Creating... specializes in conflict transformation, leadership training, organizational development and Executive and Individual Coaching. Utilizing an experiential process-oriented and action-learning approach with an emphasis on the leader looking within (self-reflection), we aim to help individuals become outstanding leaders and assist teams to find creative and constructive solutions to workplace challenges. Our programs are available in English or Japanese.
Our mission is "Realizing Unlimited Potential in
People & Organizations."
We strive to accomplish this through our Process Work approach to conflict transformation, integrated leadership training, executive coaching, offsite facilitation and residential intensive group work & facilitation training programs. One of our strengths is customizing our programs for both small and large organizations. We operate in a variety of settings, from the corporate training room to the wilderness. We have more than 20 years experience in Japan working with a multi-cultural client base. One of Creating's core beliefs is that in order to provide top quality service to our clients, we must each be continually challenging, developing and "looking within" to maximize our own potential. In all we do, we aim to WALK OUR TALK! Please contact us for more information (please find the contact info at the bottom of each page.)
To develop genuine, open and honest
dialogue; To produce #1 quality in all we do; To
embrace integrity in all we do; To engage in ongoing
lifetime learning, assessment and improvement of ourselves, our products
and relationships with our clients.
Creating...'s core philosophy is most beautifully
expressed by the motto of the Outward
Bound Czech School Lipnice: "All the problems and conflicts of
the world are reflected in each of us and the world is a reflection of
ourselves. Therefore, we must seek the key to their solutions from within."
This captures our belief that leaders must "look within" --
focus on self-reflection -- as the first step in developing themselves,
their teams, their communities and their organizations.
