How we work FAQ

What makes you different & efficient?

We get below the surface. As anyone who has ever tried to change their own behaviour knows, it is much easier to know "what" to do, than it is to learn behaviourally "how" to do it.

Most approaches to soft skills training do a good job of teaching people what is an appropriate and inappropriate behaviour, but they fail to help people to identify the potential causes of inefficiency as well as provide practical steps to develop action plans.

We know that we learn by experience, and by reflecting on our mistakes. So we always start our training workshops with group exercises that allow people to identify their particular ways of behaving or thinking. We then share best practice, techniques and tools, and we discuss what they could change and what their challenges might be. This is where we excel: brainstorming ideas for improvement – what they can specifically do to adopt new patterns.

Because learning that changes behaviours and produces results is a process (not a single event), our programmes come with post workshops e-coaching support to review what your people have tried, what worked best, what didn't work so well, how to progress and how to leverage their strengths.

What about the USP of the team?

Olystix was founded by Jeanne Monchovet, a business communication expert. She believes in working with people at the top of their game and specialists in their field. She has assembled a team of core associates: strengths coach, change leadership, culture change, communication, self-management and cross-cultural awareness. To add as much diversity as possible to Olystix programmes, she has developed a pool of talented guest speakers including CEOs of large corporates, neuroscientists, artists and startup founders.

How do you identify the need of my people?

We always kick start our programmes by interviewing the management team and head of people to find out more about your key challenges as a business, the key challenges of your people, and your expectations of the programme, ie. what specifically you want your people to be able to do by the end of the programme.

An online questionnaire is then sent to all participants so they can have an input into the programme content. The questionnaire looks at strengths and areas for development and also asks for any particular scenarios that they would like specific help with.

How do you evaluate the results?

The evaluation we provide is based on Kirkpatrick's 4 level training evaluation model. At the end of the programme, we survey your people to measure the impact of the programme and collect their feedback on what they liked best, less and any suggestions.

We are very proud of the feedback that we receive from our clients. Each and every year, our programmes are rated on average 4.3 out of 5.

Do you offer e-learning?

We offer e-training, using an e-learning platform that allows us to deliver virtual training workshops in exactly the same way as our face-to-face workshops, including active group conversations, practicing skills opportunities, activities in sub-groups, co-creating tools together, visioning videos, polling and quizzing.

As building soft skill calls for continuous practice in order to form new habits, we also offer video simulations with customised scenarios where learners are asked to record their response to the scenario and receive personalised feedback. Simulations mirror the everyday situations your people are facing. You need to allow 6 to 12 weeks for production, from design stage to delivery.

What our clients say

Jeanne and I worked together to refine my pitch deck and improve its delivery. After going through the material she was able to very quickly provide valuable input. Her methodology and structure helped give the pitch a much needed clarity to the message delivered. I'd highly recommend working with her!

Jean-Michel Chalayer
Co-Founder & CEO, LeSalon

I have achieved so much in the 6 months we worked together! I can see the positive changes in the way I approach situations and conduct myself with stakeholders and in meetings. I am not the same person. I feel empowered to deal with situations and face new challenges. My little book of notes and Jeanne's tips, is always close at hand.

Jeanne designed and facilitated a vital and very successful key programme for the senior managers and leaders of Ceridian UK. Our senior management each commented on how Jeanne's contribution, through joining thinking up and identifying key win elements, played such a significant role in making the programme successful. I am happy to say that the programme has delivered success, and that its impact continues.

Jeanne built the Rising Stars programme to help our young talents develop good management habits and personal effectiveness as early as possible. As a result they are more engaged, they understand their role in the business and the team cohesion is greater. Jeanne was praised by all participants. She is a great consultant to work with. A highly recommended stellar programme.

Jeanne truly helped us define our pitch, training us to communicate our start-up's value proposition. Jeanne's analytical skills are unquestionable. She knows what to leave/what to include, where to start/where to end and how to frame the story. And as a bonus, she is honest and full of contagious energy.

I found Jeanne a very knowledgeable and practical advisor. The techniques she proposed and the advice given regarding presentations and sales approaches have proved extremely valuable, enabling me to secure consultancy work and a sign off for my re-organisation proposals. I would wholeheartedly recommend Jeanne to any prospective clients.

Jeanne established a clear and manageable programme for me over several months. Her input was critical and our collaboration yielded positive results from day one. She especially helped me in my communication with my team and colleagues. She had a very positive result on my management style and helped me find my feet in the organisation.

Leslie Venon

I worked with Jeanne when I had to prepare for a pitch in very little time. Her approach was very efficient. She asked a few questions and got me to deliver my pitch. She then made suggestions on how to present my story in the optimal and simplest way. All that in just a couple hours.
