As an independent Executive Coach and Alliance Professional, I have been working with clients from all over the world to help them improve their alliance skills and alliance results. In my coaching, I work mostly one-on-one or with teams. Both models are to learn and improve in alliance results, however they are not within reach for everybody. The new Alliance Mastermind blends those models and is available to everyone. The investment for this program is EUR 444,= per year (excl. VAT).

After joining, you will be invited to join a special Facebook group and website with information, tips, tools, and templates for you to improve your alliance skills and alliance results. Additionally, you will also find the free replay videos of the previous group coaching calls in this group. One of the other threads in this Facebook group will be for you to indicate what topics are most essential to you to achieve your results.
