Hello world!

Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edit or delete it, then start writing!

When you start a website, this is the first post already created by WordPress. And no, I dit not delete it.

This is not my first website, however this is my first really serious attempt to start my own business. Actually, this is not really true, I have always worked as it was my own business.

This is the first time I have chosen myself as the starting point, the highest priority. I work for a great employer (FedEx, TNT before) that agreed to make an exception to my wish to work less. I now work 2 days a week.

It took some thinking and planning of course. Kids on there own for a couple of years already and together with my lovely soul mate living in a big house, paying a serious amount to maintain this standard of living.

It took some (not so nice) personal/family circumstances and a very busy job as director to get myself into a burn-out. On hindsight, the best thing that happened to me in the last few decades….

Cutting a long story short…. We sold the house, bought a small house in stead, said goodbye to approx. 70% of our possessions, made the new house our home as quickly as possible.

And started my own business (XL-Growth); in fact I started two. About a year ago I met my business partner during a coaching program. We started Leadership 360 together and have already our first client Рa Dutch multinational Рwhere we guide and develop the global IT team. We share the passion for leadership and development, helping organisations to become (more) Agile and working from only a few theoretical models, but enriched and  complemented with our experience. We share 60+ years of experience in various areas.

A great adventure is starting.
