Perfect Problem Breakthrough


Jurgen De Smet: Jurgen De Smet started to really learn (read: out of school) since 1996 within Software Development environments, starting out as a monkey in a small company filling his days with installations, upgrades, bug fixing & integration development… dealing with other species as customers, end-users, other suppliers provided great insight into the jungle we work. From that moment on he could not longer be the monkey and somehow started to mutate to a gorilla (team lead), king-kong (group lead) to one of the lions around (R&D Manager) expanding his territory of knowledge, learning from other jungles and finding better ways to survive while changing the environments from a jungle to a commune of transparency, trust, effectiveness and collaboration among all species around. Being busy with change since 2001 in different jungles, having met with over a 100 of different species, we could call Jurgen a chameleon with a huge backpack of knowledge, technique’s and frameworks to support other lions out there to do just enough of the right thing at the right time and be respected for it. Jurgen get's his mojo out of assignments that require engagement, collaboration and fun! These days he loves to apply Management 3.0 games, Innovation Games(r) & Gamestorming techniques to achieve unexpected results. Erik Talboom: Erik Talboom loves to help other people out, it's something that has been important for him as long as he can remember. He used to tutor people while he was still in school, helping out fellow students whenever he had the chance. It wasn't that weird that after a few years of professional experience, he ended up teaching class. He has trained and coached several teams on different subjects, ranging from process oriented topics like scrum, kanban and effective collaboration through gamestorming to more technical focused topics like test automation, test driven development and software craftsmanship principles.


In this session you’ll get insights on how to use Christopher Avery’s Responsibility Process in the context of handling problems and thus change. We will explain you the 3 key’s to responsibility and how to gain control/power of the situations at hand. We will use learning from the Leadership Gift program we are following with Christopher Avery and provide insights related to the Responsibility Process, Keys to Responsibility and the Power or Control Cycles. We will give you some very powerful tools and techniques that will change your world. All of this requires your input, interaction and insights. So... do not expect a lot of slides here, we'll have some co-learning fun together!
