The co-creation that yesterday seemed so far away was suddenly happening in the room, here and now.

In that moment we started to work as if we were one. We were in contact with our selves, each other, the past and our common intention – all at the same time. Facilitating processes like this and creating space for real connection is something that I find deeply satisfying. Innovating new ways of working that makes these connections possible is something that that gives me energy.

I think that the human brain can be used as a metaphor for organisations. The intelligence of the brain is not correlated with the quantity of brain cells, but rather the number of connections between the cells and the quality of the connections. I think the same is valid for organisations. The potential of creating relevant and qualitative relations between individuals and groups in organisations is enormous. Supporting collaboration and alignment towards a common higher purpose is a way to creating sustainable and effective organisations and a better world. That motivates me!
