Niels Malotaux
Project Coach

When and how is Niels Malotaux available ?

Niels Malotaux works often on a basis of up to one day per week per project. In larger organisations up to 3 days a week, coaching several projects in parallel.
Internationally we may have to charge some extra per visit, to cover for the travel time and travel costs: about 0.5 day extra within Europe, about 1 day extra outside Europe, depending on the exact location on the globe.
Coaching-on-a-distance and home office work is charged per hour.

Experience figures: Basic Project or Team coaching usually takes between 0.5 to 1.0 day of my time, times the number of people involved. That is usually between 3 and 10 days per project, one day a week, with a gap to try it out yourself. After that we still can add a lot of improvement, but your project will already be more successful, while spending 30% less time, and for the time being you better first focus on what you learnt, before going to the next steps.
If my advice doesn't help you, we will find out within 0.3 days of my time, times the number of people involved.
In some organizations I act like a 'flying QA person', observing how people work and what they work on, suggesting and helping to implement improvements immediately, with immediate results. In this capacity recently I travelled for 3 months 2 days a week to Manchester UK, and then 9 months 3 days a week to Dublin, to help out organizations.

Because I never work full time for one client,
I'm usually available immediately.

Don't hesitate to contact me for a no-risk approach.

Budget:
If people ask me: "What is the cost of your coaching?", my standard reply is: "If it would cost, I wouldn't even do it." Together we have to save more than my cost. Not in the far future, but rather now, immediately, in this current project.
That's why I always suggest not to put me on the training budget (which is limited, can be depleted before we're getting results as we would have to compete with other training), but rather to put me on the project budget. Now the project itself has to make sure that we are creating value together and can decide how much to get out of me. It's all about Return on Investment!

Satisfaction Guarantee:
All work by Malotaux is done to the best of his ability. Still, it may be possible that the ways of working or the expectations of the Client and Malotaux don't fit. Therefore, termination of the cooperation is possible at any moment, only by formally telling this, while explaining the reason. In such cases, only the work until that very moment will be charged.

No cure no pay:
Furthermore, any day you would be dissatisfied with the results of Malotaux's work will not be charged, on the condition that you file your complaint with Malotaux within 5 days after that day, or in any case before any next day of Malotaux' work. In such a case, any planned further activities by Malotaux will be automatically deferred, until we decide that satisfaction can again be expected.
Note that this all has to do with Return on Investment, and I expect from the teams I coach also that from now on they are going to act on a no-cure-co-pay basis: we are going to earn our salaries again!

Check the Conferences page to see where you may find me, if not at home.

Before or after each conference I usually stay around a few days, to allow for extra consultations, workshops and coaching at companies in the area.
Take advantage of me when I'm around, then we can save travel costs, especially if arranged before I arrange my travel to the area.
