how can i serve you?

I wish everybody could and would live their full potential. So raising consciousness with people that have a strong desire to do so, is one of my main goals that I am very dedicated to. I am so grateful if people become the best they can be: your true Self. The person you are meant to be. My other focus is being a global explorer: contributing to serve Earth, working with the Global Goals for Sustainable Development. I always try to live the Golden Rule ('Treat others and the planet as you wish to be treated', rebootthefuture.org), so I love creating rituals and ceremonies with nature as our biggest teacher. Next to these activities, I am using every minute of 2019 to develop an innovative program for people with an intention to have a sustainable impact with their lives :-). For these programs, I am very excited to be partnering with true masters in the field of leadership, transformation and sustainability. So keep an eye on my website if you truly want to make a difference with your talents, your life!

The famous iceberg model, that applies both to personal behaviours and organisations: 10% is what we see, which is determined by the 90% we don't see..

The famous iceberg model, that applies both to personal behaviours and organisations: 10% is what we see, which is determined by the 90% we don't see..

Understanding what drives us...

"True leadership is mastering authenticity". The more people understand what drives their behaviour, the more compassion they can have towards themselves. The more you know and love yourself, the more you can give to other people and the world. That sounds lovely and simple. Yet it isn't. It takes courage to deep dive in your beliefs to discover where they come from. You need guts to learn how your worldview has been built. But those who did it, they know: it is such a gift once you become conscious and start walking your own path, living your own life like you are meant to be! So I love coaching people individually to get to know and understand themselves better. Like I love to support teams getting to know themselves and each other and bridge that to doing business in a more successful, fun, humane way.  In the end, we are all the same, yet every question I get is different. That is why I find it really important to always start with a live get-together to connect to you and your question. In that way we can make sure I am the right person for you and I can listen to your question and the questions underneath, to make you a tailor-made session, event, gathering, whatever it is you had in mind.     


Theory U as a framework for transformational journeys

Similar to the iceberg model, theory U is aimed at getting in touch with your true self, your inner wisdom. Instead of making a 'quickie' and crossing the U on the top from a dilemma to a solution by a quick fix (at the very probable risk that this is not a very new, innovative solution and it will probably, again, not work ;-)), the model facilitates in descending underneath the iceberg in a very profound way. If then, you arrive at the other end of the U, you have explored a dilemma in a 360 degree way, have found many creative possible solutions and really embodied the solution you have chosen in your mind, heart and body. Whether I am facilitating a session, organising a retreat for you or doing a coaching session of 1,5 hours, I will always give my best to facilitate a full U process.

Purpose and values driven leadership

I am so enthusiastic about Barrett's model, which is based on Maslow's needs. Richard Barrett expanded that to a consciousness model, fitting to the needs of people living in today's world. That is: in the part of the world where I live (Netherlands), we have the luxury of having all the means to fulfil our basic needs quite easy. So we have space enough to make our lives meaningful. So to me, focussing on purpose and happiness are not trends, but a very logical consequence of living in this part of the world and this era. I see it as a responsibility to life itself. I am very happy that more and more people, schools, organisations start working purpose and values driven. So whether you want to work on your personal leadership, organisational leadership, purpose of the company or find the meaning of your life, this model is a great help in becoming conscious about what you need to do to get there. 

Personally, I choose three core values every year to explore and develop for myself. This year (2019) those are: vision, freedom and wisdom.  

You can read the lessons learned in my personal journeys in my blogs!

Global goals and partnerships

To me, it is very obvious that we all need to contribute to the world's issues of today. It is not somebody else's problem, not up to youth to solve...I truly feel everybody can take some kind of responsibility (however small or big). To me, the global goals are a clear framework to work towards 17 important goals that we have to (and can) tackle in 2030, if we collaborate. I am very open for any kind of partnering around the global goals, whether it is about people becoming conscious, women's rights, a more sustainable world or the next generation.

This year (2019), next to no 17, I have chosen the following 3 to focus on:
