Arjan Postma

Profile

Guiding people and organizations through transformation by building creative strategies and a thriving culture. My goal is to not just prompt possible solutions, but moreover to train people to resolve challenges themselves. My focus is on digital transitions or purpose-driven change. Preferably both to make a real difference.

So, I’m passionate about knowhow and crazy about people! My ‘thing’ is to help organizations, teams or individuals to thrive in the challenging surroundings of the 21st century. I love to train, coach, speak but most of all I want to make things happen for real. To get the right things done by working ánd learning together. That’s what I like to call; Research-through-Development.

Subjects that fascinate me at the moment? ‘Ondernemend & Onderzoekend Organiseren’ – How to unleash the creative capacity of teams – The Playful city as an answer to Smart cities – Going Stack: thinking in networks of networks – The road towards more sustainability – Rise of the Quantum Generation
