Change is always a question about identity, meaning and “foundations”. I can advise on philosophy, human sciences and social sciences, allow my clients to make relevant decisions for their strategy. Moreover, philosophy is the best way people can appropriate, responsibly, the meaning of the change. For example, we work with staff member on their professional identity and conceptualize it. We use socratic’s dialog and mind-mapping. So they can think about their own identity.
