“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ~ Confucius
We are all leaders, at home and at work. Yet we often don’t learn to bring all of us on board in our leadership. Our society defaults to our sharp minds, yet it is our heart and body that harbour a greater wisdom. The wisdom that connects us to our depth, integrity and purpose. The wisdom that guides us, from a deeper place inside of us, beyond what our minds can fathom.
Our minds are brilliant tools. Our heart and body lead us on a path of purpose, clarity and deep connection with life.
Do you want to learn how to connect to your heart and body and build a sustainable connection with them? How to drop into a deeper part of yourself and lead from there? And how to show up more vulnerably, grounded and authentically – in line with your unique values?
Do you want all this, but don’t know how to get there? Come figure this out with me.
I am excited to offer you the roadmaps I know that transform your personal leadership. I will help you tap into the place of depth, wisdom and authenticity inside of you. I will show you how to access these deeper parts of yourself and how to integrate these step by step into your daily life.
Your road map will be unique to you, yet you can stand on the shoulders of many who have come before you.
You will learn about your triggers: what activates you and how to get back to a place of mature leadership. You will explore how it feels to connect to your deeper knowing. You will learn to untangle all the different pulls you feel in day-to-day life and discern which threads are most important to you. You will get what really matters to you and what is just distraction. And you will learn how to communicate all that in a way that lands with other people with respect for different viewpoints and perspectives.
In short: you will become a better, wiser leader. And we need those now, more than ever.
At the core of what I do, and what I ask of clients, are three things:
Curiosity, Courage, Commitment.
Learning about yourself on a deeper level needs a willingness to be vulnerable. But if you are willing to go in, it is so worthwhile. You will feel more connected to yourself, and everyone around you. You will feel more at ease leading. You will be able to give your unique gifts and thrive, in a place that fits your purpose and talents. You will also build more fulfilling, mutually beneficial and productive relationships.
I will support you in going inwards and building that connection to your heart and body, where your deeper wisdom and purpose lives. I do that by mirroring you, helping you see your own blind spots and using my sensitivity to get you more attuned to yourself. Together we will make the unconscious conscious and explore your next steps. From there on we will start building an environment where you – and the people around you – thrive.
If you want to:
- Shift from a ‘head space’ to an embodied space and lead from a deeper place inside you;
- Use all your resources (head, heart and body) to make better decisions;
- Integrate your emotions and move from reactivity to proactivity;
- Build resilience, discernment, agency and personal leadership;
- Have a better work/life balance;
- Learn tools to transform ‘sticky’ situations with respect, wisdom and compassion;
- Create an environment where you – and the people around you – thrive;

Anything you do becomes much better when you bring your heart and body into it. The world needs it. And you are doing yourself a disservice if you do not include these beautiful, wise parts of yourself into the way you lead.
This is how I work:
I start off every potential coaching relationship with a free no-strings attached intake conversation.
We will take 1,5 to 2 hours together to dive into what is working you, where you want to go and if I can be of support in getting there. You will always get more insight into your world and take away at least one thing you can start working with. People have been wanting to pay me for these free intakes because they got so much value out of them! When we are both a “hell yes” to working together, then we embark on our journey.
I work in the moment – because that is where we can see behaviour and beliefs in action. What I do is not a fixed mould or model, nor a quick fix. We will decipher the way you work, the way you operate, the way you tick. And from there on we will design a process that is tailored to your needs.
I work with leadership clients for at least 6 months. Transformation takes time, and it is essential to give yourself that time to explore and evolve. We will meet once every 2 weeks for an 1 hour session, online or at my coaching space in Amsterdam. In between sessions I am available – for topics that have come up, things you would like to share or if you need support or reflection.
My fee for 6 months is € 3.000,- excluding 21% VAT. I am currently offering a discounted price of € 1.500,- excluding 21% VAT if you are funding this privately (as opposed to through your employer).
“The guidance and coaching we received from Anke has made a lot of impact. Her clear and precise outlook on the dynamics in our company and her kind and compassionate way of communicating that what she sees and feels resulted in some big shifts. During the course of the coaching sessions we as MT have really established our roles as leaders of this growing ship that we are steering.
Anke creates lightness and is at the same time very resilient when it comes to the more difficult/ sensitive topics that need exploration. I think Anke is an amazing business coach who can create a lot of value, especially within companies that have a big focus on integrity, leading from a place of trust and doing more than just making a profit.” ~ Tineke Ridderhof, Director, Breekjaar
