Dr. Theo Compernolle MD. PhD., born in Bruges, Belgium, is an independent consultant, coach, trainer and key-note speaker.

He consulted, taught and coached executives and entrepreneurs, in a wide range of (multi)national companies, service professional firms, teaching and training institutions, on the emotional and relational aspects of management and leadership in times of stress and change, the metamorphosis of an entrepreneur and the interface between a business family and the family business.

He teaches or coaches in the executive programs of business schools such as at INSEAD (France), the Vlerick Leuven Ghent School for Management of the universities of Gent and Leuven in Belgium and the TIAS business school in Tilburg (Netherlands).

As a medical doctor, neuropsychiatrist and psychotherapist, he has been doing research on stress since 1976. He became an expert on the emotional and relational aspects of leadership and the enhancement of resilience of executives, executive teams and organizations, especially in times of stress and change.

He is the former Suez Chair in Leadership and Personal Development at the Solvay Business School, Adjunct Professor at large at INSEAD, Visiting Professor at the Vlerick School for Management and Professor at the Free University of Amsterdam.

He does this in English, Dutch and French.

He published several books (two best sellers) and more than a hundred scientific articles. His book "STRESS: FRIEND AND FOE. Vital Stress Management at work and in the family" became a management best-seller and so did the video’s/DVD’s based on it.
