  • Deep Democracy – On the wisdom of the minority, thorough decision-making and determination
  • Jam Cultures – Diversity and Inclusion – A Performance with Music & Stories

Based on her travels, Jitske Kramer takes her audience on a fascinating mental excursion. She conceives of an organization as a living entity, with village squares and town halls (meeting rooms), alleys and taverns where the real dialogue takes place (smoking areas and coffee corners). With chiefs (executives), elders (supervisors), hunters (sales), magicians (IT, HR, change managers, consultants) and gatherers (the fee earners).

She uses these anthropological insights to create and sustain strong and healthy work environments. Jitske Kramer shows how we can improve our mutual relationships so that we become smarter as a group and better at what we think and do. Team intelligence instead of group stupidity is her claim.
