Welcome the change!

Years ago when I set up my own company I had expected everything to be wonderful. I was sitting in my nice new office, I was independent, and I managed to board new clients very quickly. I remember feeling that this is it, this is what I have really wanted to be doing for years. 

But something was not right. I loved my job, which was executive search that I have been doing since 2005, but over time it became quite a routine. I found myself wanting more and I wanted to evolve my expertise. This ‘more’, however, required change and change is not my thing. I am more comfortable in stability than pushing the revolving door and taking chances. I do not like moving homes, changing my beloved car and likewise, until I set up my own company, changing my employer never crossed my mind. Change is uncertain, while stability gives me the feeling of security. 

I had a rough idea of what ‘more’ I wanted to do, however, it took me a year to decide and to make the first step towards it: to pursue my goal, to become a coach. Questions echoed in my head: am I going to be good enough; will I be able to add value to others’ career and life choices, how will I stand out from the overcrowded market of coaches, am I going to be trusted by my clients, can I earn the income that I want, and will I be able to allocate enough time besides family to build up a new business? I am used to being a successful executive search professional, but to begin again, to start all over, that required confidence, courage and stamina.  I was not sure I have it all.  

 At last, I gave it a go. Why? I could not be present with my family. I was always distracted by thinking of whether coaching would truly fit me and analyzing pros and cons. The constant noise in my head had to stop. 

Then during a few hot and quiet summer weeks at a lakeside, I dedicated some time to thoroughly explore coaching as a profession and I realized coaching is just perfect for me: it is about connecting and communicating with people, listening to them, supporting and inspiring them to try something new that contributes to their progress. These are the things what I do the best and that I like the most about executive search. So I enrolled to a coach training right away.

I found that it is not as easy as I imagined. I had to turn my ten plus year old consultant attitude of telling clients what to do to coach attitude of supporting clients to use their own resources to uncover their unique solutions. Also, going to school for one and a half years and building a new business required a lot of time that was sometimes difficult to devote besides maintaining my family life. It helped a lot that I fell in love with coaching so nothing could hold me back. 

Very soon I realized what I gained: a new profession that motivates me, gives me new perspectives, fills me with curiosity, joy and excitement, for which I am happy to start the day and move extra energies to make it work. I am continuously expanding my knowledge and I develop myself. I feel that I am doing something meaningful, I am creating value and there is greater sense in what I am doing. This all came from a scary change but it was definitely worth it!

I have been working as an executive search professional since 2005. After graduating from Corvinus University of Budapest, I began my career at an American owned boutique executive search firm based in Budapest, where I was in charge of supervising and executing middle and top level management searches. I have performed numerous projects for well-known multinational companies, SMEs and major international law firms in the field of Marketing, Sales, Finance, HR, Logistics, Legal, Production/Manufacturing and high-level Administrative areas. I have solid experience in industries like Advertising & Media and FMCG, and managing CE region wide searches, as I have successfully concluded assignments in Hungary, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Romania.  

After reviewing thousands of poorly written resumes and conducting several unsuccessful job interviews, where even the most promising candidates were unable to present their qualities, I have realized the importance of providing career consultancy services: writing an appealing resume to get invitation for the job interview and being completely prepared for the interview. Appearance, attitude, communication, your answers and questions asked all define whether you will get the job, or not. Being aware of the current job market situation and salary levels are also crucial, as well as creating your LinkedIn profile in a way that shines out from the crowd. 

In 2018, a few years after my son was born, I wished to turn towards a more transformative, supportive and people-focused profession: coaching. During interviewing middle and top level managers for many years, I have gained confidence in finding common voice with various kinds of personalities and the ability of opening them up. It impresses me how coaching focuses on your future well-being and it provides valuable support to find solution for the challenges surfacing during the coaching process. I am dedicated to work in partnership with you and to recognize the potential you possess through creative and thought-provoking discussions. My intention is to inspire you to resolve matters with communication and use your own powerful resources to find your unique way of making a step forward in your growth process. I am devoted to create trustworthy and supportive connection with you to be able to develop and make the most of you. 

I am an International Coaching Federation (ICF) accredited business coach, working along international coaching standards. I have obtained ACC (Associate Certified Coach) certification.

I am native in Hungarian and fluent in English. I provide all my services in both languages.

Social Media mint hatékony álláskeresési eszköz


Social Media mint hatékony álláskeresési eszköz

02 May 2024

Legtöbbünk magánélete során használja a social mediát, páldául Facebookot, LinkedInt, Instát, de a social media sokkal több tud lenni annál, mint hogy a nyári fotóinkat osszuk meg a barátainkkal, vagy hogy eladjuk a kinőtt babaruhát. A cégek nagy része használja a social mediát, amikor új alkalmazottat szeretne felvenni: itt hirdeti meg az állást vagy megnézi a leendő új munkatárs profilját. Álláskeresőként is érdemes használni ezt a platformot. Nemcsak állásokat találhatunk itt, hanem használhatjuk networkingre, megoszthatjuk ismerőseinkkel az állásváltásra való nyitottságunkat és építhetjük a személyes brandünket.
