"GREAT VISION WITHOUT GREAT PEOPLE IS IRRELEVANT"
We help organisations create value through their people.
Anywhere on the globe. In any line of business.
We focus on delivering outstanding leaders for our clients, support them in creating lasting and successful teams in and for an ever changing and challenging environment, one that stimulates each individual to deliver unexpected, great results.
We ensure that our clients obtain maximum benefit from our knowledge, expertise and experience by offering strong interpersonal skills, talent and the delivery of positive results.
We are efficient. We are direct and straightforward, aimed at achieving our clients' goals. We work with great respect for our clients’ time and resources.
We are practical. We do not just give advice, we add value by initiating changes through focused processes aimed at creating the optimal mix of talents and skills so our clients' people together form a team, well positioned to meet their challenges.
We are critical. We will articulate our own point of view and opinion towards clients, we are not afraid to disagree and always strive to retain an independent position towards any party or point of view.
We use our network and connections to get things done, whether to identify people, add new points of view or to help our clients formulate and reach their goals.
Each client and each project is unique to us. Each project needs and deserves a tailor made approach, each project is owned by a single senior partner.

"I WANT TO CONVINCE YOU THAT THESE KINDS OF PERSONAL EXPLANATIONS OF SUCCES DON'T WORK.
PEOPLE DON'T RISE FROM NOTHING...
IT IS ONLY BY ASKING WHERE THEY ARE FROM THAT WE CAN UNRAVEL THE LOGIC BEHIND WHO SUCCEEDS AND WHO DOESN'T"

Outliers: The Story of Success
We help clients create an understanding of what they need in their leadership teams and why they need it. We challenge with un-thought points of view and approaches to questions. We search for the right candidates, based on a full assessment of the situation and the organisation. We look beyond the obvious. We personally support clients and candidates during the entire process, until the right decisions and agreements have been made.
We support clients in their discovery of the inherent value of their leadership team and the individual team members. We support the creation of a vision of the growth and development potential of the team relative to the organisation's vision and goals. And we support all involved in that development process.
Focused, transparent and respectful.
Individual leaders benefit from a mirror, a sincere and challenging independent partner to challange them in the development of their own capabilities, the formulation of their individual outlook and in attaining a well balanced understanding of their own effectiveness within their professional environment. All aimed at helping those leaders to deliver outstanding results. Aegeus is a MMS certified coach, he offers three coaching processes. Click on Read More about the three processes.
Succession and family businesses
We support and guide family-owned businesses in the process of understanding the core of leadership roles in an often emotional context with various interests involved. We help define the process of developing a vision for the future of its leadership, support each and every individual involved to create appropriate ownership of the vision and deliver tangible solutions for the foundation of a strong leadership future.
