Good facilitation is like magic
You know it can’t possibly be as effortless as what you see. And yet, you’re deeply enjoying that meeting because someone else thought of everything for you.
Thinking of everything for our clients has been our job and passion since 2013.
Stephanie Berger · Director
Stephanie supports businesses developing a human-centred focus, making customers happy and employees engaged. This means understanding the ‘Why’ of customers or helping organisations uncover existing culture to better shape a new, innovative work environment.
As a facilitator, she designs bespoke formats to tap into teams’ collective intelligence. As a service design coach, she captures the shared assumptions in the room and transforms them into testable hypotheses. She also supports transformation teams in communicating change to employees to accelerate implementation.
She has coached teams in Dutch, French and English, and has worked for policy agencies, SMEs, as well as for larger companies such as ING and KBC.
