WHAT WE DO
We believe that meaningful innovation is all about people creating value through the implementation of new ideas. Therefore we assist organisations to optimally deal with this people dimension of innovation. No rigid theories or heavy concepts but proven capabilities to bring innovation to life in the heads, hearts and hands of the people who have to make it work.
Discover your Creative Potential
Congaz is a preferred FourSight® partner
While every human is hard-wired to think creatively, we all do it differently. So collaborating can be hard—or rewarding—depending on your level of awareness. The FourSight® Thinking Profile is a problem-solving assessment, based on 10 years of research, that reveals your personal preference for each phase of the creative thinking process that leads to innovation.
Those who understand thinking preferences can learn to leverage personal differences to unlock a group’s ability to solve problems, collaborate and achieve breakthrough results.
I handle challenging and complex issues in an open minded way thereby trying to reconciliate different points of view. I’m direct, sharp and sometimes use an unexpected approach. I’m fascinated by the sparkles in the eyes of people when everything comes together, individual strengths and assets, working together, making a shared purpose come true. I have a large field of interest and no matter how small or large, “young” or existing “for ever” an organization is, everyone is involved in making the evolving purpose realize itself.
Ingrid De Clercq
I have the wonderment of a child, for man and nature. I value freedom and love adventure, am curious, open minded and eager to learn. I am deeply interested in people, how they function, why they do what they do. I am inquisitive and like to get to the essence of a situation, so I will ask a zillion questions and listen carefully to all that is said (and not said ;-).
I can be diplomatic but also impatient with superficiality, and I quickly see through nonsense. I have an eye for look & feel and (almost always) a big smile. I love to energize a group and guide them to new insights. And then I will patiently hammer on the nail to make sure an innovative approach is also installed.
I love bringing my experience with startups to the bigger companies and vice versa. As such, practices for building entrepreneurial teams proved also applicable when coaching intrapreneurial projects. And personally having experienced the benefits of a strong innovative culture makes me a fierce advocate for it.
With a strong preference for ideation and implementation, and gifted with a focused brain to keep the long term end goal in mind , I also like/ need the ‘sparkle in the eye’ of someone or a team motivated to the next step. I really enjoy finding the underlying connections between the different worlds/issues at stake. So I am interested to understand how entrepreneurs build their businesses, how corporates align their mission and values , how eco-systems function, how teachers set up learning events for teens, how volunteers show dedication and how my children challenge my (old-fashioned) habits …
I am an ideator & developer. I worked with HR companies, production factories, financial institutes, etc. as well as with street kids in Africa and the Middle East and people in poverty in my own country. As a seasoned trainer & facilitator I try to move people as well as processes, products and services, and bring them to another level. Always with a few core elements in mind: meaning, empowerment and creative thinking. I have a special interest for storytelling because I believe stories connect, switch paradigms and create heroes.
We work for large and middle-sized businesses, start-ups and social profits.
