“Authenticity is a collection of choices that we have to make every day. It's about the choice to show up and be real. The choice to be honest. The choice to let our true selves be seen.”  Brene Brown

Thanks to my education and the many, many trainings I recieved over the years, I've developed so many skills in social behaviour. I'm in my element whenever I've been given the chance to pass some of those skills onto those who struggle in social environments. Read more


Would you like to go to work with confidence, with energy and a smile? Would you like to be seen and recognized for what you do? Don't you know how to take care of that yourself? I can help. I can help you find out what's keeping you from being your authentic you! Let's talk!

Agile coaching

I love to help teams and organisations with their puzzels. Whether you are in a transition from a more conservative way of working, or if you are already on a path to continious improvement, I'd love to hear how I can help you and your organisation grow towards more effectiveness.

What can I do for you?

I was only in my teens when I first discovered the leader in me. Though I never considered myself a leader, leading was what I did. I've had a few jobs over the years, and no matter what the job description was, I always connected to the people I worked with and found ways to make them think about how to improve their work, their authorship, and their well-being.

I studied social work, in order to add to and improve my people skills. When I started working in IT in the nineties, I realized it were these people skills that helped me stand out and make a difference in many teams. 

When I heard of Agile and Scrum in 2009, I immediately loved it. I really like the invitation to take ownership of what you do and the continuous drive for improvement. I discovered that I have a natural drive to find out what makes peoples eyes sparkle, and I will always search for ways to make that happen.

I strongly believe trust is a key element in highly effective teams and so I made it my specialty to create teams where trust, vulnerability and ownership are the key values, whether they realize it or not.

Both giving and receiving feedback are the hardest things to do in a working environment, yet the most important ones also, if you want to maintain a healthy working environment. If you want to be in a high performing team, not giving feedback is not an option. In my workshops you will practice both the giving and the receiving. You will learn why it is so hard and you will also learn why it is so important. Practice makes perfect, so there will be a lot of practicing and you will see that with a small set of how to's, it will be easier to do. Who knows you might even feel comfortable giving constructive feedback in a while.
