Cees-Hoogendijk-2017

Thirty five years of experience in guiding and facilitating organisations and institutions in their sustainable development toward flourishing. Focus on the organisation as an emerging complex of people relations. Enabling senior managers to see their organisations from the pan-optical perspective, and act accordingly as connectors. Appreciative Inquiry as lifestyle, and bringing it further through education. Projects involve dialogical organisation development, co-creating advanced learning environments, leadership development, bringing further the vertical dialogue, appreciative, asynchronous reciprocity … awaiting generative organising promoted by generative leaders.

A reflection on the theme: 'Towards a Loving World, Leadership and Governance for Well-Being'.

My work with organisations and my workshop on connective leadership resonate highly with this year's theme. We spend a major part of our time in some kind of organisation, which serves consciously or unconsciously as an influencing context. The more constructive, appreciation, connectedness and love we experience in our work, the more we will spread it in our lives, families and networks.
