Specialized in leadership training since 1987, Suzy Ethier and I teach leaders and managers how to think strategically. Our methods use educational adventures that provide a heuristic experience to shorten the learning curve. Our training inspires people to develop their personal and professional talents and skills, motivating them to invest in their creative capital.

THE NEED FOR THINKING THAT PRODUCES INNOVATION: In a recent survey, more than 1500 leaders reported that the world is more uncertain than ever before. IBM's Leadership Study informed us that managing complexity is the most important challenge that managers face. The study underlined how gradual change no longer works in a climate that has altered our fundamental ways of functioning. It concludes by asserting - New strategies are required. - warning us that: "...even if leaders recognize they have to innovate in order to satisfy the changing world, they have a lot of trouble finding the creative thinking they need in their environment."

Managing complexity requires a unified response to the conditions that allow an organization to succeed: Management must add value to the organization's
Structural capital, its Client capital and its Creative capital. As such, (1) Leaders must attract and acquire talent who can provide them with operational and situational dexterity, who can add value to the organization's structural capital; (2) Management teams have to re-invent customer relations so as to enhance their organization's client capital; and (3) Organizations must embody the strategic thinking that inspires and transforms human capital into creative capital.
