Everything can be done differently...
even this!

If we spend most of our time comunicating with employees and stakeholders, how much time do we then spend on making this contact more efficient? Get down to making your communication more effective!

The world is changing rapidly on a daily basis; which of course demands reciprocal changes in your organisation. Start now by preparing for this together with your employees; something guaranteed to stimulate your employees' engagement. Employee commitment is key in every organisation. Your organisation and your people are worth the investment; indeed more than worth it.

We do not believe there is such a thing as an ideal coaching method. Any ideal approach would need to be as varied as each of the individuals being coached. MartijnNas.com therefore works with manifold methods, selecting with care what works for your organisation and for your employee. Using the proper mix, talent, facility and motivation naturally float to the surface. Your invaluable capital is your committed employees who enjoy their work.

“Know what motivates you and that you can reach for it; everyone is motivated by something"

MartijnNas.com has developed a training course, programmed over six months, aimed at leaders who wish to promote their employees' commitment. As well as a two day training course in a small group, you will also benefit from five once a month, personal 1-on-1 Skype talks, lasting one and a half hours. In just six months you will have acquired a solid base for achieving lasting results.

Jim Zilverberg, Consultant at KPN Consulting:
“The training was sparkling, challenging and educational, from the first to the very last minute. Martijn manages to create a climate of trust, in which tasks become fun. And the cherry on the cake are the Skype sessions he conducts with you, in which you discuss coaching interviews and questions. The entire course takes place in an atmosphere where honest, positive feedback is given. I really learned a great deal from the course, and I wish others the same happy experience.”

coaching.fwExecutive coaching
As a departure point, coaching assumes you are responsible for your own development. We enjoy facilitating this personal development, whilst uncovering what it is that you really want and from there moving on to reveal the future. The coach will support and supervise the manager in his development. He will facilitate and create the appropriate conditions, help trace patterns and obstacles, assisting with clearing the way and looking toward what can actually be achieved.
You will become more effective and enjoy your work more, will learn to communicate better and work on your personal development. Now who could find fault with that?

Marije Verbeek, Consultant People in Change at KPN Consulting:
“Martijn is a highly committed trainer and coach. There’s definitely a twinkle in his eye when he’s confronted with extremely complex issues: what a great challenge! He uses a lot of humour when helping people to gain an insight into themselves. He also doesn't shy away from confrontation. His approach is to address 'what helps other people best'. And what I find really exceptional is that he never misses a thing: his antennae are highly tuned to picking up the messages between the lines.”

Who is Martijn Nas?

martijnnas.fwFrom professional ice skater with ‘Holiday on Ice’ to guest speaker, trainer and coach; to describe Martijn Nas’s experience as wide is something of an understatement. However, the common thread binding his career is the combined muscle of effort and determination. He has gently enhanced his career with a fair dose of PEP: Passion, Energy and Persistence. All this has delivered Martijn to where he is now and underpins what he provides for his clients.
By understanding what makes people tick, Martijn knows how to touch someone. He enthuses and motivates by using, albeit in a light manner, many anecdotal examples culled from the daily practice in his long career. Absolute key to this process is thinking in terms of opportunities. Considering the possible always ensures an active solution is sought, ensures that things will get moving again.

His working method is characterised by astonishing energy, interaction and the continuous activation of the discussion partner. Thinking outside the box has become his maxim.
Martijn has trained in neuro linguistic programming (NLP) and motivational interviewing (MI), both in the Netherlands and abroad. He has studied among other places at the University of California, NLP's birth place. The combination of NLP and MVG makes Martijn much in demand as trainer, both nationally and internationally.

Hanneke van den Elzen, national sales manager for Abbvie Pharmaceuticals:
“Martijn is decisive, pro-active and infectiously enthusiastic. He's also very involved with the people around him, nurtured by sincere interest. Due to his open approach and good humoured attitude, Martijn is a pleasure to work with. He has integrity, demonstrates a professional attitude and is focused on continuous development; something which he also applies to himself. He makes sure he keeps renewing himself.”
