We make teams and organizations stronger, more cohesive and more creative.
Our Synnervate team consists of seven Changemakers: Ard, Marinet, Jasper, Edwin, Marcel, Allard and Rob. We share the ambition to contribute structurally to the transitions needed for a just and sustainable world. Our source of inspiration are the Sustainable Development Goals developed by the United Nations. We have found that awareness development is an important condition to get one or two steps closer to the realization of those goals. At this point, it is not only about new and better solutions, but also about a more inclusive and integral way of thinking and acting.
Our work in organizations and teams often causes a focus shift: a move from yourself towards the whole you are part of. This gives the possibility for people to feel free to contribute to the whole without sacrificing their own identity. This individuality is precisely what is needed to shape transitions.
While we are not experts in societal issues ourselves, our clients certainly are. By working with them on consciousness and organizational development, we are currently contributing to 9 of the Sustainable Development Goals.
