Roeland is a driven and precise professional when it comes to organizational development. He combines his strong analytical skills with an in-depth knowledge of human behavior. He understands the corporate reality and manages to translate psychological concepts in such a way that they become practical tools for improved business results. He is detail oriented and always clarifies why he chooses a specific intervention. This creates a safe and productive learning climate. It is a pleasure working alongside him.

Bevlogen en een zeer fijngevoelige trainer

Roeland heb ik de afgelopen 10 jaar leren kennen als een bevlogen en een zeer fijngevoelige trainer en coach. Vooral zijn tone of voice, nuchterheid en persoonlijke aanpak in combinatie met humor hebben voor mij altijd geleid tot direct toepasbaar resultaat voor zowel mijn zakelijke omgeving als privéleven. Ook middels de training Momentum die ik afgelopen maand bij hem heb gevolgd heeft Roeland mij de bewustwording gegeven van het pure hart van mijn gedachte. Ongeacht de fase van je leven kan ik zowel Roeland als coach, als de training Momentum iedereen van harte aanbevelen ter ondersteuning op de beleving van je eigen inzichten.

It was tailored-made to fit our needs

Roeland was recently invited as a coach to a newly formed leadership team, and he was GREAT in helping us make head-ways in being more effective individually and collectively. Instead of a conventional teambuilding session, he worked with the team to realise areas that we need to improve right on the spot and applied tips on real-life scenarios. It was tailored-made to fit our needs, and that left a positive effect on the team. 

With his pragmatic approach, flexibility and excellent facilitation, he was a delight to work with and I would be happy to engage with him again!

Thanks for allowing us to open up in a safe environment

I thought it were 2 great days, really solving our issues of the team. Thanks for guiding us, and allowing us to open up in a safe environment, and moderating the discussions. It was impressive to witness your communication skills, and how you were guiding us in the discussions to where you wanted us to be, it was fun seeing how structured your approach was, and how well it worked.

De teambuilding heeft veel inzichten en zeer zeker stof tot nadenken gegeven.

Ik vond het hele leuke en interessante dagen. Het heeft veel inzichten en zeer zeker stof tot nadenken gegeven. Ik heb de ervaring dat het niet altijd vanzelfsprekend is om na dit soort team sessie naar buiten te lopen met het gevoel dat het echt iets gebracht heeft. Dat vond ik nu wel! Daar heb jij echt je toegevoegde waarde gehad. Ik vind je een goede observator en je interventies zijn goed. Je weet de deelnemers goed de spiegel voor te houden. We hebben veel gedaan vind ik maar ik had niet het gevoel dat we gejaagd door de agenda heen gingen.

I have no hesitation recommending Roeland.

I worked with Roeland shortly after I had assumed the leadership of the Innovation Center in Ghent. As the new leader for an established team, I wanted to take some time to agree on how we would work together and Roeland was recommended as the facilitator. The event was very successful in relaunching the new leadership team and Roeland was instrumental in this. The preparation using the principles from Lencioni was excellent and provided a great framework for the discussions. His style of leadership through the meeting was insightful and he was not afraid to address the key difficult issues and hold a mirror up to our discussions. We still reference the model and how much we learnt of each other as individuals and continue to build on this awayday. I have no hesitation recommending Roeland for this type of team engagement.

The training had a “Wow!” effect on the team

4 months after go live of a major reorganisation, we wanted to reflect on the journey so far and adjust our plans and ways of working going forward where needed to reach our strategic destination. After focusing in the first months on what  we wanted to achieve, it was time to start focusing on growing the competencies of our new supply chain team to operate together, with one shared team ambition. We focused on the desired behaviors and mindset to successfully collaborate within and beyond the team, and to be highly responsive to customers’ needs.
The journey so far had not been easy for all of us in the team. This transformation asked the team  for adapting to a collective ambition, highlighting the critical need to connect end to end and collaborate to deliver team targets and high effectiveness in service of customers. Beyond, personal trajectories were also impacted by the change of organization and most of the members were reporting to a new manager, which both from the start created some tensions. Prior to the training, Roeland asked us for taking the Lencioni team assessment. Results confirmed there was room for improvement, that we could get a great value of the training.
I wanted myself to make this session a key success for our team on the journey of becoming a high performing team. I knew that I would have to “put my skin in the game”, to create the conditions for growing trust with my team and show the example, to release positive and constructive behaviors. And I did! The training had a “Wow!” effect on the team; beyond being an eye opener on the dynamics within the team, the session offered to shared great moment where everyone showed some vulnerabilities, which in return ignited some authentic behaviors based on trust, and commitment. Of course, after the session, the journey continues, and, using some tools provided in the training, we keep the fantastic momentum created in these both days.
Roeland did an excellent job leading the session and creating the conditions for the “magic” to happen. Of course there was nothing magic in what he does and brings, but preparation, long experience and deep  understanding of people. But the magic was the so-far-unseen behaviors and opening up between the team members during the two-day training session. Definitely that session unlocked a lot of everyone potential!
