For the past 4 years, Willemijn Dijk has been a dedicated Agile (HR) coach, primarily focused on guiding public sector organizations through their agile transformations. Her coaching experience spans individual, team and organizational levels.
With a background in HR, Willemijn possesses leadership and organizational skills. During her time as an HR professional, she was first introduced to Agile principles and became convinced of their fundamental importance for a company's survival.
Drawing from her experience in the public sector, Willemijn observes that while commercial organizations naturally embrace agility, the public sector faces a growing challenge in this regard. Transforming traditionally rigid public institutions involves navigating a complex landscape characterized by deep-rooted conservatism. This often leads to resistance to innovation, the need to shed old habits, and the necessity of embracing a more inclusive Agile culture.
One particularly intricate aspect is the increasing generational gap in the workplace. In her engaging workshop, Willemijn will address this issue and offer practical strategies to bridge this divide. She will foster an inclusive Agile environment where different generations collaborate seamlessly.
