"I would like to thank you for such a brilliant talk at our event. The talk was passionate, interesting and invaluable to what we are trying to achieve. Thank you it has been really compelling."

Michele Mees is a leading expert on developing inclusion and inclusive leadership.

Her concept of balanced leadership (published in The Balanced Leader) as key to creating sustainable inclusive corporate cultures is recognized globally.  

Creating an inclusive work environment that invites true diversity of thought demands not only an economic, but also a personal transformation. 

After publication of her book The Balanced Leader in 2011, she has been working continuously  with leaders around the globe. Her mission is to support leaders to create a balanced organizational culture by valuing, developing and using feminine and masculine qualities. Striking a balance between both inner poles is an essential element of personal development and growth. Balanced individuals build inclusive teams and company cultures.
