Organizational limitation
 
Today, people share lots of information through social networks and it transforms the way we learn. Yet, in our schools and companies, most knowledge transmission is done in a centralised, top-down fashion.

This generates passivity and disengagement at work.

It can be done differently. When peers learn from each other, they are engaged and learn more.

We have tried it, and it works !

 
Unique participative learning experience
 
We are different from TED conference, or MOOCs – the Massive Open Online Courses. Our courses are not based on one speaker talking to an audience, or one individual lecturing thousands of anonymous people far away. We help peers to learn from each other in small groups.

When they learn from each other about project management, python programming or meditation, in a participative way, they connect, show interest or passion, grow on their strength, or positive characteristics, collaborate or innovate, to the benefit of the organisation.

Our training programs and web application help groups to organize their learning.

 
Unique Benefits
For organizations

 
Engagement
/
Productivity
"I really got energized by the group and learnt to be a doer, not a thinker."
Lexin​ (Lyon)
Latest research on Gallup* on engagement shows that most engaged workers are 20 percent more profitable and productive than the least engaged ones.

Arlette (Paris)
WAP sessions enables participants to grow on their strength. Seventy percent* employees states that they are more engaged when their manager focuses on their positive characteristics.
(Cross-Cultural) Integration
"I have better connected during one day with strangers than I have for 6 months with my team"​
Imane (Lyon)
Intercultural teams get to know and appreciate each others for better performance & culture​
Collaboration
“I realized that learning together is fun + more powerful than learning from a trainer. Doing is what makes you learn the most"
Matthieu​ (Lyon)
Though management courses might be more directly related to work performance than kickboxing, for example, any learning opportunities contribute to the goal of creating a culture of collaboration and innovation

WAP Story
 
After years of leading educational events, Diane Lenne realised that too much focus is spent on curriculum, organization, logistic and speaker sourcing, to the detriment of the experience.

So, Diane and her sister decided to try an exclusive, participative experience, they called "On Top of Hills" : three days in Switzerland with a group of 10 from all over the world, with a program written based on each participant’s talents and interests!

For many participants, these sessions were the trigger for change. To give a context to the forums, she created a course at the EMLYON Business School in Lyon that she led for the first time in December 2015. From professors’ and students’ feedback and backed by researchers, they created an online program. In February, the course was inserted in the school curriculum. In June, after participating to a workshop about the digital transformation of universities, they were invited by French Education Minister Najat Vallaud Belkacem, to inspire more schools.

Since their first experiences with WAP, many organizations have expressed a need for more collaboration and knowledge sharing between teams. In October, WAP will launch pilots in these organizations in Shenzhen and Paris to accelerate learning.
