My consulting work often begins with clarification processes: a clear positioning as a leader or functional role in an organization, clear team/area assignments and visible orientation; clarification of goals and visions, recognizing learning areas and strategic ‘levers for more effectiveness, a clear understanding of interrelationships and ambivalences…the end result is a significant increase in your strategic effectiveness and that of your team.
My task is to support you in fully penetrating your role as a leader and creatively fulfilling it with entrepreneurial ambition. I accompany you in organizational and personal change processes with the claim to effectively combine strategic and communicative aspects so that you achieve your goals with greater ease.
My goal is to keep you “fit” as a personality for your appearance on the professional stage and to make optimal use of your sovereign charisma – in the sense of “Next Level Leadership”.
My focus is on the personal coaching of specialists and executives, including management teams, who shape and lead diverse transformation processes. In addition, I advise strategy and business unit leaders and accompany transformation paths in teams. Changes in organizational cultures, – for example towards more agility or an efficient workflow in cross-functional teams – are triggers for my ventures in various industries.
Conflict mediation and working on resilience skills are increasingly part of my mandate.
After graduating from the Rotterdamse Dansacademie, I studied management for art and culture in Utrecht. As the “Head of PR” of an IT start-up in Frankfurt am Main, I then spent four years helping to build up the company.
Since 2006 I have been working as a freelance coach (DCV approved) for various international corporations. In owner-managed companies and technical production and sales organisations as well as in creative and interdisciplinary companies, universities and purely agile enterprises. I have the “Scrum Master” certification and I am a certified business mediator (Zweisicht Freiburg).
Since 2015 I have been a partner of Upgrade Organisationsentwicklungspartner. I live in Frankfurt am Main and have two adult children. I speak English and Dutch in addition to my German mother tongue.
Besides all this I am involved in “junge deutsche fotografie” at “gute aussichten” and the Heike Strelow Gallery in Frankfurt.
