Following our successful seminar-workshops held in London and Tokyo and our immersive retreats held in the South of France and El Nido, Palawan; iCube-Thrive and Culture@Work are once again joining forces to host another exclusive Full-Day Workshop in Paris, France.

Thierry de Tourniel, Eric Vidal and Dipa Trivedi will coach a selected small group of participants on the following topic: 

Emotional Intelligence - What is it exactly?

It is the capacity to be aware of, control, and express one's emotions, and to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

"emotional intelligence is the key to both personal and professional success"

Work: cultivate your emotional intelligence. Our professional success depends less on our IQ or diplomas than on our emotional know-how (EQ), says American psychologist Daniel Goleman in his book Emotional Intelligence.


Intelligence Emotionnelle - Qu'est-ce que c'est exactement?

C'est la capacité d'être conscient, de contrôler et d'exprimer ses émotions, et de gérer les relations interpersonnelles judicieusement et empathiquement.

"L'intelligence émotionnelle est la clé de la réussite personnelle et professionnelle"

Travail : cultiver son intelligence émotionnelle. Notre réussite professionnelle dépend moins de notre QI ou de nos diplômes que de notre savoir-faire émotionnel (EQ), affirme le psychologue américain Daniel Goleman dans son livre L'intelligence émotionnelle.



- Enhance your personal / professional, business Emotional Intelliegence leadership skills

- Discover and learn how to better use your soft power leadership skills with our interactive EQ self-assessment and NLP based exercises

- Re-center yourself, get rid of uncessary stress, better focus and lead from your heart, from a place of genuine empathy, thanks to meditative Zen & Yoga techniques

Dipa Trivedi, Hatha, Iyengar yoga and mindfulness instructor based in London

Ms Trivedi has been featured in the Telegraph and other yoga websites for her work with Amy Dickson and her well attended retreats in Spain.

"I believe that visualisation through meditation and breathing is the best way forward to manage stress and anxiety while still achieving goals. My talk will be about how we can learn to visualise something, open the third eye or the pineal gland function fully to be able to materialise your thoughts into actions."


- Kanako Iwase, Social Entrepreneur, CEO of Arusha Japan:
"I have met Eric Vidal when he started to learn Japanese at our school in November 2014. I have created Arusha 7 years ago as a Social Enterprise to help political and war refugees settle in Japan, providing them assistance with their paperwork, teaching them Japanese language, and training the ones interested in manicure and pedicure treatments so they could generate an income within a few months.
This enterprise has been my life for the last few years as I am really passionate about what I do, helping the most needy in our affluent society. 
However after discussing with Eric, I realized that I was missing out on a more social and personal aspect of my life. Eric has coached me to adjust my priorities to find a better balance within my 4 circles of life. I am starting to feel happier, and I just keep working at it. I can only recommend Eric's ability to empathize and help people find their own serenity. He is very nice, funny and gentle.”

- Sr. HR Executive at a top American Consulting Firm: 
"... Thanks to iCube-Thrive's coaching sessions I have been able to clarify my life choices and draw a better, clearer roadmap for my future already helps me a lot to feel more serene, and consequently happier with my current Life ... I have recently found the courage to switch to a more exciting job" 
- R. Da Silva, Startup Advisor & Writer, Fulbright Fellow:
"Eric Vidal is sharp and insightful, and has given me lots of help with mentoring and coaching, figuring out how to prioritize life areas and balance between different projects. He has great global experience across Asia, Europe and the US, and can greatly help an Entrepreneur or a C-Level Executive better formalize his / her vision and project as well as design a more focused and richer Life." 
- IT Director at a leading American Tech Firm:
"I often thought I had been quite successful so far at leading my life with a beautiful and loving wife, 2 great kids, and since last year a new very promising senior position at ... .... but I also realized that something was missing to feel totally fulfilled. iCube-Thrive has helped me get a clearer vision of my work and personal life, by motivating me to draw from my past experiences, my inner passions and to define a better road map for the future I envision one day as a real estate investor in Hawaii." 

