“In a word, each man is questioned by life; and he can only answer to life by answering for his own life; to life he can only respond by being responsible” Victor Frankl, Man’s search for meaning (p. 114)
With great personal commitment Jan strives for connections. Connections between clients and candidates, between board and management team members and between supervisory boards and management. Where connection happens, value is created.
With an educational background in the fields of Theology and Ethics, Business Administration and Leadership, Jan brings a professional mindset to several expertises that intrinsically belong together. His experience in theology and ethics grants Jan a strong perspective on purpose – the ‘why’. With his background in business administration, he translates this into a solid advice. As a certified assessor, experienced mediator and executive coach, he is capable of helping leaders and teams in their personal and collective development.
In his professional life Jan seeks the connection between meaning and motivation – the why – and concrete leadership behaviour – the how. Responsibility, communication and collaboration are key words. His extensive experience within Search, Coaching and Leadership Development makes Jan a solid and reliable sparring partner for Executives.
“Jan’s advice has helped us reach a next level with our leadership team. The combination of personal coaching and team training fitted perfectly in our stage of development.”
“Besides the results in Executive Search, Jan’s guidance was excellent: strong advice, clear information, managing expectations and working collectively towards an end goal.”
