At the beginning
The Interactifs Discipline® was developed by Philippe de Lapoyade and a group of management and communications professionals. It is the fruit of an original piece of research based on the observation, over a sustained period, of what happens when people interact.
The start-point was a simple question: “What happens when we are seen as effective communicators?”
The end-result was the identification of a certain number of constants of behaviour which allow people to interact with others in a way which produces esteem and trust as well as concrete results. Quite simply, Interactifs has applied the rigours of quality engineering to human interactions. What we do is therefore to teach people how to have better relations and better results.
We set out to raise people’s interpersonal skills to the same level of professionalism and rigour as their functional or process skills.
Using the Interactifs Discipline® means having talent day in and day out rather than just occasionally and according to circumstance.
