If I could show you how to transform your organization and your life to reflect deeper levels of health, fulfillment and success, would you be interested? Well that's what we do here so read on!
The foundational operating premise of HEARTBiz is simple: humans are whole systems and the organizations we create are living organisms all governed by immutable quantum principles which when understood and consciously ‘tweaked’ consistently improve overall system function translating into less stress, more fun, deeper fulfillment and increased efficiency, effectiveness and profits.
In order to successfully apply these powerful principles in their work environments more and more insightful leaders are relying on cutting edge Heart-Mind, Whole Systems Thinking, Mindfulness and Emotional Intelligence Sciences to assist them in removing fear from the workplace, harnessing human emotions, enrolling staff in a greater vision of possibility and channeling those energies towards maximizing organizational intended outcomes.
In responding to the unique business challenges of our times, Marque dramatically assists organizations and individuals in producing more sustainable and profitable results by supplying them with new insights, tools and strategies in the form of consulting, coaching, training and speaking programs. Marque takes it name from the new scientific research documenting the profound physiological relationship between the heart and the brain suggesting that the heart impacts and may very well be responsible for many of our choices and actions that influence our results in life thereby creating the need to be consciously 'heart-connected' as a way to maximize our intended outcomes.
Our services are valuable for individual consultants, sole proprietors, large and small organizations involved in sales, marketing, manufacturing, research & development, customer service, human resource management, government, non-profit, small business, education and literally any type of organization where people are working together to achieve common goals, including both management and staff working together more effectively.
We believe that one of the biggest yet most elusive challenges facing organizations, are peoples’ limiting emotional reactions under stress, which create unresourceful behaviors, shut down communication, creative expression and produce unintended business results.
WHY THIS TRAINING IS DIFFERENT !
The training we do is different because it is transformational. It is not just about the data, it is about the people. It causes people to look at themselves as the primary cause within their sphere of influence, emphasizes and develops their ability to move beyond blame and justification and take total responsibility for all the results in their work world.
In addition to giving people powerful training tools and materials to manage and lead more effectively, our training is about developing people in ways which enable them to see themselves more clearly, understand how their unconscious perceptions and motivations are creating their current reality, and what steps to take in order to maximize their intended outcomes.
Finally, we assist people to make the distinctions necessary for harnessing their emotions, their language, and their habitual ways of thinking and being to create a high performance, positive action, results oriented business culture and environment.
Understanding this, Marque specializes in helping individuals within organizations to:
- create a powerful organizational culture
- work together more collaboratively
- communicate & work more effectively and effectively
- be more spontaneous, creative and innovative
- have more fun and be more fulfilled
- lead and manage more effectively
- reduce stress & enhance health and vitality
- reduce costs and save money
- consistently produce profitable results
We are able to do this because we have been through over thirty rich and fulfilling years of looking deeply into human dynamics and group mechanics. We have developed insights into personal and organizational behavior and have an uncanny ability to explain and demonstrate complex emotional dynamics, mental themes and relationships in simple and useable terms people can easily understand. We believe in the basic magnificence and abilities of all people and support them with keen insights and a great sense of humor in attaining their desired outcomes.

TRAIN THE TRAINER - Learn the techniques of creating course curriculum through the use of ACCELERATED LEARNING METHODOLOGY. As stated previously, this learning and teaching system is based on the work of Georgi Losanov who pioneered the strategies of how people's brains actually learn and how the brain and the emotions are involved in the learning process. Suggestology, which is what Losanov called his work, covers learning on the subconscious level where 97% of all learning actually takes place. Topics covered include; the learning environment, learning styles and modalities, right/left brain learning, experiential learning, the 7 Intelligences, group learning, adult learning, learning neumonics and some Instructional Systems Design which was first developed by NASA for the space program. Advantages of Accelerated Learning include saving money by cutting classroom time in half, teaching anything more efficiently, reducing stress in the learning process and having participants be able to put learned materials into action, in half the time.
TRAIN THE COACHES - If you have managers or people within your organization who you need to act as executive coaches, business coaches, leadership coaches, performance coaches or attitude coaches, then we have the methodology to train them. Based on systems thinking themes and competencies, we give your selected staff the step by step tools they need to be successful coaches and; assess coaching needs, identify goals and objectives, use the art of inquiry to uncover blocks to success, use powerful language to motivate and influence to action, use the Ladder Of Influence to distinguish unconscious assumptions and conclusions which produce limiting behaviors, and distinguish habitual unconscious survival strategies and responses which produce unintended business results. How to develop the empathy and compassion to be a successful coach is predicated on the coaches willingness and ability to be coached and to coach themselves through self reflection. Sports coaching is an idea we are all familiar with. Business Coaching is an idea whose time has come and the results can only be called exponential.
