We can't do it on our own. To move forward, it is essential that we connect with others. By seeking depth in conversations, I know how to create this connection with others; from that position, we can join forces to achieve our goals. That's what energises me. This is reflected in my fascination with personal development; we need others, and others need us, to discover our blind spots. I am 100% committed to continuous improvement!
A listening ear
People around me regularly share their personal situations with me. I like to hear the story behind the person. That’s because I’m interested in people, but also because I believe that mutual understanding is necessary for cooperation to flourish.
I have a good dose of positive energy, which is contagious to those around me. In addition, my open attitude acts as an invitation for others to open up themselves.
I enjoy observing people and situations, which helps me to quickly grasp what is going on under the surface. I test and deepen my observations by asking critical questions; why do we do what we do?
The bigger picture
I know how to make connections between segmented bits of information: the things I observe and the things that different people tell me. This allows me to see the bigger picture, identify the things that trigger certain situations and anticipate the possible consequences.
Savanne is curious about…
Other people! Their stories, motivations, ideas… To get to know the other person better and to learn from them myself. ‘Work engagement’ is another thing that fascinates me. I think it is a subject that is often underestimated. If you ask me, though, staff is the number one reason that enables an organisation to achieve excellence and continue developing.
In Colombia, I walked the four-day trek to ‘The Lost City’. This meant being completely isolated from everything for several days, in the midst of nature with my own thoughts and ideas. For me, it was an innovative, challenging but also an almost therapeutic experience. Oh, and better think twice about joining if you’re afraid of snakes!
