Jump Movement offers simple and practical change management strategies that help employees move through change quickly by staying focused on the end goal, and creating movement towards results. This workshop will guide participants through the structure of a “jump conversation”, which can be taken back for use in your own organization or team. About the Presenter: Ineke Hurkmans is an organizational development expert, and international speaker from the Netherlands. In her 15 years of OD management experience, she discovered that conventional change-management and organizational development methods often failed to lead to lasting change. That’s why she developed the Jump Movement method to harness people’s intrinsic motivation and drive, which leads them to implement lasting change themselves.
