The facilitator

Martine Folkertsma will facilitate this course in almost flawless English. She works as a Chief of Staff and holds a Master’s degree in Organization and Leadership Development. She is also a certified facilitator.

Martine draws on over 19 years of experience in International Business. So, she brings broad expertise to the table. She helps professionals elevate their leadership, collaboration, and performance.

Leadership topics explored

In these meetings, the women will explore leadership topics relevant to their development. In the first session, participants will do three things.

  • Determine a personal leadership challenge
  • Establish their objectives
  • Agree, as a group, on seven topics to be discussed over the coming months.

These are on a pre-determined list. These topics include Leading high-performance teams, Executive presence, Diversity and inclusion, Cross-cultural management, and Making meetings work. Participants will also be required to do some preparation before the course.

The final session includes structured peer-coaching to address a personal leadership challenge.

The entire course cost only € 36,00 for library members, and € 45,00 for non-members. It will be held on 9 and 23 October, 6 and 27 November, 11 December, 15 and 29 January, and 12 and 26 February. People need to register, in advance, on the library website.

Everything will, of course, be corona-proof.
