He serves as an expert lecturer at various leading business schools, including the Wharton Business School (USA), Thunderbird School of Global Management (USA), Nyenrode Business University (The Netherlands), and Sabanci Business University (Turkey).

As a behavioral strategist, he speaks, teaches and consults on executive subjects such as visionary leadership, influence, strategic decision-making and innovation. He is primarily interested in the interaction between strategic subjects and the human, psychological factors at play in the strategy process.

A solid understanding of these aspects and the way they interact is therefore key to successful leadership.

In his speaking, writing and teaching work, Rob-Jan draws on these various disciplines to arrive at new and insightful perspectives on successful leadership.
