Helping You Succeed!

Looking for: New ways to improve leadership practice? Increase engagement and flexibility? Grow high-performing, psychologically safe teams? Coach individuals to increased resilience, self-confidence or behavioural changes?

Let Me Help You

I am skilled and experienced – and I’ve walked “in your shoes”.

I always combine “being” with “doing”.

I teach, coach and/or facilitate with focus on how people can translate their true nature into action.

I am undogmatic and open-minded. I tailor my interventions to your realities and time limitations.

I have worked as a leader and in Corporate HRD. So I know your challenges and constraints. I also know how many coaching and training providers you may have to sift through to find the right fit.

In 2003, I launched Direct Leadership – a training concept for middle managers and team leaders.

What Sets Me Apart?

While many trainers and coaches focus only on the “being” aspect” of their clients’ roles, such as being a good leader, a succesful employee, a project manager…?

But… “being someone or something” can’t be separated from “doing” what’s needed.

And without a strong focus on “doing”, there will be no transfer of learning from an intervention.

Choose Me…

You’ll get a solution that integrates a deep understanding of your challenges with practical and tangible tools.

Additionally, I don’t judge if you only require a couple of hours of my time.

My interventions range from ultra-short 2 hour interventions to personalised coachings and week-long certification programs. I accept the challenge of working within your time constraints while delivering excellence.

Together, we will create the intervention that fits your needs!
