Meet Nadja

Hi, I am Nadja, a former Senior Executive at the world’s largest crisis management organization, NATO. I am also a burnout survivor, a resilient human and a creative writer passionate about painting people’s emotions through the written word.

My mission is to help you achieve Success with Serenity by maximizing your emotional intelligence so that you can excel in all areas of your life with peace of mind! In the 21st Century, an era of disruption and constant change, helping you feel safe and secure on the inside is what I focus on.

I am Dutch; I was born with my heart on my sleeves, my soul on fire and a mouth I can’t control (well, I do control what comes out, but speaking truth to power for positive social change is essential to me). I write about emotions and feelings, you know those things that make a lot of people uncomfortable in the digital age.

I help busy professionals maximize their emotional intelligence so that they can excel in all areas of their lives with serenity!

How others feel about me

“While Nadja is not part of my staff, she has been exceptional in helping ensure that gender diversity and implementing gender perspectives becomes mainstream within NATO. She is a passionate individual with a clear vision and strong desire to help others. Nadja is an outstanding role model for other young female professionals who need the confidence boost to pursue their career ambitions in a male-dominated security environment.”
