Role play

An approach to build consistency from values to vision and action 

  • Both Churchill and De Gaulle felt invested by a mission for their country, based on very strong values built during their young years. They were visionnaries. They both loved action.

  • Trying to get inspiration from these two characters, we take you through a path from values to action:

    • revisiting your own values,

    • identifying the strengths that you can take from your early years,

    • building a consistent, aspirational and practical vision,

    • going for action.

why is this relevant today? 

Why can they still inspire us?
  • they were free spirits, visionnaries, thinking out of the box, innovators,
  • they were too very demanding men, they lived up to their dreams,
  • they both went through amazing ups and downs, showing incredible resilience,
  • they were thinkers, they loved writing and were talented speakers,
  • the were doers, they loved action,
  • they remain the major history characters of the last hundred years in their respective countries.
They are still a source of inspiration and stimulation nowadays. You will find out about their values, learn more about their early years and how they managed to build up on their experience, to come up with a vision and to put it into action.
Why should you come?
  • you're looking for new sources of inspiration for your team or for yourself,
  • you're interested to work on your valuesvision and sense of action, in the light of those two characters,
  • as a manager, you are looking for a new original way to boost your team, away from more conventional approaches:
    • discover the values that you share,
    • make people commit to a common vision,
    • develop their sense of initiative and action,
    • understand what everyone can bring to the group,
    • and get your people's attention by offering them a unique workshop,
  • as an individual, you need to step back before taking up a new challenge:
    • you want to revisit your values,
    • you want to build a long term view of your project and carreer,
    • you are looking for consistency between your personal and professional life and for a sense of purpose.
