Labels that best describe my work are Leadership– and Organisation Development.
I believe in Building better Futures through the development of better leaders, better teams, better organisations and better solutions.
Better meaning stronger, fairer and sustainable.
Originality, clarity and dedication are part of my professional signature.
Originality in learning- and process design that opens up hearts and minds.
Clarity when culture, mindsets and politics take over from reason and what we know is ‘right’.
Dedication through my belief that leaders, businesses and public institutions have the potential to be a force for good.
With boards of businesses and public institutions I find and implement best process and practice, bridge cultures and develop strong leadership. This work takes me to four continents. Africa admittedly got under my skin.
In China my given name is WeiTchiSe: he who makes impossible combinations.
Prior to my current field of practice, I was responsible for Computer Sciences Corporation’s (CSC) executive learning practices in Europe.
In my early days I worked in rural Zambia as a science teacher, followed by managerial positions in Secondary Education in the Netherlands.
A page-turning experience in my professional life was the co-founding of ELA~n in 1992, a pan-European network of practitioners in the field of Leadership and Learning.
I hold an MSc in Biophysical Chemistry and a degree in Business Informatics.
