I'm Marc Vollebregt, and I work as a Process Designer & Facilitator
Today, when we think and talk about work, we usually want to change and innovate our products or services. Do it bigger, better, or different.
But to be successful, you need to change how you work together as well. That’s why I help organisations to build the right culture – so that everyone can do their best work.
– Establish psychological safety
– Define non-constructive behaviour and values
– Create a human connection with each other
– Build a culture that enables people to reach their potential
– Decide on the strategy for the coming years
– Reflect as a team, give and receive feedback
– Ideate on new ideas for a challenge
– Re-align with each other
Culture is abstract, it’s intangible, it’s a gut feeling; Right? I believe it's not. Culture can be very concrete. That’s why I developed the Culture Canvas. No fluffiness, no vague values; Assessing your culture is as easy as filling in a piece of paper. See if there’s any difference in what you say you do, and what you really do. And moreover, know the next steps towards changing your culture in something you want.
Last year, I organized the first event of Humanizing Organizations. I invited people that inspire me, to share with forty othershow they humanize their organization; Something I always strive for when working with my clients. This wasn’t your usual sit and listen event. Attendant or speaker: everybody was equally important, sharing experiences and knowledge with each other – leading to an evening that was most definitely inspiring.
For Interpolis, I facilitated a group of twenty-five experts of behavioural scientists, insurers, designers, and developers, for two days to come up with a solution for safe use of smartphones in traffic. Our solution was presented to the Dutch Minister of Infrastructure, and is now being developed!
The past century, work changed from doing manual labour to sharing ideas. And if you can’t share them, your organization misses out. Therefore I believe in a human organisation with psychological safety as a fundament. Frankwatching invited me to share my thoughts on humanizing organizations on their Digital Workspace Event.
"Marc has a talent for creating a safe atmosphere. An atmosphere in which it feels safe to share personal information. As a result, he knows how to get to the heart of the behavior that opposes necessary change in order to achieve positive results. It enables organizations to work from their strengths."
"Really super to work with Marc! I asked him to facilitate a 24-hour session with twentytwo participants from sixteen different organizations. Marc quickly builds trust, energy and good vibe in the team. Our goal was to create a solution for a complex social problem. The creative techniques and energizers Marc provided us with were most welcome. I am very happy with the outcome of the session and will surely ask Marc again for future events."
