David Shosanya is the Founder and Principal Consultant at Paideia Training and Consultancy. PAIDEIA is the Greek word used to describe the process of becoming a well rounded human being by gaining knowledge and understanding. However, the focus is not purely on knowledge acquisition, but how knowledge is embraced to enhance the humanity of the learner and the people they come into contact with.
This focus informs all that we do at Paideia Training & Consultancy - our speaking, training, facilitation consulting and coaching services - it is embedded in our three core values:
Transparency: being open and not closed towards oneself and others
- Responsibility: being courageous enough to own what belongs to you
- Vulnerability: being willing to live beyond the sphere of security
Our philosophy of engagement is rooted in our core values and processed through our unique 3-5-4 model (above) which focusses on an holistic approach to speaking, training, facilitation, consultancy and coaching. The model is built on the conviction that our core experiences, thoughts and emotions inform our behaviour, and consciously or unconsciously, determine our responses.
A failure to acknowledge, recognise, embrace and work the three core themes of experiences, thoughts and emotions significantly undermines our ability to build the level of rapport that is required to create the vulnerability that allows for transformation to take place in individuals, teams, networks or organisations.
