Bartholomeus Nicolaas Engelbertus: Author, Change Ninja, Antifragilist: Never pay for complexity when all you need is results.
Dutch Leadership coach Bartholomeus N.E. graduated from the Haarlem Business School in the late nineties and initially embarked on a Business Consultancy career until a near-death surfing accident sparked his interest in the psychology of the self-perception. Driven by his understanding from that drowning experience he studied a broad range of personal development techniques. He became a Master NLP Practitioner specialising in the application of Clean Language in Neuro Linguistic Programming. In this specialised field, clients own their answers and learn how to make the most of their natural skills. He created an elegant, yet simple means to making you/your team do much better with (unexpected) change. He believes no system or business architecture copes with the pace of today’s change if the key people in the organisation are not capable of dealing with unexpected change.
Over the years, his work has taken him from Europe to Australia, Canada, Mexico, the United States, and Great Britain. His wide variety of clientele contributed to the constantly evolving processes of role dissociation techniques he calls the Natural Self System. In his free time, he is an avid surfer and second-Dan black belt Bujutsu martial artist.

My personal growth story starts at the time I nearly died. I was surfing the epic waves of Hawaii when I wiped out on a very large wave. I was held underwater by an onslaught of waves until sheer panic changed into surrendering to death. In the deep blue serenity, I was floating in bliss while I ‘watched’ my happy life moments slideshow, . . . then it went dark. Being in this state I was outside time and outside life. I was still ‘me,’ however, not like before. When I came back in my body I was floating on my board in the safety of the lagoon. Un-explainable as that is; it remains unimportant. However, experiencing being aware, conscious, and present, but not alive or in my body was a significant experience that made me wonder ‘who am I,’ really.
“Because discontentedness, stress, and limitation, emerges when we are doing things in a way that is out of sync with our natural self. We can all achieve great things if only we would allow ourselves to do it, . . . our way. . . “.
