Professionally effective? Yes you can.

Nothing is wrong. Not really. At least not something specific you can pin point. It’s more a feeling that keeps popping up. When you are swamped at work, in conversation with that difficult colleague/customer or when yet another appointment is cancelled at the last minute. When that fight with your partner escalates or when you give it your all, and you receive so little in return. In appreciation and in result.

Where does it come from? That feeling that:

  • nobody notices you have too much on your plate
  • they disgard your efforts, don’t take you seriously
  • they brush of your objections and remarks
  • you feel like they don’t listen
  • they don’t get what you mean
  • or do what you asked them to do

You feel annoyed, under appreciated and tired. You have a short fuse, you are snappy with your loved ones and you just keep running. Simply because you have no idea how to break the pattern.
You wonder:

“Do I have to tackle this? It is not that big a deal. It’s just a phase.
A reoccurring one, admittedly”

And that’s not considering ‘working together’. With that colleague, who has completely different ideas about the same topic. Who speaks a different language, even when you both speak English. Or with your manager, your team and your clients. Relations in which you feel like you are not making any progress. Where obstacles and misunderstandings keep occurring. Where you just don’t understand each other. And because of that, never reach that desired result.

Good news! There IS a liberating alternative.

The key to ‘professional effectivity’ is personal communication. Because HOW you say things, WHAT you say, WHEN and to WHOM, creates and prevents conflict. By becoming aware of that and your personal viewpoint in it, you can learn to master the communication techniques and directly improve and build better relations. Based on respect and trust and taking into account the needs of all parties involved. Across cultures and across languages.

This you will all learn in the 3-day Masterclass ‘Professionally effective’.

During these days, fraught with information and practical exercises, we work on:

  • the power of your own communication
  • your needs vs those of others
  • the influence of power and judgement
  • the influence of emotions and feelings
  • the pro’s and con’s of rewards and reprimands
  • actively listen to others
  • Bringing problems to the table
  • responsibility and building your confidence
  • how to influence conversations
  • dealing with conflicts and emotions of others
  • prevent conflict and deal with emotions of others

“Effective communication, at work and at home, offers a liberating alternative”.

Learned heaps!That you have much more effect when you (…) address behaviour without judging it. And that you-messages are always lousy and can form a person without you realizing it, or have the intention to. And that actively listening is much more satisfying when listened to. And that to listen actively is way better than trying to fix the problem.



I believen that linda found the right balance between sharing/educating on the knowledge and allowing the group (to find) their own answers. There is no overruling hierarchy and that is very pleasant! She also takes the time to give every one their moment. Linda really did it. I am stoked she was able to teach me this much (…) Ik have a lot of respect for her as a trainer.


Drama-teacher and trainingsactor

I found the 24 hours of live practice and feedback extremely useful. It does so much more then just reading the book and choosing the do-it-yourself-approach. Also the maaaany examples of my fellow participants (and Linda) were often very clarifying.


Animal management

“It is nice to take into account the needs and issues of the participants, instead of just working down the program. Linda is very flexible in that. It gives you the feeling you are in a tailor made training.
