Magda Hoekman, Netherlands
I love to work with purpose-driven leaders helping them work with the unpredictable. I support them in being adaptive and, at the same time, stay focused on outcome.
My belief is that you can change systems when as leaders you are willing to transform yourself. During COVID-19, I facilitated executive teams in rapidly adjusting the “what”, “how,” and even “why” of their organisations while simultaneously supporting leaders to develop the necessary capabilities. In the last three years, I also assisted schools to implement a more agile way of working and create a more even playing field for all students.
Working in personal development for many years and as a social activist/feminist, I learnt that we are more equipped to create a just and sustainable world when we dare to develop our potential. I get inspired working with courageous leaders who see beyond short-term returns-on-investment and embrace their purpose.
I mostly work online and occasionally face-to-face with leaders and teams in non-governmental organizations, companies and governments worldwide. I hold an MA in Government Policy and Management from the University of Amsterdam, and an MA in International Development from Erasmus University. I am trained in Deep Democracy, Theory U, and Non-Violent Communication.
Renée Ryerson, Norway
I work with courageous leaders around the globe who are making a difference through their work. I am passionate about coaching and the interpersonal practice of Circling.
I am inspired to work with people who are willing to step into leadership with increased love, attunement, daringness and creativity. My clients are able to achieve more through new ways of relating to what is arising around them. The world needs us to be bold in offering our gifts. Every day I am discovering the places in me where I am proud to be living more like this and also see areas where I could do more. When I engage with my clients, I learn so much about what it is to be and do “human-being-ness”. I am humbled and grateful that I get to do this work.
I have been in leadership roles in communities since 2009. I have been professionally working as a coach and facilitator since 2013. I am a Co-founder and Steering Committee member of 57Coaches.org, an initiative spread across five continents providing coaching to innovative leaders exploring new ways of interacting and living.
I have a BFA from Parsons School of Design, part of the New School for Social Research in New York City. Also, I am a Circling Facilitator and Circling Coach.
Sunil Singh, Norway
I am passionate about helping individuals, teams, and organizations achieve their goals in innovative and unexpected ways. As we continue to grow and develop, both as individuals and as teams, I believe that we can not only achieve personal and organizational goals but also navigate collective challenges such as climate change and find meaningful ways to serve others – and express our humanity in an AI-powered world.
In the past, my focus was on achieving my own goals and impressing others. However, my mindset has shifted towards the power of collaboration and the positive ripple effects that come from working together. I am dedicated to exploring how trust, mindfulness, exercise, and nutrition can help us show up with more joy, energy, clarity, and effectiveness in our work and relationships.
I have over two decades of experience in a major telecoms company, where I have spent over ten years working closely with executives, first as a Strategy Director and currently as a Director of Transformation. Alongside my corporate experience, I am an Integral Master Coach, certified Integral Facilitator, and Barret Values Centre Certified Consultant. I have also co-founded and co-led the European Consortium of Integral Coaches and 57 Coaches, where we provided pro-bono responses to the 2015 European migrant crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.
Through my analytical, listening and facilitation skills, I help bring clarity to the problem to be solved, identify the most important dimensions for attention, and find a holistic path forward. The path forward is based on current capabilities and a realistic view as to how the individuals, team or organization could develop to achieve its goals.
My academic background includes an MBA and MBI (Master of Informatics) from Rotterdam School of Management (Erasmus University), as well as Master’s degrees in Engineering from the University of Cambridge, Université de Technologie de Compiègne, and Cranfield University.
