Awake Leadership


Make impact by being yourself
enjoy success and fulfilment



Leadership, in essence, is about who you are

This time needs Awake Leaders in conscious, focused action

How do you reach success and fulfilment as a human being, team or organization?

Life is great and full of complexity, uncertainty and constant change too.
There are always challenges in our busy lives, like overal pressure of work and private, keeping up with fast-pace technological progress and dealing with unpredictability, for example of a pandemic or global tensions.

All developments in this 21st century also make this a time of collective ‘spiritual awakening’. You can see this through how we engage in personal development and the search for meaning and purpose on a large scale.

Early adaptors and younger generations are looking more from the perspective of what is good for the greater whole and act from higher levels of awareness.

Awake Leadership is about a conscious life as a human being, from a spiritual perspective. So that you develop a beautiful ‘quality of being’ from the connection with your own deep core. From here you will bring your amazing contribution through your actions. When your mind, body and soul are aligned, life will unfold by itself and show you the way to success and fulfilment.

Do you recognize yourself in this?

  •  You want to contribute to the larger whole in a positive way without being found ‘airy-fairy’.

    The split between your feelings and intellect is sometimes difficult. You want to make spirituality (maybe you do not use this word) understandable and practical, to use it in concrete and effective ways.

  • You know that there is more inside of you then is now coming out and you want to work on this.

    You can’t get your own vision and strategy completely clear, have difficulties realizing it or can’t get others along. You do not use your time, attention and energy in an optimal way. You are in your own way or hold yourself back. You want to break free from certain patterns and develop your ‘quality of being’.

  • You experience a general pressure that hinders you in your performance and relationships.

    With all your different tasks and roles, it is a challenge to do everything right and to keep everyone (including yourself!) happy. Despite success you often have a restless or even empty feeling, or you don’t really know what it is that you want as a next step.

  • You are too much in your head (IQ) and you want to balance with the more human side of life (EQ).

    You are looking to deepen in authenticity, connection and the essential human factors that contribute to your leadership, successful cooperations and meaningful results, in many different ways.

  • You want to contribute to the greater whole by achieving your potential, ambitions and dreams.

    You want to make impact by being yourself; strong, vulnerable and with self confidence. You believe in a new reality and want to be an inspiring example. You wish yourself (and team) success and fulfilment.

Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom

My name is Simone
I support you in Awake Leadership

Inner work. Outer impact.

After a successful business career and a big burnout/ personal crisis, I became an entrepreneur in 2012.

Working with me is about:

  • Sustainable transformation from within
  • More conscious choices in thoughts, emotions and behaviour and more trust in your intuition and wisdom
  • Better relationships and more effective cooperations

Practical spirituality, mindfulness
and emotional intelligence are the fundament of who I am and what I do.
With this, I stand for success and fulfilment.

 Important focus areas for Awake Leadership are:

  • Rest is an essential “quality of being’ that you develop for the connection with your deep core. 
  • Relevance is making impact that really matters. Contributing to a greater whole. Engaging your heart and soul is the recipe for freedom and happiness.
  • Results are achieved from your clear vision, strategy and focus. Action is important for success. As long as what you do comes from who you are in essence. This is where your fulfilment comes from.
  • Now is exactly the right moment for action. 
    bring yourself (and your team/ organisation) success and fulfliment. Why would you wait?

Simone has been more than a facilitator. She has been the guiding light taking the group through the incredible journey  of understanding what mindfulness is and how practicing could have an extremely positive impact in our lives. We felt grateful to have the opportunity to learn from her experience. She has demonstrated such a professional and, at the same time, such a human approach, that we forgot we were in a training session. It has been really a life changing moment for most of the people in the room and we will be always thankful for having the opportunity to meet her.”

The Search Inside Yourself training I took with Simone gave me great tools, both work and private related. This is a must for everyone that is looking for a more balanced life or is struggling. SIY provides a mindset that makes you resilient in many situations and phases in your life. A very good basis to  step back, adjust and move forward. Simone is a very clear communicator and engages you step-by-step.

In a modern company culture, mindfulness has an important role to play in associates health and company achievements. Simone has helped us to roll-out the Search Inside Yourself program and supported us in the success we have seen with the sessions. The program is packed with scientific findings to illustrate the benefits of mindfulness and emotional intelligence. It has been exciting to work with Simone to realize how powerful mindfulness can be in a work environment. Simone always comes with great positivity, ready to improve the processes and fresh ideas to ensure the best outcome. We have educated more than 500 participants in PVH and heard a lot of positive feedback from associates, many seeing the program as a gift.

Simone is a modern spiritual guide with a tailor-made approach. She provides a comfortable safe space for her clients to share their challenges. The way she explains sometimes difficult concepts in simple, easy-to-understand terms has been very insightful. Simone brings relevant advice and ‘food for thought’ on how to live life in the way that we want.

The Awake Leadership training contributes to both the personal and professional developments of our employees and leaders. They received new tools to listen consciously and to connect with their surroundings in an attentive way. Also really being heard. This stimulates the emotional side of leadership and generates a part of increasing awareness. Thank you for the very valuable training Simone!

In times of hybrid work models, team efficiency in regards on how to engage and build trust is ever more important. Simone's approach of marrying strong concepts with awareness works great. This training made a real difference for the team!

VP Group Business Development


Simone is very strong in looking at the individual and to know what this person really needs, She is capable of going into the depths with you to shine light on the underlying issues to transform them. I can honestly say that all private sessions with her have been worth every euro. Her personal approach and corporate background make Simone the ideal coach in these times in which we all look for a new balance.

Victoria Chong

Owner & Senior Recruiter


Simone really helped me a lot in activating the power-woman within me. She knows how to ask the right questions, actively listened and motivated me to follow what feels good to me. She is always full of understanding and very concrete. She gave me important new insights, without telling me something, so that I could really learn a lot about myself. She gives very good tips and exercises that match to both my professional as my private life. I still use these. I have made key decisions, that I would not have felt confident making without the sessions of Simone. I advise anyone who wants to work at themselves to contact Simone. I still book maintenance sessions with Simone and I am always amazed by how recharged, inspired and full of courage I feel at the end.
