‘Outside the box there is a much bigger world.’
– David Wielandt
David Wielandt. Innovative. Unconventional. People-oriented. Analytical.
My drive? I want to help organisations and the people within those organisations to become better at what they do. So that they can exceed the expectations of their employees and their customers.
Because sometimes an organisation doesn’t run as it should, your customers aren’t necessarily ones you like, or your company takes up too much time and energy. Then I would like to help you on your way again, to make your organisation successful. And, in my opinion, you can achieve that more easily if your employees feel that they are contributing to a larger whole. That they matter.
Very important then is: sharing your successes with each other. As a company, you are not there to win but to continue to exist. It is an infinite game. Be successful, and stay successful. To create that continuity, you must ensure a culture of innovation and change so that then, as a company, you always remain good at what you do. My motto is: “Outside the box there is a much greater world”.
Improvement, change & innovation
I embrace improvement, change and innovation. An unconventional upbringing by hippie parents in Ibiza, my time in the military service and my study time helped shape who I am, and stimulated my creativity and out-of-the-box thinking. My background, combined with my analytical skills, organisational capacities and a keen eye for technology, have ensured that I am able to come up with innovative solutions.
For an organisation, I first want to understand everything well, go through the entire process, so that I can help my client better. I stand for a personal approach and customised service, because every organisation has different values and needs. In principle, I want to help anyone I can. From a single person, to a large company. As long as I can have an impact: as long as the changes I make matter.
A new generation
I am an all-rounder; I focus on several different things. iInnovate SOM stands for Service, Operations and Management. Take me on and I’ll run from A to Z throughout your entire business process to be able to propose improvements. I thoroughly look at every aspect in the field of service, operations and management and ask the people in your organisation for their feedback.
At various companies around the world, such as Starwood, Marriott, Hilton and Apple, I have set up, reorganised and implemented service systems, operational processes and management structures. I have gained a lot of experience in working with and leading new generations such as the millennials, who demand a different approach than the generations before them.
I am convinced that personal development is the key to motivating your employees, and ultimately achieving your goals. In my consultancy and coaching processes, I also focus primarily on competence-oriented leadership, change management and process improvement in order to achieve the desired results.
