our workshops and interventions are
custom designed to your question.

these are the cornerstones
that define the way we work:

  • Collective intelligence is key
    All too often, teams work sub-optimally, leaving team member knowledge untapped.
  • We need sustainable information
    Allowing each member to contribute and speak out is a more sustainable business model.
  • Leaders don't have all the answers
    Their succes is dependent on hearing all voices in the room.
  • People naturally want to contribute
    This is a natural process. People want to be part of something bigger and take ownership.
  • What you can't visualise, you can't understand"
    Visualizing the complex and adaptive relations of the world we live in is a key to smart solutions.
  • Getting a perspective on perspectives
    Most problems have become so complex that we believe that the single right answer to a complex problem is an illusion. We need collective intelligence to get a firm grasp on what reality actually is. Our interventions and workshops are therefore designed to visualize a wide array of perspectives on reality.
  • Getting guidance by principles
    When perspectives open and (limiting) beliefs are acknowledged, new space unfolds to make the desired movement. In our experience it is crucial that in this new and open territory you devise a smart way to navigate. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by formulating Simple Guiding Principles or devising a new powerful metaphor.
  • Getting from one place to another
    Most of the questions we receive when we are invited to work with leaders, teams and organizations are about getting from one place, state or position to another. They are about change, transition or progress. They are about movement metaphors. Individuals and teams want to: digg into their dynamics get out of a conflict deepen relations move towards an ambitious goal move away from an old situation stop with inhibiting habits pick up on new trends go up the career ladder get out of the dark etc... So we design workshops and interventions that are able to visualize movement.
  • What you should know about us
    We invite mind, belly and body intelligence to get the best results We hold space for emotions that unfold We pendulate between comfort and discomfort to get beyond what you allready know We don't wear suits
  • Metaphors@work
    Metaphors have a way of holding the most truth in the least space... Metaphors We Live By (George Lakoff & Mark Johnson) defines metaphors in the most graceful way: “The essence of metaphor is understanding and experiencing one kind of thing in terms of another.” And that is exacly why we love to work with your metaphors for life, work and leadership. Because most of our thought processes are unconscious, invisible and seldomly put into words, metaphors are a unique tool to show us the full perspective into how someone thinks, feels and experiences their world. Understanding our own metaphors and unravelling each others metaphors, really helps us in getting to know the perspective on reality of others in our team, familiy and organization. Metaphors are, when properly used, extremely powerful tools for getting a perspective on perspectives and to remedy 'stuck states'.
  • It is owned by Hans Hoegaerts
    Yeah, that's me. I started out like most people in an employee trajectory. A man with a mission in HR. Several plot twists later in my story, I find myself doing the things I really, really love. Things that are so interconnected to my soul that I can't imagine doing something else. I am ever grateful to life, mentors and friends for how they devised an intricate way to get me up to this point. By giving feedback, by opening and closing doors, by being honest and by soundboarding with me they helped me find my spot in life. I am ever grateful that I still can count on them for the road ahead. By doing what I'm primed to do, I hope I can give back what I have been given.

  • It was founded in 2013
    This unavoidable event is marked in my journal as; 'This is really happening...'. The brand name and its services emerged from my own company (Ont/moet bvba, founded in 2011) and my work in it as an independant HR contractor. It is still the convergence point of my strenghts, passions and obsessions. The brand is a perfect blend of visual language, transformation, progression and systemic work.
