She has inspiring stories to tell about how she transformed her life (and keeps transforming) after concluding in her late twenties that law practice didn’t fulfill her, how she embarked on a journey of soul-searching and personal transformation and loves to share her stories with those who seek inspiration. When no-one is looking she’s voraciously working on her fiction and non-fiction manuscripts, finalizing her manuscripts.

In 2010 Eline van Veenendaal is trained as Professional Co-Active Life Coach by the Coaches Training Institute (CTI) in London. CTI is one of the few coach training schools to be accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF).

Since 2012 Eline is certified in Advanced Deep Democracy Facilitation – The Lewis Method, a methodology for decision-making (enabling all views and voices to be heard) and conflict resolution (releasing tension and evoking transformation).  This method was created by Greg and Myrna Lewis (South-Africa), when the apartheid ended and democracy began in South Africa. This method is applied succesfully by commercial and non-commercial organisations throughout the world.

Next to that Eline is an accredited specialist in Team Emotional Intelligence Survey (also since 2012), a tool that allows team leaders and managers insight into the dynamics within their team or organisation. The outcome of the survey is compared with scientific benchmarks on group emotional intelligence allowing team leaders/managers and team members to identify key priorities and actions to take team performance to the next level.

Eline started her career at the Royal Netherlands Naval Academy (Officer’s training Sea Service, class 2000), but aborted her training to obtain her Bachelor and Master in International and European Law (specialization Transnational Commercial Legal Practice/International Business & Financial Transactions, LL.M., Utrecht University, 2007).

Last but not least, over the years she has developed a specialty in working with a wide range of generations (from the boomers to X, Y, Z and even younger), as a coach but also as an international consultant, and she’s always excited to build bridges between generations.
