The 3 pillars of Crikos Consulting:
-Self Discovery & Coaching
-Branding & Story Telling
-Lead Generation & Sales
We carefully design a thorough questionnaire based on your business. Your answers will help us understand your idea/business together with your mission and vision. The questionnaire aims to help us understand in more depth, where you have been and where you wish to go.
We hold a 3 hour session with you evaluating the questionnaire and we will guide you in realizing your businesses weaknesses and strengths, examine your strategy, customer segmentation, structure, reach, values and growth prospects.
Having gathered all the information from our session, we conduct a Pre-testing research identifying your SWOT analysis and draft a full potential transformation report on what and how we aim to deliver, taking you and your business to the next level.
A study by Steve Cole, Professor of Medicine and Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences in the UCLA School of Medicine, showed that lack of social connection is a greater detriment to health than obesity, smoking and high blood pressure. On the flip side, strong social connection strengthens our immune system, helps us recover from disease faster and leads to a 50% increased chance of longevity. Studies show connected people also have higher self-esteem, are more empathic to others, more trusting and cooperative and, as a consequence, others are more open to trusting and cooperating with them. Social connectedness therefore generates a positive feedback loop of social, emotional and physical well-being.
That is exactly why we do what we do; At Crikos we create ideas that help you and your team to interconnect genuinely and positively. We have a large network of professionals who have specialty in creating bonds through their practice. For us it is important to first understand your need. As depending on what you need we create the environment for your team to develop social connection and strong positive interrelationship.
There is no “one size fits all” for any business. Each kind of business, company and each team has its own specificity and needs. However companies are run by people; people with feelings, with personal problems, with different agendas. Crikos specializes on the human factor; we understand people and their values. We understand what helps people to interconnect, how to increase their empathy for their colleagues, how to communicate positively and as a result create a strong positive bond within your team – a unified team.
Crikos has the experience to facilitate coaching one-to-one sessions, group sessions and activities, retreats and positive inspiring events. According to your specific needs we will generate a plan that will guarantee to deliver a healthy – motivated – interconnected culture to your team and your company.
Having a sense of meaning in our life, a life purpose is what makes us truly happy and fulfilled from within. Whether you look at it from a scientific point of view or spiritual or business, you will come to realise that living a meaningful life is what will bring unity and peace within us.
At Crikos we have discovered a simple unique practice that will help people of all ages to discover their own unique path through creating genuine connections with others and their environment. A practice that helps us reveal our mission and vision by learning to connect on a deeper level with ourselves and everyone. This practice is called L.A.U.G.H.E© Practice (Listening. Affection. Unity. Giving. Honesty. Empathy). Through L.A.U.G.H.E© Practice we help people to realise their core values, to get in touch with their hearts and a self that they have hidden under many layers of fear, negative beliefs and constant thinking.
By understanding the concept “Genuine Connection” and how everything and all living beings are connected, we tap into an unlimited amount of recourses and opportunities. It’s when we are ONE and connected that we can unfold our true life mission and achieve our goals through unity resulting in self-fulfilment.
Having found our mission from a deep level of connection we can set goals in all parts of our life, business and personal, that will bring positive solutions for our life, our communities and the greater environment.
