Effortless and authentic leadership.
As a leader, you try to lead others in the direction of one or more meaningful goals. Leadership is the process in which you influence others and maximize their efforts to achieve a goal.
Authentic leadership means being true to yourself. Leading with integrity and transparency. And aligning your words and actions with your values.
Being an authentic leader, you know how to connect with yourself. You’re aware of your own strengths, weaknesses, values, and goals. You know how to connect with your body. And therefore you’re able to lead from both your head and your heart.
Leadership means taking responsibility for your own feelings, emotions, and reactions. And being open to learning.
Effortless leadership starts with being authentic. The word “effortless” in this context does not mean that it will always be easy. It does mean you don’t have to take on a role. It is sufficient to just be yourself.
Leadership is both a skill and an art. Versatile and challenging. To most people, it does not come naturally. But with the right guidance, you can learn to confidently take your position as a leader, even when things get tough.
LEADING WITH CONFIDENCE
As a manager or leader, you are your own ‘instrument’. The foundation of effective leadership lies in self-knowledge, which allows you to lead with confidence.
FOCUS ON TEAM DEVELOPMENT
You will discover what your team needs to develop. You will learn about the different stages of team development and the different leadership styles you can apply.
IMPROVE YOUR DECISION-MAKING SKILLS
Lack of self-confidence and fear of making mistakes will prevent you from making effective decisions. Coaching will help you make better decisions.

Frequently asked questions
For whom is Leadership Coaching intended?
Our Leadership coaching programs are intended for managers and executives who want to further develop their leadership skills. It does not matter whether you have just started in your first managerial role or have been in charge for years. However, I would advise you not to enroll in one of the programs prior to gaining first hand experience as a leader.
Leadership coaching is also ideally suited for entrepreneurs. Whether you have set up a company independently, manage together with a co-founder, or are part of a management team – the program helps you understand and strengthen your leadership style.
It is possible to participate in leadership coaching individually, as a duo or as a (small) management team. For larger teams, an (in-house) leadership development program will be more suitable.
Not sure what suits you best? I’d be happy to think along with you.
What is the difference between Leadership Coaching and a Leadership Development Program?
The basis of Leadership Coaching consists of individual coaching sessions. When you participate as a duo or small management team, there are some additional team sessions. The sessions usually take place at Growth Center.
The basis of our leadership development programs lies in a number of sessions together with the entire leadership team. Teams are usually larger (4 or more). And the program is tailor made to meet the teams needs. Sessions take place in suitable team coaching spaces, outside of the normal office environment. In addition to the group program, individual participants have individual coaching sessions. Depending on the program and group size, I will work with one or more other leadership coaches from Healthy Company Consultants – experts in leadership.
If you have any doubts about what suite you best, I’m happy to think with you.
On what leadership model is your Leadership Coaching program based?
Although a number of effective leadership models will be covered, we don’t see any of these models or theories as best suited.
The reason for this is that we will work with your unique personality, background, experience, and skills. The assumption that there is one way of leading that works best for all of us does not suit our vision on leadership development.
In addition, I believe that authenticity and the ability to adapt your leadership style to changing environments is a key to success.
If we had to choose the most influential framework on our leadership development program it wouldn’t be a leadership model. It would be systemic work.
How much time will I spend on the Leadership coaching program?
A leadership coaching program consists of 6 to 8 coaching sessions. Each of these sessions lasts about an hour and a half. You will work on a number of assignments between sessions. And get your theory. On average you will spend about 4 hours per two weeks on the program.
When you participate as a duo or small team, two group sessions will take place.
