‘Our past experiences with our parental guardians and caregivers form the foundation of our (personal) leadership. The level in which they preceded us in their willingness to show themselves and challenge us determined how we learned to connect and handle our vulnerability. On a deeper level, it determined our ability to view the world with an open heart, therefore enabling us to experience life’s true beauty. Each person’s journey is unique and certainly varies between men and women.’
The interview is published in the Journal for Coaching in December 2018 in the series ‘Reveal your authentic self’.
