I am an experienced transformational trainer, coach, and manager with over 20 years of experience combining innovative and strategic leadership with human development. Over the past 11 years, I have been working as a manager in a large healthcare organization in the Netherlands. In ‘my’ unit 170 employees work with 800 deaf and deafblind clients each year. In the past 3 years, I successfully developed a technique to apply and implement Transformational Presence in mainstream organizations. Since Transformational Presence is the foundation for how we work and communicate in my unit, ‘hard’ results, as well as many ‘soft’ results, have significantly improved.
My approach to life is rooted in the awareness that we are all spiritual beings having a human experience. Transformational Presence is the foundation on which my work in the world is built. That approach offers practical tools, formats, and language to bridge any experience and knowledge of the inner world with the challenges of daily life and work. Other elements in my approach are insights and knowledge from the HeartMath Institute, Ontological Coaching & Leadership, Theory U, Appreciative Inquiry, meditation, and mindfulness.
I am particularly dedicated to supporting teams and organizations in working from the inside out, knowing that the quality of any wanted result is directly related to the awareness people in the system are operating from.
I have a unique understanding of individual and team behavior, know how to challenge their viewpoints respectfully, and use their natural talents. By making use of my authenticity and core values, I am a role model and catalyst to fulfill the highest potential in people and teams. Using my key strengths of upliftment, clarity, intuition, empathy, and action I harness vital resources to achieve results.
Since 2016 I have been associated with the Center for Transformational Presence. After intensive education and training by Alan Seale, the founder of Transformational Presence, I am offering and leading Transformational Presence programs and workshops as a Certified Program Leader.
