“My work is always determined by the people I work with. I am passionate about developing people and groups, and my goal is to focus on applying the right qualities, in the right place, at the right time!"
As a trainer, coach and consultant, I am often characterised as someone with a practical, business-oriented approach and a big heart. I have cultivated these characteristics through years of experience in training, guiding and consulting employee participation bodies. I have worked with Works Councils and employee associations, as well as the consultation partners of these groups: directors and/or HR managers. In my view, participation within organisations means collaborating with all those involved, together and/or separately. Because of my background in HR, I can handle the questions of all those involved in the discussion.
I work with people during training sessions, in consultation projects, and when they are looking for support for their consultation situation. I provide support by answering the questions of all those concerned.
I have been doing this since 1985, at first for several organisations, and since 2001 at GITP Medezeggenschap. In 2012, I also started my own agency: La Guida coaching & training, where I provide coaching for people with work-related questions and training in the field of personal and team development. I am also combining my knowledge of HR management and training as a partner in People & Potential, an agency in the field of strategic personnel policy since January 2015.
As a Works Council, you want to be part of a group that is good at cooperating. Working together, taking well-informed, sound decisions. And above all: you want everyone to participate willingly and give 100 per cent of themselves. Regardless of the group, the CT² team has experts with the right connection to your organisation. Mieke van Baalen is just one of these experts; meet the other members of the CT² team:
