You can read additional information regarding Madeleine van der Steege's unique profile:
Madeleine comes from a family of all entrepreneurs. She first dedicated her career to running a NGO in the field of mediation. In her Master’s degree she developed a Mediation Training Programme which inevitably earned her Cum Laude.
In her current role as head of her organisation she delivers niche Coaching services aligning all layers of the organisation to foster strategic productivity and communication.

Systems coaching is a comprehensive, deep-rooted process that represents a significant opportunity for leaders and organizations to engage in the ongoing learning and change they need if they are to lead their organizations along a path of future sustainability and purposeful wealth creation. Strategic systems coaching combines various coaching processes and combines this with (pre-defined) methodologies for achieving change.
Madeleine (having blended her entrepreneurship, business and coaching expertise) has refined a strategic systems coaching method focused on connecting leadership on every level with the organization (vision, strategy, priorities, productive relationships) as a whole. The means the organization can function better as a whole system.
As O’Conner says, your capacity to lead is enhanced seeing leadership as a phenomenon that is a feature of the whole system and that creates opportunities for connection rather seeing it as a trait or personal characteristic, or as a position of power.
I have worked for many corporate entities but my heart lies with the mid-size organisations. I like becoming part of the ‘family’ in the board room but also down on the shop-floor.
Have personally started and led various businesses and initiatives. I get very energized by taking a business idea and putting the systems and structures behind it for it to grow and succeed.
Gosh I have worked with many different kinds of industries and leaders and never stop learning and loving working with them especially when they create those ‘aha’ moment and remain committed to real change.
Madeleine approaches life and people with warmth and a quiet passion; with a focus, sensitivity and sincerity that uplifts.
At the same time, she is a Master on the topic of Leadership and Organisational Behaviour. As a result, leadership development that takes into account all of the corporate intertwined processes.
Since many organizations still operate in fairly hierarchical structures, the first element of strategic systems coaching is usually executive coaching of the organization’s leadership, only then can real change be possible, and I am delighted to help you get there.
