Helpful and interested, I like to take care of those around me. But a follower? I will never be one. The leadership of a group often comes to me naturally. Whether as captain of the basketball team, as a classroom teacher or as part of a working group; the recipe for success is, in my opinion, the same. Involved, I connect with and give direction to those around me, while firmly being myself.
I do not believe in authority, but in commitment. In my opinion, hierarchy by title alone is not sustainable. Self-assured and modest, firm and committed, I naturally like to take the lead.
In front of the crowd
Where I naturally like to take the lead, I also really enjoy being in front of a group. For example, I’ve taught for a while, have been a mentor, and am comfortable giving presentations.
There are many people who can talk your ears off, but there are only a handful who really listen. I like to give space to the opinions of others. In doing so, I try to listen not only on an emotional level but also analytically, allowing me to ask the right questions.
Without a certain harmony and connection, you won’t get ahead together. At least, not in a nice way. Without judgement, I connect with different characters and, in doing so, teach them to do the same.
Jasper is curious about…
Trade, business … extremely interesting! A while ago I started trading Jordans and Nikes. What I find fascinating is how such a specific market works and how it is possible for something to get a certain value just because it is a hyped product. I enjoy overseeing the whole game of trading and having a view of the bigger picture.
I have worked on this project…
Junior Business Change & Implementatie Manager at Rabobank
As Junior Business Change & Implementation Manager at Rabobank, I supported the Commercial Support and Corporate Insurance departments in various projects and implementations. Within Commercial Support, for example, I contributed to the continuous improvement of working methods, processes and policy within the department in the form of an improvement tool. My role here focused on the communication aspect, i.e. how to communicate towards a submitter of an improvement proposal. I also went into the country to conduct a pilot on a new work system for finance specialists at various regional offices. In this I was responsible for the smooth organization. By switching quickly and communicating clearly, I managed to stand my ground. Within Corporate Insurance I worked on a business case, where the focus for me was on the role differentiation that will occur within this department; which roles will disappear and what will replace them? I thought it was cool to put my background in strategic HRM to practical use here. Finally, working in two different departments, I had to deal with many stakeholders. As a result, I learned a lot in stakeholder management.
