Welcome to "heuristic training" in Costa Rica  (Top)

Today's business climate - "change at the speed of thought" - has created a need for rapid-response teams who will come together quickly and for shorter timeframes. Consider then, how team building and the self-empowerment needed to participate effectively in teams are more than just theoretical ideas.

This one week agenda examines how people from different cultures, backgrounds and mindsets can come together and « gel » into creative and effective teams.

The program is an adventure in learning which offers participants a fascinating opportunity to explore the creative self-empowerment process. The itinerary will expose them to themes that will demystify why "altruistic self-interest" is Nature's rule for "building high performance teams". 

From the Greek for "self-discovery", heuristic learning uses a simple formula to shorten the learning curve:

[Left-brain knowledge] + [Right-brain experience] = [Whole-brain "empowerment"]. 

Our training program includes logical syntheses that explain how people can develop their « creative capital » in a team context : i.e. Self-organization in groups, motivated creativity and innovation, communication, personal power and self-actualization.

The week will stimulate participants to explore team-building with activities, seminars and exercises and an exciting agenda of adventures where they will forge strong bonds. The curriculum shares valuable knowledge and important tools which show how to creatively manage both people and projects.

Benefiting from a veritable eco-paradise, a democratic island of peace, participants tour Costa Rica and explore a rainforest jungle, a cloudforest, a montane forest and a tropical mixed forest, the jungle canopy, a crocodile-filled rio, a saltwater mangrove and Pacific coast beaches. 

Groups can become empowered teams in only 1 week

General Objectives of the Training Week (Top)

This team-building week is designed so the participants gain an important understanding of themselves and clear insights into their creative expression. They will explore the concept of relationships in "self-organizing teams" and learn how individuals can organize for high efficiency and performance.

The group will see how neural mindsets limit perception and learn what they can do about it. They will explore ideas like interdependency and synergy in group dynamics and how to communicate and work more effectively and creatively with others. They will acquire an empowering selection of tools, syntheses and exercises.

This training week will help participants &endash;

  • Assess their views & reactions to change ;
  • Complete a personal "journal", a team vision and an action plan ;

Gestion Consult-IIDC Management Inc. heuristic training programs help participants enhance their capacity to think creatively and strategically while demystifying Nature's management rule to be - "altruistic self-interest".

We supply tools and opportunities to explore important learning with direct mind-shaping experience.

We have several educational itineraries of great interest to leaders, managers, entrepreneurs, professionals, independent workers, project and management teams and persons interested in human potential and growth. Our heuristic training adventures (self-discovery) facilitate creative self-empowerment and personal vision. By organizing a theme based agenda in completely "out of the box" locations, we bypass participants' familiar biases and paradigms to shorten the learning curve.

Heuristic training adventures allow participants to reach deeper understandings, at their own rate, by generating the appropriate psycho-spiritual framework to benefit from 4 important learning elements: An ideal environment, stimulating adventures, a fascinating curriculum of logical syntheses and direct experience with subjective emotional commitment.

Training in natural settings and travel to international locations are considered to be incentives and rewards by most people. Powerful and positive anticipation is felt when we consider a "tropical getaway" and that energy can be focused into a motivating force. That force contained in a program where participants learn how to increase their « creative capital », their « client capital » or learn how to become a « high performance team ».

A beautiful and exotic site automatically creates wonder and opens the mind so it is receptive to new information and ready for "deep learning". Also, the need to adapt to a foreign culture tends to increase group exchanges and info-sharing, while shared adventures supply emotional immediacy and "team spirit". Accomplishment makes remembering lessons learned more pleasant, easier and thereby more likely to be recalled to be used.
