Calling all leaders, whether you are a CEO, function head, team leader or project lead.

I work as an organisational psychologist to help companies balance people, planet and profit. I try to uncover perspectives that keep leaders stuck and build up energy to change in a way that is real, personal and value adding to all stakeholders in their setting.

Leaders often want to sponsor these projects, because they feel that the organisation benefits from the credibility, depth and business impact of the solutions. 

In the last 20 years I have worked with leaders and their teams to cope with change: make sense of chaos, understand their role and focus on what needs to be done to work for all stakeholders.

I have developed the psychological wellbeing-test because healthy, sustainable organisations are more profitable and a better place to work.

Warm regards,


Are you a leader like a CEO, COO, manager, director, team leader or project coordinator? 

Does this role give you so much stress that it leaves you depleted from all your energy. Do you feel that your battery charging stand is so low that you could sleep for a year?

Do you feel grumpy, irritated, frustrated or like a failure? 

Hi I am Niels van Steenbergen and I work from an organization psychology background as a coach and consultant. 

Sometimes clients call me the elephant man because I help them to see, understand and solve the elephant in the room.

In the last 20 years I helped, more than 500 executives like you to cope with their “leadershit”: leadership issues that give stress, make you sleep bad or make you feel uncertain, lonely or depressed. 

In my book stress-free leadership: I present a 7 step model that already helped many leaders to take up a role that is more effective, focused and fun. 

It not only makes you a better, but also a more appreciated leader!

I’m looking forward to explore the elephant in the room with you during the coaching

Kind regards Niels

“De essentie van stressvrij leiderschap is om het impliciete expliciet te maken"

“Hij heeft mij geleerd om het impliciete expliciet te maken en daarmee de groep de tools te geven om zelf verantwoordelijkheid te durven nemen"

Sander Janssen,

“Hij weet het op een lichte manier te benaderen" 

"Niels kijkt  onder de oppervlakte van het leidinggeven. Als psycholoog analyseert hij de onderbuikgevoelens en onbewuste processen die hierbij een rol spelen. Dat is geen makkelijk onderwerp, maar hij weet het op een verrassend lichte en concrete manier te benaderen.”

“Zijn benadering levert mooie nieuwe inzichten op"

Ondanks dat ik regelmatig stilsta bij de teamdynamieken en na ga waar blokkades bij mezelf en bij anderen zitten, levert de  benadering van Niels mij mooie nieuwe inzichten op. Door niet te stoppen bij de observaties en reflecties, maar op grond daarvan hypotheses te formuleren én te toetsen. Stressvrij leiderschap vraagt om aandacht te besteden aan de processen die er toe doen”
