Slide 1

„Our team consists of very capable professionals. In addition to personal contributions, our goal was to develop the synergy and collaboration between each other so that we can make better use of each other's strengths, and be better and stronger in entirety. During team coaching sessions, Haide helped us to better understand what kind of teamwork is value-creating teamwork (that is to say not just delegating), and how to develop that. Haide is very open-minded, and in using practical exercises, we have definitely taken several steps forward. This journey as well as our cooperation with Haide will continue.“

Partner, Law Firm Sorainen

Slide 2

„Our paths collided already while working at Elion where I got to experience how extremely professional and kind-hearted Haide is as a person as well as a coach. Therefore, it was only natural to call Haide for help when we needed to build different teams at Nortal. And it was clearly a successful choice. Haide can structure processes well, combine elements of training and team development as well as implement the best coaching practices. In doing so, she has a very delicate touch, without drawing too much attention to herself.
I am ready to take the same path with Haide again also in the future.“

Oleg Shvaikovksy

Member of the Board, Nortal

Slide 3

„During our very first meeting with Haide, we were able to map the challenge that needs to be tackled, a plan of action on how to achieve solutions and a deadline to present the solutions. Coaching helped me to solve a very big challenge more easily and faster than I could have expected. Looking back, it was a great investment into my development, motivation, and career.“

Andres Sutt

Member of Riigikogu, earlier top management at Eesti Energia, Estonian National Bank and member of the lead team at the European Stability Mechanism

Slide 4

“Different coaching sessions with Haide have helped me personally to prepare for upcoming difficult conversations, in tidying up my thinking and broadened my view on other people’s perspectives.”

Rain Laane

Chairman of the Board, Estonian Health Insurance Fund

Slide 5

„Why do I always love to come back to Haide?
Haide, your questions are spot on to get to the essence of the issue at hand, and the tools you offer that support different solution options have always amazed me, it works and it is simple.“

Krista Humal

Head of Human Resources, Estonian Health Insurance Fund

Slide 6

„It was important to me that I could speak freely. You helped me to direct my thoughts towards the right path, to understand what is really important. You gave me very good tools on how to manage in this fast-paced and changing work-life. How to feel joy and acknowledge myself also when accomplishing smaller tasks. You also helped me to look through the eyes of the other party.
It was not like a course of a pill treatment that you take in and get well. It was more like a prologue to the beginning of a new journey.“

Mare Parve,

Key Account Manager and Head of Service Sales, Tamro Baltics / Tamro Estonia

Slide 7

„Collaboration with Haide for me as a leader is like „therapy“ where I have the opportunity to find the right answers and solutions from within myself using open conversations and reflections. I have learned to find joy in difficulties and to consider these as challenges. As a team, we are growing from being good specialists into great leaders of our field. The team's development is showing an increase in support, trust, commitment, bravery in showing also one’s weaknesses. As an organization, we have learned to „listen“ and „discuss“ better, and to grow the desire to take on more responsibility that ensures better results for the entire company.“

Aivo Varem

CEO / Member of the Board, Saarioinen Eesti OÜ

Slide 8

„During the first year as a school principal, I received great support in setting goals, keeping the focus on what is important, and in the reflection of my thoughts. To start a new team and open its potential, we organized a management learning community during the entire academic year which goal was to offer leaders a professional development environment that supports the development of their leadership competencies. Together, we were able to create better opportunities for development and moving forward than any of us would have been able to do on one's own.
For me, it was important to gain an external, professional view, an exploratory and questioning approach to implement the necessary changes. This approach and the methods of how we achieved the desired results suited me very well. I learned a lot during this period.“

Karmen Paul

former Principal at Viimsi School, today's Principal of Viimsi High School

Slide 9

„Collaboration with you has been beyond value-creating. I am ready to do it all over again with you and recommend you to others without hesitation. For me, leadership quality expresses itself mainly through three indicators: business result, client satisfaction, and employee commitment. Our collaboration has been oriented towards the latter one, and the freshly received study results confirm that our employees' commitment stays on a very high level. It is possible to uphold that indicator through a high leadership quality in all management levels. When we started with the developmental management program, I did not have a clear vision of how to do it and where it will take us exactly but we sensed the necessity for it. We combined the company’s internal sense of what was needed with your skills and methodologies, and we achieved great results. I consider the supervision sessions you led with the board especially valuable. The complicated issues that we discussed and the new ideas that emerged have been the foundation of great changes at Elektrilevi. I have received the same feedback also from the department managers' group. The work conducted in training groups and in smaller circles has taken Elektrilevi to be more open as an organization. The organization has enjoyed the development of reasoning skills and the courage to be different. Combined with that, there is an increase of fastidiousness towards the leadership skills of managers at every management level. That, in turn, has pulled the leaders out of their comfort zones and made them think of leadership as a profession every step of the way, and filtered out some weaker ones that need support.“

Tarmo Mere

Chairman of the Board (years 2008-2017), Elektrilevi

Slide 10

„I recommend Haide when you need to start a new team or to raise the trust level of the existing team to new heights. Haide is a very warm person who creates an atmosphere of trust, and that creates trust also between team members. As a man as well as a leader, I have learned many useful tips and exercises from Haide on how to direct team members to collaborate better, and for example, how to manage meetings better. I recommend Haide also as a personal coach. She is a good listener and can help to find a way out as well as a new perspective also in difficult situations.“

Slide 1

"I turned to Reet when looking for a guide to help me find a good solution in difficult employment relations. Reet as a person is an extremely pleasant conversation partner who gives wise impulses with her easygoing communication style, and she casually directs you towards solutions. Many times I was amazed about the solutions we found – they felt so self-explanatory and connected to me but I doubt if I would have found them on my own. Because of her smart questions, I was able to realize which aspects I can change myself and is therefore worth investing in. And on which aspects it is not worth spending my energy. She didn’t only help in professional matters but also in the matters of universal self-management: how to organize my daily life so that I have more freedom and inspiration to take on important things."

