Why Leadership & Learning?

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes"

- Marcel Proust

I believe we human beings have an incredible potential to live, learn and work to the fullest. And to do so in a nurturing relationship with ourselves, others, our organizations and our surroundings. With our fellow human beings and our planet. Living, learning and working to the fullest require robust vulnerability: daring to open up and to act decisively at the same time. Even if the road ahead is unknown and the circumstances are challenging. Trusting what works well and courageously letting go of what no longer serves your purpose. Consciously connecting with yourself, others and the world around you. Being present with and resilient in every situation while reaching your goals with full attention. As an awareness-builder, I will guide you on the path to your effective leadership. To have you unleash your full potential, flourish and be your most resilient self.

Whatever happens. In my book, settling for less is no option.

"We don’t get to choose what happens to us, but we do get to choose how we respond to our experience’ "

Edith Eger

I primarily focus on developing authentic leadership: honest, value - driven and effective. Leadership in the most flexible sense: personal leadership as well as leading others or with others. Not only in a hierarchical relationship as manager, teacher or parent, but also as colleague, partner or co-leader.

Just like humus is a nutrient in growing trees and plants, I believe that awareness is the foundation of human growth. Awareness is the soil on which effective inner and outer leadership can flourish. It’s up to you what you want to sow and reap. Together we will look at where pruning might be necessary and we will highlight what is already blossoming. My coaching and facilitation are focused on helping you explore your own strengths, deepen your awareness and mobilize yourself. And it is focused on what is needed to reach your (organizational) goals and to unleash your full authentic leadership potential.

To do so, I fully exploit my core values: playful curiosity, attentive presence, robust vulnerability and result orientation, as well as my ability to constantly see things from different perspectives and (cultural) contexts.

My native tongue is Dutch, my coaching languages are English and Dutch.
