Saskia Teppema

Since 1985 I've been working as a coach and trainer in the corporate world, in the government and in education. Contact with other people is the essence of my life. As a 16 year old I started teaching sailing. After the sports academy and a study in Dutch language and literature I taught in a high school in Leiden. I also started acting in plays with my students. The switch to become a coach in the corporate world felt very natural. My first client was the FBTO in Leeuwarden, where I gave a training about internal communications.

I'm a rich person. And mostly happy, which implies it doesn't always go very smoothly. I take on life in all its aspects, the joy, the beauty, but also the pain and the disappointments. With my own experiences I can be there for someone else. It makes me happy when other people find their strengths again, and have their organisations achieve more because of it.

"Saskia has tremendous knowledge of human nature. She could very quickly empathize with my situation and pinpoint the painful spot with great accuracy. On the one hand she can give you a completely different view of the situation, and on the other hand she can be a crystal clear mirror. I've learned a lot from her."
