Personal pitch

Geboren en getogen in Venlo in een zeer internationale familie, ben ik gefascineerd door het vinden van oplossingen en motiveren van mensen in organisaties. Als slimme en creatieve doorzetter ga ik door waar anderen stoppen en creëer ik mogelijkheden die anderen niet meteen zien. Leergierig en nieuwsgierig als ik ben, ben ik begonnen in de internationale dienstverlening, om daarna mijn focus te verleggen naar corporate HR-IT-rollen. Hier heb ik al veel bedrijfskundige ervaring met HR verbeterprocessen opgedaan. Deze veelzijdige kennis en ervaring wil ik nu inzetten in een rol waarin ik mijn innovatieve en creatieve kwaliteiten kan inzetten om oplossingen en verbeteringen te creëren waar ik de organisatie en klant mee kan verrassen. In mijn vrije tijd sport ik veel: Milon en yoga. Ook doe ik vrijwilligerswerk in een filmhuis. Dus ik zie graag een film, documentaire, of theatervoorstelling. En als er nog tijd overblijft lees ik graag in het Engels en Nederlands. Ik houd van een gezonde uitdaging.

The ideal culture for them

The ideal work environment for Hanneke Gelissen is one that gives everyone freedom to attain objectives as they like. She believes basic guidelines should suffice, and each person should be responsible for their behavior and contribution to the organization.

How they learn new skills and concepts

To learn new concepts, Hanneke Gelissen needs concrete evidence. She develops skills gradually, by accumulating practical experience. Theoretical and abstract concepts are often foreign to her, and contribute little to her progress because she will have a hard time applying them in the context of her job. She masters new skills through practice and repetition.

Hanneke Gelissen's spontaneous nature leads her to learn by testing out concepts and techniques herself. She finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop her understanding through failure, and then try again. She can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
