Leaders in Nature

Who we are and what we do

Founded by Raymond Leenders, Leaders in Nature focuses on strengthening organizations in challenging times, acting as a transformation partner.

Depending on the challenge of our clients we offer the following services: Interim Management, Consultancy and Strategic Facilitation.

We draw on decades of experience in various Supply Chain Management, consultancy and Leadership roles and corporate cultures.

We deliberately do not limit ourselves to specific industry sectors. This because we are convinced of the power hidden in diversity and that other perspectives often yield stunning results.

In recent years, we worked in widely diverse industries: apparel, chemicals, medical devices, marine propulsion and recreation, food, higher education, energy distribution, building materials and aluminium extrusion. In terms of corporate cultures, we have worked intensively with and/or reported to: Norwegians, Japanese, English, Americans, French, Belgians, Saudi Arabian, Germans and Dutch.

We’re known for our enthusiasm, drive, perseverance, ethical standards, authenticity, ability to quickly connect with people (no matter how complicated the situation) and to get people moving. We do not shy away from difficult situations and conversations: they are inherent to transformation processes. We value building and maintaining strong relationships and usually support (although not exclusively) clients for an extended period of time.

Is your organization in a (management/leadership) crisis, overwhelmed by chaos, struggling with strong growing pains, or facing organizational challenges that disrupt collaboration? Then contact us to discuss possibilities in which we can strengthen your organization.

Warm regards,

Raymond Leenders

Interim management

We support organizations who are facing leadership challenges or going through a crisis.

Depending on the circumstances, we guide leaders through a crisis or act temporarily as interim or crisis manager.

We always apply our people-oriented approach: recognizing talents and empowering people. We pay close attention to (psychological) safety, beliefs, (un)awareness, team spirit, corporate culture and steering for (self)leadership.

Organizational & scm

We assist organizations (mostly within their Supply Chains) with transformation challenges and implementing change processes.

Depending on the assignment: we advise on departmental redesign, process/system changes or execute/lead tactical/strategic projects working closely with our clients.

strategic facilitation
strategic WORKSHOPS

We facilitate tailor-made strategic workshops to solve complex interpersonal or business-related challenges with the aim of accelerating your organization.

We use proven methods to make the invisible, visible and tangible. This enables us to achieve groundbreaking results.

Leadership Coaching
leaders & self-leaders

We coach people on their leadership skills: how to become a better business or team leader or how to become en effective self-leader, prevention of long-term absenteeism or as a sparringpartner for business leaders who seek reflection on their approach.

Our coaching sessions usually take place in the open air. Why? Because change requires people to move, discover new perspectives and develop a fresh view on the past, the present, the desired future and how to get there.
