Coaching can be faster, better and easier

The core of good coaching is that you regain the hope, energy, and practical tools to be able to move forward. With help of the right people and method, this can be done in one (flexibly bookable) session. This allows more employees to make adjustments at an early stage of discomfort.
For example, think of:

  • Do not wait for the burnout to hit, but take action when you feel the uncomfortable itch, to remain productive, energetic and involved.
  • Untangle that knot quickly: what can and can’t I control? What is my share and responsibility, and what can I do to change the situation?
  • Speaking up instead of withdrawing into difficult situations.
  • Just that extra push to develop further and take the next step.

Yes, one session can really work

  • With an expert, experienced and independent discussion partner.
  • With a proven effective conversational method.
  • With reliable availability at short notice.
  • With the knowledge of both sides that this is one conversation in which you’re going to make change happen.

Frequently asked questions

How can one session be enough?

The aim of the session is to ensure that you can move on. That you can adjust in the direction you want to go.

We use our expertise to help you leverage your expertise.

Sometimes it is enough to be reminded of the skills you have, and how you can use them in the current situation. Sometimes you are missing information and skills that you need in this situation. We help you to clarify the situation. We can give advice and information. We will look together at how you can involve your surroundings. We discuss which concrete steps you can take after the session. Changes usually happen gradually and happen outside the session, not during it. One session can be enough to ensure that you can move on again.

For whom are the sessions suitable?

SST sessions are suitable for employees and managers who are in need of a personal and practical session about what is going on right now, fast. The sessions are solution- and action-focused. The sessions can be helpful for problemsolving as well as for developmental purposes.

This is good for the cleaner, the director, the manager and the administrative assistant.

Our coaches do not mediate between the employees and the organisation, but focus on what the employee themselfs can do to change the situation in the desired direction.

The sessions are therefore suitable for employees who want to take responsibility for their own development and solutions.

SST Coaching is not suitable for crisis situations. In the event of a crisis, please contact the crisis service. For more information see: Crisis service and crisis shelter.

Why a psychologist as coach?

The primary goal of both coaching and therapy is to make a person feel and function better. Our coaches are university-trained psychologists with extensive experience and further training. We choose this because we think it is important that our coaches have broad knowledge and can draw on many different models and instruments.

  • Bij beoordelingsgesprekken – Medewerkers zien vaak op tegen functioneringsgesprekken. One Session helpt hen hier juist kansen te zien.
What feedback does the organisation get from the sessions?

Once a week we mail the feedback from the week before. These are at least the 1 to 5 star ratings that staff give anonymously at the end of the session. If staff give permission, we also share the more extensive feedback from the sessions.

Depending on the agreements the organisation has with its employees regarding anonymity, we can also send a monthly overview of the sessions of the past month (date, first name and email address of the employee).

Towards the end of the package, we evaluate it with the organisation. In the meantime, we are also available for consultation and will gladly think along with you about how best to use the sessions in your organisation.

What if an employee wants a follow-up session?

The employer decides how many sessions are available per employee per year.

The aim of SST Coaching is to give you the insights and tools which you can use to further improve yourself (see “How can one session be enough?”).

Our advice is always to let the session sink in first. Change takes time and is a matter of practice, reflection and adjustment. It will therefore take some time before the effect of the session on the desired change is clear.
However, people often experience a sense of relief immediately after the session. This can make it attractive to book a new session quickly. Instead, we recommend that you talk to people around you about what is bothering you. People who have earned your trust. And, if they are colleagues, preferably colleagues who have no personal interest in the situation and can really be there for you.

Change is usually gradual, and happens mostly outside the session, not during. One session can be enough to ensure that the employee can continue.

Of course new questions and situations in which one needs support might arise.
Our advice is to offer employees a few sessions a year, and give directions about the frequency, for example: at least 4 weeks within two sessions.

Why videocalls?

We work with video calls because they allow us to schedule calls quickly and flexibly, regardless of location. It also reduces travel.
