Leadership Coaching & Business Consulting

Transforming growth, innovation and results in international companies & professionals

through inclusive & authentic leadership

What we do

Do you want your change or transformation initiatives to get the results you envision?

Or would you like your employees to perform at their best and work in innovative ways while sharing common values, objectives, and contribute to your results and mission?

Research has shown that diversity of thinking increases innovation by 20% and enables groups to spot risks,

reducing these by up to 30%

Transform your culture and business performance to the next level

I help you to bring your diverse teams to the next level where connection, communication, collaboration, creativity, and innovation are encouraged, as part of your transitions or transformation efforts.

I also help to strengthen your cross-cultural competencies, set up a plan to train and coach your teams or leaders individually and improve your results, effectiveness, and alignment in your business or leadership.

The focus is to translate soft measures into concrete results and making sure that your change initiatives are successful and sustainable.


My clients are entrepreneurial, innovative companies that operate in dynamic, international environments. I work with (starting) teams that face company transitions, transformations, or mergers/acquisitions.


I also provide 1:1 coaching for ambitious mid-career professionals who are ready to improve their soft skills, cross-cultural management skills, inclusive leadership skills, or create their authentic leadership style.
