CHANGE MANAGEMENT & AGILITY ARE A MUST
Change management is becoming increasingly important in this time of rapid change developments. To stand still is to regress….…
Is there willingness to change? How do you get people to really ‘buy in’ to the change, to tackle this journey? How can you be sure that you’re not running behind the facts, but that you can keep up with changes? Or better still, stay ahead of them?
Himalayan climber Katja Staartjes: “Are you looking for a speaker who really motivates your people to get the best out of themselves, and to grow? My story is based on my intense experiences as a Himalayan mountaineer and I combine this with my personal background in senior management roles. That is why I can easily make the translation to your situation and help you to further develop your organisation.”
Going along with the changes
High up in the high mountains, circumstances are extreme and they can change from one second to the next. This demands constant alertness. Being able to handle these sudden changes and being able to anticipate them is a critical success factor.
In Katja’s presentations, the topic of change management prevails. Her impressive photographic image material provides a truly great impact, and inspires improved methods for dealing with current developments and changes. As a manager of various complex change projects (e.g. mergers and large restructurings), Katja Staartjes has acquired first hand personal experience of what is involved in change management.
Katja: “I customise my speech. We determine the content and duration of the session, focusing on themes that are important to your team/company. For example:
• Joint goal
• Dealing with incertainty
• Doing more with less
Images with impact
During my presentations I use breath taking images from my expeditions to peaks such as Mount Everest (8848 m) and other mountain giants in Nepal and Pakistan to strengthen my story. This visual support ensures that the messages actually have impact and make a lasting impression.
I wrote 3 books about my personal experiences in the mountains: Top-inspiratie (available in English as Peak Performance), Hoog spel (High stakes) and Lopen over de grens – Great Himalaya Trail door Nepal (Hiking along the border – Great Himalaya Trail through Nepal).”
