How to improve energy management in a global company?
As a global company known for its special attention for personal development, Atradius wanted to roll-out an energy management program in Europe, starting with their HQ in The Netherlands. The Step-program was designed to inspire all participants, create pride and belonging within the company and promote vitality and agility. Because of the great success we were asked to elaborate this program to the Asian-Pacific region as well. With regional HQ’s in Dubai, Mumbai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney and Shanghai, we were thrilled to see that this program was equally valued and impactful for each of these different cultures!

How do we get the best out of our employees to improve their performance?
EY’s slogan is 'Building a better working world!' Not only for their clients, but also for their employees! We were asked to help creating this wellbeing climate: how to keep balance in a high-sustained performance climate?
New technologies have blurred the boundaries between work and private life. International customers demand 24/7 attention and competition keeps on growing. The heavy mental and emotional strains and higher taxes lead to less engagement, productivity loss and even failure. We started in the Netherlands and helped EY developing the ‘Top Performer Program’ for all partners, and the ‘Fit 4 The Job Program’ for all 3000 employees.
Over a six month period, we rolled out workshops, individual coaching sessions and fast and crisp learning interventions where participants actively worked on their personal energy management to increase their physical, mental and emotional energy and resilience. 85% of the employees became overall fitter and felt less tired after work! Focus improved: EY reported that inefficiency was reduced by 4 hours/week. Time spent on energy-gaining tasks increased by 5 hours/week. Both programs ran successfully in the organization for several years. And were expanded to many other countries in Europe and also to Africa.
After these successes a coach-the coach program for the partners (The counseling family tree) was rolled out globally to improve their coaching skills on energy management.
How to create greater engagement within teams and reduce stress?
How to boost the leadership and coaching skills of the team leaders?
To support Novo Nordisk’s values and ambitions for the next year, we created an tailor-made ‘Acceleration Program’ to move team leaders from ‘push and control’ to ‘pull and empower’, from ‘power of the leader’ to ‘power of the team’. The program was delivered to 200+ sales leaders from 32 countries in 6 different languages. It consisted of 4 modules spread over 12 months:
- ‘The Inspiring Leader’ on how to inspire with purpose and ignite the organisation with positive energy.
- ‘The Team Leader’ on how to build high-performing teams promoting the best mix of team power and individual commitment.
- ‘The Empowering Leader’ on how to empower your troops through a feedback culture, stimulating risk-taking and activating the power of failure.
- ‘The Leader-Coach’ on how to stretch, coach and grow individuals and teams transforming pressure into stimuli for growth.
By changing the leadership style, you change the culture. ‘The Acceleration Program’ enabled team leaders and people managers to develop their coach attitude, leading winning teams, sharing common language and methodologies.

How to create a winning culture when merging companies on a global scale?
How can you produce a winning culture in the middle of an acquisition process, a continuously changing market and fierce competition? Grünenthal’s challenges were to integrate two companies, fight a local silo mentality and develop their leaders for a new reality and future challenges. To support achievement of the aspirations of Grünenthal LatAm - touch 660 million lives in Latin America by 2020 and become a US$1 billion company - and guarantee a future of sustainable growth, they needed to build a high performing organization.
Mentally Fit rolled out a change program in 8 countries, animated 120 sessions and 105 individual coachings for 400 managers. We increased talent attraction, engagement and retention, improved business performance by defining KPI’s and KDI’s (Key Development Indicators) and shaped the cultural transformation process. 92% of all participants was positively influenced by the program and Grünenthal evolved from 82% to 96% in the ‘Great Place to Work’-rating!
