sometimes you can use some help getting to the next level

You like your business. You know your business. You have the expertise you need. Sometimes you need a partner in getting things done on the next level in a complex environment.
You are not looking for a consultant who knows exactly what you have to do. You need somebody who understands you. Somebody who, just like you, believes that success is so much more than making profit or fulfilling a formal role. It means adding true value. Value realized by effectively connecting people, ideas and interests. That's why Walk the Talk is here, it's our purpose. We sort out, align and actually get these things done.

guided by principles

Each situation asks for a specific approach. There are hardly any blue prints at hand when it comes to complex matters. Being dogmatic makes you overlook things, ignore signals and miss opportunities. But concerning beliefs & behavior there are principles Dinand is guided by. Some examples on selected topics.

Success is much more than making profit. Adding real value is what it is about, regardless of your position in the value chain.

Leave everything you touch in the world a little bit better behind  than it was.

Set preconditions and facilitate, but also, intervene, direct, and exert influence. Such personal interventions require self-knowledge and an active interest in other people. Detect pattern breaks, but create them as well: momentum!

Manager’s ‘spreadsheet fetishism’ kills the soul and drive of professionals. Make it possible for them to thrive and then get out of the way.

‘Do what you gotta do’

‘Walk your talk’

‘It’s not about you, connect others’

‘Succeed fast, but fail even faster’

 ‘I don’t like that man, I’m going get to know him better’ (Abraham Lincoln)

What makes people tick? No idea! Wouldn’t you be insulted by ‘motivational’ programs?! Respect your people, create opportunity for people to motivate themselves by what they’re doing. Listen & support. But do challenge.

team up

Building and leading a team with the best of your people is what Dinand prefers. Only add from the outside what's really lacking or needed to create momentum.

Dinand is the core of Walk the Talk. He has directed (international) projects for all organizations mentioned in the client lists.
Together with client Air Traffic Control he was awarded with 2nd place in the national Project of the Year Benchmark initiated by ATOS Trend Institute: “The project manager as entrepreneur”.
