“Ingrid has an exceptional talent to understand the bigger picture within organizations. Due to her sharp observation, she is able to analyze the situation, the processes and the needs within teams. Then she knows how to hit the right chord through her careful communication and get people to move constructively. This results in better cooperation between departments and support for changes. I can highly recommend Ingrid!”
Pamela O. – Recruiter & Branding Consultant
“I have done a completely customized professional coaching program with Ingrid Bijl. I experienced the process as professional and of high quality. The opportunity to reflect on one’s own way of working was particularly valuable. Through this process I have taken a step in professionalization of my services and I am now able to advise clients better in increasing the learning efficiency. I have experienced Ingrid as a very pleasant and open person, extremely professional and with a huge amount of knowledge. I therefore wholeheartedly recommend Ingrid to professionals who want to know more about learning, professional development and evaluation.”
Annemarie de Martinez – Director Quadrantadvies
“For those who have not yet worked with Ingrid – she brings more than a resume can describe. Commitment is a container concept, but if you work with Ingrid, you experience the meaning of it. She is able to bring projects beyond what is normally described in the scope. She engages all involved in a personal way, and negotiates with the project team to come up with the best workable solution. She prepares profoundly in no time, so that the first feedback immediately convey trust to others.”
Aad van den Boogaard – Managing Partner Aranea
“In 2014 we wanted to organize our HR policy differently within Glovia: give more space and attention to our employees to develop further and get the maximum out of each team. We started to work with Ingrid Bijl with the primairy goal: organizing targeted training for our employees. However, it quickly became clear that, in the interest of a successful future, we (as a MT) had to look critically into our strategy and vision and that we had to work together in a better way. As of day 1, Ingrid has been very enthusiastic and involved in our organization. She is a professional, energetic person who is committed to achieving the maximum possible results. Many things came to the table during the MT sessions, and communication was broken open by her honest open attitude and critical questions. Ingrid thinks along with you, has the main goal continuously in mind, sets out a well-considered development plan and ensures that everyone thinks along, participates and ‘breathes’ the main goal. We still have a lot of work to do, but we have the guideline and the baggage to achieve this. Ingrid, thank you!
Ayfer Dayi – European Financial Controller Fujitsu Glovia BV
“I have gained more self-knowledge and clarity in both work and private life. I have made clear choices and a clear roadmap for the future. It has given me a lot of insight and I am working hard to implement the result of my new choices with the help of the supplementary coaching program. I can speak of a real RESET.”
Director International Company
“I have worked with Ingrid Bijl several times over the past several years.
Ingrid’s kind, clear, and wise way of working with me has always been helpful in moving me to a next step. Often I have come to Ingrid when I have had dilemmas in my work that felt insurmountable or questions about how to take important steps in my life.
Speaking with Ingrid always opens me up to new ideas and perspectives. I find her gentle way of listening and her clear insights extremely useful in helping me to take new steps.
Ingrid’s work has been of value to me in giving me insight and clarity in times when I have needed to re-focus and re-evaluate my goals and my purpose. She has helped me to find clarity and this clarity is both useful on a personal level as well as professionally as with this new clarity I find myself taking better decisions.
I would happily refer other women in leadership positions to work with Ingrid. She is knowledgeable, clear, and extremely good at helping women to connect from a deep place of knowing. Her work is multi-level, working on deeper philosophical questions, personal issues and practical issues. It is specifically her ability to combine these elements that makes her coaching so powerful, it forms an integrated whole that is useful both in reflection and action.”
Doris Gottlieb – Coach | Consultant | Facilitator
“The most important insight is that, in the course, of time I ‘forget’ how relaxed I can feel when I take rest and pay attention to how I’m feeling. Actually, I increasingly lose contact with myself and the other person. What did I learn and feel a lot again. This helps me to follow my path and stay close to myself. I am going back home charged. I feel like a happy person!”
Tanja van Voorthuijsen – Director Vivare
“Do you feel stuck? Are you stuck in a situation (burn-out, sick at home, etc)? Do you experience anger at yourself and life? Ingrid helps you to get moving again. Like no other, Ingrid can once again bring movement to that which is stuck, in a short period of time. Ingrid is a master in connecting and creating a space of safety and acceptance in which everything is allowed. In meeting with her, it feels like coming home, so that I can experience love again and can get to insight and acceptance. Peace and simplicity is her strength.
Jaco Geense – New Earth Leaders
“I have experienced Ingrid as a pleasant trainer who fulfills her commitments and gives you energy.”
Babette Bajema – Learning & Development Consultant
“It sounds cliché but now that I am back home I can honestly say that I feel reborn. The differences are huge. Because of certain insights I have received answers to my questions and I make conscious choices. Because of the positive developments during the retreat, the wisdom and insights that I gained, I found an enormous peace and got more confidence in myself and in life.”
F.M. – Toprecruiter
“I have experienced that this retreat brought me exactly what is going to help me now and in the near future. The combination of the conversations and the achievement of deep relaxation was perfect. The deep relaxation is very beneficial and brings you life-improving insights. Ingrid works from an inner peace and with a lot of dedication. I can wholeheartedly recommend this retreat! ”
Gerben van der Harst – Chairman of the board. Rabobank Amerstreek
“Ingrid is a professional, an expert in her field and she is able to explain a matter that is quite difficult in a way that everyone understands. Actually, the knowledge that Ingrid transfers, should be in the toolbox of every HRM manager and trainer!
Karin Hornstra MBA – Business Consultant Onlinetrainersacademy
“In our company, we have been guiding highly qualified graduates in traineeships for years. Because we noticed that it was difficult to make the results of the training programs clear, we asked Ingrid to take a close look at the traineeship and make suggestions for improvement. This has been done successfully, both with improvement proposals on the content and on the mapping of results. Ingrid is pleasant to deal with, meets her commitments and the work she has delivered is of a very high quality. In case of a similar question, I would certainly ask her again. I expect that we will regularly involve her in our traineeships.”
Simone van Erp – CEO Team Rockstars IT
“Ingrid has the gift to bring you with a single remark or question to the core of your issue. The retreat helped me get to where I needed to be, to go to a deeper level and feel what I often “forget:” that there is an other way than hard work to achieve results. I was able to feel what I so long for: that I am always supported and I am always able to live and work with inner happiness and in abundance.”
Jolien Slavenburg – director Kernzaken, executive coach Nyenrode University.
“The retreat has given me relief and I have really made a breakthrough. I am more self-aware and feel a lot lighter. I now know what I can do to be better / finer in life. And also have a clear step-by-step plan to put this into practice. I want to thank you very much for this experience and harvest!”
