Welcome. I'm Alena Hielema.
I’m a certified coach, trainer, and speaker. Most importantly I'm a champion of women seeking unshakeable confidence, getting clarity to become an authentic & fulfilled leader in their life, business or career and play really BIG. I am a member of the International Coach Federation making sure that I keep the highest standards and best tools available while working with my clients. Recently I became a finalist of The Freelancer of the year 2019 Award. It was a big distinction for me for my contribution to women empowerment activities. I am very grateful!
Today, I'm a happy wife, mother of two lovely girls and a strong, courageous and well-grounded woman living the life on my own terms! I have the privilege of supporting female high achievers to shine their Light, build new habits in order to reach higher and make a real difference in their lives, careers & businesses. This is my mission I truly enjoy!
BUT TO BE WHERE I'M NOW I NEEDED TO EMBRACE A BIG CHANGE
After working successfully for a large training company in Poland as a Training Manager, leading teams of people, I moved to the Netherlands for my husband. I left everything behind - my family, friends, work & social status and have been living here for 13 years now. I was busy studying Marketing Management, Sociology, and Human Resources Management. I spent 17+ years in different industries, performing various roles ranging from an assistant, recruiter to a manager. Always enjoyed working with people but I experienced a pattern that women with creative ideas, awesome talent, and aspiration were not seeing their own value and brilliance (including myself!) O, Gosh! Although being a high-performer I felt I wasn't performing to my best qualities. It took me some time to work on myself but it paid off.
I STRONGLY FELT I COULD SUPPORT PEOPLE IN THEIR GROWTH AND MAKE AN IMPACT.
So, I have decided to complete an education in coaching and training, to be able to support people in their personal and professional development. All that while raising two kids and doing also some voluntary jobs. And fast forward to today, I’ve coached female professionals at all company levels, entrepreneurs, consultants, and coaches. I conducted tens of training on communication, assertiveness, goal setting, self-confidence, values &talents, and motivation both for individuals and non-profit organizations in the Netherlands. I travel around Europe and speak publicly on the topic of women empowerment, leadership and business building. And it is extremely fulfilling!
I have to admit: I'm such a lucky woman! In the midst of a really busy life - business, a household with lovely kids (yes, it's pretty challenging but possible!) - I find time to do what I love - dancing, figure skating, hiking, personal development reading, enjoying SPA and drinking a glass of Prosecco with some good friends!
If you feel you are playing small but you can bring much more to the table and you are ready to create a new way of working and living, I am here to help you sharpen your focus and become a leader with more purpose and more authenticity.
I've been there too, I made lots of mistakes but I learned one extremely important thing:
It's all about being in alignment with your desires, showing up for yourself so that this skilled, talented, and valuable woman (just like you!) can be finally seen and LEAD fearlessly!
