It analyses the processes by which team flow emerges by exemplifying case studies, and introduces a protocol to spark team flow in professional organizations.

About the authors

Jef J.J. van den Hout (1978) is obsessed with the psychology of flow. Thanks to this obsession, he succeeded in completing his Ph.D. research on the theoretical concept of team flow in December 2016. Mathieu Weggeman was his advisor, and Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, the founder of flow theory, was his opponent in the promotion committee. Currently, Jef is helping members of professional teams to achieve team flow and organizing events on the topic of flow with designers, entrepreneurs, artists, and musicians. He is also an associate researcher at Eindhoven University of Technology, investigating team collaborations, and a guest lecturer for executive master’s degree programs at Aarhus University, Denmark (Positive Psychology) and the Erasmus University of Rotterdam, the Netherlands (EHERO – Erasmus Happiness Economics Research Organization). Jef has previously studied psychology at Tilburg University and Architectural Design Management Systems at Eindhoven University of Technology. 

Orin Davis was granted the first doctorate in Positive Psychology and is a self-actualization engineer who helps people to do and be their best. His consulting focuses on hiring strategies and employee engagement; his coaching work centers on careers (personal branding, career trajectories, and personal/professional development); and his research chiefly addresses flow, creativity, hypnosis, and mentoring. In addition to being the principal investigator of the Quality of Life Laboratory, he is a start-up advisor who helps early-stage companies enhance their value propositions, pitches, culture, and human capital. Dr. Davis also serves as an adjunct professor of business, psychology, entrepreneurship, and creativity. He gives workshops, writes, and lectures avidly on human capital, creativity and innovation, and positive psychology.
