As a background, I am a Medical Doctor and a clinical Psychologist.
I joined into the new world of organization consultancy and training immediately after University, and there I had to learn daily and quickly to grow my knowledge and practice from clients and colleagues. The rest was from studying and training abroad in the network.
When a person or a leader is calling you, they want some advice to have a better understanding on how to make the best use of their qualities at the present or for future.
The same is when you consult to groups.
Having worked at Decathlon Consulting for more than 20 years in 10 different countries/cultures and with a variety of people, I have seen that crafting solutions is the winning formula for working with demanding customers. Professional photography and traveling have well educated my curiosity to explore novelty and the capability to “take pictures” focussing on the meaningful situation you have to work on (with your client).
In my experience, almost the 80 % of our activities are mainly in one (or more) of the following domains:
1. Training to reinforce competence and develop new soft skills and new mindsets to surf changes.
2. Coaching executives or key people to develop/accelerate effectiveness into their (new) roles or when facing disruptive transitions.
3. Team Interventions: a number of activities, mainly making people feel more engaged and accountable, and able to communicating constructively and co-operating when problem solving and delivering.
Why should anyone ask our advice or support?
