Co-founder of Leadership & Change Blog, culture change consultant and author
- positive leadership (encouraging abundance and opportunities while staying realistic),
- “natural” organizational change (including everyone and allowing for unexpected, positive emergence)
- organizational cultures that foster openness, trust and kindness to boost innovation, agility, collaboration and thus results.
- New structures of organizing and collaborating.
Let’s move away from employee disengagement, office politics, top-down control and command, stifling micromanagement and bureaucracy, scarcity, work pressure and burnout. It’s time to engage, to energize and to empower ourselves and others – to help develop the world through our workplaces.
That’s why I publish the Leadership & Change Magazine Blog, including a members area with book summaries, video training, white papers, and webinars. I’ll do my best to help you make YOUR difference.
I also co-founded OCAI online (that provides Cameron & Quinn’s validated Organizational Culture Assessment Instrument (OCAI) online) and teach fellow consultants and leaders how to utilize this tool and I consult with organizations in change around the globe.
I published several books: “Nieuwe Helden” (New Heroes, in Dutch) and “Organizational Culture Change: Unleash your Organization’s Potential in Circles of 10” in addition to the Positive Leadership, Culture & Change Collections based on the magazine.
I have an MScBA degree from Rotterdam School of Management and I’m on a permanent personal and professional development journey through workshops, courses, and training. I’m married with three sons and live in the Netherlands.
