Maarten van Heeswijk (’57)


People, teams and organizations need others to develop.

This was for me the reason to start MaarHees Coaching & Consultancy.
By using my experience in successful management in both the business world and in top sport as well as my own professional development as a senior coach, I can contribute to the development of others. To challenge and support others. “Promoting self-management” and “personal responsibility”. Both individually and in a team.

I use coaching, team development programs, coaching leadership, workshops, business development and Insights Discovery. I also work together with various specialists.

On my own life, with highs and lows, I met many people who were trapped in their own convictions and could no longer connect with their environment or their collaborators. This resulted in energy loss and tension. This can lead to dysfunction and burnout. So I felt I needed to do something about it.

Since 2009 I have been connected as a professor and personal coach to the ‘Master in Coaching’, one of the top courses of the Johan Cruyff Institute.

Business & Sports
For 20 years I have enjoyed working in the management of a stockholding steel service centre with various warehouses in the Netherlands and Norway. Within this organization, the challenge was to deliver a continuous customer-focused profitable performance in a changing market. A balance between processes and people tailored to the needs of the customer. A continuous customer-oriented mentality!
As a player, coach and team manager in hockey and golf, I have experienced various processes at top level as well as individual development or stagnation. Team dynamics, team development, ‘making individual choices’, mental resilience, profit & loss

Terms and Conditions
I conform to the conditions of the Dutch professional organization for coaching (NOBCO).
