I am working with people and organizations who are keen to perform. They may already realise that being becomes before doing.

I am an executive coach and strategy consultant, psychologist, former World Champion in sailing and author. The past 15 years I’ve specialised myself in the application of Theory U in strategy assignments, team and executive coaching. I love to write about my experiences and to learn who I truly am while sailing.

This site started many years ago as a blog to share my undertakings, by now it evolved into a website where I hope you can find what you’re looking for,
