For the last 20 years, after working as a publisher and manager in big publishinghouses, I have trained and coached a high number of individuals in organisational contexts and on an individual basis. I am is sensitive to the needs of organisations and those within them, while I understand the need to create safe spaces for people to feel at ease in. It creates an atmosphere in which they will open up to themselves and their colleagues, so as to be their authentic and powerful selves. I have been coaching and training in local, national and international settings in Holland, Switzerland and Germany in various fields from the corporate environment, small companies and start-ups to schools and universities. My experience lies in leadershipdevelopment, personal development and branding, teambuilding, and helping organisations to build a safe enviroment for growth and sustainable change.
A personal note
In all those years of working with people in all kinds of contexts, I have seen that the power of the solution, change or growth lies within the resourcefulness of people to handle events, challenges and changes.
Creating an enviroment where respect for this world and the freedom of each individual enables meaningful collaboration was always my drive and it will always be. This was relevant when I was a child, it is even more now with all the challenges we are up to. Over the years I gained a deep understanding for the ways we as human beings can lock ourselves up in our conscious and unconscious opinions - mostly unintended. Whenever I asked people: what do you prefer, reach your potential, or stick to where you are? Collaboration or fights? Most people choose the potential and the collaboration. And I gained even deeper respect for their willingness to get out of their comfort zone, have the courage to change their minds and actually walk the talk of their intentions.
