Ladders and bananas - a survival change kit for government professionals

Enkel Collective

Event outline

Everybody would agree that putting a ladder on top of a banana-peel is not the most efficient solution to avoid falling over the peel. Many organisations have installed these ladders due to uncertainty, lack of trust and fear of change. These ladders are things like inefficient rules, systems, procedures and assumptions.

In times of disruptive change, professionals with an agile mindset are required in the public sector. We need people who can turn problems into opportunities, people who can break their fixed thinking patterns and dare to go for GiGa dreams. We need people who explore the world from a different perspective; people who get into action and who aren’t scared to fail fast, often and forward by applying NaNo actions.

Belgian-based Cyriel Kortleven is a sought-after speaker at conferences, events and leadership development events. Through his playful and enthusiastic attitude to life, he creates an open and informal atmosphere that stimulates people to break their fixed-thinking patterns and inspires them to unleash their full potential. He will show you how to get the spark, the words and tools to awaken your creative power.

YES - Suspend your judgement. Believe.

AND - Explore alternative views. Imagine.

ACT - Get into action. Experiment.

Through a hands-on, interactive session, Cyriel will help you apply tools to spot those ladders, find an alternative route and plan first action steps to remove some of the ladders in your own organisations.

Cyriel has spent more than fifteen years working in the domain of creativity and innovation. He delivers keynote speeches around the world and has presented in 23 different countries on 5 different continents. He is author of four books and one of 750 Certified Professional Speakers (CSP) in the world.
