"I met Ernst-Ariaan in Paris and ever since he is a great inspiration. He simplifies life and adds value in a natural way of reasoning. A spirit driven man and friend"

In 1996 I laid down the foundation of the GenuineThinking proces when writing my thesis in Ireland. During my Masters and work I discovered that all people are in search of their true identity and purpose (but they do not want to admit this). When working for a large building and infra company I felt the urge of creating a new perspective. This led to the creation of the GenuineThinking circle in 2008. I used Biblical wisdom, corporate experience, consultancy, psychology and the feedback of professionals when teaching in higher education in the Netherlands.
The results were astonishing to me when I saw organisations and people make different choices because of gained insight in who they were. Not only gaining insight in who they were but also the perspectives towards others. The results were incredible i.e. becoming a true focussed organisation, people who changed their jobs, a natural increase in intrinsic motivation even when their was a higher work load to a school gaining 700% more pupils within 4 years.
