further. I’m looking forward to hearing from you!
‘‘Coaching is an art, and it’s far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. It can also mean unlearning our fix-it habits.’’
– Brené Brown
‘‘If you have more than 3 priorities, you have no priorities.’’
‘‘Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.’’
