Design Thinking the Modern Organization and Relationship
Consulting, facilitation and coaching for organizations, pairs and individuals
Return on Relationship
Emerging from modern-day research on leadership, intelligence, creativity, process psychology and systems theory, and my experience with lean and agile processes in The Netherlands, my work focuses on return on relationship. This focus acknowledges that we are in constant relationship. In relationship to the many aspects of our own self, in relationship to others in our personal and professional lives, or in relationship within a team or organization. I help individuals, couples, and teams increase their emotional, social and relationship systems intelligences. Where emotional intelligence focuses on self-awareness and social intelligence on other-awareness, relationship systems intelligence, allows teams to move beyond the personal and develop a powerful group identity.
Designing powerful relationships
Relationship-oriented work, also known as Processwork, is about creating and leveraging the power of relationship. My toolbox contains skills, experiences, Theory U and Organization and Relationship System Coaching tools, as well as serious games that can be applied to all human relationship systems, from individuals and couples to larger teams and orgs.
Why is individual coaching part of relationship-oriented work as well? The self is the first system, with many selves asking for integration. At the same time, it is being impacted by its many relationships to money, work, friends, family.
Processwork and business process improvement for organizations
In the case of organizations, my knowledge and experience cover the wide range of right-brain processwork practices on the one side, and more left-brain OD practices like the ones conveyed by my title of Senior Advisor Innovative Organization by the Antwerp Management School on the other. Given this broad spectrum of practices and experiences, I call myself an organizational design thinking consultant. I work on-site and on Skype.
