Philippe Bailleur, experienced guide for organizational transformation & author
Marieke succeeds in further paving the way for people who really want to get to work with organizations. Taking into account the societal challenges that exist and that some "leaders" turn a blind eye to. What is encouraging about Marieke's book is that she sought out leaders - whom she rightly calls healing leaders - who are already walking this path. As a result, impeding arguments like "too idealistic, naive, won't work anyway, ..." melt away like snow in the sun. And perhaps therein lies the greatest satisfaction for an author who dares to pioneer. Thanks for your courage, Marieke. Thanks for putting the spotlight on people who make a difference in the field and adding the necessary concepts and reflections.