- CEO at a leading digital agency based in NYC:
"I met Thierry de Tourniel via a Japanese art buyer friend, and following a Zen meditation retreat in Japan, and it is then that I learned about the benefits of NLP Training. I had been very successful early on in my career back in Europe, then in SE-Asia and finally in NYC where I had co-funded and led a fast growing integrated marketing agency. But in recent years I had felt the need to refocus my life on projects I really cared about, and to fight some kind of procrastination, preventing me from completing my most exciting although quite challenging projects. By better visualizing my past stumbling blocks as well as my most successful and happiest moments in life, Thierry has helped me better project myself into the future by crossing-over this procrastination gap. I am feeling enlightened, after regaining power, confidence and self-esteem. I truly recommend Thierry's NLP training and his friendly, cool approach."

- Vickie C., Entrepreneur and Marketer based in Vermont, USA:

"I met Eric Vidal in a seminar in NYC and right from our first meeting I have that felt his empathy and his seasoned international experience could help me I have run all my different projects and ventures through him and always got a sharp analysis and to the point feedback that were very constructive. Since Eric has also become a trusted friend and he is organizing some retreats in Stowe where I live with my husband. I can whole heartedly recommend any entrepreneur or CEO in the process of launching a new venture or in the middle of a career and life change to seek advice from Eric Vidal as he is himself a well rounded and attentionate coach and a very experienced global entrepreneur. "

- Virginie Faucon, Senior Marketing Strategy Manager

As a Senior Marketing Strategy Manager with extremely limited free time, I was doubtful I would commit to Yoga when I started. It gives my mind a complete break and relief after all the hours working in front of the computer. If my first yoga class had not been with Yoga Muni, I doubt that I would be a yoga practitioner today. Dipa Trivedi, teacher at Yoga Muni changed my preconceptions, clearly explaining the applications and benefits of yoga to modern life. I always feel like I have had good workout and yet feel energised and relaxed too. I always leave the classes with a feeling of peaceful positive calm. I used to get back ache because of my posture at work and that's disappeared since taking up yoga.

- Pierre Coppin, 33, Consultant
It's a great way of unwinding at the end of the workday, Dipa specializes her classes on your problem areas. No class is the same it is very varied, the group class is fun and social. If you are looking for an all round workout, that will challenge you and that can cater for all ages and ability, I recommend you give it a try. 

- Emilie Szasz, 32, Dentist
"Dipa’s classes always include breathing exercises, warm-up, a range of postures and a great relaxation. She adapts her class according to individual needs, I had a very stiff upper back and neck because of my work and since I do yoga it has improved a lot. I have also changed many of my bad habits like short breathing, poor posture and now I always correct it and relax my shoulders by myself.
 I would recommend anyone to attend one of her classes."

- Carlo Orelli, 40, Actuary

"As a man the last thing I ever thought of trying was Yoga to exercise. I had my view of Yoga that it was all mumbo jumbo. So when my friend suggested we go it took some persuasion. My first experience was a surprising as the class was so welcoming and Dipa took the time to explain how to do the exercises properly. Now to dispel the myth that you don’t get a workout, on the contrary Dipa manages to incorporate Yoga that not only helps to relax and improve ones flexibility but also increases core body strength."

iCube-Thrive + Culture@Work

A co-production between iCube-Thrive (NYC & Tokyo) and Culture@Work (London)


We are pragmatic visionaries, who believe that a strong and authentic corporate culture is the ultimate competitive asset. Yet, most companies underinvest in their own culture.

We have therefore developed a simple but powerful approach to guide companies through the process of shaping, strengthening or transforming their corporate culture, in order to achieve long-term performance and true team incentive.

We have formalized our approach into what we call the "Culture Foundation Programme".

iCube-Thrive (a division of iCube-NewYork, Inc.)

Our aim is to create a mindfulness hub, a friendly community for smart and dynamic individuals, entrepreneurs, CEOs, C-Level executives, together with respected therapists, healers, startup advisors, influential mentors and coaches. We offer exclusive coaching retreats with unique multi-sensory experiences for overwhelmed individuals (on the edge of burnout) or the ones experiencing a temporarily loss of direction, yet with a discerning mind and the wish to enjoy smart vacations in paradise-like locations. 

Our 3 to 7-Day retreats are located in El Nido - Philippines, Thailand, Japan, the French Riviera - Provence, the South of Spain and Morocco, as well as upstate New York, Vermont, Maine and Arizona.

We also organize motivation & leadership development seminars in London, Tokyo and NYC integrating the best "East meet West" trained motivators, leadership models and effectiveness strategies with a particular emphasis on mindfulness, vision clarity, for a richer and happier work-life balance.
