ABC Angelika Barnes Coaching can help you make COMMUNICATION a HALLMARK of your success!
Being capable of expressing yourself in a confident and engaging manner is THE door-opener to success in life!
Self-Expression goes hand in hand with increasing self-awareness, self-belief and emotional intelligence.
A lot of us are stuck in limiting beliefs, carry old imprints and thinking patterns that are reflected in the way we communicate and that no longer serve us when we are striving for a BETTER life.
My desire is to help bring out the best version of YOU.
My Coaching Story
My coaching story already started in sports as a teenager and carried through to my professional life as Trainer and Coach in the Banking Academy in my native country, Germany, delivering their national Communication & Sales training courses (www.genoakademie.de).
In New Zealand I had the pleasure of expanding across all three economic sectors: Public (Education), Private (Tourism, Finance) and the Voluntary Sector, where I held operational and people management positions with a focus on empowerment.
I am also a NZ and Australia accredited Life Coach and an accomplished Toastmaster / Past President for local Club, “Madhatters”.
My life-long passion and involvement in Performing Arts has been a fitting scene to study communication and non-verbal communication, cultivate stage presence and to perfect presentation skills. I still get a real kick in partaking in the Art of Improvisational Theatre.
Experiential Learning is one of the main ingredients of my workshops. They are 'hands-on' and practical, because I believe in this saying: ‘I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand.’
In my spare time I have explored interests such as Human Psychology, Psychodrama, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Improv Theatre, Non Violent Communication as well as Emotional and Cultural Intelligence.
I am a bit of a globetrotter and actually got stranded in beautiful NZ on my solo world travels as a backpacker in 1996. I enjoy the outdoors on foot and by bike as well as camping with my lovely husband and good friends.
