Vandena believes that getting the best out of people starts by treating people with love, care and respect and found a deep connection to Nancy Kline’s work which is ultimately about being in service of others by creating conditions that treat people with humanity. Vandena has been creating the TE in one on one and team engagements since 2010, and has found that the TE supports a culture of collaboration, co-creation and learning, where different perspectives are valued, ideas thrive, and each person’s thinking flourishes. During 15 years of corporate leadership, this approach has enabled Vandena to achieve breakthrough results.
This deep interest in human performance grew into a calling, one she embraced to become a professional coach. Vandena now offers a professional leadership coaching service where the Thinking Environment is core to the approach as well as leadership development services that centre around equipping leaders with insight and skills to thrive in a complex and constantly changing environments.
Vandena has a Chemical Engineering Degree and a Master’s in Business Administration. She has worked in petrochemical, management consulting and financial services environments and has had exposure to project and program management, operations management, direct and digital marketing, general management, and operated as Exco member.« Back
