Britta van Dyk

Working with Wentworth since: February 2015.

Background and experience: A chartered organisational psychologist for 14 years, specialising in leadership development and team effectiveness across multiple industries, cultures and leadership levels. In recent years I’ve also become immersed in sustainability projects, consulting and participating at board level for 2 not-for-profit organisations.

Facilitation style: Fully present; explorative and receptive; curious and open; intuitive and knowledgeable; accepting and supportive; courageous and honest. Co-creative, which means clients and their organisations continue to learn and evolve long after my work with them is done. As a facilitator I’m alert and agile and work with what’s happening in the moment whilst enabling participants to stay focused and achieve their objectives.

Main areas of expertise: People! ..I’m a psychologist. To break it down: Designing, managing and facilitating leadership and team development initiatives; coaching for business, career, performance and personal development; designing and delivering workshops on professional, interpersonal and coaching skills; leading and engaging diverse groups in strategic planning and problem solving; chairing and facilitating board and executive leadership team meetings.

Passionate about: All that sustains us. Continuous learning and improvement. Evolution. Travel; yoga; horse-riding; snorkelling; cooking and entertaining; writing poetry; immersing myself in nature; the richness of life!

Most enjoyable work project and why: Creating a Purpose, Flow and Leadership Retreat with two amazing women, and facilitating this for three very different groups of people. I can joyfully report we have invigorated the lives of 60 people in the first half of 2016 alone.

Qualifications: Chartered Organisational Psychologist, MSc in Occupational Psychology, Postgraduate Certificate in Executive Coaching, Certificate in Advanced Facilitation Skills, Qualified Myers Briggs Type Indicator trainer, Human Synergistics LSI and GPI 360 degree feedback tools.
