The candid, practical coach
For over fifteen years Maximiliaan Winkelhuis has been active as a management coach and communication & leadership trainer. He is a well-experienced support for professionals in the business world, the media, the politics, the government and the world of dance. Maximiliaan knows the art of building up like no other. From his ‘first’ career as a senior communication specialist at leading advertising agencies he transformed into a sought-after coach and trainer in the field of communication styles and leadership. Through the years he added new experiences to his pile. He took a three year study-program in Transformation Psychology at the Dutch Institute for Transformation Psychology and he engaged himself in a two year mentoring program with Shakti Gawain on Hawaii. He completed both studies with three intensives from Hal & Sidra Stone Ph.D. in the USA. He worked intensively with dancers and published a successful coaching book for these professionals called “Dance to your maximum” which has been translated into Russian, Chinese and Korean. Maximiliaan created the “Personality Styles Card Deck”, an easy to comprehend coaching tool based on the Enneagram which he uses frequently in his coaching sessions and workshops. Maximiliaan is up-to-date with personal growth techniques like the Transactional Analysis, personality styles (Enneagram), family- and business constellations (Hellinger) and non-violent communication (Marshall Rosenberg).
