When Aristotle said "We are what we repeatedly do“ he reminded us that the impact we have on others and the world is largely determined by what we do… again and again. This means that managers constantly need to ask themselves “What is the right next step for us to take now?” To answer this profound question well and have the impact they want to have managers must develop mastery in presence, focus, reflexivity, ethics, connection, and thinking together.
I support my clients in developing and finetuning these essential personal and collective practices through three interrelated activities:
I support Board members, CEOs and other senior executives and managers to improve the quality of their individual leadership, master difficult people dynamics, address complex strategic or organizational change issues.
I coach leadership teams to increase their strategic clarity, their ability to think and perform together, their role modelling courage, and their ability to mobilize others to create voluntary engagement.
Together with selected experts from my worldwide partner network I help organizations to increase their level of engagement, speed, agility and innovation.
I consult worldwide across a multitude of industries, both in the private and public sector.
I have taught mindfulness and leadership at Saïd Business School – University of Oxford, organization change on the Ashridge Masters in Organization Change, and leadership at Management Centre Europe, EFMD and IMD.
My clients say that I am very relational, challenging, risk-taking, practice-focused and theory-based, international, and highly experienced and competent.
