In a world that is changing rapidly, where organizations are becoming flatter, networks are emerging and we want and need to collaborate more, it seems as if we are embracing new business models and ways of working together, but our behavior is not yet in line with them.

Often we stay in a fight-flight mode while the challenge is to stay firm and agile with each other at the table and to have a constructive dialogue. I like to contribute to be able to do this with a clear head, a warm heart and on a solid foundation. Both at the table and off the table.

Geurt Jan is often the 'trusted advisor' who helps rebuild trust and connect people through constructive dialogues. His specialty is negotiation issues in complex environments and he has trained/coached or advised thousands of people. He is the author of the book Everything Is Negotiation. After his medical exam he worked for about 8 years in the pharmaceutical industry in various management positions. He has been associated with RoutsLaeven since 1996. He has served a wide range of clients and subjects. From FMCG and Retail, engineering firms, contractors, knowledge institutes to various government agencies. Geurt Jan is married and father of 3 adult children. In addition to his work, painting is also a great passion.
