Who We Are and What We Stand For

Our name Morpheos comes from the Greek Gods Morpheus – God of Dreams – and Eos – Goddess of the Dawn. Morpheos stands for the awakening of human consciousness: “from dream to dawn”. If we morph our dreams into the dawn and wake up from a dreamlike state by making a shift in our consciousness, we unfold a new perception of reality.

 

Morpheos stands for the awakening of human consciousness: “from dream to dawn”.

 

In Greek mythology Morpheus is a God of Dreams who appears in Ovid’s Metamorphoses. Morpheus has the ability to mimic any human form and to appear in dreams. His true semblance is that of a winged daemon, an imagery shared with many of his siblings.

 

Eos, “dawn”, is the Goddess of the Dawn, who rose each morning from her home at the edge of the Oceanus. Eos had a brother and a sister, Helios, God of the Sun, and Selene, Goddess of the Moon.

I have dedicated my life to people becoming aware of and connecting with their true self. To increase fulfillment in their own working lives and to create meaningful, passionate work environments based on their shared values and inspiring purposes.

 

The human mind and how we create meaning in this world have always intrigued me. Besides inspiration and intrinsic motivation are guiding principles for me. Intangible as it might be, I have experienced and learned that these qualities are of vital importance for people to be engaged in their work, teams and organizations. In the worlds of the arts, sciences and sports many people are initially driven by the love for what they do, just for the sake of doing it. I have explored all three fields intensively, not by accident.

 

The study of Arts & Culture Sciences and Economics taught me that culture matters in economic settings. After my studies in 1998 I started as a strategic consultant with an advertising agency to learn how human creativity and imagination are used in the commercial world to attract, inspire and seduce people’s minds. Besides I worked on a scientific research how to measure and manage the inspiring and engaging dimensions of corporate cultures. In 2002 I made the scientific endeavor part of my own business and moved on as an independent scientific researcher and consultant. Supported by my professor and McKinsey, in knowledge and experience, I worked for companies and organizations, helping them to make a shift from a current to a desired culture.

 

Dialogue, storytelling and shifting human mindsets and behaviors became an integral part of my work. Together with a group of facilitators at McKinsey and later on Aberkyn, I have worked for several years as a facilitator and coach for leadership teams around the world. Throughout the years I have been trained and educated by leading teachers and practitioners in the field of leadership, team and organizational transformation and human consciousness.

 

My current focus is on conscious leadership for a new world. By helping people, teams and organizations to grow in consciousness, transforming their working lives and environments. And overall by remembering who we truly are as human beings, connected to a source of unlimited powers and possibilities. I have rediscovered road cycling as my ultimate way of releasing and recharging energy, being on the road while enjoying nature in stillness.

I have dedicated my life to people finding their inner drives and higher potential. Going beyond external pressures, people can create lives and organizations that are meaningful to themselves, the people around them and to the world at large. And experience magical performance levels, which is fun and awe-inspiring.

 

Crossing the Atlantic in a sailboat at 18 and going down the Amazon river with local boats I had strong experiences of happiness and tranquility and of sensing my own inner drive. The study of Economics gave me inside into the power and increasing limitations of the thinking that has such a dominant influence in our world. After my studies I worked with Shell and Digital Equipment in Strategy and Marketing to learn about life inside international corporations and I discovered the fields of organizational learning and systems thinking. During this time competitive sailing in yachts and dinghies became a passion for life.

 

In 1992 I began to work as an organizational consultant, with Boer & Croon, McKinsey & Company, and as of 2002 independently. All over the world I have worked with leading thinkers, teachers and practitioners in leadership-, team- and organizational transformation going beyond the rational domain. Joseph Jaworski and Gita Bellin standing out among them. I sharpened my vision of organizations of the future. Silence, dialogue and nature came to be powerful ingredients in my work. As a co-founder of the Foundation for Natural Leadership I went on to shape its mission and programs and lead leadership trails in Africa and later on in Scotland. Chief Quaw has awarded me the honor to use the term “Vision Quest” in my work after a life shifting quest in 2010 in the Canadian Wilderness.

 

After a multiyear retreat from client work and travelling, my current focus is on leadership for a new world and the shift from money to meaning. I coach leaders, teams, facilitators and young entrepreneurs, who are looking to contribute and are keen to foster their heart and soul in a performance-oriented environment. Increasingly, sportfishing on big waters in a physically active manner has become a passion and vital source of health and connection to stillness.
