What do you do today?
My mission and my company's mission is to create safe, open and creative space for individuals and organizations to grow, develop and change. I provide coaching and hands-on trainings to enhance performance and to support development and/or transformation.
How did you get there?
My business and actions in life are driven by a belief that every change is possible – it assumes willingness and awareness. My love for organizations and individuals making up the organizations started already during university studies when I focused on the role of communication in enhancing organizational life. Since then I have worked for 15 years in the internal communication and HR field.
These days I am taking my last steps with my Ph.D. where I look into organizational practices during change and the role of communication in connecting and breaking up the links within and between those practices. The goal is to bring tools to the leaders to support their awareness of what is actually going on during (constant) organizational changes and then coach them and their teams until they are change masters.
Then when once a few years back I found myself without any connection to any organization I realized that different occasions and trainings in life had shown me the way towards understanding the individual – Gordon’s Parent Effectiveness Training back when kids were little, training myself in participative leadership and then I found myself in the very right place learning to be a coach. Now all the dots in this world are connecting again – I can approach organizational life through an individual as well as through an organizational perspective.
