About Fleur:

After my corporate career I started my own business: to unleash the growth mindset and drive the attainment of goals and innovation at startups, SMB and corporate organisations. The seed was planted while working at Google. What I loved most at Google was learning about the growth mindset and having the opportunity to develop mine. The growth mindset is a powerful mindset to achieve any goal.

A growth mindset is the belief that talents can be developed, through hard work, good strategies, reflection and input from others. With this mindset any challenge can be faced and people who have this mindset tend to achieve more at work and in life in general.

Once we met, my growth mindset and me, we became inseparable. I also felt everyone should discover their own growth mindset. Not only because the growth mindset supports creativity and innovation, but also because it is liberating to let go of the fear of failure.

In my practice I use design thinking and lean startup principles and tools to train and manage teams and organisations to not only drive innovation and achieve their business goals, but also to develop their growth mindset in the process.

Seeing people transform in the process and actually coming to great ideas fulfills me and gives me a lot of energy.
