The leaders that are and were most influential in my life, all have several things in common. They connected with and invested in me, they showed character in challenging situations and they knew where they were going.
Gregory Bateson – British anthropologist and social scientist – developed the six logical levels model during the second half of the twentieth century. In this model he explains how Identity and Mission are crucial to the way we function and for our personal development. It is essential for everyone of us to know who we are, what we want to represent and what we are aiming for.
In guiding organizations and individuals in developing personal leadership, Mission and Identity are recurring themes. Coaching, virtual training, training on location or a live or recorded webinar, in all these I apply and adapt abovementioned essentials to the needs of my clients. Sometimes I work alone and at other times I involve other coaches and trainers in it.
In any way, character, connecting, mission and identity are elements you will encounter in my way of working.

The training is a combination of a clear theoretical framework and a practical approach where participants are learning by doing. This enabled us to quickly adopt and apply what we had learned. Jeroen easily connects with the participants and, where necessary, gives them constructive feedback in a pleasant way.

Robbert Vroomen, Value Engineer, ProRail
Jeroen has helped me tremendously to think about the goals I want to achieve both personally and professionally. More important, he helped me become who I want to be. The exercises Jeroen used, forced me to think about and listen to myself. In the sessions I had with Jeroen, he knew when to challenge me and when not. Very valuable coaching for everyone who feels that there is more to get from life!
Alex van Gogh, Product Marketing Manager
I thought Jeroen would answer all my questions. After 3 sessions I realized Jeroen was asking the questions and I was the one talking. I gained much self confidence by hearing myself talk about solutions. I learned that my progression could help others. Someone I know, asked me if I had taken a course in effective communication.
