My Passion and Mission
I get my passion from the people I work with, their stories and both their business and personal challenges.
My mission is to help talented people define and achieve their goals and ‘spark’ their professional and personal growth that will have a positive impact on themselves and their teams. I believe that every person, every team and every organization can reach it’s full (leadership) potential. I do this by helping people overcome limiting beliefs, discover their (inner) strengths and develop leadership behaviors.
Who am I
Words that other people use to describe me are grounded, pro-active, connecting business challenges to people solutions, creative, a sharp observer, a good listener and true professional “
I hold a certification in coaching from the MMS Worldwide Institute and an ICF ACC credential. As well as certified for a number of other instruments such as: a culture scan “Organization Culture Identification (OCI)” from Human Synergetics and a 360 feedback instrument, Assessment+. I have experience with a broad range of other instruments that I applied in my various HR roles.
My professional Background
I have worked in senior HR positions in the international financial services business over 25 years. In this capacity I have experienced periods of growth, mergers, managing during financial crisis, many reorganizations, innovation initiatives and an IPO (listing of a company). In my roles as HR Director and Head of Leadership & Development, I had the privilege to work with talented leaders and individuals from various countries and cultures, in various business challenges, and developed a passion for supporting women in their personal development and in reaching key positions.
During this exciting journey I gained a wealth of knowledge and a truly multi-cultural perspective on ‘Work Culture’, Talent Agility and Leadership Effectiveness. I designed and delivered leadership and capability building programs as well as diversity and inclusion initiatives. I coached high potentials and executives originating from various countries and transformed HR teams from operational towards a more tactical and strategic business focus.
This experience is the foundation of my expertise in coaching and in interim HR management roles. I am able to understand the context and challenges of the individuals working in an international and business context and know what successful team and personal development strategies look like and how they can be accomplished. Aligning HR strategies to the business strategy and operational challenges is a given.
