Balancing together towards success.

Balancing Act inspires you and your organization to get more into balance so you can realize your objectives efficiently and effectively. 

As the world evolves, it is a never ending act… actually it becomes a way of living.”

Balancing Act offers:

Coaching for individuals & teams.

Are you looking to learn day by day and to continue to grow as an individual and as a manager?  Do you sometimes wish you would have more time to reflect and consider alternatives?  Balancing Act offers you a tailored coaching approach to exploit your full potential.  Progress can be accelerated by integrating the ACT ® measurement.

And are you looking for your team(s) to grow? It is very rewarding to apply the coaching approach and stimulate the development and growth of a team.

Strategy development & implementation.

Do you also recognise that the daily pressure often leads to postponement of strategic reflections?  Or the doubt on the route forward is not yet fully sorted out?  Balancing Act supports you in pursueing the process in an effective and efficient way: structured where possible and more exploring where needed. 

The strategy session is tailored to meet your needs.  And if needed, Balancing Act gives you a hand with the implementation too.


Change management / organizational design.

Do you perceive changes as exciting or do you rather feel resistance?  Are you in a pro-active or in a rather reactive modus?  Change is part of our daily life.  Defining what to change, why to change it and how to make it happen is an important process.  

Balancing Act offers you the support in this process and helps to move in a smooth and broadly accepted way – even when organizational redesign is involved – and implement the change in a sustainable way… till the next change is needed.

My Story

34 years of experience gained in corporate organizations:

Leading commercial roles (Regional & General Management, sales, marketing) as well as leading roles in Purchasing, Supply Chain and Human Resources.

Core competencies developed in leading a team, co-creating a vision, an objective and a strategy and have the plans, measures and culture in place to realize it. 

Genuine interest in the people dimension stimulated me to deepen my knowledge in coaching and in consulting along my careerpath.

My fascination:

Balancing together towards success.

My teacher was Jef Clement who stimulated me with his “inspiring coaching”. His approach is soft and demanding at the same time.
