Green Solar Roof office Breda

In October 2017, we have completed a green solar roof for our Breda office. As a result, water storage improved, renewable energy further increased and we achieved better isolation for our office. This project was done with some help from the city of Breda in The Netherlands.

Participant of the November 2017 training
"Extremely inspirational day, where useful models came together with pragmatic applications and real life experiences!"

Mid November 2017 we organized our fist open tèn company academy session in Antwerp. During this highly interactive day, we worked with a group of managers coming from a variety of companies. We worked with them on their personal effectiveness as managers, how to assess and build their teams and we shared with them some of our experiences to change a company and put strategies into real execution.

We will continue in 2018 with our these trainings. Next open trainings for 2018 will be on 27 February (Delivery in English, 9 open spots) and on 24 April (Delivery language to be decided, 12 open spots). Location: Benelux.

If you want some more information, please follow this link. If you want to participate, or you want to send one of your managers. Please send us an email via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or speak with your consultant.

People from our current clients have priority in the application.

I​KIGAI Kaart Spel

  • ​Zoek je een hulpmiddel om mensen te helpen betere loopbaankeuzes te maken?
  • Of wil je zelf (weer) richting geven aan je loopbaan?
  • Ben je op zoek naar een vragenspel dat praktisch, leuk èn inspirerend is?

​ IKIGAI kaart spel is helemaal ontworpen om je hierbij te helpen!

Je IKIGAI is je reden van bestaan. Deze uitdrukking komt van het Japanse eiland Okinawa. Je IKIGAI is een mix van waar je van houdt, waar je goed in bent en waar je van kunt leven. Iedereen op dit eiland kent zijn of haar unieke IKIGAI. Zou het toeval zijn dat dit ook het eiland is waar mensen gemiddeld het oudste worden op aarde?

IKIGAI Kaartspel is gestructureerd in drie delen. Elk deel bevat een serie kaarten met uitdagende vragen.

Deel 1: You love it (je houdt ervan)
Deel 2: You're good at it (je bent er goed in)
Deel 3: Reality check (toets aan de realiteit)

Het spel is zowel in het Nederlands als in het Engels te spelen. IKIGAI Kaartspel kun je spelen met twee mensen, in een kleine groep of je kunt het zelf spelen.

Hieronder kun je de introductie bekijken van IKIGAI Kaart Spel. De trailer is in het Engels en duurt ongeveer 1,5 minuut. Het spel zelf bevat zowel de Nederlandse als de Engelse teksten.

IKIGAI wordt gespeeld en gewaardeerd door coaches en consultants over de hele wereld.

Jan Timmer certified in MRG's Personal Directions

It's with pleasure that we can announce that our associate partner Jan Timmer now also successfully completed his certification in the use of MRG's Personal Directions. ​This brings the total group of four from our consultant team who are certified in using MRG's suite of executive assessments.

​With Personal Directions, we assist our clients to get a deep understanding of their drivers and the world they have created for themselves. What gives them energy and what drains their energy away? We also use it as a tool ​with our clients ​to ​help them ​build leadership teams.

While MRG's Personal Directions is a quite a extensive assessment, we believe this is what is needed to bring real added value to your company and to your life. Not ​just ​something nice to have.

Of course we know that here are many many other assessments available ​on the market. And we know that there are currently assessments popular that are putting people in boxes via colors. But to make an exercise like this really meaningful, you need to go further than that.

Also, we feel that there's a risk involved ​when people ​can too easily be made in to caricatures when everything is brought back to some simple colors. ​Life is not so simple, nor are people. ​​This approach is not helpful enough at the end of the day to run your business, select or develop ​your key ​people or to make life changing decisions for yourself.

More info about our ​assessment offerings can be found here.​

Congrats Jan!

Celebrating eight years!

​​It’s been 8 years now since we created tèn company. We started our firm in the middle of the financial crisis. Lehman Brothers just went bankrupt a couple of months earlier and there was a lot of uncertainty in the markets. But despite the strong economic headwind at the time, we were able to give our firm a healthy start. Of course this is thanks to you, our first clients, trusting us with your important business. We look forward to continue our work. We want to thank all our clients for your ongoing commitment to using our services. We feel grateful and humble for all your support throughout the years.

We're currently preparing a second book and we'll continue in 2017 with our bi-weekly columns: in writing, video columns and our vlogs. Our full resource hub can be found here.

Thank you and happy holidays

2016 was an extraordinary year for our firm. Only because you trusted us with more of your important work then ever before, we were able to accelerate our business. You've also used our free library with articles and free resources extensively.

Please rest assured that our approach remains to be fully personalized. Whether you ask us to work with your leadership team or you want a program for one of your business leaders. Or when you ask us to help you put your company strategy into execution. Every program is always fully customized to meet your unique needs.

For us, playing our role in society is simply the right thing to do. Also in 2016, we donated some of our time and we gave some financial support to a selection of charity organizations that we are committed to. Charity organizations that work global ( Red Cross for instance) or local ( in The Netherlands for instance).

For the international Committee of the Red Cross, we are now for the fourth consecutive year actively involved in their global leadership program through our alliance partner MRG (

From this place we wish you and your loved ones happy holidays.

Thank you for your commitment to our services and being a valued partner in our network.

On behalf of our team at tèn company.
