In 2017, I decided to give shape to my professional work in a different way. I worked in business for 34 years, including 20 years as executive R&D manager at Philips and Signify in various standings and business units. In those years I was trained and received certificates to facilitate teams in their change process.
In the spring of 2018, I graduated (Professional Coach level) from the MMS Coaching Training and received the ICF ACC certificate. Since July 2018 I have my own company(Catch the Tide) and coach people or work with teams. My passion is to support people in their development, to help discover the next step and consequently help to take that step. As such “discover/uncover” (ont-dekken in Dutch) is the overarching theme. I work as a coach and you are invited to contact me to talk about what I could mean to you.
Having experienced myself as an executive and leader to change my own organization several times, I got fascinated by organizational cultures and change management in organizations. I have been trained during my career to professionally facilitate culture change workshops. I conducted multiple culture change workshops per year with various teams.
As a professional coach and team facilitator I use this experience to support and facilitate teams and their leaders. It could be about the effectiveness of the team, collaboration in the team, collaboration with other teams, conflict resolutions, etc. In case of questions about direction of the team, the team purpose or the vision of the team, I use scenario planning to support the team to get more clarity and to define the necessary answers and actions.
I work throughout the country and for certain activities I work in the mountains or on the water. I like to work with other coaches, to develop new programs and continue to learn from each other.
My favourite hobby is (off-shore) sailing, making trips along the European coast and discovering new areas.
