With our Baseline we mean how high or low our energy level and how strong our resilience is. How high or low our Baseline is defines if we are able in a situation to keep our cool, keep our eye on the target and direct our energy associated with OE towards our own chosen goals and applying the PowerWood DIY Kit or if the emotions run wild and/or the situation escalates and we loose control and have further negative experiences. This means clearing the runway of all unnecessary stressors or irritations is of real importance to have a high Baseline.
Our well-being is hugely influenced by both our Baseline and our access to what we call the PowerWood DIY kit.
The PowerWood DIY Kit is information, practical tools and strategies to apply during an incident in the moment to prevent escalation, calm yourself and others and help strengthening the Baseline.
Thank you for fantastic workshops the weekend before last, and for all the downloads which have followed. Thank you for creating such an empowering, inspiring place for us all! At first, I thanked you for all the information you gave us, but when I thought some more I wondered what I’d said, because while I’ve been trying to understand my children (and myself) I can feel like I’m drowning in information – or would be if I created enough time to read all the books I bought! However, in your workshops every drop of information counted and was made to justify its relevance to looking after our over-excitable children, and so ourselves. Thank you for the immense effort you have made in collating a huge body of theories and knowledge and crafting it into workshops which were so alive and humane and intelligent. Thank you too for all you shared about yourself and your family as it made me much more able to absorb the ideas you were sharing – I felt how you had lived them and crafted them into your own perceptions and solutions, and how we must all do this to find our way through parenting our own kids.
I very much look forward to being part of the forum – I think its really great we have that. I will now feel more able to carry a sunny space in my hometown, and all the support it offered, with me!
“It is a delight to have the opportunity to write a genuine unsolicited testimonial for Simone de Hoogh. Simone turned up in my life just as my business and I needed her; her help and advice have been transformative.
Simone has a a range of skills which together with her experience in business create a powerful combination. She has an incisive intelligence which cuts trough the confusion that can surround poor business habits. Her direct approach is as refreshing as it can sometimes be painful. In my case seh was able to cut away the old wood to reveal the essential creative heart of the business and the opportunity for new growth that had become overshadowed. Her sensitivity meant that she was able to read personalities quickly and identify where boundaries needed to be drawn and distinctions made. Although not a business psychologist her holistic view and wide reading enables her to function comfortably with personal issues, business related matters and opportunities for creativity overlap or hamper each other.
Throughout the period we worked together Simone maintained a very clear strategic overview that she never let be clouded. Having said that, she remained flexible enough to revise and amend strategy as circumstances changed. She had an excellent technique of identifying the critical tasks that needed to be done, setting goals and prioritising the sequence of delivery.
In conclusion, Simone has a great generosity of spirit. She has a deep understanding of life’s patterns and structures from the pragmatic to the intuitive. Her clarity of vision and directness, tempered by her caring and professional attitude enable her to deal with the essential and important dimension of business. I have no hesitation in recommending her to you.”
