About me

'When I see people grow, I enjoy it. Everyone has so much to offer! At the same time, many feel limited because they do not come into their own in their environment. During our deployment to Seoul in 2002, I also struggled with this. In a strange and difficult country, with a young family, I set up my own business. My grip was my inner knowing that I am responsible for my own happiness and success. When you open yourself to what presents itself in the here-and-now, you take advantage of the most beautiful opportunities. That is personal leadership.

42. Dorine About Us


'After graduating as a business anthropologist from the Free University, I started working in marketing communications, including at BP and Philips. After our time in South Korea, I took several trainer and coach courses. After 10 years of experience providing leadership training at large companies such as ASML and Philips, I now also work at SMEs and government agencies as an expert in building teams. In addition, I am a leadership coach and perform as an inspirational speaker.

I described my unique approach to building a high performing team in my book "Feeling for Inspiration.
