On any Lifetree program, you can choose to work either with Joe Lafferty (based in the UK) or Dr Madelon Evers (based in Switzerland). For larger group off-sites, Joe and Madelon work closely together to ensure quality support for your leaders and to guarantee a much broader range of outcomes from the work.

Madelon and Joe enjoy a solid reputation as trusted sparring partners to top level decision-makers in global organisations. Because we have ‘been there and done that’; we know your business challenges first-hand. As senior consultants, we draw on 20+ years leading change in international settings, and 10+ years as certified coaching professionals. 

We speak multiple languages, coach on locations across Europe and serve clients worldwide by offering virtual coaching and setting up dedicated off-sites at a location that suits you.

Working exclusively with senior leaders, we build on your strengths and potential to sustain top level responsibility.
