Theo Thomas is anyway an inspirer of the highest order. And his ideas "doing something for someone that benefits the other", through its "Strategy with balls" appeals to me a little and I used to develop my own work strategies. "Strategy with balls" is clear, logical and very helpful. The out-of-the-box thinking 'Theo, his humor and his very clear view of things are not only inspiring also sorely needed in this world.
For us at W2 Insight "Strategy with Balls' has become an integral part of our programs. Namely only when managers and teams have the same "Destination", they can actually develop along a chosen Directions. Strategic cooperate so! It is nice to see what the demand; "What can you do for your other colleagues where that colleague benefits from?" positive energy and cooperation brings a team.
I had quite a bit of strategy knowledge in-house, but the method Strategy with balls' in conjunction with the effectiveness of the duo Theo and Suzan show real added value! In the first workshop, I was allowed to know how it works and have it applied to myself. That's something different for customers. And more difficult! Yet really brought me further. Because once again, give a very short answer to "What can you well?" and another distinctive and real. That is the power of this method: get to the real core. This goes beyond the WHY from Simon Sinek. This is a complete and a great base to work further from. A wonderful way to make your brand: whether it is a business, product or person.
The real answers come if you keep asking. Questions, questions, questions. That's what Theo does. He is not satisfied with just any answer, each time asking questions again. In the long run you can not hide more and get "real answers" naturally. Very special, very valuable, very good to take a step forward. The next steps make yourself easier.
As a consultant of Flow Network Waalwijk I saw the lecture twice of "Strategy with balls. Theo inspires you to think about the future and to make a plan on how to create it. The aim is to identify, make a path and systematically and consistently work towards your goal. For many job seekers, this is the way to slowly take control and to become less dependent of an opportunity, which more or less by accident occurs. Which own control gives confidence and strength. With 'strategy with balls "you know when you are on your way, how the trip goes and what you need for that.
We are always busy at work, but thanks Theo and his strategy of balls we now look forward. We now know exactly what we want, for whom and what purpose we now have to do now, soon and later to achieve our goal. That makes the work even more enjoyable!
The exam students of the Business Studies program Green (Helicon MBO Tilburg) have participated in the training "Strategy Balls" Theo Thomas. During the training Theo leave students thinking about their future. Each student has determined its own strategy. The students enthusiasm was great; a confrontational training that really can do something! It is beautiful to see how Theo Thomas with visual and confrontational language gets into action with the students. He put them to think and make them aware of their future strategy. And that future starts NOW. The ball is in the hands of the student.
Creating a strategy by Theo no longer the exclusive for companies but also for job seekers. A fantastic experience for anyone who wants to work to strategically shape his or her career.
First I attended the workshop "Strategy with balls". This workshop makes you think. "Where I want to go with my business?" Eventually, i went for a 'Strategy One' session with Theo. I should have done that earlier. His strategies are clear, informative and effective.
I had a very instructive "Strategy One 'session with Theo. After I had given him a hand at the end of the session, his work paid off. In the elevator I was talking to a business owner who might be meaningful for my future business. Because I knew better what I was looking for after the session, I was asking different questions to the man. I find it very nice that he focuses on doing something for someone else in his strategies. In addition, the A0 poster provides a nice overview of the steps to be taken. Moreover, he asked very good questions so I come better to the core of my 'why'. His tips on effective digital works have also been very valuable to me. Overall a session that I would definitely recommend.
Until recently I associated strategy with complicated, lengthy reports and dull. In "strategy with balls' strategy is " down to earth " witch made it fun, informative and above all useful for you. An absolute must for anyone who wants to advance in his right direction.
After the presentation of Theo in a recent training entrepreneurs I talked to a fellow starting entrepreneur and I found I could reproduce his story with enthusiasm. Theo's story was clear, told catchy, with impact, enthusiasm and a sense of humor: so the message certainly is within! In addition, the method is simple and ready to apply. Highly recommended, those balls ... :-)!
Strategy with balls is a very valuable and effective start (or addition) to a career or mobility project. A must for anyone who want to (or should) change his course and is looking for a clear strategy.
In December 2013 I attended a workshop on strategy with balls and the phrase "YOU LIKE TO DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE BECAUSE IT IS MEANINGFUL FOR THAT SOMEONE" has always stuck with me! I attended the workshop again in December 2014 and of course the phrase came back, but this time there still linger more, the story of the boat. We got a sheet with the explanation of the balls: "what", "who", "why", "someday", "later", "soon" and "now", what makes the workshop lively and gives you more clarity, it is a handhold, you better set your goals when you have everything in sight and mapped out!
