Julie Johnson, MIM, specializes in leadership development, team effectiveness, and executive coaching. Since founding her own consulting business in 1993, she has worked with a large number of multicultural teams and groups of top- and mid-level managers on key leadership challenges, and coached hundreds of individuals from throughout the world.
At ABN AMRO she has been selected to join the team of executive coaches who work with their top 150 executives (worldwide), and to coach a number of high potential managers on their development as leaders. She also facilitates senior management teams in the area of feedback, creating a more open and constructive team culture. Julie is an adjunct staff member for the Center for Creative Leadership in Brussels. She works frequently with Enspiro (Swedish Institute of Management), the leading provider of management education in Scandinavia. For the past 13 years she has taught leadership and marketing in the MBA and executive MBA programs at the Rotterdam School of Management. In the early 1990s she was selected by Arthur Andersen and Accenture to join their international core team of adjunct facilitators.
Julie has lived and worked in five countries (France, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, and the United States). Since 1990 she has lived in the Netherlands with her Dutch husband and two children. She has worked in all Western European countries (except Portugal), as well as Hungary, India, Hong Kong, South Africa, and Czechoslovakia (as it was called at the time). She works in English and Dutch and also speaks French, Norwegian, and conversational Spanish.
Julie is certified in a large number of psychometric instruments, and uses these tools frequently in her work. In addition to her leadership experience and training, she has degrees and work experience in both Mathematics and International Marketing Management. She believes that both her analytical and business backgrounds contribute significantly to supporting her clients’ needs.
