Hear acclaimed international speaker, Cyriel Kortleven, share his ideas about creating the right mindset for effectively dealing with change.

Cyriel Kortleven is on a mission in life: boosting the creative & improvisational mindset of leaders in change. Cyriel is a man who practises what he preaches - a veteran in the world of creativity and innovation, he has developed his impressive skills as an inspirational speaker by dreaming big and starting with tiny steps. 

Cyriel stimulates people to break their fixed-thinking patterns and inspires them to unleash their full potential. With almost 20 years’ hands-on experience in the domain of creativity and innovation, he spends an average of around 100 days a year on the 'road' (or in a plane). He is also author of 4 books, and the first Belgian Certified Professional Speaker.

Putting a ladder on top of a banana-peel to avoid somebody falling over it, is probably not the most efficient solution. But it’s weird that you can find several ladders (inefficient rules, habits, assumptions) in almost every organisation. Those ladders had an added value in the past but are not relevant anymore in this changing world. But because we're afraid of change, it's quite hard to get rid of those ladders.

And that's where the Yes And Act gets into the picture. Break your fixed thinking patterns and dare to go for your GiGa dream (Yes). Learn methods to explore the world from different perspectives (And). Get into action and make sure you can fail fast, often and forward by applying NaNo actions (Act). Get inspired by several tailor-made examples and stories and experience the power of thinking in a ‘Yes And Act’ mindset.

YES - Suspend your judgement. Believe.

AND - Explore alternative views. Imagine.

ACT - Get into action. Experiment.
