Veel trainingen die gegeven worden, reiken deelnemers tools en handvatten aan om een bepaalde competentie beter te ontwikkelen. Of dit nu een training presentaties geven, klantcontact, project management, feedback geven en ontvangen, coaching vaardigheden, cross-culturele samenwerking, of iets anders is. Deze tools en handvatten zijn ontzettend waardevol.
Echter, deelnemers hebben vaak meer nodig dan dat. Vaak ervaren ze, bewust of onbewust, belemmerende overtuigingen om bepaalde dingen te doen. Als die belemmerende overtuigingen niet blootgelegd en omgebogen worden in een training dan is de groei meestal aan de oppervlakte. En dan is iemand naar een leuke training geweest maar de return-on-investment is beperkt. In mijn trainingen wil ik beide aanreiken, zowel de tools als de diepere persoonlijke inzichten. Dit leidt tot betere resultaten. Dat maakt mij blij maar ook mijn klanten.
Sinds Corona kwam de vraag van een aantal van mijn klanten om virtueel training te geven. Ook hiervoor is mijn bedrijf ingericht en de tevredenheid van deelnemers aan deze trainingen doet niet onder voor die van deelnemers aan een face-to-face training. Groepen in virtuele trainingen beperk ik meestal tot 9 personen. In face-to-face trainingen of workshops heb ik groepen tot 100 personen en 20 verschillende nationaliteiten begeleid.
Sommige van mij grotere klanten hebben een bedrijf nodig dat training, coaching en employee development op grotere schaal kan leveren. Daarvoor wijs ik altijd naar mijn jarenlange nauwe samenwerking met AIMS international. Ik heb nog geen opdracht gekregen die ik zelf ook wilde maar niet kon vervullen.

I really appreciated the cross-cultural workshop Jeroen gave us, as his background, deep insights and international experience made the whole content very authentic and helpful working for global acting companies. Having a similar international background myself, I really liked participating in the group activities and role games and talking about those findings with my colleagues. I appreciate the great work and passion Jeroen put into his workshop and looking forward to the next one.

As a multi-national company, it’s really important to understand each other’s cultures as we communicate and work with different colleagues and cultures every day. It was a very interesting training and made me want to go and learn a bit more about the cultures that we experience every day.
Adil Hameed, IT System Administrator
I was raised in France, in a family of different nationalities. I learned to appreciate, acknowledge and respect cultural differences, at a young age. Often these differences are about details. These may seem insignificant for some but essential for others. Professionally and privately, it is essential to discover other cultures, to understand what makes them rich and special, in a spirit of respect and tolerance. It helps you anticipate different reactions, grasp their origin and defuse the difficulties and potential conflicts. Jeroen has the talent to link people and open their mind, gently, with intelligence, humor and subtlety. These sessions with him made me and my colleagues think and grow. They have helped us to consider things from a different perspective to better work and live together.
Anne-Sophie Bociaga, Senior Product Marketing Manager
Ideas are easy, execution is everything. This is a moto that I have for many years and having now had several sessions with Jeroen just helped me to gain insight into the differences we have in our multifaceted and multi-cultural company. By understanding these cultural models, I can be more prepared for creating a common pool of meaning among my peers to be able to ensure successful plan execution and stronger collaboration.
Boris Kibrik, Product Marketing Manager
I found Jeroen’s talk really insightful about how to manage the differences across our North Europe team. I come from a very European family, and therefore have always been aware of cultural differences in a personal situation; but this session helped show me the smaller, more hidden ways through which culture can come into play in a professional context. I know I’ve taken some communication and behavioural tips away with me to improve my collaboration and teamwork!
Elena Jones, Marketing Coordinator
Emerging markets are the most complex with more than a hundred countries worldwide. The cross-cultural workshop helped me understand the differences between cultures. It reminds me when I am in contact with other markets, always to be mindful of their culture which affects the way they think, and the way they perceive what I say. Love to have one more workshop to dive a bit deeper. Thanks a lot!
Kizzy Cheng, Product Marketing Manager
You think you know your colleagues well, and assume, because we all speak English, they hear us and we understand them… but we miss so much. The session from Jeroen peeled back some of our closest colleagues’ layers to reveal their real cultural identity and visa-versa. Now there is actual understanding on where we align, but also great respect of our differences.
Richard Hirons, Academy Director
I enjoyed Jeroen’s interactive training on cultural differences. Some thought-provoking discussions on recognising cultural diversity between ourselves and our colleagues; and invaluable in improving our communication with one another.
Teri Bacci, Marketing Communication Specialist
I really liked the cross-culture session Jeroen provided. It gave me several “aha” moments for realizing why people from other cultures act and respond the way they do. Working in a culturally diverse organization, the awareness and understanding of cultural differences is of utmost importance to ensure good collaboration across the team and different departments, and to move projects in the right direction in a timely fashion. This session helped me, a Chinese, to cope with and decode different cultures.
