Barnsessions - Create new perspectives

Creating new
perspectives
in 3 days

It's never easy to find time to look ahead for your organization. Your management team and directors are always busy addressing today’s challenges. This hectic life makes it hard to plan for the future of your organization, to think about options and to be more resilient and prepared for unexpected developments.

How do we deal with all the challenges? Are we still on the same page? How can we be profitable and at the same time contribute to a better world? How do we keep our staff motivated and how can we attract new talent?

Purpose driven organizations are stronger, with better motivated people. A clear and inspiring mission easily steers the daily decisions as well as the big changes needed to create a better future.

About BarnSessions

The BarnSessions concept simply revealed itself by seeing what was right in front of me: a love of helping people within organizations to make a more positive impact, a rebuilt barn looking for a way to use it, and the desire to contribute to a better world.

BarnSessions is essentially an unhurried conversation about the future of your organization that unfolds over three days. It takes place in a safe and comfortable setting in which hierarchy disappears and space is created for new perspectives. An environment in which we can slowdown in order to be able to speed up later on.

BarnSessions can be tailored to your needs. Shorter than 3-days is possible, longer too. We can add guests with specific expertise. Do research. Spice things up with entertainment. Tailor the catering to your needs. You can stay for the nights in hotels nearby. Or whatever is on your wish list.

3 Days Program

Day 1

Challenges

In one-on-one conversations with the team members we discover all points of view about the current and future challenges, both business and personal. Furthermore we roughly explore first solutions. Based on the input I then design day 2.

Day 2

Perspectives

This is an opportunity for the whole group to spend time together in the Barn and develop different perspectives for the future. We explore as broadly as we can all potential scenarios and feel the energy each one evokes. I moderate each conversation lightly to facilitate more free flowing discussions, without letting methodology or process dominate. This way we can create the maximum amount of space for everyone’s contributions.

Day 3

Scenarios

During the morning we have individual conversations again. What resonated, what did we love, what did we not? What new ideas arose after a good night sleep? By the end of the day I then share scenarios for the future together with topline consequences for the organization.

About me

My name is Willem van der Schoot. Over the years I enjoyed leading creative agencies like FHV BBDO, LEMZ and B Corp | Havas Lemz. I have had the pleasure of being part of many sessions with companies and organizations in The Netherlands and abroad. I learned how important it was to dig deep to the very essence of the discussion. To then be able to create unique solutions together. Time after time the best recipe appeared to be a relaxed setting in combination with a deadline of a few days. This led to the concept of BarnSessions.

Barnsessions - Willem van der Schoot

Genuine interest in the people behind an organization is what makes the work most rewarding. Especially if this leads to new energy, personal or business breakthroughs and stronger teams.

I believe that good conversations can contribute to a better world. The current crises give us clear signals, we simply cannot consider “business as usual” anymore, we all have a responsibility to use our talents for good.

To me it is very encouraging that creative thinking always gives us new and unexpected possibilities. Sometimes a day or 3 is all you need…

When
good
people
meet,
good
things
happen.

Call, mail or text me. Or even better: come by. The doors of the barn are always open. And if by any chance you play an instrument, please bring it. When good people play together…
