• The Change Mindset

    Survivalkit for professionals in Change

    • Trend watchers and futurists will flabbergast you with hip and hot examples of new technologies and trends in the world (but they easily skip the part on how to handle them).
    • Motivational speakers will boost the energy of your audience to be open for change (but they often forget to bring all that energy to practical application).
    • Change managers will focus on structures and processes to facilitate change in an organisation (but they might lose track of the professional in the organisation)

    If you are in search of clues on HOW you yourself can keep up with the ever-changing world, then this bookazine is a must-read for you.


    This book is about The Change Mindset.


    HOW do you cope with the changes you see in the world around you?

    Which PRACTICAL tools will help you stay flexible and open to possibilities?

    How can YOU boost your creative and entrepreneurial mindset? And stimulate the mindset of the PEOPLE you work with?


    Sure, change can be frightening. But change doesn’t have to be hard. It all starts with the right mindset. Set your mind to change.

    Cyriel Kortleven

    Imagine a man coming in. He’s friendly. Joyful. Expressive. Very present to what you want to discuss with him and happy to be of service. His enthusiasm is contagious, his playfulness apparent, his creativity endless. At the same time he is practical and to the point. He knows his stuff. There’s also something you can’t quite put your finger on. A kind of innocence that puts you at ease. An openness that is integer and authentic. Take a deep breath, relax and allow that smile to emerge on your face ...

  • Free access to the digital version if you buy the physical bookazine

    Everybody who buys the physical book will also get access to the pub (digital) version. At this moment I still have to figure out a good system to allow buyers to get access to the digital version. This is the version for now (it's a BaNaNo action - you'll get it when you have read my bookazine): Buy the physical book and then fill out the comment box below with your name + email + answer to the question: 'What's the third word (in title) on page 12?'. If the word is correct, then I'll mail you the epub-file from the digital version (accessible via iBooks, Nook devices and Google Playbooks tablets like Samsung Galaxy) or the PDF. Whatever you prefer. Enjoy the bookazine.
