Purpose - How Decisions in Life are Shaping Leadership Journeys with Purpose
As a leadership consultant I coach leaders to find and embrace their purpose. When you see your personal 'meaning' and that of your company to the greater cause clearly, life becomes more beautiful, more transparant, richer. Telling those personal stories inspires.
With this in mind 22 inspiring people, connected in http://www.oxfordleadership.com, took the initiative in 2019 to write down their own personal stories and by publishing those stimulate leaders to also share their stories. That's how this book was born. I am proud and grateful to be one of these 22 wonderful - or should I say "wonder-full' - people.
Writing about my purpose and the journey that made me discover it, and sharing my stories, really feels like 'coming out'.

Five frustrations of project managers
In analogy of Lencioni's five dysfunctions of teamwork my dear colleagues and friends Marieke Strobbe, Leo de Bruijn, Menno Valkenburg and I wrote a series of articles in 2015 and 2016, in which we explore five regularly manifesting frustrations in project management. The articles are published in the magazine Projectie, the magazine of IPMA, the International Project Management Association.
March 2017 the four of us published our book around the five frustrations! A magnificant, powelful condensation of our experiences, both in the Dutch and English language. We are proud of the proces to get there, and the result!
