Along with supporting senior executives on an individual basis, I am a passionate facilitator of team and group processes that trigger collective shifts in mindsets and behaviors. I combine an empathic eye with a confrontational style and deep knowledge of psychological behavior. Organizational cultures and values – the heart of what make top teams and organizations “tick” – are an integrated part of all major transformational programs I run.
A high–performance team culture is based on trust, dialogue and brutal honesty. In my work I combine state–of–the–art practices and tools to bring these elements to live within a corporate context. The “hard” and “soft stuff” need to dance together; the head and the heart, the body, mind and spirit are intimately linked together.
For the last ten years, I have been an independent professional and executive coach at my own company, specializing in coaching and top team alignment programs. This has been a highly successful and entrepreneurial period in my life, which taught me the value of building strong client relationships and delivering excellent results. Before that, I gained extensive experience in leadership development and organizational performance in my work for the European Corporate Finance Practice of McKinsey & Company.
I earned a BA in organizational communications and an MBA from the University of Westminster in London. I am also trained in MBTI, Cultural Transformation Tools by Richard Barrett’s, and transformational facilitation by Gita Bellin. I received a degree in ontological coaching by Newfield Network (Julio Olalla) and the MMS Institute, and an internationally certified coach diploma (PCC) through the International Coach Federation.
I live in the heart of Amsterdam with my husband, Ruben, and our son and daughter, who are my biggest passion in life. I also love theatre and classical music, travelling to South Africa and Brazil, horse riding and painting.
