Management, HR and education
Our consulting activity aims to create positive value in organisations by using organisational positive psychology’s science and practice to enhance their effectiveness.
Our consultancy is an offer of expert advice and guidance in the field of positive psychology based on our 20 years of experience that give us a unique perspective on your issues and enable us to use scientific logic to develop sustainable solutions that work for you. Our clients are as varied as SMEs, international corporations, national or local governments, think tanks, education providers, PR agencies or training institutions.
What is the value proposition of positive psychology in the real world? Is the premise of positive psychology as constructive and focusing on helping us to get more of what we want (resilience, well-being, engagement, etc.) sustainable in real-life situations? Join us on our consultancy journey to find out.
How does a consultation with positran take place?
Each consultation, whether it lasts 10 minutes or 10 months, inevitably goes through 5 phases:
1. Entry and contracting
Understanding the needs of the clients and defining the problem or challenge.
2. Data collection and analysis
If necessary and desired by the client, we use one of the following 4 scientific diagnostics to gather data: Positive Organisational Profile (POP), Positive Energy Index, Values Consistency Index or Positive Leadership Profile. If no quantitative input is required, we use qualitative questioning and analysis instead.
3. Feedback and the decision to act
We aim to reduce a large amount of data to a manageable number of issues and present the information back to the client. The results allow us and the client to select the best science-based action steps/interventions.
This involves carrying out the planning of the previous step. This can take different forms: training, product/tool development, collective and/or individual coaching. Our interventions utilise modern disruptive methodological approaches, such as Escape Games, Lego Serious Play, Appreciative Inquiry, Job Crafting, bite-size learning, experiential labs, etc.
5. Evaluation, extension, termination
We evaluate the main event/implementation, hold a “lessons learned” meeting with the client and consider if an extension of the project is necessary.
Use a scientific approach for sustainable performance!
In order to achieve sustainable performance for your company or organisation, you need to think how to achieve engagement and well-being for all. Indeed, engagement appears as the main psychological predictor of effectiveness, efficiency, performance at work, more than well-being which, alone, is not always predictive of better performance. On the other hand, well-being complements engagement and enables optimal human functioning over the long term.
To achieve these ends, scientific research has identified 3 main categories of levers on which to intervene: the work environment, personal resources and the role of work. The 18 resulting scientific levers can be used to achieve desired results. Based on your strengths and specific needs, we will help you find and reinforce required levers, in a playful and concrete way, and enable you to achieve sustainable performance.
