RMD Training has a large network of unique locations and accommodations with a creative and natural atmosphere. They range from a scenic farm in the North of the Netherlands to the snow-covered Pyrenees in France.

The venue is selected with care, since a new environment contributes directly to the acquisition of (fresh) insights. No person or organization is the same, that's why the the training and coaching programs of RMD are always custom made.

All our tailor-made programs and training courses offer you the opportunity to:

  • Become aware and give insight in your behavior and performance;
  • Take responsibility for your actions;
  • Make new and better choices;
  • Experience more joy in work, study or sports;
  • Optimize your management and leadership skills;
  • Work more efficient and goal minded.

For our training and coaching programs, we use powerful, experience-oriented metaphors and methods. Creating a safe space for participants to receive feedback and come to (new) insights.

Metaphors include:

  • Martial arts: Aikido en Brazilian Jiu Jitsu;
  • Animals: horses, sheep, dogs and birds of prey;
  • Outdoor and travel: French Pyrenees, Sweden, Iceland and the Sinai;
  • Organizational constellations, breath work, mindfulness and voice dialogue.

What will you experience

No matter which metaphor we work with, the benchmarks are always fixed. We start with the basics and step gradually out of your comfort zone. This is where your learning process starts!



Discover your frame of reference and dare to step out of it.



Reflect and become aware.



Act, practice, experience.



Become aware of the connection between body and mind.



What works for you and how are you going to anchor and implement this?
