Founder

Carla Maria has a master degree in Business Communications at the Radboud University of Nijmegen and completed the Academy of Theatre at the University of Applied Science in Tilburg. She is trained in Narrative Therapy and Counseling, Voice Dialogue, Transactional Analysis, a certified Jung Type Index (MBTI) trainer and specializes in wellbeing at the workplace (trained in evidence based CSR-method -which stands for Chronic Stress Reduction). I mainly work in an academic and technical context and occasionally in an educational environment.

I have a sharp eye and ear for behavior, drivers and intentions which is the result of my constant interest and therefore learnings about what motivates and moves people. It makes me a playful and clear coach and trainer in Leadership and Personal Effectiveness. I am  asked to moderate workshops, develop tailor-made courses and learnings for different target groups in the field of Personal Leadership, career development and well-being, and to write and direct plays in communities in the Netherlands.

“By founding the School of Narrative Leadership, I hope to contribute to greater understanding and acceptance of one’s self and others around us, connect and communicate on a clear and more considerate level and to broaden one’s own perspective in a lighthearted way and inspire others to so as well. This hopefully will:

  • contribute to a safer (working) culture;
  • which improves a healthy learning environment;
  • which opens up talents, willingness and possibilities;
  • which helps a greater and sensible output.
