From early 2012 Organic Coach Accreditation became possible in South Africa through the establishment of Transmind South Africa (Pty) Ltd with Dr. Nico en Elsa Simpson as the directors.
TransMind works on the conscious development of people and organizations. We use the Organic System Theory and the Organic ScoreCard©, both based on the natural development of all living systems.
TransMind International has an office in Kerk-Avezaath, the Netherlands. It is located in a beautiful restored, registered historical monument that was originally an elementary school built in 1841.
Marc Grond is the developer of the Organic System Theory and the Organic ScoreCard© which are based on 20 years of transition management experience among heavily battered businesses. With his warm and open approach, Marc is like no one else capable of guiding people through a process of self-discovery and development. In 2009, Marc entered a Ph.D. program in which he is researching organic business management. He is author of “The Organization Burnout.”
Jandirk Pronk has worked since 2006 with the Organic ScoreCard©. He is a social psychologist and management consultant. His main area of work lies in moments of “tension between people.” After educating dropout students in Amsterdam, training and advising Amsterdam churches, consulting in the patient/consumer movement, and serving as a senior adviser at STOEL Advice, he now works as an independent consultant. He experiences the Organic ScoreCard as a superb tool for self-awareness, goal-orientedness, and cooperation for both individuals and teams.
