Ms. Bayraktaroglu finds that coaching is a relationship which is based purely on trust. She finds great value in authenticity which enables her to grow and have better relationships. Both as a coach and as a trainer or facilitator, Gamze is able to flow with the participants to be open, sincere, authentic, spiritual, transparent, positive and playful. She builds relations with sponsors based on trust by caring about their needs, respect for them, confidentiality, fairness, kindness, being present, sharing and generosity, and solidarity. So they soon start to see her as part of their project not as a vendor or an outsider. She loves to be part of that journey, to support people to become much more than they think they are, to challenge them to get out of their comfort zone. Her purpose in doing so is to create ripple effects as powerful as possible so that the world changes in a positive way.

Gamze’s coaching approach is a blend of Co-Active, Gestalt, NLP, Cognitive Therapy and Transactional Analysis.
