What do customers say about us?

Feedback is very important for us. Here you can find testimonies of our customers.

New kind of leadership

I was blown away how total commitment to transparency combined with openness, warmth and a clear strategy makes business leadership so successful. Never before in my life did I experience this kind of leadership and I could immediately connect.

Swantje Schmid

Making choices

TL is a different leadership training because themes such as gossip, accountability and taking responsibility as a leader are so clearly presented. In addition, it makes clear that training leaders is ‘simple’ but not easy to achieve. Subjects that are interpreted in the organization are substantiated in what it requires of you as a leader to get to that desired stage and what you do and do not want to allow in your organization. I would recommend TL because of the above and to all leaders who want and dare to make choices for the organization. Those who want to be aware of what establishing a relational culture requires and yields.

Henriette van Dort, Hamewith Talent Development

Deep impression

Sometimes you have those training courses that leave a deep impression on you, simply because they help you to shed a light over all your business activities and to proceed from a clear vision and strategy. That was the Transformational Leadership training for me. With the right focus I can now continue to build on my new company, my team and myself.

Marije van den Berg, author, speaker and event coordinator

Call for transformation

Change is happening all around us with an increasing pace.


New technology is booming, reducing the need for human labour. The complexity of the financial systems becomes too much for humans to grasp. Competition is mostly based on price and the focus on productivity is fierce. Many people become burnout.


In this context, we see a new, countercultural, transformational leadership emerging. Leaders who yearn to be real, doing the right thing, connected to their calling in life, storytellers with a heart and mind to change the world into a better place.

Always be honest

There is no worse mistake in public leadership than to hold out false hopes soon to be swept away.

Winston Churchill

Get rid of your box!

It is time to come out of your box. Beyond the box in itself is not enough, the box needs to be erased from your system. Instead you need to focus on purpose, the why of your business.

Be prepared for change in order to direct yourself and your business to your purpose.

Brilliance is pretty much always risky!

Your role as a leader

As a leader you will function more effectively (and have way more fun!) when you create an environment that brings all the ingredients that you need together. Challenge yourself to go beyond your comfort zone and to expect the unexpected!

Do you see it?

Often we are so in the moment that we cannot really see what is going on, especially when under pressure. That is why we advise you to keep asking for honest feedback from your team, peers and leaders to keep improving. Not all feedback may be true, but all feedback is relevant! You have to see it (knowledge), in order to own it (attitude) and then you can change it (behaviour)! All change...
