We are hundreds of like-minded people worldwide. You can get to know a few of us here.
We always keep a free seat for people like you at the table. So feel free to introduce yourself at the Appreciative Inquiry Community.
I am a networker and strong facilitator with a passion for people. Creative brainstormer and teambuilder. Effective communication and organization skills combined with a friendly and approachable personality. Highly disciplined and committed to quality customer service.
The main theme throughout my career is technology design and it's implementation in every day life. As a trainer/consultant I have designed and delivered learning and training programs around issues as full customer satisfaction, entrepreneurship and management development.
Specialties: Program design, developer and facilitator of various large group interventions
Appreciative Inquiry, Future Search, Open Space, Influencing
I have been privileged to meet people of all kinds of different cultural backgrounds. In the many conversations I have had, I have learned from other people’s experiences and stories. They have broadened my horizon.
As an appreciative practitioner, I explore with my clients their concerns, their challenges and their talents. I consider my counselling successful if my clients feel comfortable in telling their own story and taking leadership.
My partners in Dhaka are YYGoshti (start-up incubator), SBK Foundation (Digital technologies in rural Bangladesh) and PUM (Senior experts Netherlands).
Member of NIP (Netherlands Institute of Psychologists).
Living in South Africa is a challenge, a privilege, and a rich experience ... not for the soft-hearted. I am a teambuilding practitioner and I absolutely thrive in working with teams - assisting them to perform and see the world through new eyes. With over a hundred teambuilds with VWSA alone, we are right up there with the leaders in this field. Here we have the honour of partnering with corporates to shape the future for many.
I also assist in managing an NPO - The OLI Foundation, which is an adventure-based youth leadership initiative that works with thousands of young people every year. Africa is an exciting adventure and our youth need positive role models that will assist them in leading the way in this the 4th Industrial Revolution, and quite possibly the last one we will get to experience.
As Ron Fry says, conversation is the only game in town. I help organizations to communicate better and create meaningful conversations based on trust.

I am a strong believer in Business as an Agent for World Benefit, and love when companies and people in general gather around a problem, we face, and solve it with appreciative eyes and collaborative minds.
One of my contributions to the world is human-centered Organizational Governance (www.hcOrG.com) for which I curate the Life at Work // Weekly newsletter (join it!).
I also founded speakGreen to promote an intentional, life-affirming language for the future (www.speak-Green.com) and published the book Words Create Worlds: Cultivating a Conscious, Life-Affirming Language.
Since 1998, I facilitate transformations and r*evolutions in organizations, teams and individuals in the Maghreb, the Middle East and Subsaharan Africa. I provide individual and team coaching, consultation, trainings and online courses regarding a wide variety of topics within the areas of the HUMAN futures of work*ing and collaborating. As a keynote and TEDx speaker I offer inspiring, mind-expanding and action-provoking talks.

I'm looking forward to hearing from you 🙂
Our approach is based on understanding people: we can work with any organisation to develop leadership and vision, work performance and engagement, and a positive work culture. We specialise in working with change.
My mission is humanization of organization. Free 'right to copy' download of my AI 3.0 book on www.appreciativeinquiries.eu.
My greatest hope is that we as humanity become even better in taking care of ourselves, each other and the planet. Saying that, I recognize that this is easier said than done.
That's why I am passionate about personal and organizational development.
If that resonates with you and you would like to know more, let’s start a conversation and dare to imagine!
Exploring the world my three sons and grandchildren of 3 and 5 years old gives me great joy. Working with my friends and colleagues is always enriching.
Being with my husband Barend and traveling with him to new cultures and people gives life very rich dimensions.
And of course working with teams, looking for new solutions with clients and help people making their own choices always brings me joy.

Madavi is aligning strengths towards aspirations in the sense of opportunities.
We act upon the culture and business at the same time.
We are facilitators, that is to say, we make it easy.
By being appreciative, we see more strengths and potential in our clients than
they do themselves.
Passionate about participatory processes using tools like Appreciative Inquiry to co-create, bringing individuals, teams, organizations, communities, to reach sustainable results, and to help them reach their potential. Committed to alternative energy and environmental protection. Thinking about how do the businesses of tomorrow should look like, in this very interconnected world.
Flexible to work in international and diverse working environments with strong cross-cultural communication skills. Have lived and work in 7 courtiers in different continents, proficient in English-Spanish-French-German-Portuguese.
First, we want to be there for our customers when they need us. We feel - as the fox from the Little Prince reminds us - (co-)responsible for the people and organizations we have become familiar with. In crises, we are therefore always available.
Secondly, we definitely have our own goals, some would say a mission. And this could be described as subversive (although it is no longer so if we disclose it here): We do not consider companies to be an end in themselves, but find that they have to serve: People and society. We want to (be able to) talk with each other and with our customers about what this service consists of in concrete terms.
I believe that we can build beautiful and powerful organisations when everyone involved takes a stand and gives it his best shot.
Starting from what works I like to create a safe space where everything that needs to be discussed is welcomed. Only by invested in this open and inviting environment, we can move forward together.
Apart from this I believe that using new, engaging and creative methods encourages people to do what's needed to achieve the impressive results they strive to.
Being playful, building ownership, creating an open and safe space, ... are some of my main ways to get humans in motion. It's not about me, it's about the people I work with.
Connecting conversations are the core of what happens when I work with people. Out of these conversations beautiful things will emerge.
And the beauty of it all is that the people can continue on their way without me because I encourage them to follow their own strengths and passion.
