Yoga-LEAP in Ghent Belgium   Ghent, Belgium.  April 11-12.  Eight people with at least three things in common.  They had all recently completed a Yoga Teacher Training Course conducted by Yogalife (check it out at www.yogalife.com).  The last couple of days of their course had featured the founder of Yogalife, Sanjeev Bhanot, our friend and increasingly famous yoga guru.  More famous now, because he is the Yoga Trainer for the pilots of the Solar Impulse, now attempting to fly around the world on solar power.  All of our clients had that warm healthy glow about them that comes with regular yoga and healthy food.  And, they had all joined a LEAP Personal Planning Workshop that Marcia and I were facilitating.   For those who may not be familiar with LEAP, it is an acronym for Life Experience Action Planning, a planning process designed to help individuals, couples, groups and companies in some kind of transition move with purpose...

  More than 8,000 products, garden tools to guacamole, beverages to baby powder,   toilet paper to tuna fish, carpet cleaner to quinoa are found in the retail outlets of the Colruyt Group.  The process to get these products from the supplier to the store shelves involves a myriad of people and is managed by Product Group Managers.  In this family owned company that employs 26,000 people, there are 10 PGMs.  Marcia and I had the pleasure over the past two weeks of first interviewing all ten (and 15 of the colleagues they work most closely with) and then facilitating a 21/2 day Team Building and Team Planning Retreat  It was held in Wisteria, a wonderful bed and breakfast in Herne, a village about 20 minutes by train from Brussels.       We all worked hard and with enthusiasm. Following the steps of the LEAP planning process, we identified personal...

LEAP TEAM BUILDING AND TEAM PLANNING RETREAT FOR THE COLRUYT GROUP Over the last months we have been planning and designing a LEAP within a LEAP for the Colruyt Group in Halle Belgium.  Since we arrived we have conducted a rigorous Training Needs Assessment and have since revised the schedule and the handbook to better address the concerns of the group.  We also learned a great deal about the workings of this extraordinary company (which is much like Costco) whose mission is stated as:  'Together, we create sustainable added value through value-driven craftsmanship in retail.'    They continue by saying:   Every word in this mission statement has been chosen carefully. Together: We are considerate towards all our staff members, customers, suppliers, manufacturers, shareholders, etc. Sustainable: We do business with a minimum amount of raw materials, energy and human effort. Added value: We aim for a maximal added value in favour of the economy, people and the environment. Value-driven craftsmanship: We see expertise as more than just executing...

For the first time ever we have two courses going on (on- line) at the same time! They are up and running on our new Moodle platform, www.taptraining.org/Moodle, written by me and produced and conducted by Andrew our super server administrator, found on www.Elance.com.  These two pilot courses (LEAP YOURSELF and the LEAP COACH TOT) will bring LOOP coaches up to date with the new and improved LEAP materials. The Moodle platform will be available for TAP associates to use to develop their own on-line courses. You can take a look at the platform, but you cannot see the courses unless you are enrolled for a course. Once these pilot programs are run, we will make the improvements suggested by the testers and will run LEAPs on line on a regular basis, with our ever expanding network of coaches.  ...
