Who we work with.
For more than a decade we’ve worked with and alongside credible clients of all sizes. From start-ups to much larger corporate companies, we’ve helped strengthen and support individuals and departments with a shared vision and ambition to make changes for the better. Here’s what some of them said about Zumflow.
“The team still talks about these very special days.”
Kristina changed my life! I have just finished the Leadership Excellence Training @PVH, which has brought me so much both professionally and personally. The trainings have been very interesting and tailor made for the audience. Every time Kristina hosted the sessions with a lot of passion and energy.
The Circle of Trust off site which Kristina hosted for my international team of Chinese, Hong Kongese, Indian, Scottish and Dutch direct reports was impressive. Kristina was able to anticipate on last minute information about a company change which effected the team. She was able to change the mindset of the team when they arrived to the beautiful scenery of House James, from totally confused to having faith in future and trust within the team. The team still talks about these very special days.
BIG THANK YOU!

“The group sessions an atmosphere was created to be open, to safely be stretched out of our comfort zone and peel down to the root of problems we had as a group.”
Empowered, that is how we felt when Zumflow, Kristina, worked with us. We had several sessions. With our whole department and individually. In the group sessions an atmosphere was created to be open, to safely be stretched out of our comfort zone and peel down to the root of problems we had as a group. Our coaches proved to be firm in their critical view of what was necessary to handle but also had a good sense of ‘going with the flow’ when this was needed. In the individual management sessions we (manager and coordinator) felt so very welcome to be honest, about our department but also to each other. In this way we could ‘face our fears’ and deal with them. But! Also were invited to look upon our work in a such a fresh and positive way, that, after working with Zumflow, we stood, and still stand, in our own strength.

“Het heeft mij inzicht gegeven in mezelf,
de mensen om me heen en de interne processen die binnen de organisatie speelde.”
Als kinderpsychologe van huis uit en oprichtster van Stichting De Ster, had ik geen idee van leidinggeven en alle interne processen die daarbij komen kijken. Ik was begonnen met een leuk idee en opeens stond er een hele organisatie. Kristina heeft mij inzicht gegeven in mezelf, de mensen om me heen en de interne processen die binnen de organisatie speelde. Met een aantal handvatten liep alles veel soepeler en dat was fijn!
Dank je wel Kristina.

“The individual coaching assignments became part of our on boarding program.”
Our professional association with Kristina Zumpolle for team and individual coaching assignments is proving to be an integral part of performance enhancement on an individual and team level within our organization. It has also become part of our on boarding program for associates assigned to new functions.

“Kristina instinctively notices the direction I’m heading, sometimes before I do.”
Kristina’s remarkable intuition is her strength in coaching. She instinctively notices the direction I’m heading, sometimes before I do. I find her frank approach refreshing and inspiring. I highly recommend Kristina to clients who are ready to progress to the next level in their own lives.

“She ensures in a very positive way that agreed steps are taken.”
“Kristina has for me been a very inspiring coach with a lot of positive energy and a broad skill and tool set. She ensures in a very positive way that agreed steps are taken. Also she is very empatic: even in remote coaching sessions she is very good at sensing if I was e.g. stressed and she immediately adjusted her coaching”
Ard-Jan Moerdijk (Manager Innovation and improvements, Ericsson)
“Kristina is a born coach.”
Kristina is a born coach. Her innate abilities of guiding me towards deeper realizations within myself through her spot on intuition and courage of blurting out what’s lingering in my space but not said and acknowledged make her the honest challenging coach I need to get me into action mode.

“Kristina’s approach is open en self fulfilling.”
Kristina is a born listener and knows to put her finger on the right string in a complex story. With her questions she lets you find your own direction and something to think about for the next session. Her approach is open en self fulfilling. I highly recommend Kristina as a natural coach and will see her soon again.

“Thanks to their approach, my team opened up, talked with each other and picked up some very valuable tips.”
It is a challenge to manage over 20 young people on a new daily live TV show. The hardest thing with over four disciplines in one group, any group, is communication. Media professional are probably the most difficult people to work with during workshops, they have their own opinions, experiences and they will not take advice easily. Kristina and Willemien gave an interactive, intense and fun workshop on effective communication and cooperation. They listened carefully and were able, right away, to put their finger on the sore issues that came up by talking to the team. Thanks to their approach, my team opened up, talked with each other and picked up some very valuable tips. Simple, short and easy to work with and till on top of mind. I am happy with the tools we were handed and now as a team, we are in an on going process. I can recommend the experience and we are still using the tips today.

“Our goal to build a closer team was reached within several workshop days.”
I found working with Vera & Kristina very pleasant. Their own vulnerability was a good kickoff to open the teambuiling session we did with them. The group thereby felt the courage to share their backgrounds, thoughts and beliefs too. Vera & Kristina both are good listeners, they are kind and empathic without avoiding difficult subjects. Both have the analytical skills to quickly understand what an organization need. Our goal to build a closer team was reached within several workshopdays.
