something new arises from the silence

Elsbeth Ophoff (1966) has worked in corporate business for 20 years. In 2009 she founded her own company Nieuwlaagje . Elsbeth works for various international (coaching) organisations and has more than 10,000 coaching hours in international business to her name. Elsbeth is not only a coach/facilitator, but also a yoga teacher and a professional house painter.

During her own reflection trip in Vietnam (2019), Elsbeth decided to bring Reflectiontime to a wider audience. Reflectiontime offers companies an accessible and powerful way of reflecting. On the 'self' and on the system we belong to

Far too few people regularly reflect. Life constantly demands that we go faster and do more. Most people I coach find it hard to schedule a day off to reflect. They feel truant. They do not see it as part of their personal leadership. But that changes the moment they start working with us!”, says Elsbeth. 

Reflection time', Elsbeth sees as the most important part of a healthy career and a healthy life. Take a step back to see where you stand now. How do you feel? What are you proud of? What do you want to do differently from tomorrow? Reflection in silence in order to let the inner wisdom speak. Only by learning to embrace the silence, the step back, not being identified with your mind talking to you... something new arises. Become your own observer.
