In order to get more out of your company and truly unleash your full potential, you must be willing to fundamentally change how the work is carried out. It’s not enough to optimize existing processes and procedures by reducing errors, eliminating wasteful steps. It requires changes in how your company operates at the core level and using new principles that fits better with the changing world. They include: creating self organising teams, finding intrinsic rewards to motivate your people, giving back to society, embedding continuous improvement, and using collective wisdom to make certain decisions. This will enable you to adapt better to changing market conditions and social needs. It leads to a substantial increase in people engagement, innovation, creativity, performance, and results.

Linda understands how to develop, scale and change an organization. Linda has an eye for talent and easily empowers team members. She has as strong business acumen combined with people skills. This combination of skills make her an ideal business partner. Linda is not afraid of change and will initiate change wherever she sees growth opportunities for both people and organization.
Eveliese Luiting – Chief People Officer at Engaged People
Linda’s approach “happy employees create happy customers” has been proven to be working because she recognizes the strengths of each person and pushes to focus on those. Linda is also capable in bringing people together, from different departments, or within departments, to collaborate – she will encourage people to work together even if they didn’t think they could.
Tamir Dotan – Delivery Director at Backbase
Linda is one of these rare leaders that can combine great people management with true leadership focusing on the best business results. It’s easy to be business-focused and take tough decisions, and it’s easy to care for your people and protect your team in a genuine manner, but it’s very very hard to combine the two while staying believable and reliable. She’s the personification of the ‘can do’ credo, always looking at opportunities rather than being slowed down or distracted by obstacles.
Kees de Koning – Practice Lead B2B eCommerce at Emakina.NL
Working with Linda I have seen her orchestrate huge organisational changes on an international level. Scaling a team from small and local, to hundreds of people all over the world. Linda’s main strength is her focus on people, it’s rare to see any manager or leader willing to burden themselves so much to ensure the people working for them are able to always achieve their best.
Chris Whitcombe – CIO at LDMS
Linda’s ability to recognise when to give teams space, and when to step in is excellent. This means you can lead your teams effectively, knowing that there is support there when you need it. She’s fantastic at getting the most out of people, but doesn’t shy away when tough decisions need to be made. Growing any knowledge based organisation rapidly is always challenging, and Linda has demonstrated and inspired teams in a timely, fun and efficient manner.
Tony Coleman – Office of the CTO at Temenos
I had the chance to work for Linda… Or I should rather say WITH Linda. This very important distinction is in my mind the best way to summarise who Linda is. Her sincere human presence, her capacity to consider and care for her teams makes any hierarchical relation vanish, she truly leads instead of managing. She also coaches extremely well by using her many years of great experience.
Alexander Schoen – Digital Product Manager at Pictet Group
Linda’s natural talent at cultivating empathy truly inspires mass action, empowering global sense of achievement. She leads by example, she’s a decision maker when needed and delegates when she effectively sees a chance to develop team members, even beyond their own belief. I personally owe a lot of my professional and personal growth to Linda. She definitely taught me how to avoid the fears of my own weaknesses, which overshadowed my confidence in my own strengths.
Fernando Gonzales – Senior Software Developer
It's surprising to see how much inefficiency there is in most organisations. Businesses that don't focus on innovating their operations have a hard time surviving in the faster changing world.
The world is changing faster and faster. These changes force companies to constantly reinvent themselves. The traditional way of managing people don’t fit this need. They enforce formal rules and procedures, where top-down decision making is the norm and people are primarily motivated through extrinsic rewards.
Operational Model Design
Operational Models of the past slow us down. It prevents creativity, self expression, innovation and decreases motivation and productivity. Companies struggle to keep their people engaged and aligned and equipped for the future. To stay one step ahead of competition there is a need for flexibility and agility.
The Operational Innovation Cycle is a incremental approach to achieve your goals while innovating the core of your organisation.

My Way of Working
an incremental approach
Continuously searching for new and better ways of doing work has been the number one driver throughout my whole career. As a developer I was intrigued by adopting agile ways to improve the way we build software. As a leader I became a strong advocate to innovate the way people are managed and work is done by continuously improving the way companies operate at their core level.
It is my passion to make companies more adaptable in a world that is changing faster and faster, to improve performance and quality and to provide an environment where people can take more ownership and reach their full potential.
