Hello, I am Ralu Nistor-Lustermans, the founder of ERNL, a seasoned Internal Auditor, business coach, board member and board advisor, mom, step-mom, wife, entrepreneur, and a very curious learner.
I am passionate about challenging and changing the way organisations fulfil their vision and mission by bringing in a holistic approach which connects people, processes and technology to organisation’s vision, mission, strategy and culture. I believe that effective processes & innovative technologies are organisation’s success enablers, and people are organisation’s heart; therefore organisations need the best of both to succeed.
Born in Romania, where I spend my first years of life until graduating from University, in the last two decades I enjoyed living and working in Italy, Ireland, France, UK and now in the Netherlands, experience which shaped me as an open minded individual who embraces diversity (cultural and neurodiversity) as a source of new perspectives.
I had many great opportunities to have challenging internal audit roles which allowed me to challenge the status quo and make a real impact on organisation’s processes and culture. I believe being an internal auditor is one of the most insightful and rewarding organisational roles, with an area of impact that spams from board level to the front line and operations delivery.
While pursuing my Internal Audit career I found myself getting a deep interest in organisational cultures; in how organisations successfully transform their work culture and create inclusive environments where each employee’s uniqueness and diversity is a source of new perspectives which helps co-creating results. This drew me into business coaching, NLP, applied neuroscience, positive psychology, mental health and other fascinating fields.
ERNL was founded to join the dots, to awaken and transform organisations’ consciousness and support each employee and team be the best they can be, and move from where they are to where they want to be. I enjoy being a critical friend and a voice of reason, and working with organisations and leaders who challenge the status quo and embark on a change journey which requires new ways of thinking and behaving to achieve more effective results.
‘When employees connect with organisation’s mission and vision and the organisation’s culture enables every employee to be at their best, employees will lead the organisation to success.”(ERNL)
