Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel



Assisting organizations in getting the best out of their people, coaching people to get the best out of themselves - that, in short, is what Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel excels at. ‘My passion lies in translating scientific insights into the practice of coaching people, teams, and organizations. This to make your learning and performance more effective, more sustainable, and more fun!’.

‘When environments are constantly changing, we all have to anticipate changing conditions, adjusting to elements over which we have no control. Agility requires steep learning curves, especially during the race; handling your ineffective patterns, realizing your potential, getting the best out of yourself and the best out of each other. It makes great demands upon everybody’s leadership. And calls for a compass to sail on. In that perspective the daily practices of businesses and big boat ocean sailing turn out much the same; in a VUCA world it is all about learning and growing instead of ego and knowing’.
