For fifteen years I have been guiding individual people and teams in organizations to strengthen their power and impact. I love to see people and teams step out of 'small' thinking into something BIG. All growth and development starts with experiencing your own strength as a person, as a manager and as a team, in all your fibers.
From thinking 'small' to thinking BIG
If you make contact from that place with your ambition, your dream, your ideas, your vision of what it could be like, and then take note of all the challenges and obstacles you have ... then everything becomes possible. This approach generates the energy and decisiveness to actually tackle matters for both individual leaders and teams. A magical process that gives me goosebumps every time. My dream is to fill every workplace with passion, fun, wanting to mean something for each other and the thrill of achieving results together.
For more than fifteen years, In my 'previous life', I worked for large international companies (such as Kimberly-Clark and Intersafe-Groeneveld) as a business manager, (interim) merger manager, sales manager and marketer. In these roles I have been able to lead teams through heavy weather and towards change. I feel comfortable in large, complex and international organizations.
I am enthusiastic, energetic, warm and have a great drive to get things off the ground. My way of working is tailored to the person or group I work with, in a facilitating role. Always changing as a supervisor, coach, trainer or consultant. Not as an expert in a white coat and glasses, but always mainly from myself as a person. I don't like conventions and just want to be real. Bring what I have in-house in terms of knowledge, experience and tools. And also feeling and intuition. With a healthy dose of fun and lightness. I like to be constantly on the move and to discover and study new (scientific) insights. I am averse to dogma and I have enormous confidence in the positive end result of every process with leaders and teams.
In addition to working for Stach, I work as a freelance trainer for Schouten & Nelissen and I have shaped the professionalization of colleagues for eight years as Community Leader of the Dutch Co-Active Community.

“I notice a difference in how I feel towards other people. I am more concerned with myself and what I want and feel in a positive way instead of continuously thinking for the other and controlling potential conflicts. I also really feel that I have a lot less 'war' within myself. That is very nice and quiet! Louise, thank you very much for the beautiful moments during our coaching appointments. It was not always easy, but I did not avoid difficulties and you did not let me go. I believe that soooooo much has happened and changed for me personally. Let's put it this way ... I got up from the bench, took off a heavy coat and hat and started walking towards the horizon!Marjolein, Sales Promotion Manager at an international consumer brand
“Louise was very helpful in aligning my personal and professional goals. I now have more understanding for my employees and can now communicate better with them and motivate them. I have developed a more structured way of working and I have been able to successfully address all business challenges. The coaching has been instrumental in my further development as a manager. Thank you!
