Maud Cuenin is passionate about creating solutions to reduce stress levels, increase wellbeing, generate positive mindsets, uncover under-utilised talents and enable companies to use the full extent of their employees’ abilities.
WHAT WE DO
Most careers are now driven much less by appetite for income and social status and much more by desire for growth, fulfilment and work-life balance.
In order to achieve this, employees need both self-confidence
and a good understanding of their strengths.
We have created a 6 weeks Transformational Program
to facilitate self discovery and increase self worth.
We have also engineered a combination of innovative processes to create opportunities for employees to interact informally, allow new ways of encouraging internal moves, while increasing the likelihood for these moves being a success.
PEACE OF MIND
Many people have difficulty concentrating, others fear change, while others suffer from stress and anxiety.
It is possible to feel comfortable, balanced and confident whatever the circumstances.
For this purpose, we have created:
ways to build networks of support within organisations
desktop tools to encourage a calm and optimistic mind-set and to generate happy brain waives (*)
a Transformational Program to help people see their qualities and potential because this allows people see how much resources they have to thrive in a changing environment
and because office environment significantly influences people's behaviours (see further below), we have partnered with an office concept company and also have a partnership with an exceptional interior designer and with an artist.
We are also able to provide expertise in relation to various forms or therapy and modalities.
(*) alpha, theta brainwaves are known to trigger calm, happiness and creativity.
We have a combination of tools
to naturally draw people to better to nutrition.
We also have solutions to entice people into exercising and many ways to help mental balance.
Understanding each employee’s full set of abilities and talents including people's soft skills is very important to be able to tap into the entire pool and avoid missing out on opportunities to fill vacancies internally.
We have created tools to identify all skills, talents and qualities across organisations and to make them visible.
FOR HR TEAMS:
For Human Resources teams, juggling with employees data, checklists, recording appraisals and training, recruitment, talent management, employee handbooks, employment contracts, legal advice, payroll, producing statistics for management and more, can be quite a challenge.
It is important that all these efforts are supported by an effective ecosystem of excellent service providers and advanced integrated software.
We have been working to identify the companies and software and have also found compatible solutions to relieve Human Resources teams who have too much of their time taken up by recruitment.
TRUST & TEAMWORK
We have a combination of innovative coaching tools and solutions to allow people to know each other better, pick up activities together, feel safe sharing honestly about themselves, and put their talents and the achievements of their team forward.
We have designed a set of over 20 pragmatic solutions, some of them inspired from discussions with companies successful at creating improvements,
some of them completely new.
We have also organised a partnership with a company with a complementary approach specialising in identifying barriers specific to each organisation.
Many of our other solutions are confidence boosting and increase informal networking, their effect enhances the benefits of our women career progression solutions.
SENSE OF PURPOSE
Our tools allow people to become more aware of their talents, bring stillness into their brains and enhance positive thinking.
This creates the circumstances for individuals to reach a greater awareness of their purpose and contributions at work and in life.
Whatever sector, industry or role people are in, there is room for creativity, inspiration and fun.
Two excellent sources are art and nature.
There are many ways to incorporate this into office life: some of our solutions fit into the office space, some of them are even desktop based and we have partnerships to bring art pieces, artists, performances, workshops and real animals in your offices if that fits your needs.
From disappointing results of company surveys, to communication from the top being misunderstood or ignored, companies have communication challenges.
We have partnerships with a company specialised in quantitative and qualitative feedback, with a cartoonist who can bring sense of humour into any difficult message and even with artists that can organise events around a particular message.
All communication nightmares can be turned into fun, insightful, meaningful and easy flowing messages.
THE CHANGE MANAGER
Our online program encourages growth in individuals and create bonding in organisations
through putting people into groups to share their experience on each milestone of the program.

PART I IS DEDICATED TO HELPING PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THEIR UNIQUE SET OF TALENTS,SKILLS, QUALITIES, CHARACTERISTICS & INTERESTS

PEOPLE ARE GIVEN A CHANCE TO PRACTICE THEIR INTUITION, INTELLIGENCE & DISCERNMENT TO FIND THEIR OWN TRUTH.
PART II IS ABOUT REVISING THE PAST IN A DIFFERENT LIGHT: LOOKING AT EVENTS MONTHS, YEARS OR DECADES LATER ADDS HINDSIGHT, MATURITY & PROSPECTIVE TO THE EQUATION,THEREBY GIVING THINGS EVENTS A DIFFERENT MEANING.
PART IV CONSISTS OF EXERCISES TO ANCHOR POSITIVE THINKING
The founder of The Change Manager took a two years sabbatical during which she travelled to Jordan’s dead sea and ancient city of Petra, the Sri Lankan jungle, the UAE desert for falconry, Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and the Himalaya, Namibia camping in the desert, climbing sand dunes and petting cheetahs.
Maud also went to Czech Republic, Greek Islands, Switzerland and France.
During that time Maud also received 250 hours of therapy, completed
250 hours of yoga, picked up new sports, trained as a therapist in two modalities, practiced transcendental meditation, reflected on her life, childhood, career and the world.
At the end of this two years’ journey, she felt she had transformed, and put together a condensed version of the steps that can be taken towards growth, happiness, fulfilment, enhanced self-worth and purpose to create this Transformational Program.
OFFICE SPACE REDESIGN
Research shows that settings influence behaviours to such degree that
behaviour forecasts based on settings are 90% accurate*.
This is very significantly higher than forecasts based on personality analysis.
Office design is a crucial factor in shaping employee behaviours and wellbeing.
In addition, offices often have many empty desks, insufficient amounts of meeting rooms and lack dedicated areas both for focused work and for informal meetings.
We have a partnership with a company with a ten years track record of successfully resolving these challenges. They also specialise in ergonomic furniture and in wellbeing.
Moreover, better integration and use of space can usually allows significant reductions in the square footage.
(*Who's in control: the power of settings | Val Curtis | TEDxLSHTM)
Our solutions make employees feel valued, increase their engagement, increase retention rate, help employees discover their strengths and make better use of them, reduce stress levels, help employees' ability to focus and become happier (*), improve collaboration and create enhanced synergies within teams and beyond, better align talent and roles, grow employees' innate emotional intelligence, reduce sick leave, give female talent better opportunities and enhance companies' reputation thereby helping recruitment.
(*) Numerous studies show that people’s minds wander about 46.9% of the time.
Straying attention occurs most often at work.
A strong correlation was found between lack of concentration and lack of happiness.
We have over 200 products, processes and concepts,
as well as an array of partner companies for specialised services, we tap into them as needed
once we have assessed the needs of your organisation.
