The person you are

“Leadership is not about the crown you wear. It is about the person you are”. This note from Simon Sinek reveals my inner intention and purpose as a coach. So what do I do?


With my coachings, I inspire Leaders, Organizations and Startups to benefit from their emotions by enabling a new understanding of leadership.


After some Coaching Trainings (Transactional Analysis, Innovation-Coaching, Life-Coaching, Supervision and Burnout-Coaching) I started to work with the concept of Daniel Goleman. His 12 emotional competencies will make you feel like coming home to yourself. If you want to complete it, you take a touch of the pioneers of self-kindness, Kristin Neff and Chris Germer. If you add what they call Self-Compassion, leading will become fun to you.

Understanding of leadership

My network and me - we believe leadership can enable both a stronger bottom line and better lives. This ‘best of both worlds’ philosophy guides my actions and stirs my passion. We know great leaders inspire people, move them and drive emotions in a positive direction. This task applies to leadership everywhere, from the boardroom to the shop floor. CEO and HR can tell that a new people culture is needed. Therefore, leaders within the organization will play a key role in the transformation process.

HR and Leaders

HR leaders are not the 'learning people' but instead, strategic partners with business leaders., like Josh Bersin says. They should create strong ties between HR and business leaders.

In order to create a new peolpe culture they should

  • Reach out to senior leaders to get input on challenges that are critical for future leaders.
  • Facilitate the constant exchange of talent-related information to enable better talent decisions.
  • Develop a business unit-specific leadership strategy, aligned to the company’s overall leadership strategy.
