The Genuine Contact™ Program

The Genuine Contact Way offers a holistic approach to change and to personal and professional leadership. It is about developing skills, knowledge, and capacity to create successful organizations where people can thrive. The Genuine Contact way of working is designed to allow people to discover the possibilities and unseen potentials that are under the surface and are felt by the people who are in the process and committed to finding solutions for the coming centuries. 

The Genuine Contact Program is a series of nine workshops carefully developed to assist people in learning to work with the Genuine Contact Way. The Holistic Leadership Developement Workshop is foundational module 4 of the program. The workshop adds another perspective to the Foundational Modules 1,2 and 3 of the Genuine Contact Program: Path to Organizational Health and Balance; Achieving Organizational Health and Balance; Individual Health and Balance.

These modules aim to regenerate relationship with oneself and the values of ones organization and also to increase awareness about personal and organizational health and balance. The Genuine Contact Way believes that focusing on genuine contact enables individuals and organizations to achieve the individual and organizational health and balance that is needed for optimal effectiveness.
