Design Your Future

Make this the first day of the rest of your life.

Are you happy? 

Why are you doing what you do? What inspires you? 

What next?

Once every so many years you arrive on a crossroad in your life. What should be your next step? Do I want to stay in my current job? Do I want to try another discipline, go work for another company or start my own? How do I want to maintain and improve my health? What about my relationships with beloved ones and friends? Why is this important to me?

Design your future. 

This program has the ambition to help you find out how to get the most out of your life. Discover your dreams, translate them into a vision, set priorities and clear goals for the years to come. Create a Better Balance in Life.


As one year passed after Designing my Future, everything that happened there inspired me to follow my dreams.

Why anyone else should do this too?

In life, you come to Earth to learn and grow. Learn by doing. Make mistakes and learn. Learn to deal flexibly with everyone and remain yourself. Here to pursue your dreams. How ofter do you ask yourself the question: "What next?". Find the answers you need. Join me and
 "Design you future"

Beautiful insights! Thanks George.

About the Program..

The program for this training is built along two lines. 

The long term line is the U-curve, as researched and published by Joseph Jaworski, Peter Senge and Otto Sharmer. 

The short term cycles are aligned along the I, We, Them circles as developed by George Begemann.

The training consists of three blocks:

  • Learn from your past
  • Appreciate the gifts of the present
  • Dream about your future

The last block is designing your future with the help of tools and prioritisation. Action and implementation can be monitored on a regular basis. Read more about the content of these three blocks in the next section.

The outcome: Better Balance in Life



Participants are senior Executives or Entrepreneurs. They deal with complex matters. In their daily routine they are expected to respond to all issues in line with the Corporate Vision. They are expected to be pro-active.

It requires a click, to work.

As a Sparring Partner, I help you with the running of your business and your life. If you are seriously interested and want to know more, come for a walk, talk, and get to know each other. As 'Design Your Future' is an intensive and personal process, a mutual commitment is essential. The acceptance exists in three stages:

  1. Sharing your details and challenges
  2. Going for a walk and get acquainted
  3. Team selection

If the test outcome is positive, we start with an intake to get your goals clear.
These initial three steps are invoiced to you. If there is a match, the amount is discounted from your final invoice.

"I want coaching from George"

What next?

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 leaders' minds helps us make sense of the world we live in.
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!


I want to get to know George
