The Complexity, Consciousness and Management program was strongly recommended by managers for whom I have deep respect, both for their leadership and for their vision, so I had very high expectations when I enrolled.
In fact, those managers had promised that this program would somehow put my views and my beliefs about a “bunch of things” into perspective.
Promise made, promise kept. You leave this program feeling like a new person, with a new way of seeing yourself and others. This program is a must for any manager who is seeking a source of self-renewal.

The Complexity, Consciousness and Management program provides an integrated approach to the field of management. The course content is focused on the diverse aspects of human relationships in the workplace and is based on the most recent advances and latest research on the issue.
Everything is brought together by experts who don’t hesitate to point out our assumptions, who provide pertinent scenarios, and above all, who suggest daily exercises that — as I can attest — make all the difference. I would definitely recommend this course to anyone who is really committed to becoming a better leader.

I was looking for a different kind of leadership program — one that was innovative, transformational, engaging and challenging. I got what I was after. The training on mental models, the role of emotions in management and the intelligence of the heart all had a big impact on me, my way of thinking and my behaviour.
The practice of mindfulness, though it requires great deal of discipline, is very rewarding and provides deep insights. The program is rigorous, well structured and based on recent scientific research. The instructors are deeply human, warm, and sensitive — and they are experts in adult education.
They create an outstanding environment for participation. It’s a program of the highest quality!

In order to adjust to today’s hectic workplace where everything happens so fast, we too often focus on changing how we do things (our savoir-faire) as the main solution to various management or organizational problems. We forget that the success of a business is also based on its leaders’ fundamental life skills — knowing how to be (our savoir-être).
The Complexity, Consciousness and Management program highlights the importance of creating a balance between these types of knowledge. This course should be required training for all managers and professionals who influence our organizations. It helps us to see and interpret things and events differently — and to create differently.
It gives you hope! This course in a masterpiece in the world of education!

Today's managers must be well equipped if they hope to effectively meet all the challenges they face while maintaining a reasonable balance. How should we equip ourselves? Continuing education, seminars, refresher courses, internships, mentoring — there are plenty of options.
My choice: the Complexity, Consciousness and Management program. Through presentations and discussions, this course offers a clearer look at the issues that impact managers today. The recommended practices and exercises helped me to be more aware of and present to myself and my environment.
The program leads participants on an adventure in search of a new vision, a meaning to all this tumult.

It takes great courage to do the work managers do. It demands a large fraction of our energy, our life and our time. The Complexity, Consciousness and Management program enables participants to find a synergy of possibilities, to lift the veil on our inner selves and on our environment.
The program’s activities are organized and presented to produce a form of synergy that fosters sharing of our individual and collective resources. The course content, based on valid scientific studies, helps give meaning to various business models.
This is the most constructive training I've ever received. Thanks for a great course!
