Persoonlijk

I am a very driven person in all I am and all I am doing. Never give up and try to combine this with a human aspect; no individual result is better than the performance of a team. Find out what motivates people and help them to run that extra mile, to step out of their comfort zone. Try to get them to the next level; personally and for the company as a team.
I believe that nothing is impossible, as long as we all have the same goals and understand why we strive for these set goals. This is how I like to work and run my position within a company. Sharing the right information makes my team act with the right motivation and with passion. Keeping 4 simple questions in mind: Where are we? Where do we want to go? How can we accomplish that and always keep in mind: Why… And dear to ask what do we want to accomplish today?
Try to work SMART: S – SPECIFIC / M – MEASURABLE / A – ACHIEVABLE / R – REALISTIC/RELEVANT / T – TIME. It is not in my nature to run behind the facts, think smart and always act if you are already in the next step.
