Our Philosophy and Approach


Effectiveness is a word that often creates a negative reaction. It refers to the idea of a world obsessed by the production of efforts that seems to have no brakes and no limits. Where men endlessly exhaust themselves for so little, sacrificing in the process health, friendship, family, values, and peace of mind, it inevitably leads to burnout, which is the moment when the absurdity of this path inexorably bursts wide open! This results in the defeat of men and women, but also of the company and the organizations to which they collaborate.

Whether we like it or not, we are all looking for efficiency. Who would like to live without setting any objective, without having any goal to achieve, whether educational, sentimental, family, relational, professional, social, collective, civic, political, etc.? Who, like the stone, the plant, or the animal, would choose to have no hold on his destiny, and thus become the prey of external events and the blows of fate? Once chosen, who would not wish to see his goals realized, at least partially, even at the cost of significant efforts and determination?

To be effective ultimately consists in nothing other than that: to produce the expected result, meet the objective that we want to achieve. We all wish to see our desires and wishes fulfilled, regardless of their nature. But the question is: “At what the cost?”. Are we working and living to the best of our ability, investing our time, efforts, and energy on activities that generate the best return on the investment?

Do we have the means and are we able to make ourselves capable of being not only effective (i.e. meeting our objectives) and also efficient (i.e. focusing on how we reach our goals). For, contrary to the animal whose instinct constitutes the sole source of the "efficacy" of its actions, men are not born efficient and above all, men can only be so if they apply themselves patiently and permanently to become so.

The specificity of our approach is to consider human action as the result of two types of interdependent structures.

The first type looks at the environment in which an action takes place and which is intended to modify one or the other or even all of its parts.

The second type refers to the mind-set - a man or woman adopts to carry out an action. These last operations are of an intellectual, emotional and bodily nature. They, in turn, refer to capacities and dispositions, which one can develop, cultivate and maintain with proper method and intelligence.

If the first type of structure and its knowledge are undoubtedly important, since by our action we mainly aim at modifying our external environment, the second type is no less so, and perhaps even more so. Indeed, whatever the quality and the richness of its environment, we cannot draw anything from it if we have not been able to use it intelligently in the first place.
