I coach introverts who feel underestimated or misunderstood. Understanding how people are wired and leveraging diversity are very important to me. It was the reason why I ultimately chose to become a coach.
I have been doing (and am still doing) a lot of self-development, in various ways. I completed a Masters degree in Journalism and New Media at the University of Leiden and completed an Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership. I was coached to eventually take the step towards entrepreneurship and am currently certifying myself as a Coach Practitioner (NOBCO/ EMCC/ EQA) via ICM.
My approach is characterized by a mix of scientific insights and practical exercises to allow people to explore the area outside of their comfort zone. I like to step outside of my own comfort zone by doing improvisation theater and speaking in public.
Book about introvert leadership
I am currently writing a book about introvert leadership, which will be published by Van Duuren Media in November this year. The English translation will be made available via Amazon. In this book, I explain what introversion is, what the current views on good leadership are and what prejudices introvert leaders have to deal with. Interviews with introvert leaders from around the world illustrate the power of introvert leadership.
Do you want to unlock the power of your own giftedness or introversion? Or do you want to leverage the full potential of all your employees by zooming in on the different personalities? I'm available for in-company training, workshops, coaching and speaking opportunities. Simply contact me for more information.
