In March 1996, I reinvented myself.
I wrote my own Personal Business Plan, and I went from being a Chief Marketing Officer at L’Oréal and Coca-Cola to becoming an executive search partner at Korn Ferry. This all happened because I was fired back in 1996 – there’s always a catch!
Since then, I’ve spent 20 years building my brand as a Headhunter, an Author, an Executive Coach and a Speaker – always with Leadership at the pivotal center and The Personal Business Plan as the ultimate goal.

Courage to Commit is what you show when you make a choice – and stick to it!
Often a certain level of risk is involved and therefore it is even more important to maintain your course. Young people don’t always have to wait till the right apartment, the right partner or the right education turns up. Sometimes you need to choose and then make your choice the right choice. See life as a decision tree and remember: History never shows the alternative, the fork you didn’t take.

Being Learning Agile means knowing what to do when you don’t know what to do.
Recognizing situations when you feel insecure will help you predict such situations and act in the most relevant way when they occur. We all encounter situations that make us feel insecure. The secret is to learn how to deal with them and implement this behavior when faced with adversity. New patterns will form in your mind and actions – and progressively these situations will no longer seem threatening to you.

Why do you need to repeatedly reinvent yourself? Well, during a lifetime you evolve so significantly that keeping the same descriptors simply doesn’t make sense.
You go through many different life phases and your self-perception is often lagging as regards your achieved new situation. You have to kill your darlings in order to proactively profit from new opportunities.

In my family we have a lot of sayings. One of them is “Do something”.
This means that you need to take charge and move in a certain direction – not just wait and see what happens. Another is “both-and”. This means that very often it is not a question of doing either-or, but rather choosing to do both. It’s an attitude where you don’t need to limit yourself – rather, you prioritize what you want to do. Sir Winston Churchill used to say: “History will be kind to me. I intend to write it”.

I am often surprised by how privileged people are unable to see the bigger picture, focusing on nitty-gritty hygiene factors in their lives.
Most people I deal with in my consultative work have done well. By many standards they are successful. However most still have existential doubts and unsolved dilemmas. Most of them still yearn for Freedom, Autonomy and Independence (don’t we all?). And the greatest comfort comes with the words: “Know That You Are Not Alone”.
