Every individual, team, and organization harbors unique talents, carrying the potential to enact transformative change. However, often these talents are hindered by unconscious patterns of fear and inefficiency, leading us to operate beneath our full capabilities. My years of experience working with diverse markets has highlighted how these subtle, yet deeply entrenched fear patterns can obstruct the pathway to success. These patterns, mostly unrecognized and unseen, have a profound impact, causing us to avoid challenges in pursuit of temporary solace. Yet, this evasion ultimately leads to dissatisfaction and stagnation. Conversely, identifying, confronting, and overcoming these patterns is a crucial part of the "Shift to Courage" and can fuel a powerful sense of purpose, satisfaction, and vitality.
The journey towards unlocking your true potential, while revealing and addressing these fear-induced patterns, can be daunting, but it opens up a future abundant with opportunities. It involves overcoming these hidden confines of fear, building new, constructive habits and taking bold steps towards a promising future. Regardless of being a manager, executive, shareholder, professional, IT engineer, or an educated adult, the "Shift to Courage" coaching approach, backed by practical tools, is designed to help dismantle these unconscious fear patterns, instill courage, and boost your capacity to harness your talents fully. My mission is to assist you in making this transformative shift, enabling you to make a meaningful, lasting impact. - Harry de Bont

"Take a journey through dreamland with Harry.
We had a fantastic day with the company.
In which the state of science about dreams is explained from all kinds of angles.
Even better was the interactivity. Explain each other's dreams together.
And go home with a concrete AI-generated image of your dream.
Then I almost forget a wonderful meditation in which you almost fall into sleep mode.
And everyone thought it was special, from director to developer, from software tester to agile coach.
Harry knows a lot about the subject and knows how to convey this in an inspiring way."
"An inspiring and insightful workshop about the wonderful world of dreams.
As a dream expert, Harry enthusiastically takes you through the theoretical framework and then into practice.
The group discussion in which we discussed our dreams and interpreted them together made a particular impression on me.
Visualizing my own dream using AI was also fun and original.
Adelle King, CEO and Founder of Events Medway
"Having the session with Harry was really insightful, I was put at ease and was guided through the theory of the tests. The tests were very accurate and has helped shape the areas I need to work on to continue my personal development."
Etho Brunst, Automation Artist
"How to be true to oneself when shaped by life. Family, friends, and colleagues are all part of who you are.
The rest I was able to fill in with Harry. For the first time, I stopped to consider the meaning of my life. Living without a clock, enjoying my time. ❤"

"I enjoyed the 'My Values My Choices' workshop and liked how structured it was.
By the end, we were able to be closer to ourselves and our values and understand what motivates us and leads our decision-making process.
Very great, and I highly recommend it.
Thanks very much, Harry, for your preparation for this workshop and time."
Fabienne van de Graaf, Web Designer
“When I asked Harry for coaching six months ago, I didn't expect it to help me so much.
I had been stuck in my work as a freelancer for a long time. Was afraid of assignments and suffered from fear of failure.
The coaching conversations with Harry over the past few months always gave me insights I could use to move forward. We also did a family constellation session which has benefited me a lot.
Harry is empathetic and decisive, and I felt seen and heard by him during our conversations.”
“The webinar was deeply informative, well structured and pleasantly carried out by Harry.
He is incredibly knowledgeable on the matter and can explain complex concepts in an intellegibile and entertaining way.
It was particularly helpful for me to receive this workshop because, as I am currently facing various challenges in my life,
this provided me with the ability to regain trust and makes me feel empowered to rewire my brain.”
“Harry de Bont manages to explain the complicated topic of neuroplasticity in very pleasant and understandable terms.
This webinar was extremely interesting and very applicable to everyday life.
I recommend this for anyone looking to improve themselves,
learn how to learn better, and get a basic understanding of how neuroplasticity works.”
Nadiia Matskevych, Business Treasury at AkzoNobel
“Many thanks for the great workshop 'Hacking Neuroplasticity'!
I felt so re-energised after the training that I managed to run a successful call and close all outstanding items before the weekend :)
Looking forward to receiving the slides and reading recommendations.”
Anonymous, Software Developer
“I want to say that Harry’s help in these last six months has served me well.
As I told him, this was the first time I felt counselling worked. Before counselling with Harry,
I felt stuck in my life. Getting into this state, where I could start exploring things again,
was possible because Harry allowed me to talk and let go of many thoughts and questions about my life.
The fact that we could talk about life as a whole was helpful (very different from the therapy I was doing before).
What significantly helped was how we could talk about differences in people and how I can also be different from other (most) people.
I am no longer stuck with my life and am ready to give space to new experiences.”
Mayur Yadav, Head Of Data Management at Oxitec Ltd
"What made me attend Harry's webinar in the first instance was the focus on finding your freedom.
His logical and data driven approach appealed to me immediately. The emphasis on growth mindset,
paying close attention to internal patterns combined with diving into dreams to find out what really brings you joy
creates a unique method which I have found immensely helpful. He is always researching new frameworks to improve
existing processes- I like this approach as it helps you grow, experiment with new mechanisms that work for you
and helps you know more about yourself."
Bas Evers, Business Innovation Consultant at MERLINQ
“The most important thing Harry has given me is awareness. Awareness of evolutionary
forces influencing my daily life. Awareness of perceptions of myself and of reality.
Awareness of the power of wording and visualization techniques. Awareness of my dreams -
literally and figuratively. Awareness risen, Harry has provided me with practical and
actionable insights to change my life for the better. Looking back, I have experienced a
partnership. It has been an emotional and positive process. Harry has a very broad
theoretical background and practical knowledge, he was able to tune his coaching to my
needs, and I could confide in him. I would highly recommend Harry to anyone who is looking
to pursue their talents - in career and private life.”
Joost Le Loux, director of Expro
"MonadCompany has assisted Expro in a change process. The objective was to grow as a management team and to improve the business results.
The change had three phases: First individually, then as a team and finally we started working on strategy.
Looking back, we started to recognise and use our talents in this adventure, we cooperate more and difficult issues are more open to discussion than before.
Now our team and company has more focus on the results.
Compared to previous years, our profits have risen by more than 30%."
