Recharge and Deepen: Boost your Batteries

Leadership in this day and age demands a tremendous amount from you. Whether you are a DGA, CEO, (senior) manager or (senior) professional. Your agenda is overloaded and you have to constantly switch between your strategic responsibilities and practical problem solving. Moreover, in recent years the demand for personal leadership has increased enormously. Just giving structure and direction is no longer enough, you also have to personally commit to goals and especially to people. The challenges you face put a strain on your flexibility, private work balance and energy management.

Under the guidance of Professional Coaches

Ella Taal

In 2011, Awareness in Business was founded by Ella, born after a management buyout at her previous organizational consulting firm Second Nature.

For over 25 years she has experience as a coach, trainer and organizational consultant for various clients both at home and abroad. On several occasions she has successfully organized retreats on Mallorca and elsewhere for Management teams, DGAs and CEOs, among others.

Ella will take care of boosting your mental battery during the retreat through coaching sessions and various group training sessions. Ella's experience in teaching successful retreats have led to proven positive results for participants.

Matthijs van der Gugten

Matthijs identifies himself as a passionate mover and pursuer of fitness, happiness and optimism. Purely from that motivation and gradually as an expert by experience, he has shaped himself, his life and his career. 

He is proud owner and founder of Train2B Health, Fitness & Lifestyle Coaching and also of Boost-your-Batteries. Two initiatives that he finds it most wonderful when others reap the benefits. 

During the retreat he challenges people to take the 'road less traveled', knowing that this is going to make all the difference for greater health and vitality. Simply put, the 'road less traveled' is the path of a life full of energy, a way of life based on sufficient, energizing physical activity and a cluster of habits-with stress management at the forefront-that boost your vitality. It is the path of personal leadership and responsibility that leads not only to health and vitality, but also to self-respect and control over your destiny.
