VDireck has one main sector of consulting: psychosocial intervention, more specifically in the improvement of communication skills via relational creativity.
I’m continuing to improve myself through my studies at the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), to obtain a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a concentration in Human Relations, with certification in communication, psychosocial intervention and human resource management.
This led naturally to an interest in communication and human relations, and VDireck Communications was founded in January of 2010.
The goal of VDireck is to encourage each client to form new relationship patterns or structures, to re-invent themselves by transforming their everyday lives, and to solve problems through creative risk-taking.
The mandate of the business is to offer participatory, activity-based workshops focused on problem solving. We encourage each client to exercise their creative impulses within the context of their everyday relationships.
Relational creativity is a creative experience in which individuals actively discover new perspectives – not only with regard to themselves and their own unique qualities, but also regarding their interactions with others, through creative games and activities, as well as situational analysis workshops.
These activities combine ideas with action intended to promote the development of and communication within of the group, within a given time limit, in order to enable each individual to achieve their objectives related to recognition of others and oneself.
Relational creativity is what happens when two or more individuals interact. The interaction of their cultures, experiences, beliefs, and ways of being, if it takes place authentically and sympathetically, allows not only mutual enrichment, but the emergence of a wealth of new ideas. Relational creativity is the entire process that allows individuals to create together.¹
We offer psychosocial intervention services through the use of relational creativity workshops.
Active Listening : 30 – 45 minutes
The consultant begins each session with 30 minutes of active listening, as needed, to a problem or concern of the client. The session is entirely based on the tone and tempo set by the client. The conversation continues until a clear theme, subject, or problem emerges.
Creativity Games : 15 – 25 minutes
When the theme or problem emerges, the consultant moves with the client into the games room. Depending on the clients style of communication (determined before the session begins), a creativity game is chosen; at random, or according to the clients preference. The consultant and the client play together for 15-30 minutes, to awake the clients' creativity and imagination.
Situational Analysis Workshop : 30 – 45 minutes
Next, we move into the work room. There, the consultant chooses an activity relating to the subject that was determined at the beginning, that corresponds to the clients specific communication style. They brainstorm possible solutions. The situational analysis activities last 30-45 minutes.
Feedback : 10-15 minutes
We return to the main room, the living room, and the consultant inquires into the clients satisfaction and emotional state. She listens and responds to the client as much as is needed, and then ends the session.
The intended clientele is an adult who would like to improve their relationships with others. They are high-functioning individuals, both in the workplace as well as in their personal lives, from all social classes and cultural backgrounds.
Barter : exchange of goods and/or services.
The exchange must be discussed and agreed by the consultant before the start of the session.
It is the clients' responsibility to place a specific value on the services they offer. It is recommended that the client offer a service they enjoy doing, and not necessarily what they do for a living.
Currency : 1$ / minute
One session lasts a maximum of 120 minutes.
