Maurits is analytically strong and knows, due to his knowledge of and respect for individual differences, the trust that is needed to lead changes in the right direction quickly. His quality is to adapt the “hard” factors to changing circumstances, on the one hand, and to select and coach individual family members and external managers on the other hand: their success is also good for family, business, and society as a whole.
