Jitske Zengerink

Learning and Development Manager at Rituals

Jitske Zengerink

Learning and Development Manager at Rituals

Jitske is a passionate Organizational Psychologist with over 18 years of experience in the field of HRD, Assessment & Development and coaching of higher educated (young) professionals and managers, and has accreditations in mindfulness, vitality and coaching.  After a youth characterized by top sport (swimming), she realized that high performance and happiness do not always go together. Her curiosity and persistence to understand how this works became one of her main drivers. Asking the questions most people do not ask and combining different sources of knowledge is her approach to gain understanding of this topic.

Supporting people and organizations to stay true to themselves and thereby optimizing both happiness and performance has been her passion ever since. During her management traineeship and career at Ahold she learned the corporate side of her work field. In her years working as a  consultant at FunktieMediair and later for her own practice, she was able to go deeper into the question what makes people flourish. Because she loves to share her insights, she often contributed  to psychological articles in popular lifestyle magazines. Since February 2016 she works for Rituals in the new role of Global Learning & Development Manager. All her experiences and knowledge come together there and she uses them to create a sustainable and firm fundament for people development with tools aligned with the values of the company.
