COPING WITH CHANGE & LIMITS
To go for ‘higher and more’ is a common challenge. You can also go for ‘new, different, simple, or workable’. This may get you further, especially these days; less is more!
In her presentation entitled Less is more, mountain climber Katja Staartjes takes you up to highest mountains in the Himalayas. And especially she takes you on a 2000 km mountaineering adventure, a groundbreaking journey from jungles to mountain tops; a wilderness adventure full of unpredictable twists and turns. Her small team encountered all kinds of (literal and symbolic) limits. How did they cope with these? What lessons did they learn?
Her presentation concludes with the earthquake in Nepal. Katja Staartjes experienced this dramatic event in April 2015. What is the impact of something so significant?
This presentation is about change management, about responding to changes, and about pushing and checking your limits. In short, it is all about development.
Katja: “The presentation usually last between 30 minutes and two hours, depending the objectives of the event and the size of the group. I am looking forward to get in touch with you, to talk what fits best to your purpose.
The impact of my presentation is partly dependent on the photographic material. So it should be favourable, when there is a large screen and the room can be darkened to some extent.”
Katja: “My goal is to present an inspiring story that stimulates reflection and gets things moving. I want to have an impact on my audience. Do you want to achieve something more than simply inspiring your team? Then I can incorporate more interaction and discussions in my presentation. Longer sessions, with focusing on certain issues and people working in dyads or small groups are also possible. I will function then as a process leader.”
