As a facilitator for organizations I want to give people time and space to learn. Ultimately, I wish for people to feel connected to the whole, while at the same time, feel as much personal freedom as an individual.
Of course, this beautiful aim will come accompanied with tensions, especially if people want to work together. These tensions can make issues (even more) complex. I believe, however, that if we can make room for our differences, it will results in a much stronger whole.
In order to facilitate this process, I find it important to use methods to tap into other layers of our knowledge, wisdom and creativity. Methods that are playful and positive and have a creative and / or transformative character. Such as Appreciative Inquiry, Theory U, Deep democracy process work and play coaching (theatre interventions). I also love using Lego Serious Play to engage everyone in the room and create energy!
These processes go beneath the surface and have a strong impact in terms of learning. My expertise lies in psychodrama and ‘participatory drama’. I love these methods for making complex issues visible and tangible, within a very safe learning space. They provide space to explore, experience and learn together and activate the understanding of everyone’s unique perspective, promoting cohesion and common ground.
My background is in Communication Science, directing for theater and film & personal development. So far, I enjoyed working as a facilitator and trainer for municipalities, schools, NGOs and companies – mostly on questions focussing on collaboration and change.
