Ketting works with motivated professionals who approach their own development with an open mind and who are ready to step into the unknown. Ketting’s mentees expect a respectful, positive, practical, no-nonsense approach from their mentor. They are not afraid to open up and they understand that personal attitudes and life philosophies influence their professional lives. They understand that instead of seeking a “work-life balance” it is more important to achieve an overall “life-harmony”. Ketting’s mentees are senior managers and business owners.
