Who is Hilde

My nearly 30 years of professional experience with change from within, global cooperation and cultural diversity enables me to easily connect with people from everywhere , in all kind of positions, and in their diverse situations. I am truly interested to hear people's stories, and not easily tired of posing questions and searching for answers. Thus creating dialogue on how things are actually going, and finding out what is needed for arriving where you want to be.

My primary motivation is to see individuals, groups, organizations bloom and bear fruits according to their full potential. To detect this potential is the thing I truly enjoy: helping to get rid of un-helpfull patterns, restricting habits and overcome barriers withholding to move forwards. Not as a one-off intervention, but in a process, leading to sustainable change.
