George guided me during my transitions to an executive board position. His support was very valuable, especially in getting my vision clear, shaping a new management team and management group, and subsequently guiding the process of going from vision to action with my managementteam.
I warmly recommend George to develop your leadership, especially when entering a new executive challenge. George is a warm individual who can build on his own broad experience whilst showing his vulnerability. George has impact.
Director Dijkzigt, Erasmus MC
George and I worked together over the course of three months to coach me through my first-100-days at Erasmus MC. George is a real professional with a very personable and disarming attitude. I left our sessions with a clear sense of direction. He coached me through the process of understanding my priorities and then the process of developing a plan to achieve my goals. Working with him was a pleasure and an eye-opening experience. I Highly reccommend George’s first-100-days program to executives and CEO’s.
George has a very good ability to ask the right questions and he listens intently to the answer to really understand the individual. The venue of TilliT in Sweden is idyllic and perfect to escape completely as George deliberately “peels the onion” to get to the core. I did not find this very personal experience easy but the true reward was arriving home to be told by my wife I had a new sparkle in my eye and a better sense of perspective.
George is good at simplifying complex situations and summarizing detailed discussions in concise sentences. He is creative and works solution-oriented. The approach is transparent and tightly planned, using carefully composed work groups, so that the "normal" business processes can continue without too many disruptions.

For me, George's strength lies in asking difficult questions. I am not always grateful for that in the moment, but afterwards I am. He checks the consistency of new plans with previous judgments; he asks about the implementation of plans; he urges me to pace or slows me down, depending on what is needed.
What I see as one of George's strengths is that he is both very present and can disappear in the wings. Although you regularly speak to each other as a management team and know each other well, George managed to get us to go really deeper. Preparation was just as important as the meeting itself. George had thoroughly studied who we are and what drives us individually. He created a very effective program with seemingly simple methods. And that in a pleasant setting. We are still reaping the benefits of the insights we gained that day.
Some complex matters need time to be understood. Listening, questioning, feeling, rationalizing, analyzing, and taking out the unnecessary noise. Letting it boil down to the core essence.More about George
My name is George Begemann and I’m a top executive coach.
Once I had a dream: I wanted to become a doctor. I went through a lottery system three times. A dean I consulted recommended me to change my focus and go for Industrial Engineering & Management Sciences: “than you shall be working with people as well”. I followed that advice. I completed my Masters of Engineering Cum Laude. Ever since my life has been a sequence of exiting challenges, about which later more. Married twice, and three children. Up to the present day I still make dreams work.More about George
In this book, we will reveal what goes on in the minds of leaders. It is important to get to know how leaders think because they have a great impact on our organizations. Those organizations, in turn, leave their mark on society and thus on our lives. So, understanding what is going on inside leader's minds helps us tot make sense of the world in which we live.
Twelve authors have contributed an essay for this book to build on the legacy of the great minds that have previously considered and written about this subject. They draw from their personal experiences as tried and tested executives, non-executives, consultants and/or coaches to share their insights into the minds of leaders. I invite you to dive in and explore Inside the Leader's Mind. Enjoy!
