During his study International Business in Maastricht, Energized.org co-founder Diederick Janse made the steps he ‘was supposed to’ make. But – his ‘heart was not in it’. ‘Grow up’, ‘Put yourself over it’, he has long thought. It has changed.
He started the company ‘Realize!’ with after he graduated.
That’s when Diederick discovered Holacracy. He invited Brian Robertson, Holacracy inventor and co-founder of HolacracyOne, to a workshop in the Netherlands and his interest began to grow. Ruben Timmerman also believed in this new operating system and went all-in in January 2013, as the first organization in the Netherlands. Diederick guided Springest in the implementation of Holacracy. Successfully. More organizations followed.
