• Positive change

    As an optimist, I add positivity to change. From the belief that organisations are all about people, I look at what people need to work well together.

Positive change

Be positive about what works today, and optimistic about what you could do better tomorrow. 
When people collaborate, they discuss how they want work together beforehand. In organisations thousands of these written and unwritten results exists. This often leads to these processes to dominate, whilst the reason to work together in the first place fades into the background. I think this is odd, because it is the overarching purpose that inspires people to work harder and perform better. I remind collaboration people (also called organisations) what it is really about. The positivity that then comes about is used to look at these agreements (also called processes) again and find out whether they are still serving the joint purpose. Change does not have to be an agony. Be positive about what works today, and optimistic about what you could do better tomorrow.

Positivity is contagious! As an optimist, I add positivity to change. By focusing on what already goes well, great things happen!

Big bang imposed changes rarely succeed. Successful changes require the people to be part of the change. I work with people in organisations to actively change in a practical way.
