Over 40 years of experience with teams

I have known team sports since my youth.  I understand professional athletics from the perspective of a national and international team player and that of a coach.  All of the important factors – accountable Leadership, creating an atmosphere where you are motivated to develop,  a healthy competetive culture, a functioning team,  transparent communication – can be applied 1:1 in the business world.  In both sport and business, the foundations for a successful team are identical.

As our coach, Harold would always give us players lots of trust and room to develop.  For me personally, this was very motivating and gave me much confidence in the games.
