Doug Maarschalk

Doug Maarschalk,


Doug Maarschalk is a trainer and consultant for SoftEd. Doug's area of expertise lies in working with teams to make meaningful progress and find better ways of working together. 

Doug uses the principles of intrinsic motivation (relatedness, competence and autonomy) as the basis for his work. In a rapidly changing world of complex and knowledge-based work, he believes the integration of these principles in the way we run our organisations is the key to adaptability, innovation and success.

Through workshop facilitation, one on one coaching, group presentations and consulting, he provides a way for teams to move forward.
