Facilitator / Coach
My purpose is to connect and inspire leaders to connect to their whole self, so that we can transform and humanize their businesses and unite people. I am deeply passionate unleashing the hidden potential in leaders through connecting to core values, purpose and aspirations. This passion leads to transforming the way leaders work and collaborate with their teams and organization.
Clients say that I bring a unique and powerful blend of results-orientation and focus, a disarming attitude and deep empathy. I create a safe and reflective environment that encourages open and honest dialogue, and creates tipping points for individual executives and teams. I work intuitively, and use myself as an instrument to assess visible and hidden dynamics. Unlocking the potential in people and lead them into a space of “flow” is what I think is the key. Growing up in Malaysia and Norway, I use the power of combining cultures and connecting people in my work.
In her 20 years work experience large global organizations, I lead large (virtual) teams worldwide, of which my last role was Director of Talent Management and Recruitment globally at AkzoNobel. Combining my international exposure, technical background, deep business sense with an inner journey have equipped me to effectively coach many senior executives and teams in different international companies.
I hold several masters; Geology (University of Utrecht), Human Resource Leadership (Rotterdam School of Management) and Clinical & Organizational psychology (INSEAD, France). My INSEAD thesis researched; Tapping into the unified potential of leaders; the key factors that influence the extent to which leaders show their whole self.
I live with my husband and two children in The Netherlands. I love playing squash, socializing with friends, connecting with new people, travelling the world and being outside in nature.
