Why should you join?

To cope with its more and more volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) reality, your organization needs people at every level to advance their human growth: contribute to more complex and wider business challenges

Your traditional hierarchical organization does not help enough to advance human growth. With great regularity, it - limits individual initiative by imposing detailed controls and punishing mistakes - constrains cooperation across departmental silos - looks for short term simplistic trade-off between investments in human growth and business performance: then it loses on both sides!

But you want to contribute more to the human growth of your coworkers. Are you ready to start with yourself?

We designed 5 years ago programs to help leaders positively impact the human growth of coworkers. This is a VUCA challenge: leaders must start with themselves!

Dominique Fagnoule, fagnoule CIO BNP Paribas Personal Finance (from 2009 to 2013) : “They challenged me and my team to improve mutual feedback, trust, delegation and focus on rapid results. With their help, we became a performing team progressing our IT transformation beyond planned targets.”

Our experience delivering these programs led us to major insights. The three crucial success factors to achieve human growth are:

  • to become aware of systemic behaviors to initiate actions with a lasting impact
  • to create and maintain a mutual support group within their own work environment
  • to approach human growth and long-term business performance as the inseparable faces of the same coin

You fill find here the description of our next inter-company development group, designed around these success factors: “Boost human growth and then business results”. This unique program will help you to reach a more rewarding work experience :

  • develop into an example of human growth: asking for feedback and using it, giving trust, providing coaching and support,…
  • sustain a valued impact on your coworker’s human growth: helping to clear away confusion and powerlessness, clarifying how to boost business results with human growth

Antonio Cano, cano COO Ageas (CEO AG Insurance from 2009 to 2015) : “As a participant in the first inter-company development group led by Serge, I became much more aware of the impact my behavior had on my colleagues and I did better adjust my behavior to the different and changing needs of the real-life business environment. This made me a wiser manager and helped me to contribute to the development of AG Insurance, already the Belgian market leader, into an even stronger performing organization.”
