Sjoerd is an explorer. Always on the lookout for opportunities to make life within organisations more meaningful, supportive and inspiring. He strongly believes that leadership makes the difference. Not just in the top of the organisations, but the leadership that’s within all of us.
Sjoerd is a lifelong learner. He loves to read, to experience and to share. Because of his love for reading, he wrote two books on leadership. He lives just south of Rotterdam in the Netherlands. In his spare time, he loves to ride his bicycle to free his mind and get new inspiration. Sjoerd strives to co-create with open-minded people that also seek to make the world a little better.
Sjoerd started as a ship’s engineer, sailing the oceans and enjoying the differences in cultures around the world. After his seagoing career, he continued in a variety of management positions in B2B-markets (mostly in the petrochemical industry). In 2011, he decided it was time to really make a difference and started as a leadership trainer and coach.
Sjoerd believes that there’s always room for improvement. That doesn’t mean you can’t be proud of what you accomplished so far. It means there’s even more greatness in you.
Sjoerd is a licensed Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Coaching coach. This type of (executive) coaching actively involves the stakeholders of the person(s) being coached.
