We empower changemakers to have a positive impact on our world
Motivation Behind Change
We are here for the ones that are ahead of the curve and the ones that dare to think differently, the front-runners. We are here for the ones that want to make a difference in their jobs and life, for the ones that prefer to make ambitious choices and for the ones that are prepared to be the first to take action.
We are great with teams. We are aware that teams are formed of diverse individuals that work together towards a larger aim. We know how you can become and remain a high performing team, how to be capable of performing under pressure and producing efficient results while simultaneously individuals remain integral to the team.
Transforming your Organisation
We made our name by embracing ambitious changes. Impactful changes that require leadership and involve employees, with their attitude and behaviour, are imperative to achieve the desired result.
The purpose is not something you decide. You find it.
We help organisations find their purpose, and as a result social impact, profit and employees grow. Finding a purpose takes time. The process requires research, reflection, and exchange of experience.
A lot of companies are experiencing that change and complexity is steadily increasing. That means that leaders have to trust more and more in the ability of their employees.
Kwetsbaarheid begint met moed. Moed om er te zijn en jezelf te laten zien.

Just go and do it, and do it together. Do it together with newcomers, that is our vision. We work closely with our target audience, respond to a clear demand, continue to listen to a changing need and keep considering how to move forward.
Purpose Day: Mud Jeans
“Mud Jeans originated from a desire to create jeans out of sustainable cotton. Annually 24 billion kilos of cotton is produced. Farming cotton takes large amounts of water and takes up a quarter of the pesticides for just this market.

Purpose Day: The Dutch Weed Burger
It could be that you as a company do not have a purpose at all. The danger arises that the concept will hold no meaning and will erode. To manage that, the message is, to stay sincere. I think it is a great thing that this movement just keeps on growing.
