the euforic intern journey

team.jpg

Today is the end of my experience as an intern at euforia. The last eight months have been incredibly rewarding. I have learned a lot both professionally and personally.

I discovered a new form of collaboration, without hierarchy, centred on the human and based on self-management. Surrounded by extraordinary colleagues, I have contributed to the organization of about twenty events and trainings.

I am delighted to announce that this adventure at euforia continues. My roles in the organization will evolve. In addition to the coordination of the trainings for individuals, I will work on our marketing strategy and training design for companies and institutions.

I am aware of how fortunate I am to work in an organization that shares my values and my vision of a better world. The impact we are able to create together makes me proud and gives meaning to my daily work.

imp!act Île-de-France - un avant et un après

Photo noeud imp!act IdF - oct 2018 (1).jpg

Article Imp!act – Virginie Calmettes

Hé, toi ! oui toi ! Toi qui te sens un peu paumé dans ta vie, toi qui aimerais trouver un sens dans ce que tu fais, toi qui aimerais te sentir utile à la société ou toi qui aimes juste fréquenter des personnes inspirantes et vivre des expériences pour te booster dans ton quotidien, c’est bien à toi que je parle !

J’étais comme toi il y a quelques semaines, puis j’ai vécu imp!act ! Il y a eu un avant et un après !

Laisse-moi te raconter.

Après 6 ans d’études je me suis retrouvée en marketing dans l’industrie pharmaceutique. Pour être honnête avec toi je ne sais même pas trop comment ça s’est passé, on avance d’année en année, on se spécialise, on suit notre orientation et puis on se retrouve en poste à un endroit. Sauf que tu y es sans vraiment y être, dans le sens où ton cœur lui, n’y est pas.

C’est le genre de moment où tu te dis qu’il serait peut-être temps de te poser les bonnes questions. Alors tu commences à te renseigner, regarder autour de toi, partir avec conviction à la recherche d’un sens… Mais tu tournes vite en rond, et tu termines ta quête sans beaucoup plus d’idées de vers où t’orienter et encore moins comment.

Tu te sens comme dans un tunnel d’où tu peux certes avancer et reculer, mais où tu ne peux plus changer de direction.

Et puis un jour quelqu’un m’a dit : « Ce qu’il te manque c’est l’inspiration, et surtout le passage à l’action.

Il m’a alors parlé d’imp!act, un évènement qui rassemble un groupe de jeunes pour s’éveiller ensemble aux enjeux sociétaux et passer à l’action de manière concrète.

Je n’ai pas réfléchi bien longtemps et j’ai signé.

Le jour 1 je ne savais pas trop à quoi m’attendre, je me retrouvais dans une salle avec une trentaine d’inconnus qui ne savent pas beaucoup mieux ce qu’ils font réellement ici.

Puis les facilitateurs prennent la parole et nous explique ce qu’est imp!act, ce qu’on fait là. Qu’on allait à travers des méthodes de développement personnel prendre conscience des combats pour lesquels on a envie de s’engager, et collectivement, créer des projets concrets, réalisables et pertinents pour répondre aux enjeux sociétaux…

Rien que ça me direz-vous, c’est ce qu’on s’est tous dit.

Mais on a accepté de lâcher prise, de nous laisser guider par cette équipe de facilitateurs.

Et devinez quoi ? Et bien ils avaient raison.

En seulement trois jours nous avons compris ce qui nous touchait vraiment personnellement, cette mission qui était en phase avec nos valeurs, nos passions et pour laquelle nous avions de réelles compétences à mettre à profit. Et avons développé des projets en découlant, particulièrement aboutis.

Plus important encore, nous avons créé une communauté inspirante d’acteurs du changement, et d’une bienveillance étonnante, qui continue de nous porter malgré nos retours respectifs au quotidien.

Je ne vous en dirai volontairement pas plus parce qu’il est important, pour vivre cette expérience, de se laisser guider au fur et à mesure en acceptant de ne rien prévoir ni anticiper.

Mais je vous invite vivement à vivre ces trois jours hors du temps qui, je vous assure, vous feront un bien incommensurable.

Signée, une personne regonflée à bloc et pleine de conviction pour le monde de demain à l’issu de la session Imp!act France Octobre 2018.

imp!act Île-de-France - des idées plein la tête

Photo groupe imp!act IdF - oct 2018.JPG

Revenir avec des idées plein la tête, des étoiles dans les yeux et le cœur chargé de bienveillance. Imp!act, c’est 3 jours et demi de partages et de coopération pour faire éclater ce qui, en nous, sommeille. Imp!act nous fait puiser dans nos ressources et nos moyens pour ensemble bâtir et construire, quelles que soient nos idées.

On peut arriver un peu chancelant, avec des idées éparpillées ou simplement des questions par milliers. Et, dès le début, le programme nous donne des clefs. Des nouvelles façons de communiquer, une sincérité aussi, qui nous permettent de partager.

Dans la coopération, on élabore et échafaude des projets, en agrégeant des idées, germées ça et là dans les têtes de chacun. On fait fusionner le tout et on s’aperçoit qu’on est capable de créer et de trouver des alternatives. On prend confiance dans notre capacité à générer de bonnes initiatives.

Et puis, vient l’heure des débats et des conseils. Après avoir ficelé le projet, il faut le moduler, le façonner, comme une pâte à modeler, l’agencer. Alors, on va sur le terrain et on expérimente, et, comme des apprentis, on tâtonne. On cultive le doute pour mieux avancer.

Et alors, ensemble, naît un projet, social, solidaire. Un projet qui répond à certains critères mais aussi, et surtout, à toutes nos envies de faire bouger, de changer, d’impacter.

Enfin, on revient avec encore plus d’énergies. On sait qu’en nous, résident les capacités pour changer et transformer, les petites choses (ou les grandes!) qui nous titillent et dérangent. On est propulsé, on est regonflé à bloc, prêts à affronter de grands défis, et à proposer des alternatives, à la force de nos envies et de notre solidarité.
