By identifying these unconscious preferences, whether they are those of managers, leaders, employees or even customers, a company can discover new ways to measure motivating and de-motivating factors in the working environment and to create ideal working conditions for employees. Not only will this increase workplace efficiency, it will also enable the company to find intelligent ways to reduce personnel costs. In 1994, he founded Identity Compass International, a network of consultants that utilise the Identity Compass® system. H. Arne Maus continues to be a member of Identity Compass International and devotes himself primarily to the research on Cognitive Intentions.

Martin Horn

Martin is a renowned Business Consultant in his home country of Germany. He is looking to expand his repertoire by adding the Vertical Development programmes from CogniLibro to his portfolio. Speed ​​in accepting changes, focusing on customer requirements and smooth processes without conflicts and loss of information – that is the driving challenge of the present. Only those organizations that find sustainable answers in structure and culture are up to this requirement profile. We accompany organizations in their development processes, not only with the introduction of new methods, but also attach great importance to the deep anchoring of values ​​and attitudes that make them sustainable. Through Martin's interventions, he leads your company to improve organizational performance. The interactions between individuals, groups, technologies and the environment are included through the holistic perspective we have chosen for our advice. Because we take the needs of those involved seriously and include people as success factors in development, we prevent relapses into old patterns.

Jacques Lacroix

Jacques Lacroix formerly worked in the private sector as an IT Senior Consultant, specialized in EDI, training people to get connected to Standarized Data Pools under GS1-Norms. He also trained himself to become a Systemic Executive Coach, which gave him the possibility to work independently and, due to his translation skills, to make highly valuable knowledge available in Spanish. He not only trained in new coaching techniques and applications, such as EmotionSync of Dr. Chrisitian Hanisch or the Identity Compass of Arne Maus, but also translated their original works into Spanish. Deeply impressed by the Constructed Development Theory of Dr. Darren Stevens and the Vertical Development programmes of CogniLibro, Jacques is now working on this new milestone.
