May I introduce myself?
I am Sandra Ball. Born in the United States. I was raised during the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War. I learned at an early age that “You can make a difference.”
‘You can make a difference’
“You can make a difference” is a call to action and an expression of hope. You don’t have to just sit and wait. Change is possible, if you really want it.
I moved to the Netherlands in the ‘80s where I worked in the peace movement, then in neighborhood centers and elementary schools and lastly at Milieudefensie, an environmental group. I have extensive experience as director, manager, coach, advisor, trainer and facilitator of change.
I have always tried to make change happen, not only in my own life, but in the lives of others. The power and influence that I discovered in myself is the capacity to make others stronger. With m-powering, I want to continue this.
What clients say about m-powering
Sandra is an excellent individual coach and team facilitator, including in challenging situations. She demonstrates and shares very extensive knowledge of team dynamics and management, resolution of conflics, coordination and facilitation skills. I have very much appreciated her professional – and at the same time open and warm – manner, approaches and support.
Sandra is a wonderful person to work with for any organization in transition. She is driven about what she wants to accomplish, but has a keen eye what everyone on the team needs to get there. I appreciated her open and clear way of communicating and her good sense of humor.
You are a great facilitator. You are calm and very funny. And on top of that, a great support.
Many thanks to the smart, sympathatic and very experienced Sandra Ball who lead this strategy process for us these last couple of months.
I often hear your voice in my head. I wonder, what would Sandra say? This helps me when making decisions.
Open, empathetic, honest. You show what leadership is, by the way you work.
You really listen to me as a client and make sure you deliver what I request. I really appreciate this.
After this training I found my inspiration again.
