Studies show that a direct line manager plays a major role regarding the health and well-being of his or her reports. A health-oriented style of leadership can help to motivate employees and protect them from harmful stress and exhaustion.

About us

“Healthy Performance“ is not just a slogan. It’s our claim.

Janice Williamson

I have been personally engaged in the topics of “Healthy leadership. Healthy at work.” for a long time.  In my own experience in line management in a global organisation I asked myself what I could do to ensure my team enjoyed coming to work and did the best job they could? And just as importantly – what I could do to preserve and promote my own health? With this experience I went on to specialize in “healthy leadership” and joined one of the leading German providers in Corporate Health Care Management, advising companies, designing and delivering trainings. Today, I enjoy working freelance, designing and delivering trainings and presentations to organisations in many different sectors.
I grew up and studied in Scotland. The day after my graduation I moved to Bonn, where I have spent my adult life. To this day, I appreciate living at the heart of Europe. My private and business partnership with Edwin Lemke enriches me in both life settings. We both enjoy running, mountains and sea, our family and our common enthusiasm for our training profession.

The people in my trainings describe me as a dedicated trainer with passion, know-how and humour. I take great pleasure in encouraging people to discover their strengths and potential, to develop useful options and strategies. I believe in our capacity to learn new ways of thinking, and our freedom to decide at any time to make changes and do things differently and better in the future than we have done in the past.

Edwin Lemke

Training requires constant mental presence. It demands alertness and a permanent awareness of what’s happening in the group. I relax between these phases of intense concentration with sport. In fact, I would even describe myself as sports fanatic, having actively participated in many different types of sports. And enjoyed watching others. When I travel abroad, I always take my running shoes with me. For there might happen to be a running event where I’m going. As a passionate runner, I seize every opportunity to take part – be it a run by the sea, in a local park or up a mountain.

My second passion lies in fostering a culture of appreciation, attentiveness and respect between people. When training, I step back and set my antennae to receive. For me it is important to know what excites my participants, what they need right now and how I can best reach them. For to my mind, adult learning entails 15% trainer, and 85% participant activity. And empathy is an indispensable trait for a trainer.

In international settings, this is even more crucial. You can never read up on all of the cultural characteristics of a host country – sometimes you have to rely on your sensitivity and intuition. My third focus topic completes the circle: Understanding. To this end, I am fascinated by a journey of a special kind – the journey into the human mind.
