(Senior) management of a (larger) group of professionals is a welcome task. My style of management builds on showing trust in all staff at all levels from the perspective of situational leadership: bringing the entire group further by collaboration, coaching and stimulation to achieve. Results are a shared achievement, one that can and should be celebrated together.
Management expertise together with a scientific background provides for a constructive, critical while enthusiastic role in governing boards, management boards etc.
