Dr. Paul Vanderbroeck, Chartered FCIPD CC

Paul Vanderbroeck develops leaders through executive coaching, workshops, and assessments. He works with teams and organizations to improve their collaboration and performance.

Paul has a particular interest in how leaders and organizations interact most effectively. In other words, he wants to help leaders get the results they want. In his coaching practice he specializes in Career Transitions, Intercultural Integration, making Female Executives successful, Performance Management, and Change. As a consultant and facilitator he is an expert in Effective Teamwork, Change Management, and Talent Management.

Paul believes in the importance of starting with a solid diagnosis, whether working with individuals, teams or organisations. Rather than a one-size-fits-all, he chooses from a portfolio of diagnostic instruments. Equally important are clear and ambitious objectives. Other than that, he is able to adapt his style to the needs of the situation and the individual he is working with. He thrives on the success of the people he accompanies.

Paul’s clients are multinational organizations in all sectors, notably Financial Services, Pharmaceuticals, Professional Services, and FMCG. He is a career coach for the Global Leadership Fellows at the World Economic Forum and a Leadership Coach at IMD International.

He has published in Harvard Business Review, Sloan Management Review, McKinsey Quarterly, Journal of Management Development, and International Journal of Mentoring and Coaching.

Paul holds a BA, MA and PhD in History from the Catholic University of Nijmegen (NL) and is a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (UK).
