Our approach (Top)

We use show people how to successfully take up the challenges of a changing world.

Organizations and companies need collaborators and team members with a strong sense of responsibility, a greater facility to adapt, an attitude that prizes team-building, synergy and cooperation, with plenty of personal initiative, creativity, assertiveness and perseverance. They should also have a self-motivated desire to learn, to grow and to constantly improve.

That's a tall order. Recognizing that not all people respond to the same motivational criteria, we specialize in "heuristic learning". We recognize that people respond quicker, more directly and more completely to information of personal concern, and so we communicate ideas on the need to creatively self-empower to reflect one of Nature's most important leadership principles:: altruistic self-interest .

Our programs lead participants to explore their creative potential as a "value adding" process. We stimulate them to act by linking personal interests to organizational need. In simple words, we demystify wiifm - the what's in it for me question. Because one's best benefits all, we teach the two conditions that stimulate growth can do and want to -. i.e. the "know how" and the "care why".

*Heuristic learning is activity based and thus it shortens the learning curve.

In order to assure the success of our mandates, we manage the 5 facets in a wholistic approach:

  • We establish exact client needs and a visionary plan ;
  • We encourage the creative principles championed in Nature by introducing them as various learning experiences;
  • We stimulate people to discover opportunities to innovate and to improve by questioning existing roles, ideas, procedures and systems ;
  • We identify limits to creative motivation and teamwork and propose ways to unleash human potential by helping clients implant conditions that facilitate adopting creativity's best practices and optimal behaviors ;
  • We manage the whole process : the expectations, the events and themes, the training and the results.
    Our programs are accredited by "Emploie Québec" for income tax purposes
    and have been animated in various forms for every educational strata.
