I have been working as a leadership and team coach for more than 35 years. And recently also as an author. When I look back on my life, I see one silver thread: I always wanted to try something new, sometimes to the annoyance of the people around me. Step by step I discovered my mission in life: activating people’s full potential. Don’t let restricting beliefs stop you – neither your own nor those of others. Instead, dare to step out of your comfort zone to reach something new.
That is why, in 1933, I founded Bureau Jos Moons. After years of coaching and training in other companies, the entrepreneur in me decided it was time to start out on my own. Since then it’s been thirty years of entrepreneurship, with highs and lows, sometimes difficult, sometimes euphoric, but always instructive.
“The purpose of life is to discover your gift. The work of life is to develop it. The meaning of life is to give your gift away.”
This quote describes what I do in a nutshell: discovering, developing and passing on potential. The needs of the coachee or trainee are always the starting point, not the theory or the model. Personal development and a pragmatic approach with concrete applications: this is what we mean by ‘Personal development to performance’.
Today I live and work together with Greet in a very green and quiet place called Weert-Bornem. Yet my passion remains: to support and inspire people in discovering and using their full potential.
And I am still full of wonder and curiosity.
Since 2010 I live and work together with Jos in a very green and quiet place called Weert-Bornem.
I am part-time office manager/partner at Bureau Jos Moons. My responsibilities include: planning, organisation, purchasing, invoicing, financial matters and non-commercial customer contacts.
The following appropriate quote summarises my life’s vision:
“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
