Why coaching, Kris?
Working as a software tester I have seen a lot of emotions, when it came to bug reports or failed software. By learning and gaining knowledge in domain I started to see correlation and different patterns behind bugs, development of a project, software quality, company culture, management and customer evolvement and team spirit. I am good in analysing things and finding patterns, but that is not enough for me. I always wanted to be a part of a solution.
For more then a 4 years I fulfilled that wish by working as an IT trainer and sharing my knowledge with individuals and teams. Coaching I see as a next logical step: to dive deeper in learning and coach you that you can achieve your dreams and make this world better. This is why I decided to launch my own coaching business.
To empower IT people to be courageous, bold and diverse.

I’ve seen all the Harry Potter movies and read all the books. Multiple times. I like diagrams, codes and algorithms , which is why I like knitting so much. I have an infectious enthusiasm, need to grow myself and desire to help others grow.
…and I am many more things: mother, wife, sister, neighbor, supporter, rebel, dog lover, part of community…
