Who is Elsbeth?



Elsbeth is a seasoned executive coach who likes to challenge the status quo in the boardrooms. After working as a HR director in various Dutch, international, tech oriented companies, some 13 years ago she started her own company, The Pink Walnut. During the past years Elsbeth has achieved lasting results with over 300 people -1on1 and groups- who choose to grow on a personal level. Who choose to change their behaviour.

"People are 100% responsible for the way they operate in life. We are born creators. We have to deal with circumstances, of course, but it's you who decides how to deal with them. Oftentimes, we seek solutions for problems which surfaced because we did not dare to have the required conversation. We seek solutions for problems that wouldn't occur if we did have the necessary conversation. Isn't that time-consuming and costly!

We turn to new systems, procedures or structures, but the fun part is, all systems work. It's the people who don't.

"Back in the days I was HR responsible in mid-sized international tech companies. It always puzzled me why when the consultants and coaches left, after several months the organisation would circle back to their old habits and results. Only minor things shifted and the few people who really got it, got demotivated and left!"

That's what I stop from happening in my coaching. Clients experience lasting and swift changes in their lives and businesses. Because of my profound deep listening skills they start to see what they could not see before and are therefore able to choose different  actions. They change their ineffective behaviour and oftentimes even can laugh about the bullshit they told themselves once it becomes clear!

Elsbeth is certified Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centered Executive and Team Coach as well as certified practitioner of the Global Leadership Assessment (GLA360). With this partnership her track-record in creating results is now measurable, stakeholders are more involved and yes, results are guaranteed. Unique in the coaching business!

Elsbeth values integrity and prosperity and is happen to share with you what these two actually mean for her and The Pink Walnut.
