Floris de Kort’s company, WorldPay, was undergoing massive transformational change. It had already invested a tremendous amount of time, energy and expense in developing a five-year plan.
“But there’s a difference between having a strategy and having people actually own it,” says Floris. “For that, behavioural change is required. And you don’t achieve it by just snapping your fingers, or by telling people what to do. It takes time, and also requires a bold, fundamental shift in thinking.”
“Through Amaseu transformation journeys, you facilitate this shift. You take people completely out of reference. You spend days without even discussing business topics, and instead promote and practice the behaviour you want to build in the group.”
Floris witnessed this with his own eyes. “Taking my people on transformation journeys made a profound difference to who they are as individuals, how they interact with each other as a team, and how they behave and perform once they are back. It was a life-changing experience.”
“Incidentally, for those of you who like numbers; if we had gone on another 33 such journeys, we would still have spent less than we did on developing our strategy!”
