My experience is that we almost always find ‘surprising spaces’, in which the client finds directions to develop. Once these spaces have been found, change emerges often by itself.
As an Ashridge Accredited Executive Coach (UK), Jelle provides a supportive space for C-level executives and for senior managers/professionals to explore their leadership and business impact and to gain new insights. Jelle’s consulting is always customised to the client’s role and organisation context, and covers a wide range of leadership challenges from organisational dilemmas and change to effective teamwork and productive relationships.
Jelle is passionate about helping individuals and organisations from a ‘third order’ intervention perspective. This means that his support is not only aimed at solutions (first order), but also on insight (second order) and transformation (third order). Research shows that third order changes have a longer lasting impact and lead to more success.
