“I have a huge passion for how our mind/body/spirit connection is working and how that relates to (personal) leadership”.
Nowadays I am working internationally in this field, in Spain for the IE business school as professor in behavioural organisational leadership, in Europe and in Australia with business clients besides working in the therapeutic field as a Clinical Hypnotherapist/Psychotherapist and having a recognised school in this.
My interest in continuous learning, and the passion in understanding “why it works as it works” and being driving by the question “can it be solved more successfully” has been the drive for my own personal development. With as result specialising in executive coaching, team coaching, leadership development and projects that require a cultural change and last but not least working with patients with mental health issues.
I am now blessed with more than 28 years experience in line management, consultancy, international training, executive coaching, and working with clients with severe issues. I feel grateful that I have the opportunity to be working with people in countries in Europe, Middle East, India, Asia, USA and of course Australia, with more than 10.000 people in small training groups or face to face.
Working with so many people in a direct way gave me amazing insight and how we are the same and how we differ in our (personal) leadership, happiness and sufferings and how we can develop or change.
My main focus, specialty and strength are to create the conditions where positive change can happen, in individuals and therefore organisations.
That means most of the times go deeper than only the behaviour and the logic of our head, and really challenge the overarching limiting beliefs and values that are stopping us from moving forward and create an environment where those can develop in positive supporting belief and values. In this way, truly long-lasting personal and cultural change is happening.
To sum up: Creating an environment of integrated head, heart and gut leadership.
