Work Methods and Qualifications

Work Methods

The work methods that I use have two main characteristics: interactive and participatory. These bottom-up work methods have proven to be effective and productive. Above all, they are incredibly energising for the participants.
To my experience, these methods ensure that participants establish common ground and find future perspectives. It guarantees local ownership, fosters shared responsibility among multiple stakeholders, reinforces social cohesion and stimulates dialogue.

  • Appreciative Inquiry (AI)
  • Meta Praxis of McWhinney
  • Design Thinking
  • Positive Psychology
  • Experience-based Learning

  • De Bono and mind mapping
  • SWOT analysis
