Experience & Values
Alain Volz M.Sc. (1969) - founder and director of ATMA - has studied Business Administration and Organisational Psychology. He started his career with Royal Dutch Ahold and has worked with IPMMC and TC&O. For 10 years Alain has been working with Twynstra Gudde Consultants and Managers as senior consultant Human Talent & Change Management. He is co-founder of the Center for Human Emergence in the Netherlands (CHE), a former member of the CHE alignment circle and founding director of CHE School of Synnervation.
Alain is expert in value based HR strategies, competency based HR systems, leadership development and human behavior in change processes. He uses an integral perspective in his work as change facilitator and Synnervator. His major challenge is to support organisations in discovering and enabling talent to contribute to sustainable economic performance. In doing so he strives for realizing strategy by connecting people.
Alain has written several books and articles on competency based HR, knowledge management and leadership development. He is guest teacher at the University of Amsterdam and the Radboud University Nijmegen. He currently focusses on leadership, complex collaboration (meshworking) and social technologies.
Alain is a facilitator of individual and collective growth. It is his personal belief that every human being is unique. By discovering our own unicity we can create unity. In our heart we all want to be acknowledged as an unique individual. In our being we all want to contribute to the good of the whole. He translates this belief in effectiveness of teams, high performance of individuals and resilience in organisations. Alain also facilitates collaboration processes between public and private partners dealing with complex issues (Meshworking).
Every person is a leader and leadership is a process of authenticity and relationship. Connecting to our inner Self enables us to really connect with others. This connection with others creates both creativity and effectiveness. Organisations can become more resilient and more efficient by facilitating these processes of change.
Individual and collective consciousness and involvement are needed to be effective in facing today's complexity and to be sustainable in solving tomorrow's questions. Leadership development, sustainability, dealing with complexity and (cross company)collaboration processes are key elements in the projects Alain is involved in.
