What we work on

CONSULTING – TRAINING – COACHING – INDIVIDUAL ASSISTANCE

Our interventions are tailor-made on the following subjects:

“Open, honest communication is the best foundation for any relationship, but remember that at the end of the day it’s not what you say or what you do, but how you make people feel that matters the most. In order for someone to feel good about a relationship, they must know that the other person truly cares about them, both personally and professionally.”

— Tony Hsieh

When developing and maintaining a corporate culture, it is vital to keep communication as open and honest as possible. Employees that are encouraged to share their concerns and ideas openly enjoy a greater sense of purpose which results in lower turnover and higher employee satisfaction.

The higher the level of honesty the higher the likelihood of creating a strong relationship built on trust. When managers communicate more with their employees, especially about their ambitions, strengths and concerns, they’re more likely to feel valued, resulting in higher levels of engagement. This strongly accounts for the interactions between managers and employees but also prominently between co-workers themselves. Tony Hsieh, CEO of Zappos, famously translates this into one of Zappos’ core values “Build Open and Honest Relationships With Communication”.

During our missions, we strongly focus on the relationships at all levels of the company as well as the internal communication between all the co-workers as well as the communication with all external parties, especially the client communication. The way people communicate  within an organisation, says a lot about their health and wellbeing status. A healthy communication is vital for any organisation’s sustainability.

“”As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.”

– Bill Gates

How many people trust their managers? A recent study by Edelman found that one in three employees don’t trust their employer. Another study by EY found that number to be even lower, with only 46% having trust in their organisation, and 49% in their boss/team. Trust is one of the most important things you need in the workplace. Without it you won’t have the environment you need for an effective feedback culture to grow. So how can you help close the trust gap between employees and managers?

We have developed a Leadership program, based on the challenges of the new organisations and what a manager needs to acquire as skills in order to lead efficient and innovative teams. This program is composed of 10 modules of 2 days training for each module and 10 individual coaching sessions for each participant.

“I came to see, in my time at IBM, that culture isn’t just one aspect of the game, it is the game. In the end, an organization is nothing more than the collective capacity of its people to create value.”

– Louis Gerstner, IBM

Culture affects every aspect of a company, from the public’s perception of the brand to the employees’ job satisfaction. In a fast moving worl, it’s important that the corporate culture is adaptable and open to improvement – which starts with being able to articulate just what kind of culture your company has.

While nexer two cultures are exactly the same, there are defining characteristics that tend to place organizational cultures into different categories or types. Often, the industry of a company will dictate its culture to some degree, but that doesn’t mean that culture can’t be changed. Thankfully, culture is not static, but rather evolving.

The company culture that has the most wellbeing benefits for employees is the « Team-first » corporate culture. Companies that go for this type, hire for culture fit first, skills and experience being only second on the list of criterias for recruitment.
