Geert’s mission is to work with leaders to solve their most critical issues by including human-centred strategies that work in their unique context. In all of his work, he starts his project from the challenge and ambitions at business level and in addition integrates psychologically informed approaches focusing on underlying motivational forces, deeper sources of energy and behavioural patterns. He strongly believes it is key to understand deeper motivations and resistance to change and to uncover and tackle the root of potential dysfunction rather than to simply deal with its manifestations.
In his recent research at INSEAD, he explored the challenges of human dynamics of collaboration within and between organisations and how to maximize the success of initiatives to get rid of silo-working, silo mentality by integration a functional and psychological perspective in a hands-on approach.
