My personal belief is “if you blend in, it becomes mediocre”. And it becomes contra productive when it comes to diverse and inclusive cultures. My coaching is based on my own path in mind and the strong belief that we need people who stand out. Together we look at the barriers or patterns that makes leadership ineffective and average. The added value for the company thrives on authentic and intrinsic motivated people.
