Get to Know Me
Who I Am
Hi, my name is Fiona Dieleman, and I’m a christian based personal coach and mentor with a prophetic/apostolic/breakthrough annointing, but I like to think of myself as a life strategist, helping people navigate life’s challenges and their journey with God.
I’ve been described as someone who paints possibilities and hope into people’s lives with my words and helps you to map out your pathway, implement God’s strategies, wisdom and principles into your daily life in a practical way that makes a difference.
I’m also a connector who loves to put people together and resources with people. I love to meet new people, and am passionate about playing a part in helping women become their best in God.
Coaching vs Mentoring
Coaching helps you find your own answers, mentoring gives you the benefit of my experience also. Coaching tends to be goal focused and short-term with the relationship ending when the goal is achieved. This may take a defined number of get-togethers. Coaching is best when you have specific goals to achieve such as being more organised, finding your purpose, growing your confidence or solving a particular problem.
Mentoring is more about a long term relationship of trust with a mentor who can be your advisor, motivator, inspirer and teacher, or your go-to person when you need one. This may mean just one conversation when you need it or you may feel you want to touch base on a defined regular basis e.g. monthly. I have quite a number of women who relate to me as a mentor who check in with me from time to time depending on what is happening in their lives.
Past and Present
I have two grown daughters and one adorable 3-year old grandson, and with hubby we get to live in the beautiful Bay of Plenty close to beaches and bush. Hubby and I both work from home co-owning a business in the transport industry for the last 11 years.
I’ve been a Christian for 30 years, and many of those in leadership in one form or another. It has always been a desire of my heart to grow God’s own people into the fullness of who He has designed them to be. I currently fellowship at The Coolstore in Te Puke and am part of the leadership team.
My career experience has included adult training, workshop designing, and presentation, small group facilitation, administration, event management, sales and customer service. My passion has always been for personal development, hence my qualification as a life coach. I’ve also led workshops in assertiveness training, sel-esteem building, and workplace communication. Other qualifications include workplace training, leadership, goal setting and time management.