Jane Õispuu

Head of Politics, European Commission Representation in Estonia

Slide 2

„Coaching experience with Reet was something new to me. It was the first time I had this kind of training. It was interesting: at times fun, but also challenging, it was not easy. It made me understand team management from more scientific angle and see certain aspects which were previously unnoticed. It helped me to understand my own leadership style as well as development areas and gave me tools to work on improvements. Also, my team really appreciated me involving them in the process. Overall, it improved my awareness of how, what I do and say, is seen by others, and what others are not always telling me. And of course, couching techniques that I learned are very useful, and very powerful tools. My boss has “caught” me using them with her (without me being aware of doing it), and she has admitted that my techniques are very efficient.”

Gatis Licitis

Head of Customer Marketing, Betsafe Baltics, Tallinn, Estonia

Slide 3

“Working with Reet as my coach this year has been, and continues to be, a real growth experience. Her style is one of balance, at times soft and allowing, creating a real sense of spaciousness, and at other times fearlessly incisive, cutting through the crap with a clear focus.
She has an ability to see what is needed in the moment, and responds to that. She also has a way of working that allows the unexpected to arise, and be examined creatively, whilst then anchoring it very rationally in the real world. I leave every session with a new insight about myself, my process and clear steps towards whatever project I am working on.”

Viki Hall

Founding Partner at Lanellsohn, Coach and Learning Designer, London, UK

Slide 4

„Reet coached me though some difficult times at work. She is fantastic at really listening, noticing feedback and following her instincts to ask the right questions and know when to give space and when to focus more on something. She helped me get to the bottom of the problem and figure out what I really wanted in the situation and explore some options for creating the changes I was looking for. It was great to come back and discus how things had gone in between sessions, and look at the barriers I was experiencing, and celebrate my successes. I don't like being given advice unless I ask for it, so I found her spacious, yet focused style of coaching really suited me.“

Penny Watson

Community Development Specialist, Alice Springs, NT, Australia

Slide 5

“Reet has been instrumental in helping me through several situations, the biggest one being a crisis at work that revolved around a destructive and unravelling relationship with a boss who tried to fire me. It was stressful, frightening, and frustrating to say the least, but Reet systematically helped me work through many aspects, including my reactivity, connectivity, and coping mechanisms. Her approach challenged me to open my mind, take responsibility as appropriate, and shed light on discrepancies in a non-accusatory way. I appreciate her balanced approach at challenges me, but ultimately supporting my decisions. I would highly recommend her to anyone.”

J. Scott Carroll

Manager of Service Training Development at Daimler Trucks North America, Portland, Oregon, USA

Slide 6

"I had the pleasure of working with Reet a few years back, when I invited her onto a project to create a training for an organization here in Portland. The project was in the very late stages. From the moment she stepped on, Reet was completely present and attentive to all of the details. Thanks to her creativity and insight, the content and vision of the training became polished, at a level beyond my imagining. Reet has a capacity to sit with challenges, get to the essence, and align with emerging possibilities and solutions. She brings an ease and clarity to her work and is a total pleasure to collaborate with!"

Elsa Henderson

Coach and Facilitator, Catalyst Coaching, Portland, Oregon, USA

Slide 7

“Wonderful things started to happen when we verbalized results in our group coaching session. Although the goal had already been visualized, the support from the group gave it a whole new impetus. I have greater faith in myself – I am capable of doing the things that I really want to do! Taking this journey paid off already during the first two months that followed.“

Aive Uus

CEO, Concise OÜ

Slide 8

“I am grateful to myself that amid a life full of activities and responsibilities, I showed enough selfishness and took some time for myself. Engaging in self-development has been helpful to me in getting past my comfort zones, setting goals, and enjoying the ride while doing all that. Group coaching sessions have given me the skills to be gentle towards myself and the ability to act as a counselor to myself. I am very grateful for these new internal experiences, and I know that this is only the beginning. I recommend a coaching session with Reet to everyone who wishes to move forward with awareness and well-being.”

"Enn Saar supported us in reviewing the strategy and guiding the future of the Estonian ICT Cluster. I very much enjoyed the holistic approach to the entire process that Enn facilitated, where we were not offered what we initially ordered on paper, but what came out during the course of the work, what we actually needed. I would like to praise the chosen methodology to carry out the work - the meetings and seminars were very systematic, thought out to detail, and also engaging which helped to achieve a stronger team involvement and commitment with the issue at hand. You can be sure that when working with Enn on implementing change you will not be forgotten during the moments in the process when the priority of the topic tends to get lost among all the daily activities.
