“People are stronger in their personal and professional lives when they are courageous and moving forward. That is why we emphasize training hard and soft skills for individuals, teams and organizations. We always take a personal approach and set very high standards for the quality of our work.” Jan Schouten, founder
Over 40 years ago, Schouten & Nelissen was founded based on the conviction that work is the most important area for people to continue to develop. And that in addition to factual knowledge, this also requires personal skills, namely hard and soft skills. To reinforce this idea – to make people stronger in their personal and professional lives – we continuously pioneer work in the field of professional development and personal growth. As the world and context of work change, this unique approach to people and organizations remains relevant.
Because of our people-oriented mentality, Schouten & Nelissen grew into a leading international training institute. Every year we help thousands of professionals and organizations in dozens of countries with coaching, training, courses and accredited bachelor's and master’s courses to make themselves and their organizations stronger: to go hard with head and heart.
As a family business, we cherish our entrepreneurial character and guarantee a personal and involved approach. At the same time, we as an organization remain curious and eager to learn. Seize opportunities as they arise and embrace change with enthusiasm. This is also why our services remain optimally in line with the working world, which is constantly increasing in complexity.
Within Schouten & Nelissen, nine different organizations each have their speciality: from coaching programs and soft skills training to in-company blended learning and development programmes. For example, we have all the expertise in-house to keep customers – whether it is individual professionals, teams or entire organizations – strong and moving, making them ready to adapt to any future.Organizations & Services
