Since 2001, Life Journey Map™ was fine-tuned and used in thousands of individual and organisational interventions, throughout the US and Europe.
Any program or organisational intervention is based both on the cooperation competence of individuals and the internal level of motivation. Life Journey Map™ is a versatile tool that can be used in any situation of individual or organisational development, of building and managing teams.
We offer access to your individual values map, to your own internal GPS, to your motivating factors, to what you treasure the most.
- Organisational Values Journey
You discover the values that define your company's culture, how the individual values match with the organisational ones, what are the items that build the cooperation competence, what is the specific values toolkit that every team uses in the decision-making and problem-solving processes.
- - Vision: the map of the individual motivations that support the program, on various hierarchical levels
- - Strategy: what are the objectives, how does the roadmap that leads to a human-based organization look like
- - Execution: developing the necessary internal competence, capable of transforming strategy into impeccable implementation
"This experience came into my life when I most needed it, at a difficult stage! The report and especially the meeting with the consultant made finding the path that leads to the individual I actually am easier for me, knowing how I can lean on my values when I make a decision, in personal or professional matters."
"Getting together with my values was more than revealing... A surprise, but in the same time, an acknowledgement of the things I knew about myself, but did not use consciously. It was that "date with myself" that I needed. Thank you!"
"I lead a team of 25 people and our job is a technical one, by definition, that gravitates around numbers and complex calculations. I discovered extraordinary things about how the words I use influence other people and that motivation comes from within, not from someone else."
"Congratulations for this tool that, as far as I know, is unique on our market. The online dialogue with the specialist made me deal with different feelings, but, in the end, the entire time we spent together was worth it! I can say that I came out of this experience being more aware of my values and a little more motivated!"
"The iValue report and also the counselling session with the Human Developer specialist have been fruitful to me for several reasons. I believe alignment to personal values is essential to living a meaningful life, in harmony with myself and the environment. Thanks to Life Journey Map, I have a clearly organised map of these values (yes, things are a little more complex than just choosing 3-5 values from a list), but also a small guide to using my inner resources. As I am at a stage where getting in touch with my personal mission is a priority for me, I’ve connected to my carrer values, which underline the mission. Wow, isn’t it?"
"You can't look inward, by looking in outward mirrors! It has been a real, extraordinary experience, that certified many personal things that I knew about myself. Through this experience I have seen a clear image of my inward world, my landmarks that make me be my self everyday. This 'inward mirror' is a true guide that we all should have at hand. A must-have for any person who embarks on a self- discovery journey! Even if you start by having an online test, the whole experience that the consultant offers you, boosts your self with emotions, answers and 'homework'. Thank you for the 2 hours of 'self-awareness-therapy'."
