What is ChatCoach?
Our learning route takes you further.
From pioneer to expert
Back in 2002, we were confronted to the realities of online conversations.
It can generate a plethora of miscommunication issues but also opportunity's. Due to the loss of physical presence, people appear to be more open about their thoughts and feelings.
The development of ChatCoach concept in 2005 was the result of what started as its the founder's personal need to solve those problems and take advantage of the opportunities of online communication.
The concept was aimed at applying conversational solutions to human resources in organizations. More measurably, in 2008 ChatCoach became the first provider of both online digital communication coaching and hybrid coaching via supporting software.
This led to founder Jeanette Krijnen co-authoring a book* on this subject in 2009. Ironically, strong online 'conversational skills' lead to improved in-person interaction.

ChatCoach’s building blocks are the research results* of the ChatCoach methodology and the applied expertise of about 15 years of online and hybrid (meaning online + in-person) guidance of individuals and groups.
Over time, ChatCoach has expanded its expertise in various online communication channels. This is to promote professional, vital and effective online conversation techniques. Deferred interaction: via email, online doctor portals and company portals. Online interaction in real-time: video consultations, video meetings or conferences and various web chats.
In 2022, professionals will almost unequivocally reach their (internal) clients online. With the adoption of the ChatCoach methodology, online dialogues are proven effective and experienced as personal and close by.

Remote and hybrid learning, working and development require coordination at multiple levels.
ChatCoach is a partner in setting up development projects or delivering interventions to guarantee quality, vitality and continuity. We guide you or your organisation into a custom-designed transition with in-person to hybrid programmes that include and monitor necessary behavioral changes.
With monitored control on the output, your organisation’s management will be able to empower everyone while letting the reins loose, on the basis of trust.
ChatCoach gives you an immediate advantage on all strategic, tactical and operational levels by further increasing your level of professionalism through face-to-face, hybrid and remote deployment.
A train-the-trainer approach is the only truly beneficial and effective way to transfer expertise and insure success at all levels. Miscommunication and misinterpretation in online communication causes a plethora of problems. Often, the necessity for real human contact gets dismissed, excused by the hurdles and obligations of daily life and professional demands. Sometimes, moving from in-person conversations and their directness to their online alternative, will be accompanied by attendance drop-out, usually because of participants feeling unseen. In our training courses, you, as a professional, will learn the essence and best practices in creating, compiling and supervising online and blended learning processes and programmes. Use the expertise of ChatCoach to be personal and involved from meta to the interactive level, even remotely!
