We welcome you to join us in the dialogue to explore what is possible and create new connections. Get inspired to help create a better world of work in 2018!
The next Conversation Session
Session #8: Activity Based Working and how it encourages strong leaders
Strong leadership is critical to business success in the competitive world of work today. But, even with organisations investing in leadership development programs, employee engagement surveys continue to point at poor leadership. WHY?
Workers are already demanding we re-define leadership, and will continue to until we find a solution. Activity Based Working (ABW) could well provide a catalyst and a platform for this change.
Gijs Nooteboom, our Managing Partner at Veldhoen + Company, wants to host a provocative conversation on WHY and HOW, the ABW philosophy could be powerful in influencing leadership; How the evolving workplace can be used to challenge leaders to consider new attitudes, aptitudes and mindsets; and to Explore with us which leadership skills we feel will be challenged by employees in a new contemporary workplace. Bring it on! Another fun packed, meaty conversation session!
Who should attend this session ?
Organisational Development, Human Resources, Learning and Development, Leadership Development, Talent Management and Change Management professionals.

Community of Passionate Individuals
Together, we aim to build a community of passionate individuals who are up for the challenge of tackling a wide variety of work related subjects that can help create more meaning and understanding in how we, and others, can positively impact the World of Work. Having held a few sessions so far, we have seen a dedicated community of like-minded people develop; a community that supports, encourages and shares stimulating and often provocative ideas and topics on the world of work. We are open to discussing various subjects that are suggested by you or your colleagues but aspire to focus on the human aspects of work, including topics in organisational development, human resources, learning and development, and change management.
