Profile

Karlien Vanderheyden obtained a master degree in Industrial and Organisational Psychology at Ghent University in 1990. She was Visiting Research Fellow at University of Maryland (1994-1995) and became Doctor in Psychology at Ghent University in 1998. She teaches people management in degree programmes as well as in customised programmes.

Her interest in managing people becomes also clear in her research, e.g. decision making and intuition, diversity in teams, individual differences and performance. Her book ’Essentials Communicatie’ is a nice illustration of how to combine theory and practice. Based on her experience and knowledge she coaches managers to optimise their performance in organisations.
