Toolbox

My favorite exercises and tools.

It is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail. So I try to expand my toolkit of exercises, models, frameworks, and structures continuously. Here’s an overview of the structures I often use in workshops, meetings and sessions, but also in my private life.

Seven tool categories ... and tools for remote meetings.

What job do you need to get done?

Based on what you would like to achieve, I have categorised the tools I often use. For example, the Mexican Wave helps energise crowds, Idea speed dating is a great way to generate ideas fast and some exercises are just perfect for remote meetings.

Remote meetings

Many tools and exercises that work offline, work remotely. But there are some tweaks.

Act and do more.

From marketing to make-a-thing. What tools to use to talk less and do more, either as a person or a company.

How I work

I was lucky enough to be working for a wide range of international clients over the last 15 years. Much of my open and collaborative style is based on this experience, as well as certified training by IDEO, Hyper Island and Liberating Structures.

We’ll start with a conversation. I want to thoroughly understand your ideas and values in your own words. This will help us build a session or series of sessions that will help reach your goals – whether it is communicating with your team, building a new strategy or developing a new product or service.
