Based upon methodology first taught at Stanford University’s famed Creativity in Business Course, the 8-week program is designed to take your team on a profound journey into unearthing their creativity, decreasing their stress, and developing a happy life-work balance. Using practical tools and techniques proven in business and in life for 35+ years, your Culture Catalyst trainer will empower your team to authentically live their best lives and tap into new found creativity, balance, and peace.

The Program

The Culture Catalyst is a process for tapping into ones full creative potential to create breakthrough results on a personal or professional challenge or goal. This mindfulness and emotional intelligence program was developed by Dr. Michael Ray in 1979 and based on proven methods from his Creativity in Business work at Stanford and in corporations.

This program is designed to get your team from where they are to where you want them to be. The program will cover one topic per week for a period of 8 weeks. They will learn and apply the 8 lessons of the Stanford course by working with Culture Catalyst master trainer Jennifer Grace, who will guide them in a process of developing a daily mindfulness practice to decrease stress both at home and in the workplace, use the practical tool box to unearth new creativity and passion at work, become a more confident and effective communicator, and apply the powerful practices to create a happier more fulfilled life.

Most of the learning in this program does not require dedicated time, but rather attention and practice to integrate new ideas into day- to-day activities. This is not something separate from their personal and professional day to day, but rather a much more powerful way to go about their day to day.

The CIJourney is a process for tapping into your full creative potential to create breakthrough results on a personal or professional challenge or goal.

You will learn and apply the 8 lessons of the Stanford Creativity course by working with me, you will be guided on the journey of developing a vision and plan around your goals and challenges, and then applying the powerful tools to make your vision a reality.

How much time do I need for this class?
You will need to set aside the time for the class meeting, (90 minutes-2 hours, once weekly) and about an hour per week for work outside of class. This program is intended to be immediately integrated into your daily life, so don’t worry too much about “homework.” What is required is a commitment to open-mindedness and self-discovery.

“A few weeks after CIJ, I found myself SO grounded and centered and present. I truly felt, ‘Wow, I’m in a good place. I’m in a positive place and things are moving in the right direction for me.’ This realization of being aware and centered has actually helped me get out of my own way. It’s been such a relief. I think it’s important to really look within and spend 8 weeks focusing on yourself. I’m so glad I did it.”
