Before starting out as an entrepreneur, I had already gone through at least two major transformation processes in my professional life.
My career took off in 2001 with the United Nations. I then worked mostly in advisory and operational management roles, supporting leaders of governments in this world’s worst crisis regions. 10 years later, I longed for a change. I could not see enough impact with our programs and started to become cynical. Plus, the extreme hardship conditions of some of my duty stations took a toll on my health.
I was determined to bring new value into my work. I connected to my purpose, and then switched my focus – from offering my advice and my expertise as a manager, to instead becoming a mediator, facilitator, mentor and coach. Operating from my strengths, my impact was indeed far greater now, and I continued working with international organizations until 2014.
Then I took the leap to the private sector, the world of business. I sensed that there was a lot for me to learn. Until 2020, I served as Head of Transformation & Leadership Development with an international corporation, bringing in my big picture awareness, as I created and delivered programs for their leaders in 26 countries.
Today I work with senior leaders from all sectors across the globe, helping them and their teams to clearly see and transition to their own new horizons.
