Our 2014 board members by last name in alphabetical order.
Chris Hollanders, MA
People, their growth process and how they deal with change, intrigue me. Everyone has his or her own story and I like to challenge people to come up with their own answers to realize their potential – this empowers, motivates and results in supported, living solutions. Builds responsibility. Creates happiness and fulfillment. I work with change processes within organizations like Rabobank, ABN AMRO and Delta Llyod Insurance where I coach individuals and teams, as well as the organization itself. The main theme is creating value for people and the organization, in the broadest sense. Currently I’ve been selected by the retiring director to take over the consulting company from which I work and to design the organization of the future: flexible, community & network based, technically smart, with new leadership. A great opportunity for me to apply coaching leadership. I hold a Masters Degree in International Management from Maastricht University and the Akademia Ekonomiczna w Krakowie and postgraduate degrees in Professional Coaching, in Labor- and Organizational Psychology and in Corporate Storytelling. I am Lean Green Belt certified and have recently done workshops in Holacracy and in Systemic Work in Organizations. I’m planning to get a degree in Organizational Constellations next. Degrees are one thing, I also value the art of learning through self-reflection. No better school than life. I love traveling – it puts me in a minority position that acts as a great mirror. Additionally I travel through books and my meditations. I enjoy writing and cooking healthy food. I’ve mastered perfectionism and am a skilled procrastinator.
