About us

We are committed to helping executives and leaders bridge the gap between performance and balance.

We do this through personalised coaching and leadership development that aligns with your values and ambitions.

The Neolis team

Behind Neolis is a team of skilled and experienced coaches who know first-hand what it’s like to work in a demanding business environment.  We combine this business experience with evidence-based coaching and training techniques – and proven tools and assessments, where relevant – to address your challenges and help you reach your objectives.

Our strengths-based approach is rooted in a firm belief that we all possess the capabilities we need to achieve our goals. By instilling, or reinforcing, a growth mindset, we help you uncover the path towards those goals and embrace the necessary behaviour change.

Our coaches have formal coaching qualifications and all adhere to ICF coaching principles, the gold standard in coaching.  Our qualified trainers use active training techniques, with a focus on learning by experience. Exercises, discussions, peer-to-peer coaching and self-reflection all play an important role in our training programmes.

Coaching and training can be delivered in English, French, and Dutch.

Christelle Goblet
Lead coach and trainer, founder of Neolis

“I wake up every day energised to help people achieve their professional and personal goals.”

Christelle founded Neolis based on the strong belief that people perform at their best when they can use and build on their talents, are encouraged to grow, and are inspired to work together with others towards a common vision. She therefore sees investing in people as a win-win that not only contributes to business success but that also improves quality of life.

Drawing on her 20-year career as a management consultant, Christelle can quickly understand the business realities and challenges her clients are facing. She then works closely with them to develop a bespoke coaching or training journey that directly aligns with their needs, and that encourages real behaviour change that will help them achieve their goals.

Christelle is an ICF-certified coach, a Gallup Strengths coach, a DISC-certified practitioner and has trained in Brain-Based Conversation and Results coaching at the Neuroleadership Institute. She coaches and trains in English, French and Dutch.

Inge Hermans
Coach and trainer

“The power of knowing our full potential puts us on the best path forward.”

Inge strongly believes that the world of work needs more people thriving in their greatest strengths. She coaches people starting from their talents instead of trying to ‘fix’ what they may perceive to be wrong with them. This stimulates a positive outlook, helping people achieve success, effectiveness, and personal well-being faster.

During her 18 years in Human Resources in international environments, Inge worked with leaders to develop people solutions and solve organisational issues. She quickly understands her clients’ business context and company values, enabling her to translate these realities into impactful coaching journeys.

Birgit Matthé
Birgit Matthé
Coach and trainer

“I love to coach people and see them grow and flourish and do things they thought were impossible.”

Birgit’s coaching career grew from her passion for solving difficult problems. Over the years, she realised that many of the complicated situations people find themselves in have a common root – very often, they arise from interpersonal issues, tensions or miscommunications, and an analytical mind alone is not enough to resolve them.

That was the trigger Birgit needed to start studying one of the most complex topics in the universe: people, their mindsets, and interpersonal connections. Now, she uses her knowledge and experience to guide others, and goes ‘all in’ to help them achieve results they never imagined possible.

Birgit is an ICF-certified coach, a Gallup Strengths coach, and an Enneagram practitioner.  She coaches and trains in English and Dutch.
