I am working with people and organizations who are keen to realize their full potential.

I am an executive coach and strategy consultant, psychologist, former World Champion in sailing and author (an astrologist was surprised on how many levels I want to prove myself. My ‘first house’ seems to be pretty full). The past 10 years I’ve specialized myself in the application of Theory U in Strategy assignments 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 and to get experience in formulating my ideas. By now it evolved into a real website, enjoy the read! Love to hear your comments,
