My name is Frits Galle, I was born in 1959. I am married to Ilse and the father of Youp. It is my passion to help people grow and to make organisations more successful. Challenging situations, where no standard solutions are available and creativity is needed, make me thrive.
As a manager of operational, HR and project organisations for Philip Morris International, I have often spearheaded complex international change projects with an impact on processes, structure, people and results. This varied from building up, downscaling, improving effectiveness, implementing technology and closing down organisations. I believe in simplicity and getting employees involved at an early stage. In my current role as an advisor and trainer I focus on the successful mentoring of high-impact development and/or change interventions.
Organizations have been coping for years with the economic crisis. With lowering demands and small margins, it was crucial to be focused and creative. The focus on productivity also had its effect on the employees who often experienced increased workload en work stress. Looking back most senior management teams are satisfied with the way they sailed through the economic storm. Unfortunately the real damage becomes only visible after the storm.
