“It’s interesting to see how we can think beyond limitations”

“What stuck with me was how to get out of the default mode, to get more inspired. I’m also inspired to watch more stuff I normally reject because it feels like a waste of time, I can learn from that and even enjoy it if I change perspectives.”

“The program gave me the capability of going beyond research and constantly raise new questions and new possibilities”

“One of the changes I observed is that
I became more observant to things around me.”

“Two years ago I read a book that really opened my mind: Telling about society” by Howard S Becker. It inspired me on different ways to interpret society. For a “conservative” sociologist like me it was an amazing discovery. We can interpret the dynamics of our social environment with different tools beyond the formal academic instruction. The course reinforces this idea on me: it is possible to collect a lot of insights from different disruptive sources to interpret reality and create new solutions, not only from the linear and rational education.

Like, art, philosophy, gaming, technology and philosophy. I appreciated how this section was not making in any way a distinction between what might be considered “high” and “low” sources of inspiration.”

“The program showed it is possible to explore and start the journey towards developing an adaptable mindset by simply widening our horizons and opening up to new, untapped inputs.”

possibilities in the world

Our way of thinking and looking at possibilities can bring so much options to life. This program has changed my way of thinking. First I thought in problems and got frustrated. Stress increased and I panicked. Through this program I got inspired to no longer think in problems but in possibilities. Flexibility gives more movement in the mindset and this gives more inspiration to continue on.

“Informed, provocative, and someone who lives outside the box, Robert Overweg understands the impact of technology like few others….”

My daily job is to drive innovation in corporates, and to me that is all about bringing new perspectives. Robert is a master in just doing that. He uses inspiring, fun examples that are touching and tickling at the same time. He has found an unique way to connect his artistic background to this techy world we are living in. The only way to survive in this fast paced world, is to be able to adapt constantly. Robert's program about the adaptable mindset is a great way to get surprised and inspired!

Despite all progress there’s still little wisdom in business. We pay little attention to the world of the arts, philosophy, science or design. The Adaptable mindset addresses this gap and disconnect in a playful, inspiring and activating way. It will broaden your perspective, change your mind and behavior.
