Turn your "old" problem upside down to get a new view on it

Do you find you are often "stuck" on the same issue?
Turn the problem upside down, and look at it from a different angle.


Have you ever thought about how much other professionals, in in unrelated fields, can help you look at your own business from a fresh angle?

During our creative problem solving workshop held by Adi Muslic we did just this.

Adi’s expertise in project management is mostly from working with big organisations, but the post-it fuelled creative problem-solving method applies perfectuly to small businesses as well.

Here are five takeaways I walked away with:

1. Approach the problem from a different angle.
Brainstorm solutions on sticky notes & draw them too… This opens up your thinking to new solutions!

2. Tap into collective intelligence - don’t ruminate about it alone.
Set a problem-solving coffee date with a trusted group of entrepreneurs and get creative.

3. Have the courage to eliminate the weakest solutions.

What IS a Mastermind group even?

community mastermind Jan 15, 2024

 "The concept sounds interesting, but... what IS a mastermind group exactly?"

That’s a question I’ve heard a lot over the past few months!

 

So I decided to list the basics.

What is a mastermind group?
You’ll find a whole host of definitions; this is my summarised one!

A mastermind group is made up of around five members who help each other grow professionally with advice and active support from the other members. The concept was created by Napoleon Hill in 1925.

How, specifically, do members support each other?
-       By sharing a problem and all focus together to find the best solution
-       Growing through combined networks
-       Teaching each other about our expertise for growth
-       Holding each other accountable for goals and actions
-       Providing a safe space to move...

THAT dreaded interview question – and what to do about it.

interview workshop Jan 11, 2024

What’s THAT interview question you dread?

You’d better be ready to answer it!

Discomfort shows during an interview, even if there is nothing to hide, or nothing done “wrong”, the discomfort IS contagious. And it’s worth getting rid of.

 

Often you already have the answer inside of you, you just need a little help formulating it clearly and to gather the confidence with which to express yourself if and when you need to answer it.


In this "most common interview mistakes" article that you can download, I cover a few I’ve seen throughout my career and how you can avoid them.

 

If you want to practice your own interviewing skills book yourself a “boost-me" workshop and well make sure you are “sticky-interview-question-ready”!

And just like that… 5 years flew by

Uncategorized Jan 11, 2024

I woke up to a lot of activity in my LinkedIn inbox.

What happened? I thought.

“Is it my birthday? Are we in June already?”

 

Not my birthday.

My 5-year work anniversary.

 

I feel stunned. Really? Has it been that long???

I feel proud. I’m still here!

 

And yes, I feel frustrated.

You may be surprised to see me write that.

  1. I’m the eternal optimist
  2. Aren’t we only supposed to mention our successes when we communicate?

 

The second one really gets me. It looks like no one struggles. Everyone is successful. Then when someone suddenly makes a change we are surprised. What happened? They were doing so well…?

 

But – you know – I’m Dutch. We don’t do diplomacy very well. For better or for worse.

 

I do have to admit I feel frustrated that I’m not further yet.

  • I’m nowhere close to where I thought I was headed when I started out
  • I don’t feel like I have achieved much...
