Cyriel Kortleven, born in 1975, grew up in Zutendaal (Flemish Limburg). His life and career are dedicated to creativity and innovation. People in a creative flow are the most productive and enjoyable colleagues. That’s something that every manager and leader knows. But how do you get your people in that mindset? Cyriel explores this challenge as a management trainee, office manager and business consultant. And he gives the answer as a speaker & author. The creative potential of people awakens.

‘The creative power is the most important element of a company or organisation.’ claims Cyriel. ‘Invest in the potential of your people and your organisation will flourish. And it’s also better for you as an individual and the whole society because:

* Problems are transformed into opportunities
* Threats are transformed into chances
* ‘Yes but …’ is transformed to ‘Yes and …’
* A passive reaction is transformed into an active experiment
