Goal orientated wandering

Hiking is a striking metaphor for life and work. I have discovered this while writing my book Doelgericht zwerven about my hike from Delft to Assisi in Italy. The book is a source of inspiration for participants of the programs about Personal Leadership.

Sinds het jaar 2020 werk ik als zelfstandige met teams en individuen.
Ik geloof dat als medewerkers zich gehoord en gezien voelen, en iedereen zijn kwaliteiten kan inzetten, je ijzersterke teams bouwt met blije medewerkers én klanten als gevolg. Ik ga graag praktisch met teams aan de slag en met het gedachtegoed van arbeidsvreugde en levensvreugde is dit precies wat we doen. 

Het gedachtegoed arbeidsvreugde is mijn primaire werkterrein.

Sinds het jaar 2000 inspireer ik mensen om op hun werk en in privé hun deuren naar vreugde open te zetten. Daarbij werk ik zowel met organisaties met duizenden medewerkers als met individuele personen, die op zoek zijn naar vreugde. Zo geef ik in mijn werk invulling aan mijn persoonlijke missie ‘Vreugde scheppen’.

Het gedachtegoed levensvreugde is mijn primaire werkterrein.
