Wim's free time goes to his family, walking, and reading. Immersed in a fantasy book, he wouldn't even notice his two children demolishing the house.
The better management book keeps his mind occupied as well. Lencioni's 'The Five Dysfunctions of a Team' is a recent discovery.
What motivates Wim is structuring chaos and instigating change. True to his Leitmotiv, 'Change is a muscle that we forget how to flex', helping people move along a change trajectory is what he likes to do most. Seeing the penny finally drop makes this a most rewarding journey for Wim.
The young Wim he'd advise to follow his gut feeling: if something consumes too much energy, end it.
Having had an informal mentor for many years, Wim knows firsthand the growth opportunities through mentoring. The Plant Manager Wim is currently mentoring reaps the benefits of Wim's prior experience as a mentee. And Wim finds pleasure in giving back what he has learned.
