My why

My why is to create better organizations, where people are seen and valued for their unique contribution.

My top values
  • have fun in everything you do
My superpower

To challenge myself and others to take the next step towards a brighter feature. Anything is possible.

Karin Ockhuysen is there for people, leaders and teams who want to put themselves and their people first, because they have deep confidence that this is the key to better and brighter organizations and teams.

Fun facts

The question I always ask my clients:

What step are you going to take today?

The word my clients most often use to describe me:

Warm and positive, result driven, a clarifying thinker.

The funniest praise for my work I have ever received:

A picture of a clients newborn (2 years after just a single coaching session).

The worst piece of advice I’ve ever received (in business):

That’s how it goes here.

Please spare us both the pain and do not even contact me if …

… when you've completely lost faith in the world.

A quote that inspires my work:

Be the change you want to see in the world.

I love being a part of the e2grow community because …

… I came across another club where more professionalism and drive come together and that fulfills my mission for better leaders, teams and organizations.

The perfect lunch:

Sashimi with white wine.

Now, this is annoying:

Feeling stuck in a situation that you have created yourself.

I would not be who I am today without …

… discovering my Clifton Strengths and becoming an entrepreneur

If I were an activist, I would fight for …

… better leaders within organizations

A book so good I bought it for others:
