BECOME STRONGER (Ki): the energy of performance.

  • Posture and breathing - what "being centered" means and everyday applications.
  • Heart: self-control and optimization of emotional energy - Managing fears and pressure - how to "let it go".
  • Head: the right mindset - Emptiness by meditation and understanding of how individual/collective beliefs create success or failure.

HARMONIZE (Aï): Using fluidity to manage resistances.

  • How to feel and make others feel comfortable with change: "Be water, my friend!"
  • Practicing the right distance, effective listening and empathy.
  • Improve team cohesion: secrets of harmony within a team.
  • Negotiating, overcoming resistance and managing conflicts and crisis by using the power of non-resistance (Aikido) - Cooperation is superior to competition!

GET BETTER (Do): Working on individual and collective excellence.

  • From effectiveness to efficiency - 3 high performance leverages: field, timing, rhythm.
  • Commitment, quality and attention to details that make the difference.
  • Think bigger and "Out of the box"!
  • Code of Conduct and exemplarity: 7 values of excellence inspired from the Bushido.
