About

Ambits reinforces managers in their leadership through Business Mentoring. To bring your people and business into balance.

Your people are struggling to implement a new strategy. Your implementation is out of control due to human bottlenecks. You attempt to solve it with training, coaching, and more consultancy. We’ve heard it time and time again.

Ambits offers a new service, centered on pragmatically guiding your people in their personal transition in becoming an effective leader.

Our vision

Helping to achieve your leadership ambitions

We reinforce managers in their leadership via guidance of business mentors with expertise and all the scars of learning to create an immediate and sustainable impact.

    Basic and fundamental beliefs that guide and motivate our attitudes and actions


    1. Self-awareness: the ability to see ourselves clearly and objectively through reflection and introspection


    2. Growth mindset: with a growth mindset we are convinced our skills and intelligence are improved with effort and persistence.
    We embrace challenges, push out of our comfort zone, persist through obstacles, learn from criticism, and seek out inspiration in others’ success


    3. Authenticity: we are true to our own’s personality, values, and character. We aspire to be sincere, honest, and reliable


    4. Humility: our behavior is grounded in a fundamental belief in equality and respect for others


    5. Servanthood: we focus primarily on the growth and well-being of other people and the communities to which they belong.
    We strive to put the needs of others first and to help other people to achieve their objectives
