OUR INTEGRAL APPROACH TO GROWTH

We believe that people are the key to growth. Successful entrepreneurship arises in connecting people and business goals. This starts with recruiting and retaining people who believe in the company’s mission and are attracted to the culture. Giving them responsibility and inspire them to connect to the vision and business strategy at a purpose level. Supporting them with good business leadership, and a clear, flexible structure. This stimulates and facilitates people to accelerate sustainable growth.

Founded out of passion

People like us was founded in 2017 by Agnes and Robin, based on their shared belief that people are the key to growth in an organisation. For some time now they have been strengthened at the core by Melissa and surrounded by a growing network of experts. Together they are committed to giving people and organisations the energy, ideas and tools to make maximum use of existing talent, and to create a positive working climate where impact is made with pleasure.

“Inspiring others to utilise their natural talents, aligning people to shared goals, facilitate in establishing smart collaborations and inventing new ways of co-creating positive impact is what I love to do most. I love working with entrepreneurial people, who dare to invest, care to make a difference and have fun along the way.”

As a generalist, I connect the disciplines of psychology, coaching, strategy and innovation in an integrated approach.”
