Executive coaching

In our coaching practice we primarily work with highly trained professionals and managers. Our coaches believe that personal development has a direct connection to professional development and therefore significantly impacts upon success and job fulfilment. Pertinent matters, both of a personal and a professional nature, can be discussed in confidence, including confronting issues. Dependent on the matter at hand, our coaches act as a sounding board, a psychologist, a trainer or a consultant.

It’s an established fact that coaching success rates depend on the quality of the working relationship between coach and coachee. With this in mind we offer an initial consultation free of all obligations.

Development programmes

We create tailored development programmes for our clients. This is our strength and our focus, and we think we’re rather good at it. Each organisation, each role and each question is different, therefore a unique approach is required for each and every case - a customised plan is essential for success.

Our approach is grounded in the realities of daily practice and the goals set therein. Furthermore, we ensure everybody’s full engagement - a prerequisite for development. This way, training or team development can make a direct contribution to the work situation.

Main themes of our development programmes:

  • Management development and coaching management teams
  • Effective communication and advancement for both individuals and teams
  • Consultancy skills
  • (Personal) leadership skills

The added value of 3pd’s programmes is not only reflected in the support we offer to achieve results, but also in the reinforcement of the conviction and motivation of all those involved.

Leadership Specials

Leadership is an internal process made manifest in the wider world

In cooperation with the Foundation for Natural Leadership, 3pd organises leadership programmes in the mountains. These trails have been specifically developed as leadership programmes to be experienced in unspoilt nature. They are an unforgettable experience and have an enduring impact on our participants.

Upon returning from the mountains, the key result is a reinforced personal and professional focus and an intrinsic motivation to act accordingly. Our trails are organised as an open programme, but can also be tailored to suit your company’s specific needs. The next trail is planned in the Swiss Alps 26-30 August 2024. Please have a look at brochure leadership trail Alps 2024 for more information.

From a leadership perspective these were extremely interesting times. The impact, urgency of change and the abrupt shift in de environment teams or organizations had to perform in 2020 and 2021 were challenging for every leader. The RE:SET program of 3pd and Minkowski helped business leaders and their organisations to shift emotionally and mentally to the new reality. In the program we reflected on the past year, reset to the present and develop a new perspective and course of action for the future. For more information please follow this link RE:SET brochure.

Our office

We are privileged to work in a building named ‘t Makelaers Comptoir (the brokers’ office) on the Nieuwezijds Voorburgwal in Amsterdam. Built 1633 it was owned by the Brokers’ Guild until 2002 when Vereniging Hendrick de Keyser (the association for the preservation of historic houses in the Netherlands) fully restored the building.

The Brokers’ Guild was founded in Amsterdam in 1612. A broker was an independent middleman between seller and buyer, for instance in the coffee trade. According to guild regulations brokers must ‘act in love and friendship’.

Yesterday’s brokers are today’s dealmakers. And dealmakers form a part of our clientele, perfectly in keeping with the history of the building.
