People must have the ability to set their own goals and stakes aside and listen and really try to understand the other’s point of view


03 - Juni 2018

This interview with Robert Otto (member of the Executive Board of Achmea) is the third of a new series initiated by RibbonWood consultancy. It is not about what agile is. Our series is about the "why" of major transformations and its leader's experiences. With lessons learned on strategy implementation, change & transformation and leadership. These are real change stories. And we put our RibbonWood change management framework "10s" to the test. You can read the full interview and on LinkedIN. It is worth your time.

Here are some of Robert's quotes:

  • Imagine the use of combined data. Scale has a different meaning in the digital world! 
  • If we don’t change, some day another company will emerge and conquer the marketplace at the blink of an eye.
  • People must have the ability to set their own goals and stakes aside and listen and really try to understand the other’s point of view.
  • Generally speaking I believe in making choices and sticking to that choice.
  • I do not appreciate it when they do so with one single version of the truth, I always want to see a combined approach.
  • If you really delegate work to people they might surprise you, since they come up with different solutions.
  • It is okay to make mistakes, but I like to discover them fast.
