At my best with complex issues, which require a lot of movement, co-creation and cooperation to achieve collective impact. With a passion for guiding and further developing (personal) leadership of professionals. My experience and background is a mix of 15+ in NGO p.r. and communication management, program / stakeholder management, 10+ years of experience with creative processes (direction and coaching av industry) and 5+ experience with process facilitation and design at governments (nat. government / municipalities).
I would describe myself as result-oriented, energetic, analytical and intuitive. I often hear from people that I bring a lot of energy, movement and create space to experiment and also to fail. I also tend to challenge people. I am ambitious – a ‘reach for the stars’ kind of person…My heart lies with the climate, democratisation and personal development. Eager to learn, especially on deep democracy, (eastern) philosophy, meditation, intuition and other mental states to progress and deal with our 21st century challenges.
I can completely find myself in Perspectivity’s vision on dealing with current complex challenges. That is that we must (learn to) deal with various perspectives and stakeholders. There is no longer 1 party who is the expert and no one party has the total overview. Traditional (waterfall) approaches to management therefore do not work or do not work satisfactorily. We see there is no qualitative communication and decision making and this leads to undesired actions and results.
The intended change or innovation suffers and does not get off the ground ….In this way valuable time, energy and money are wasted. Time, energy and money that we could possibly have used differently. For the benefit of an inclusive, sustainable – yes, future-proof world.
Hence, the need for people, information, resources, parties within a (new) project or program to be streamlined with each other, is essential. In order to make the right choices, for support, cohesion, movement and innovation. I would like to help you with that, as a facilitator, process designer, program manager or strategic advisor.
I improve communication and decision-making processes so that decisiveness, co-creation and the impact of cooperation can be demonstrably improved.
Until now I have worked with municipalities, colleges, NGOs and companies – on cooperation and change issues.
