25 years ago, in 1994, I founded Heartmatters. My passion is to connect people with themselves (bridging the head with the heart) and with each other. I published several articles and two books ('Personal Success' and 'Head meets Heart’) around this topic. My focus is on individual coaching and designing and delivering team journeys and leadership programs. I have delivered programs in the US, Europe, the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
Next to my independent practice I am a senior affiliate advisor with Aberkyn. Aberkyn is a community of change leadership facilitators. Our purpose is to develop leaders who improve the performance and health in their organizations and are a force for good in the world. Aberkyn is part of McKinsey & Company and delivers large scale transformations that require a change in both mindset and behavior.
I am also an associate with Leaders Quest. LQ is a social enterprise taking groups of global leaders in Quests to countries like India, Brazil, China and South Africa. A Quest helps them explore the world, understand global issues from other peoples’ perspectives, learn from inspiring people and re-examine purpose for themselves and their organization.
In addition to the above I have designed and co-produced the Heart@Work program which facilitates a collective search for core values and is produced in close cooperation with music, theatre, internal branding and communication specialists.
