AikiCom, what is it ?

AikiCom is about reconnecting with ourselves and with others.

Christian vanhenten

Inspired by Aikido, AikiCom has identified the essentials of Aikido as a non violent martial art to be applied in daily life, private and work.

  • Ai in Japanese language means Harmony, reconciling, it is about reconnecting what is separate and should not be.
  • Ki is about life energy. It is the energy of our life we can spend to realize our vision, what is moving us
  • Com is about communication, the process of life when in contact with others and our environment

AikiCom is the way we choose to invest our energy to reconcile and restore harmony through better communication.
In business it is the power of cooperation for optimal efficiencyIn private life it is a way for peaceful and loving relationships.

It is about kindness and about martial-ness — because life is not so easy

AikiCom is an embodied practice where words and our body in movement create new meaning and experience.
Because no change can last if it is not embodied

AikiCom is proposing an Aikido-based developmental environment.

Authenticity, action, presence, connection in the life and at work

Allying cooperation and competition

Competition is everywhere at work and at home. When it is pushing us to raise our level of performance, it is stimulating. When it is generating conflict and opposition, it erodes morale and relationships and it makes us ineffective.

AïkiCom is a way to feed a cooperative climate and benevolence at work, at home, with friends, relatives or colleagues.

Allying body and mind

In the field of behavioral change, self-management, authentic communication, knowledge is not enough.
To integrate our knowledge and implement it in daily work and private life, we cannot ignore our body. AikiCom is an embodied approach. Combining physical and mental performance technical learning management practice is radically changing the way we communicate together, manage conflict, teamwork.[/cs_text][cs_text]

Fighting for more well-being in the workplace

Every survey studies confirm that well-being in the workplace does not improve. The hidden cost of this malaise is huge. AïkiCom is the perfect approach to develop a culture of cooperation and kindness in cultures where competition and aggressivity is undermining the organization’s efficiency.

… violence and intra-family conflicts

Martial Art of kindness and cooperation

L’AïkiCom’ is the meeting of Aikido, a japanese martial art advocating non aggressive conflict resolution and efficient communication approaches like NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), TA(Transactionnal Analysis) and NVC (Non Violent Communication).

Aiki leadership

Meeting the challenge of a world in crisis requires more than applying the recipes of the past

The troubled period we’re experiencing requires new responses. Today’s leaders can not simply do as they did before. More than ever it is appropriate to return to more authenticity, presence, daring dialogue that allows the emergence of collective intelligence while preserving indviduality. The leader of tomorrow needs to develop new skills. He has to be assertive, stimulate, participate in the creation of a shared vision and channel dynamics that puts each player in action. Authenticity, presence and connection are the qualities AïkiCom can develop. These ingredients are essential to decide and act in a world increasingly unpredictable and volatile where no one can yet claim to hold alone « the » truth.

The classics: conflict and stress management, assertivity, empathy, compassion

Born from the encounter of a martial art with communication and personal development approaches AïkiCom’s first domain of application was to address conflict management by combining body to words.

It manages to combine fighting spirit and kindness, self-respect and respect for others. The practice of AïkiCom offers us to live a benevolent form of power and live and act in authenticity. It combines pro-activity and perception of living in the flow of events through the application of the fundamental principle of Aikido ( consisting of not opposing the force with force, which boosts resistance) but to welcome the energy of the attack to provoke change and restore dialogue.
