Steven Haine

The basis of my passion for guiding people and for leadership was formed in the five years that I worked as a tour guide in Latin America, South Africa and Southeast Asia. This laid the foundation for my relational and experiential approach.

I gained many insights into group dynamics, and my first-hand experience of cultural diversity within the groups and in the countries we visited taught me a lot about myself and others. 

To build on what I had learned, I entered the bachelor programme “Intercultural management and international communication” at CIMIC.

I then took Outward Bound’s “experiential learning and process guidance” open training program to further hone my ability to use experiential process-based approaches, and I subsequently started working for them on a freelance basis, facilitating on a number of (international) change and leadership projects for profit and social profit groups. 

In 2003, I began using Appreciative Inquiry as a fundamental part of my approach. I undertook a training course and further study assignments with Herman Wittockx, a professor at the Nyenrode Business University. My CIGO training (KUL and University Hasselt) was strongly inspired by the AI, as was my week led by Ron Fry at Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, where AI originated, which encouraged me to further embrace the methodology.

I have also taken a number of intensive coaching trainings – “Inspiring Coaching” and the master class “Coaching of people and identity questions” at the Center for Self Management – to further develop my coaching skills.

Since 2013, I have been a program manager at the Nyenrode Business University in Breukelen, the Netherlands, designing and facilitating the Senior Leadership Development Programme.

My international experience and language skills allow me to work regularly in English, French and Spanish, in addition to my mother tongue of Dutch.
