Pourquoi la musique peut-elle améliorer la performance de votre équipe

« La musique donne une âme à nos cœurs et des ailes à la pensée », disait Platon. 99% des Français écoutent de la musique, mais seuls 22% d’entre eux ont une pratique musicale, selon une étude de la SACEM de 2014. Il n’est alors pas étonnant que son potentiel soit si peu maîtrisé : près de 80% des managers ne savent pas […]

La France, terre d’entrepreneuriat au féminin ?

Sur 100 créateurs d’entreprise, 36 sont des femmes. Et 12,6% des entrepreneuses comptent plus de deux employés au sein de leur société. Des entreprises plutôt unipersonnelles, dans des activités de service à plus ou moins forte valeur ajoutée, ne permettant pas à toutes leurs créatrices de générer des revenus pertinents pour vivre… En France, nous sommes donc encore loin de […]

Women and Minorities Are Penalized for Promoting Diversity

Roughly 85% of corporate executives and board members are white men. This number hasn’t budged for decades, which suggests that white men are continuing to select and promote other white men.
