Who am I?

I am a professional coach and trainer. I have been working in the area of management development since 1994, working with companies such as Apple Computer, Andersen Consulting, and Zeneca Agrochemicals. Since 2001, I am an independent consultant, and since 2010 I am also an owner of Dynamic Sphere, Ltd.

Over the last twelve years, I worked with many clients, such as Ogilvy&Mather, Telefonica O2, DeloitteCZ, Aspire Sports Brno, Ceska sporitelna, CSOB, Synthon, Mecaplast, Philip Morris, Russia, DB Schenker, and many others.

In 2010, I got PCC (Professional Certified Coach) accreditation, which is due to my renewal this year. I teach in the international coaching programme The Art and Science of Coaching, not only in the Czech and Slovak Republic, but also in other central European countries.

Very simply said, my main goal is to make business a better place for living.

I love training.

I have been working intensively with businesses as a trainer since 2000. Since, I train over 90 days / year, which means I have trained over 5.400 training hours with around 500 managers / year. I use coaching principles in all my trainings and my motto is that my trainigs become a true experience for the participants.

I often work with clients both as a trainer and as a coach on various assignments and project, both short and long term. You can see my training porfolio in the Service section.

As a coach:

• I work with businesses, largely with small and medium, or operational teams in big companies,
• I help my clients to create long term compelling visions, missions, and strategies,
• I help managers to become great leaders, and create excellent teams,
• I help clients to overcome barriers and obstacles searching with them for the best possible solutions, looking out of box their personal strategies and skills
• I assist clients in development of trust and self-confidence introducing more joy into their environment and teams.

I also provide my clients with life and family coaching when needed.
