About the Dutch Coach

office2Ton de Graaf (1962) is The Dutch Coach.

 Ton de Graaf, Chartered Business Coach™

When I ask my clients to describe our coaching sessions it’s usually this: inspirational. Mind you, I have a military background so, no fluffy stuff, just results.

If you are interested in doing more in less time, engaging and mobilising people, creating a high-performance culture, building high-performing teams, making a career transition, developing the next generation of leaders, and finding that one thing to be a better leader and making it a habit, you’ve come to the right address.

I am one of the very few executive coaches in the world who is designated by the Worldwide Association of Business Coaches as a Chartered Business Coach™ (ChBC™). The ChBC is the only chartered business coaching designation in the world, and is the highest level of certification for experienced coaches.

I’m very practical and results oriented and have been coaching C-level executives across the globe for the past 10 years.

For larger global contracts I team up with the best of the best: CoachSource in Los Angeles, the Global Coaching Group in Germany, Hand & Associates in Los Angeles, The Leadership Development Group in New York.

McKesson, Philips, IBM, Google, Unilever, Bayer, Citrix, Sandvik, Ingersoll Rand, EMC, Adidas, Booz & Company, Generali.
