GODELIEVE SPAAS (b. 1961)
My skills lie in my ability to invent, rearrange, suggest and create, drawing on the different worlds I have moved in as a dancer, a social scientist and an organizational developer. As an insider in the worlds of art, science and entrepreneurship, I am able to combine these worlds, gathering inspiration, concepts and knowledge from each and transposing them from one realm to the other, and to pave the way for others do the same.
I seek to operate beyond the assumption that sustainability impairs the profitability of organizations. If we dig deep enough and are creative enough, we can enter a space where added value is created through interdependence. What stories there are to be found where the three (ecology, society, economy) all benefit from and interact seamlessly with each other. My aim is to increase diversity in organizational and entrepreneurial models and realities with a view to the development of a fairer, more sustainable and robust entrepreneurial space.
By listening to as yet unheard stories and walking untrodden paths, we allow interdependent systems to reveal themselves, to be identified and interpreted and to become a platform for action in everyday organizational reality. Intertwining the worlds of understanding, creation and implementation fosters a greater awareness of what is possible and enables specific companies, non-governmental organizations and governments alike to take concrete steps in the field of organisational development.
