What do others say about me and my coaching?  Annelieke has a keen eye for Human Potential and the potential of organisations. She has the gift of touching the essential through deep and intelligent listening and connecting from the heart. With her background as a passionate leader in various government organisations she combines vision and intuition with down-to-earth practicality. She picks up on the dynamics that are at play and helps you find an opening time and again. She knows how to let you come to your own answers. That makes her a great training and coaching professional.

 As a consultant and strategic sparring partner Annelieke has the uncanny ability to tune into the emerging future and from that place facilitate what wants to come into being. She inspires trust and encourages you to go beyond your comfort zone and bring your purpose into the world. Being able to navigate with confidence in uncharted territory and lead from a place of true inner strength is the gift of working with her

Anything else about Me  I am here

 And while I am here, I will lay my path alongside yours

 And for a moment I went back to the Gods to negotiate

 And they said: that is not how it goes

 Open your heart and listen to the bigger song

 Then sing your own humble song

 And just know that the river will take its own turns time and again

  (Gerdine Smit/Wibe Veenbaas)

What inspires me most about the HP approach?  The Human Potential assessment tool provides a base for meaningful, value driven conversations with individuals and within organisations. The HP approach has great possibility in empowering people and organisations in bringing their own, value adding, unique colors, flavours, gifts, services and products into the world. The world needs people living their full potential who purposefully follow their dreams and are passionate about making a difference. The future of our children and the planet may depend on them.
