Our philosophy

In 2020 founder Ingrid Valks introduced the Humanity & Vitality Wheel. The wheel forms the foundation of all our programs. It consists of six pillars to develop personal competences and four modules to practice well-being. It’s a balanced set of foundation tools for future-ready leaders. The state-of-the -art blended learning program will unleash the potential of the individual. At the same time group dynamics strengthen the individual learning path.

Attendees experiment with new leadership behavior and participate in live, online and offgrid educational experiences in order to:

  • unleash their potential
  • achieve a better understanding of their purpose
  • boost their professional influence
  • train emotional intelligence
  • grown sustainable connections

Human skills will be in higher demand across industries. Human skills are personal competences that require a mind-body-heart connection and describe a wide range of characteristics relevant to collaborate effectively and harmoniously in teams, leading responsibly and being self-aware.

BeyondU is the name of our personal growth program for high potentials and top performers in business, science and society. The seven pillars in the humanity wheel lead talent transformation through the development of human skills as foundation tools for future-ready leaders.

Attendees participate in blended educational experiences, live, online and offgrid. Attendees achieve a better understanding of their purpose, share their true identity with the world, understand the impact of values and beliefs on interaction with others, boost emotional intelligence, experiment with new leadership behavior  and they can recognize and lead ehtical dilemmas at work.

The European Commission evaluated BeyondU as ‘innovative and outstanding’.

The holistic approach of our well-being plan has a proven transformative impact. We work with the Vitality Wheel that includes four modules: mind training, nature connection, nutrition & lifestyle and strategies to promote sound sleep. You can lead your employees to practice well-being as a foundation skill. It can improve mental resilience at the workplace with up to 5.6%, reduce stress symptoms with 28,2% and realize a measured 19.9% reduction in psychological exhaustion.

And beyond the numbers lay a deeper truths. Participants share a better understanding of themselves, better focus, structure to the day and last but not least a feeling of camaraderie as you to it together with colleagues. Together it is more easy and more fun.

People from over 22 countries did already participate in our Be-Vital plan. We call our preventive interventions, educational experiences: action learning. It is easy to understand and no experience is required.

Human skills will be in higher demand across industries. Human skills are personal competences that require a mind-body-heart connection and describe a wide range of characteristics relevant to collaborate effectively and harmoniously in teams, leading responsibly and being self-aware.

In 2020 we developed the Humanity & Vitality Wheel. Seven actions for high performers and top talents to boost professional influence and grow sustainable connections, including the one with yourself. We call the seven actions the BeyondU program. It’s the foundation of all our experiences and interventions.
