“Happiness is not in your legs.”
-Niek van den Adel 2010, speaker Care

Hospitality in Healthcare Speaker

If there is one concept that Niek feels 100% comfortable talking about, it is healthcare, focusing on positive health (Institute of Positive health): meaning health as the ability to adapt and decide on your own direction, in light of the social, physical and emotional challenges of life.

Doctor and researcher Machteld Huber looked into how to further develop this concept and found out that people experiencing illness find that your health concerns all different aspects of life. Huber calls this broad vision on health, divided over six dimensions’positive health‘. Health should not be described as the ‘absence of sickness‘, but rather by using six dimensions, namely physical functions, mental well-being, the spiritual-existential dimension, quality of life, society participation and daily functioning.

Niek can fully agree with the core values of this new perspective on health and shares with you:

  • In the new concept of health, the human is most important, not the disease.
  • People feel addressed on their strength and not on their weakness.
  • Maybe someone has been diagnosed with a disease, but there is still so much more that (s)he is healthy enough to do.
  • This health can still be strengthened.

Niek combines his personal(hospitable) experiences with positive health. Can you use the explanation and its effect of this definition to engage different types of conversation? What does that require from the patient and the health care provider? Do you want to learn (more) about positive health, narrated by a man who knows everything about the combination of health and positivity? Looking for a speaker healthcare? Please contact us!

Curious about keynote speaker Niek van den Adel?

One day, Niek realizes that he has chosen a profession in which he works with people all day, but never really learned anything about humans during all his education. He decided to catch up and gain the knowledge he missed. He now learns (more) about SCILNLP, psychology and visits every guru, absorbs everything that has to do with personal development. read more about Niek’s personal story.
