I attended the Executive Programme ‘Executing Strategy for Result’ in March at the London Business School. Six days of intensive and interactive learning with participants from around the world: from Saudi Arabia to Canada, Kenya to France. There was a mix of lectures, case studies, guest speakers and experiments; all aspects of corporate strategy are covered: How do you formulate a comprehensible strategy? How do you ensure that scarce resources are focused on the right priorities? And how do you embed a strategy in the organisation in such a way that colleagues understand and embrace it? It’s great to apply this at our organisation with other managerial colleagues at Nederlandse Loterij.
Don’t lose sight of what matters
I always advise my team: don’t just focus on professional development. I have learned at least as much at training sessions where I got to know myself better: What drives me? Why do I do things the way I do? Which types of people do I naturally click with, which do I prefer to avoid, and why? And what can I learn from that?
At Nederlandse Loterij, we all have access to a generous annual personal training budget. In my experience, Nederlandse Loterij is unique in terms of both budget and freedom of approach. You are at the helm of your own development, facilitated by Nederlandse Loterij.
All the unique talents of our colleagues come together in various teams. In this way, we work together on a happy, healthy and sporty Netherlands. Want to know who’s on your team?Read our stories
