My story
For over 30 years, I am a business, system and organization advisor for clients from diverse sectors and industries. During these years I experienced the ever-increasing complexity and dynamics that appeared in organizations. “Where does this trend end?’, was a regular asked question that kept me occupied. We have increasingly less time for continuously bigger challenges. Business results of clients are under pressure. Existing methods became outdated. Current mindsets suffice no longer. 

Besides that, since I was young I got interested in polarities. I used them while I cooked. I played with them while practicing martial arts. I was interested in the philosophy behind them. I applied them in my work. My observation was that my greatest successes happened when I applied polarities. This made me decide to take my research on applying polarities seriously. I worked on the concepts of polarities and polar systems. I developed a series of tools I could use to explain a great variation of polar phenomena. My revelation came when I discovered how with Polarities we can manage and architect Real Change. 

That is how I came to:
Polarism, the method for making things that arise.
For years I have restrained myself to share these insights. But I had to overcome the self-doubt that had underlain me for all this time. Simply put, people and organizations nowadays are in urgent need for these insights. I just have to share the Polarism Insights.
We live in transformative times. With Polarism people can find what effect these times have on them, since transformations and all other types of change are all polar phenomena.

With Smart Insights, people can acquire the insights they urgently need in life, career and business. With Polarism they unravel their issues and can come to clarity and confidence; to bigger impacts and more prosperity.

With Polarism companies can explain for the effects Real Changes have on their organizations and accordingly act on them. With it, they can take on greater challenges within the context of increasing complexity and dynamics. Businesses need the insights provided by Polarism to leave behind outdated practices in organizations development and build up new ones. They need Polarism harder than ever to be able to progress again.

People and companies need Polarism to relief themselves from worrisome changes happening to them. Polliance helps me to make this unique and innovative expertise available for you. It is available now through Your Smart Insights Program.
