The CU*i Online Programme for Culture Transformation


CU*i is a blended-learning programme that combines online learning and live human interaction and can be scaled across entire organisations.

What if you could create an organisation…

… that attracts and retains high-performing talent?

… in which millennials and other employees co-create solutions with respect and appreciation for one another?

… in which leaders and employees alike promote a mindset of ownership – for themselves and the big picture?

… in which every employee is trained at the same depth yet cost-effectively – instead of only training leaders and top talents?

‘Culture eats strategy for breakfast.’

Peter Drucker

Re-invent your organisation’s culture

CU*i supports you in building a thriving organisation that people are excited to work for, do business with and buy from.

Our Approach

CU*i supports microlearning:  small tasks in your own time, on any device.

Online engagement

Our online platform:

  • hosts content in the form of videos, audios and scripts guiding self-reflection and dialogue
  • allows participants to login at any time and study when it is most convenient for them
  • increases accountability, positive competition and communication

Live interaction

CU*i promotes deep dialogue between team members to make insights matter:

  • weekly buddy conversations
  • regular team reflections
  • regular group video conferences with a CU*i-coach

Four steps to transform your organisation

The CU*i-programme is based on four steps that promote individual and collective development leading to fast and sustainable changes:

1. Do inner work

  • ownership
  • ability to engage in deep dialogue
2. See the big picture

Gain a systemic understanding of all elements and interfaces within your organisation.

3. Engage in reflective action

Increase your ability to be pro-active in the moment while simultaneously maintaining a meta-perspective.

4. Apply conscious rituals

What participants say about CU*i

There is now a sense of WE that we never had in the organisation.

Today, I courageously address conflict while being more open to listening to others.

Our team became a safe space.

The buddy conversations enabled us to have radically different dialogue from the ones that normally happen in the organisation. I now trust my team.

My good intentions turned into actions. I am much more proactive than I used to be.

We now feel responsible for each other – because we care about one another as a person.

I am much more willing  to engage with colleagues that I once labelled difficult because I now understand better what drives them.

CU*i introduced me to important self-care rituals, which increased my wellbeing.

We are less afraid of looking silly or feeling vulnerable – which has resulted in more creative and interesting solutions.

What we do, believe in and value

We support the creation of conscious, self-organising and regenerative communities (families, teams, companies, and ultimately nations).

We believe to be conscious means to be reflective, sincere and congruent in mind and body. If we are conscious we are able to handle complexity and change within ourselves, others, our organisations and the world at large. We believe the world needs more conscious individuals and collectives that can navigate a complex world while acting in a peaceful and regenerative manner. We believe that communities, such as organisations, are the most powerful levers to increasing global consciousness and unleash humanities collective potential – which is why we are passionate about supporting people in organisations to become more conscious.

We achieve this through our three core values:

Look inside

Self-awareness fosters personal accountability and therefore is the key to just about everything that is good in life: deep and joyful connection with self and others, contentment and success (whatever that may mean to you). First know thyself.

Connect deeply

Deep and conscious relationships with self and others are the glue that keeps this world together. We care for ourselves, our relationships and our own communities through engaging in deep, loving, open and regular dialogue that cultivates trust and co-creativity.

Keep learning

We see the joy, power and value that lies in life-long-learning and development. We continuously invest in developing our behaviours, skills and body/health, our mindset and psychological health, our culture and communication, and our processes and systems.

‘To be conscious means to be reflective, sincere and congruent in mind and body.’
