Over the past number of years Development Dialogue has worked with executives from across the world over a range of industries – achieving great results that are felt both on a personal level and on a wider scale by the companies they manage and lead.

Here are just a few of them:


Naarmate de tijd voort schrijdt, zie ik steeds meer diepgang in de analyse -achievement,  empathy, leadership.
Ik kan nu (terugkijkend op) mijn carrière verloop beter plaatsen, en mijn hoogte- en dieptepunten een plek geven,en wellicht ook mensen die mijn pad hebben gekruist (en zullen kruizen) beter begrijpen.

Henk, bedankt voor dit zeer waardevolle inzicht!

Lily Jong – CEO van PVG Holding BV

There are people that cross your path, your life path and that change it for forever: for the good, for the better, for the greater…

I had the privilege to meet such a unique person as Henk six years ago. I still remember one of his first sentences: “if you are open for this motives journey, it could be life changing…” And it was… and it still is. Unique in its kind, refreshing, challenging, inspirational; words can hardly express the magnitude of this journey. I would recommend it to everyone who is open and willing to understand who they truly are. I dare to say: I finally do!

Ann-Françoise Versele – Global Head of Sustainability at Bekaert

I would highly recommend Development Dialogue and Henk Breukink. The program offers an innovative and powerful perspective on you as a person. Combined with the in-depth conversations it really supports you in your journey to increase awareness and make impact; both as a person as well as in your interactions.

Yoram Schwarz – CEO at Movir

It has been a pleasure to gain insight into my Primary Social Motives. The training program, offered by Development Dialogue, strengthened & fine-tuned our leadership skills, & also reinforced the cooperation with my colleagues. I can recommend this if you wish to boost your professional skills to generate growth, for yourself and your team.

Hajir Hajji – Commercial Director at Action.

Working with Development Dialogue has deepened my self-awareness and has offered me some deceptively simple tools and insights to change deeply engrained behavioural patterns to my benefit and that of my company.

Twan van der Kerkhof – Director of The European Leadership Platform

When I was first introduced to Dr George New, Omega, I had been told that working with him could be life changing experience. One is usually sceptical about such a strong recommendation but I can say that having worked with George, Louise and more recently Henk over many years, it has proved to be the case.

From understanding my own profile in the frame of primary social motives, the importance of matching profiles with roles in business to learning to read the motive profiles of people with whom you interact both in business and personal life it has been an invaluable experience which I would highly recommend to anyone who is searching for fulfilment in their careers and personal life.

Nick Loup – Group Vice Chairman, CEO at Chelsfield Asia (former CEO Grosvenor Asia Pacific)

The method, analysis and support that Development Dialogue offers is the best I have ever seen in my career and has helped me make crucial decisions about my leadership teams. For the most important people appointments I can wholeheartedly recommend Henk Breukink to anyone who wants to learn from a very wise man.

Tex Gunning – CEO of LeasePlan Corporation (former CEO TNT Express)

Learning to understand and manage my Primary Social Motives (and those of others) has been one of the most powerful development experiences of my professional life. I can recommend this evidence-based methodology to anyone wishing to increase personal and professional effectiveness.

Pauline van der Meer Mohr – Non-Executive Director of HSBC Holdings plc

The program works on the deep side of the brain in combination with cognitive learning, which enables me to understand myself and others better. Having worked with the long-term development programme for more than 7 years, both my wife and my colleagues provided very positive feedbacks on improvements on my communication and management style. You must believe in the program and devote yourself during the process, and it will help you to open doors to new perspectives.

Yang Yu – Partner & CIO at Chelsfield Asia (former Managing Director Grosvenor Asia Pacific)

With the help of a few deceptively simple concepts I learned to understand what type of achievements are really important to me and which less. This insight has greatly helped me in deciding what path to take.

Annet Aris – Adjunct Professor at INSTEAD and Supervisory Board Member

If one is open for this, it is an enrichment and learning for life. I understand much better what motivates me, what my strengths and weaknesses are. It also enables to understand the same of others.

Ton Geurts – former SVP/CPO Bekaert NV

Do you lead a team? Would it benefit you to better understand them, and for them to better know themselves?
