You can wake me up at night for a good conversation, an episode of House and a packet of natural chips.
My great example is author, coach and psychotherapist Wayne Dyer.
I would like to propagate my mission: everyone has a core, the potential from which you can grow and be yourself.
I am a reliable, loyal, witful, and organizer, an initiator, a go getter, a good communicator and loving.
Personnel is capital in an organisation
Marieke spent about 10 years setting up HR departments in offshore, retail, finance and non-profit sectors. The alumna considers her main strengths to be setting up and structuring business processes from A to Z. In addition, she is always interested in personnel. “Employees are not a cost item, but capital in any organisation.”Marieke goes on to explain that ” when I experienced a burnout four years ago I decided to a (self)-study into behaviour, inspiration, motivation and inspiration. Looking back now, this is the best thing that could ever have happened to me. My company Human In Progress also arose out of these circumstances.”
She likes to propagate her mission in the form of training and coaching entrepreneurs/ managers/ employees in their commercial and personnel development. “We go to through this process of development throughout the course of our lives. Learning from experience, success, failure is “my way of living”, she explains.
My interest? People!
“I am a woman with a passion for life and development. My interests are: People, personal development, networking and ‘finding new ways for spirit and life in organisations’. I hope to write a book on authentic leadership one day”, enthuses Marieke. Her big example is Wayne Dyer, an author, coach and psychotherapist. “One of most successful authors in the world in the field of personal growth. He is also sometimes referred to as the ‘father of motivation’. I hope to combine my work with writing books and articles from abroad one day,” Marieke muses.
Believe in yourself
“If I had to describe my ultimate workday, it would consist of having sufficient time available for reflection. Booking results, but also enjoying everything I do! I would also like to give everyone a tip: ‘Believe in yourself in spite of what everyone else has to say’ ” Marieke says by way of conclusion.
