A meaningful purpose
Late 2018, next to being a head of education at the Hanze university of applied sciences, I became part of the innovationlab 'selforganisation', where we try to learn more on the subject of selforganisation, empowerment in teams and meaningful work. Discussing the subject with colleagues, giving and attending presentations, organising meetups and reading books and research papers gives insight in the subject and serves as an inspiration for my leadership role.
Summer 2019, I finished the master module 'strategy and governance in a wicked world', where I deepened my expertise on the subject of complexity in combination with leadership. Enabling leadership, finding ways to engage people in working on the issues that affect their organisations and themselves. Being adaptive to emergence, chances and the future. But also making sure there is room for change by securing the administrative side. My interest also goes to transition design. A design approach that considers the role of design in making societal transitions towards sustainable futures. Later that year I participated in a module 'mastering Futures Literacy' on anticipatory systems, making sense of the present and imagining the future. In 2020 I returned to IDE Delft to follow a two days masterclass 'Design for Complexity - Using systems and transition thinking in design'.
Looking at my own future, I would like to further co-create groundbreaking education through collective discovery, working our way towards a meaningful purpose and society. As a designer by creating durable solutions for wicked problems. And as a leader, lead by example, making a difference for others and improve on my capacity to let everyone fly.
