Annelies helps people navigate change; mindfully and creatively. She is a pioneer thought-leader with a presence-based integrative approach who empowers leaders to get comfortable with what’s uncomfortable. Known as a “radically curious listener”, “masterful conduit for change” and “barrier-breaker” Annelies dives deep to help people just like you; executives, entrepreneurs and professionals in all stages and phases of life and transition to lead change from the inside out. Are you ready to go above and beyond excellence?

You’re invited to have a courageous conversation!

  1. Do you find yourself in transition, standing at a personal or professional crossroads?

  2. Do you suffer from decision-making fatigue or compassion fatigue?

  3. Are you looking for a different kind of success for yourself and/or team?

  4. Do you want to transform your leadership to one that’s conscious and caring?

  5. Do you need a compassionate ear to deeply listen to your visions and struggles when no one else can?

  6. Would you like a co-pilot to help you better manage and fuel outstanding change?

  7. Are you ready to explore what you can’t yet envision?

  8. Do you want to feel free from stress, overwhelm or grief while learning how to embrace calm even in the chaos of change?

Annelies helps people think differently, get present, and learn strategies to cope and navigate change. When you’re present, you’re better at connecting to solutions, to others and to yourself. That’s important if you want to manage change and accelerate success. Executives and emerging leaders appreciate the profound conversations and integrative experiences that transform separation, resistance and limitation into connection, insight and results- that matter.

In an increasingly disconnected world, it’s important to find creative ways to reconnect to ourselves and one another, especially when facing or leading change. Experiences with Annelies are interesting, inspiring and interactive occasions designed to compassionately provoke ingenuity at its best, encouraging people to lead change from the inside out for sustainable growth.

Annelies works with individuals, groups and teams of executives, entrepreneurs and professionals facing transition. It’s all about the process! Enhanced by science, nature, creativity and collaboration, together you’ll explore the wholeness of life, not just the pieces, solving fundamental problems from a unique and refreshing vantage point. With Annelies, critical thinking meets a touch of indigenous wisdom. Moving through change has never been so interesting!
