A Cloudless Mind

From Stress to Effortless

The Modern Leader

To foster peak performance and collaboration, leaders often turn to rules, reporting and rigid control. This approach invites more stress and overwhelm than success. The modern leader first liberates people from their mental sludge. From a calm place of trust, authentically creative and collaborative teams naturally arise.

We assist companies to create their own leadership model and trainings. For this we use the latest neuroscience insights to optimally create, change and collaborate.


Our coaching is for leaders who are passionate and intrinsically motivated to explore their true nature. By liberating yourself from mental sludge, a world of possibilities arises. Once you have a calm mind, you can lead by example and help others attain the same unburdened state of mind. This increases creativity, trust, authenticy – and ultimately – performance.


We help companies in their processes of change and aid the transition from stressed to effortless. First, we focus on taking away the mental sludge, saving a tremendous amount of energy and effort. After that, we provide companies with the latest neuroscience insights to enable change, innovation and cooperation.
