Floris Alberse Leadership was founded by -how could it be otherwise- me, Floris. The guidance of the leadership projects is largely provided by me. Depending on your development needs, I work together with a team of colleagues: process facilitators, team coaches, an illustrator, photographer, designer, martial artist, pianist.

We need the encounter with other people in order to properly reflect on ourselves and experience meaning. Another person mirrors you and shows you what you cannot see yourself. It is precisely in an encounter that clarity and joy arise about who you are and what you have to do.

We need the encounter

with the other

to learn.

What do I want from life?

Back home at the kitchen table, I was taught a lot about civic engagement and meaning. My father talked openly about his dilemmas as a driver; my mother found her meaning more from faith. We had discussions. I was looking for answers to the questions: what is my life about? Who am I? And how can I influence what is important?

I studied sociology with minor subjects in psychology, history and philosophy in Amsterdam and Berlin. I enjoyed my internship as a career coach at the University of Amsterdam and had many meaningful conversations as a result. I did a second master’s degree, this time in journalism. There I learned to watch, listen and interview even better.

As editor for Pauw & Witteman, documentary maker for VPRO and interviewer for NRC, I stirred in social issues with personal stories about sustainability, integration and natural leadership.

And what does life want from me?

At Nyenrode Business University, I had the opportunity to deliver lectures and workshops on storytelling and leadership. Who are you as a leader? And how can you inspire people with real stories? I experienced the joy of real and in-depth conversations, in which people dare to look at themselves and each other. It gave me satisfaction that leaders started to make more conscious choices.

As a sparring partner, I now meet daily with directors and managers with whom I have meaningful conversations. In search of wisdom, future-oriented and with a focus on development. I combine knowledge from change psychology, organizational sociology and leadership literature. In addition, it is mainly about alignment: to really lead in attitude and behavior, which is why I myself constantly learn in the meetings.

Collaboration covenants

Vanuit In Mundo werk ik met directeuren en bestuurders in het onderwijs. We dragen bij aan het vormgeven van  betekenisvol onderwijs, gericht op de ontwikkeling van mensen met het oog op het welzijn van al het leven op aarde. De hele mens in de leerling wordt ontmoet en daarmee welkom geheten met alles wat er is. We richten ons op leiderschap met impact dat bijdraagt aan gezonde en levendige onderwijsorganisaties.

Voor Nyenrode Business University werk ik als executive coach voor directeuren en bestuurders. Sinds 7+ jaar ben ik verbonden als gastdocent Leiderschap. Daarnaast begeleidde ik senior leiderschapsprogramma’s.

Als moderator ben ik sinds 6+ jaar verbonden aan het European Leadership Platform op de Zuidas. Leiders uit het bedrijfsleven en (semi-)overheid komen bij elkaar om uit te zoomen van hun dagelijkse praktijk, op zoek naar wijsheid in leiderschapsdialogen.

Ik ben CRKBO-gecertificeerd. Ook NLP-gecertificeerd, opgeleid als socioloog en diverse leiderschaps- en therapeutische opleidingen.

The holy grail of change

In order to effectively guide people and organizations through substantial change, I took several intensive courses at Phoenix Training, among others. I got to know myself even better, including qualities and pitfalls.

Learning and development is a process of head, heart and hands. Knowing is easy, applying is the challenge. Wisdom is connecting thinking, feeling and doing. I therefore work a lot experientially with what is here and now, between you and me. I give you direct feedback, because what you show in contact with me may just be related to your patterns outside of our contact.

My clients appreciate the real encounters, my appreciative and confronting questions and the concrete steps with lasting results. You are welcome as a ‘whole’ person: with everything that is, what is going on, all thoughts and emotions.

Core values

Meaning for self, organization and society

Fun and fulfillment by using your talent

Wholeness: welcome with all that is

Development: responding to new impulses

More about me

Getting started?

In an initial session, we meet, examine your situation and development needs, and discuss effective interventions that fit your personal situation and, if desired, that of your executive team or organization.

Leadership track

What can a leadership program do for you? And what are the experiences of directors and administrators who have gone before you?

Not a director or administrator?

I occasionally make room in my schedule for people who are not in board or director positions. This often involves life themes such as love, loss, meaning or personal leadership. Want to schedule a session with me? Call or email me.

Want to stay informed about my offerings around the life themes of love, loss, meaning or personal leadership? Then sign up for this newsletter:


What can I do for you?

Volle agenda?

Het kan er wel eens bij inschieten om stil te staan bij de echte vragen in het leven en leiderschap.

Ik bied je graag drie reflectiemomenten aan: je ontvangt ze per mail en ze duren een paar minuten.

Zodat je je dag daarna met aandacht en focus kunt continueren. En op termijn wellicht meer plezier en voldoening ervaart.

Zin in drie reflectiemomenten?

Uitschrijven kan altijd met één klik. Je gegevens zijn veilig en worden nooit met anderen gedeeld.

Your schedule full of meetings?

Then it can get away from time to time to dwell on the real questions in your life and leadership. This is what I regularly hear from directors and administrators who contact me.

That’s why I offer three reflection retreats. They are nano retreats of a few minutes that I send you by email. So that afterwards you can continue your day with pleasure and satisfaction.
