I'm educated as an electro-mechanical engineer with a specialisation in automation. In the beginning of my career, I worked within this technical field and experienced what it's like to be in different management and leadership positions. Additional training and specialisations in the areas of 'industrial engineering', 'lean management', 'management consultancy', 'master coaching' and 'playful coaching', led me to become the founder of The Happiness Factory (since 2011), a company focussed on boosting your business by helping ambitious leaders to reach more in an easier way.
With this background and my permanent study to keep up with the latest trends, I have the skills, the insights, and the experience needed to work with ambitious leaders, while staying in touch with the technical and business side of the context we're working in.
In essence, I'm a coach. However, coaching is such a broad concept and it can be performed in so many ways, that when you are in search of 'a coach', you still don't know what to expect from that 'coaching'.
If you choose me as your 'coach', you opt for a very unique approach; because everybody human being has a different skill set, different experiences, a different way of looking at things, and a different way of working.
By choosing me, you choose experience -I'm a certified MasterCoach since 2007-, you choose an entrepreneurial approach -I founded The Happiness Factory in 2010, am leading 2 other companies and 1 foundation-, you choose 'accountability & clarity' -read below why that's in my nature-, and you choose someone who has earned his spurs in the most challenging of industries -automotive, R&D, logistics, food, and services.
So what is typical of me?
Are you looking for extra direction and guidance, and are you prepared to take matters into your own hands, starting from a positive approach and ready to work hard and focused?
Then there is a big chance that we will get along very well!
