Individual coaching is an efficient way to address your own themes and develop your communication skills.
An ‘In-House’ arrangement offers many benefits to companies looking for language, communication and performance training for management and staff.
Comprehensive programs developed especially for High Potentials, Management and Business Professionals are time efficient and effective.
Workshops focused on specific learning goals and interests can be organized for your company.
Participants will improve practical English language skills and examine the broader context of communication. They will improve their writing and speaking in English, gain insights into communicating with empathy and customer orientation, and learn about cross-cultural and interpersonal communication patterns.
The content is adapted to company specific communication processes and themes. The training is aimed at practical application and participants are encouraged to bring in their own emails, work materials and cases.
Amie de Jeu offers coaching to improve personal and professional communication, build confidence in using the English language and work on your own goals.
Private sessions can be organized at your office, home or another convenient office or meeting place. The full attention of an experienced coach can provide an excellent opportunity to concentrate exclusively on your own objectives.
Examples of private coaching include: Specific requests (e.g. job tasks, presentations, interviews); Train the trainer; Executive level coaching; Expat coaching; Communication coaching, and Sparring partner.
Regular schedules are set up (e.g. the trainer visits the company for a full day twice a month all year) and many group and individual training and coaching sessions can be accommodated.
This offers many advantages. Not only does the company have a reliable English language and communication specialist on hand to facilitate training and coaching for all (or many) of their employees, it also affords the trainer the opportunity to get to know the company and the business which helps customize the training and materials. This arrangement also provides an opportunity to work together with the managers and directors to integrate the corporate values, the company’s employee development vision, and gives insight into the organization’s communication processes.
Additionally, special training programs can easily be arranged, standard departmental emails can be periodically reviewed and revised, personnel can be given coaching sessions when communication issues arise, there is a threat of burn-out, or when adjusting to a promotion or transition, and the trainer is on call for questions or editing of written materials and translations.
High Potentials or ‘Talents’ are in demand by many organizations because of their potential to excel. Companies recognize the importance of investing in training these talented people to help them succeed and add value to the company. This 4-day program is specifically dedicated to High Potentials to enhance their business communication skills and prepare them for management functions in international environments. The program can stand alone or be coordinated to complement other training programs for this target group.
Leadership and trainee development organizations and employee development managers are welcome to contact me to incorporate business communication modules into their programs.

In this workshop, you will learn how to communicate in such a way that the listener or receiver will experience the interaction in a positive way, even if the message itself is ‘negative’. This is especially important in customer relations.
Empathetic Communication: Customer service, client acquisition and retention, and employee satisfaction often hinge on how people feel about the people they work with. Companies recognize this and often encourage people to communicate empathetically. In this workshop, you will learn how to develop this way of communicating.
Receptionist: Secretaries and receptionists gain confidence in performing job tasks in English. Customer service and professional representation are integral parts of the workshop.
Current Affairs: Contemporary topics are used as a springboard for discussion, debate and English language building.
