Develop the skills and mindset to build a context in which employees themselves are the change and drive innovation
Hifluence studies all techniques published worldwide in the field of organizational structure, culture change and operations. For example, we collaborate with the Antwerp Management School. We do not believe in imposing one specific system or methodology, no dogma’s at Hifluence. We help you build the organization you need.
Going on a journey with Hifluence to creating your own “people-first” organization.
Everything is first tested in practice. Our keynotes and training courses deliver the essence of what we have achieved with extraordinary results. Our objective is that participants are “touched” in heart & mind and return home with concrete tools & techniques that they can start working with immediately.

Don’t let go, but hold differently
From “very inspiring” to “a little unusual” to “raw and emotional”. This keynote leaves no one unmoved. For two hours, Nick Van Langendonck leads the entire room outside of its comfort zone of typical leadership, gives one practical handle after the other and points out to everyone things that we are especially allowed to unlearn.
The power of modular organizational structures
In collaboration with Jan Verelst – professor and dean of the Department of Management Information Systems at the University of Antwerp and Antwerp Management School – Hifluence leads the way in applying the principles of normalized (decentrally organized) systems to organizations. In human language: this 60-minute session explains how to break down an organization to the lowest level of components and rebuild it in a fluent and collaborative future-proof structure.
12 crucial questions for leaders of tomorrow
This 60-minute keynote is specifically geared towards leaders who advocate transformation and innovation and wish to drive this change within their own companies. Based on twelve essential questions, personal experiences and life stories, Nick Van Langendonck explains how to write a manifesto for your own personal transformation, which is an essential prerequisite for any successful transformation.
Training for leaders
The transformation of any organization starts with the leaders.
With this guide you create the framework within which change can develop. What are your leadership preferences, blind spots and fears? Where are your personal limits and how far are you willing to go? Which leadership roles will you take up and which ones will you pass on?
Starting up a transformation is one thing, delivering on the promise is a completely different ball game.
Preparing the organisation for transformation
“Look before you leap” Nothing as destructive as hastily starting a transformation. During this training you will learn how to create trust and support as a leader for an upcoming change.
How to start, where and how long to experiment, realizing where standardization kicks-in and what you can learn from resistance to change.
Training on meeting and decision processes
Basic techniques in self-management
In this session participants learn very concretely and hands-on about how to equip teams for autonomy, trust and freedom. Which frameworks are necessary to divide decision-making powers? How to cultivate transparency and reliability in a team? What value and challenges more autonomy brings for the personal development of employees. Finally, what dangers and misunderstandings there are about self-steering and how to deal with them. Employees who go through this process return to their respective organizations inspired and with renewed energy.
Team consultation on steroids
Filling-up time with too many and unproductive meetings is a disease of our time. Nevertheless, a team meeting can be just as powerful a moment to clear the head, connect around the higher purpose, share information and identify obstacles that hold back the team.
During a half-day workshop, get yourself to grips with the process of decision making and consultation which guarantees to boost productivity in any type of organization.
The success of autonomous teams
Autonomous cooperation without a clear set of boundaries does not work. It is necessary that everyone has insight into the expectations of the team, how they will at least meet the expectations and how to best measure and lead for performance. There is a need for clear objectives set at individual and team level that are specific, challenging and achievable and fit the set of non-negotiable rules at play. Such autonomous teams have tight structures that define specific areas of influence, meeting practices and effective decision-making processes. This course develops the practical techniques and tools to bring teams to optimal autonomy, responsibility & results.
Modularity in organizations
The program is part of the Master of Enterprise IT Architecture Program at the Antwerp Management School. It is a deep dive into the theory of modular organizational structures and the relevant cases that show that modularity and the theory of normalized systems actually solve the fundamental problems of traditional organizational structures.
Training on human-centric work, purpose and impact
Collaboration on and from purpose
Having a sense of meaning in the work itself or in its output has a significant impact on the effectiveness of a person and his team. The meaning of the work is personal and can vary: financial security, family support, helping the team or self-expression. In this training you will learn what a purpose really is – it is much more than a mission – how to “listen” to the purpose of a team and how to use it as a compass and key decision-making tool for every decision in the organization.
Peace-of-mind on the workfloor
Of the five main dynamics of effective teams that researchers identified, psychological safety is by far the most important. Individuals in teams with higher psychological safety are less likely to leave the organization, are more likely to harness the power of different ideas from their teammates, generate more revenue and are often twice as effective. Use this training to develop the ability to promote psychological safety in a team.
Training on 21st century skills
Design Thinking Drill
Design Thinking is an intensive, structured innovation cycle that originated at Google Ventures. The goal of this training is to immerse you in the world of your client or user and gain a full understanding of their needs, problems, habits, frustrations and tasks. From the first minute you will learn the techniques by applying them! Show up with the enthousiastic, curious and creative child inside you!
Master your productivity
Getting the work planned and done is a crucial skill for any employee. Nobody tells you what to do anymore. You give shape to your own life. That does not mean that the abundance of tasks disappears. On the contrary. With this half-day training, you develop a work-life productivity approach that puts things in order. You learn how to set priorities and be productive. You free your mind for ideas, not for keeping track of information. This is the basis for better performance, creativity and innovation.
Honest and challenging feedback in a psychologically safe context
Dynamic strategy execution
Hard recruitment with a heart
This Hifluence training was very profound, intensive and confronting. It helped us as a team to to create an appropriate structure and work better together.
