    9 building blocks for connection

    The solution for your (change) issues

    Change model

    We have summarized our years of knowledge and expertise in the "9 Building Blocks for Connection." With this model for change, we uncover patterns, create or break them where necessary, or maintain them when appropriate.

    Throughout this process, we always start from the strength of each individual and approach the (new) situation as a collective entity in which everyone plays a distinct role. It is through this approach that connections are forged. And this is crucial for successful growth.

    The 9 blocks together constitute a successful change strategy to reach the desired goal. Since a (growth) process isn't linear and its elements influence each other, we deliberately opted for blocks. We construct these blocks in a way that the end result aligns perfectly with your specific situation.

    While constructing, we focus on the essence of each block and peel away layers until we reach the core. Fortunately, visual thinking and working are second nature to us, making abstract concepts truly come to life. We can draw from a wealth of existing and self-developed effective practices.

    Book Tip

    New connections arise just outside your comfort zone. Literally, in your brain, and figuratively. To assist you in making new connections, we have written 2 books up until now. One that challenges you to look at various situations differently.

    And one that builds on that mindset, explaining how to establish effective connections.

    A must for all of us

    The delightful (and effective) social practice from Scandinavia. Consciously taking time to catch up over a cup of coffee and something sweet. The power of this moment lies in the fact that it's intentionally scheduled. As a result, you can truly maintain your social contacts. Paying attention to each other and creating a connection. It's only logical that we've adopted this cultural phenomenon.

    Shall we plan a fika moment together soon?

    Let's plan a fika moment.

    Giraffe's perspective

    Our helicopter view, but more down-to-earth and effective

    The giraffe lives exactly as we work. Its field of vision secretly extends beyond what you and we initially see. Of course, this is also due to its long and very flexible neck. As a result, its view is very comprehensive. The giraffe hardly has any enemies; it lives in symbiosis with its environment. That's why it's always cool to see a giraffe. It's curious in a non-intrusive way and always at a respectful distance, so your freedom of movement is respected.

    And yes, it has to stick its neck out! But we also like to do that. To help you grow further.
