About Wendy Riksen

I am to-the-point, pragmatic, reliable, and have guts.

If I had had more self-knowledge and insight into my behavioral patterns as a supervisor 20 years ago, then my career path would have been very different. Sometimes, I didn’t feel heard or appreciated, and I started working even harder to achieve this. At the same time, I would grumble about my frustration. If I still didn’t get a response, I would just leave. Bye! If I had known then what I know now, how I could have been more effective and efficient, and also how I should have tackled difficult conversations, I would have had fewer conflicts and stress and more joy in my work. My parents taught me that if you want to accomplish something, you have to work hard for it. My ambition has always driven me and helped me along with the necessary educational bumps in the road. I like some dynamics and change.

I want to share the knowledge with others who are also stuck at work or have trouble with constructive and open communication in which both parties feel equal. With attention to your own needs and those of another. The challenges and difficulties that I experienced for years, I take with me in my current work as a Coach, Trainer, and Training actor.
By discovering patterns and gaining insight into the how and why you keep doing the same thing and the effect that has, I help you gain insight into the choice palet you have and how you can use that differently.
I love laughing together at the ‘weird’ habits we all have in the end, and then discovering how you can bend those in the best way without losing your true self.
I know how to create a relaxed atmosphere in which everyone feels safe to open up and tell his or her story.

I worked as a supervisor for years within TV production houses, Public Broadcasting, the restaurant business, hotels, and ICT.
