The agency for new generation leaders..


As Charles Darwin (1809 - 1882) said: it's not the strongest species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one that's most responsive to change!

Vision and moral compass
A statement that is more relevant than ever. The rapidly evolving world requires decisive leaders with a long-term vision and sharply attuned moral compass. Leaders who look beyond quarterly reports and treat teams like ‘eco systems’. The global issues of today and tomorrow – from sustainability and ethics to technology and geopolitics – require agile organisations, and future-proof leadership and management.

Redesigning leadership
At Whyz, there is nothing we enjoy more than assisting our clients with these transformations. It is our mission to redesign leadership for the 21st century. We have the insights, the experience and the network to accelerate this transition to future-proof leadership. We do this by giving clients access to leaders who question the status quo and drive system change. Leaders who create the world of tomorrow by bridging the gap between vision and operations.

Enriching organisations and teams
Our binding and personal approach makes Whyz the premier purveyor of future-proof leaders and complementary teams. We know and place (un)usual suspects that enrich organisations and teams: visionaries with guts, a disruptive mindset and self-knowledge. This new generation represents a diverse and inclusive work culture – an environment in which people can be themselves, feel valued, and make a difference.

Our professional, experienced consultants don’t do drab or mediocre. It is this passion for our field and our clients in which we excel. Over and over again!

"We is more important than Why. It’s not about the change itself,
but about the people who work together and create that change."

Quote from book: "Wij is belangrijker dan Why" by Paul van Schaik, Alfred Schmits, Dennis Stout.


Our consultants distinguish themselves through their indepth knowledge and experience of the sectors in which Whyz operates. Not only do we offer access to the best people, we also know in which culture they come into their own optimally. That is why we devote a great deal of attention to finding the ultimate match between personality and our clients’ organisational culture.

In line with this, we have split the market into sectors, as well as four worlds, each with its own unique culture. The worlds our specialist teams serve are:
  • Corporate
  • (Semi-)Public
  • Private Equity & Venture Capital
  • Family-owned businesses
  • We understand the differences and the similarities between these worlds and know when someone is a fit for a specific culture. Because our consultants know what opportunities and challenges the future offers, we also indicate when the time is right for making the move to another world.

    “Whether someone is a fit for a specific sector is determined primarily by knowledge, qualifications and experience.
    Whether someone is a fit for one of the four worlds is determined primarily by personality and character.”

    We are convinced that diversity in teams – in terms of gender, age, cultural background and orientation, for example – contributes to the success of the organisation. However, this only succeeds in an inclusive corporate culture with shared underlying values and standards. We regard the prioritisation of diversity and inclusivity at all layers of the organisation as an important condition for future-proof leadership.

    “Diversity is being invited to the party, inclusion is being asked to dance.”
