Simone van der Kallen

Simone, the principal consultant and founder of The Human App specialises in strengthening, developing and transforming the leadership potential of CEO’s, leadership teams and high performing professionals.
Simone is an expert at energising teams and working with them to give them the confidence to succeed. She provides the glue between a great strategic plan and the culture of the organisation that translates into action. She goes beyond providing processes and tools with practical and business applications to build capability. Her clients are left with a greater understanding of their leadership strengths, and the skills to empower teams and individuals to improve performance and business outcomes.

Simone draws on her experience from owning and building a multi million dollar national award winning business in the advertising industry, coupled with her passion for organisational development and individual growth. Her success was founded on her ability to join the dots between stakeholders, finding common ground to achieve desired results for all parties involved whilst being mindful of what is needed to produce results. This experience developed her interest in what people need to perform to the best of their ability, be supported, engaged and have a sense of being valued.

After the successful sale of her business in 1999, further study and experiences in different industries The Human App was launched in 2012. Simone is passionate about making a real difference to a client’s outcomes.

Simone knows that most CEO’s, leadership teams and high performing professionals are often technically brilliant but they may lack the skills to really get the best out of their people. They also find themselves reacting to current demands with no time to work on the long term strategic vision of the business. They tend to be so busy that they can barely acknowledge their own needs. We know that by continuing to rely on previous success patterns, becoming complacent and not innovating creativity there is no guarantee of future success and growth.

The Human App authentically connects leaders, teams and individuals to transform potential into performance and profit.
