■■ The ActionTypes® Approach or ATA
ActionTypes® is neither a tool nor a method! It is first and foremost an approach that seeks to contribute to the harmonious development of the unique identity of each human being. It is more of a philosophy that considers that it is better to value individuals by highlighting their intrinsic strengths rather than burdening them with “what’s wrong”. By looking primarily at the “light side of strength”, we naturally enter into a rewarding world, full of resources and often untapped potential. Once discovered, the first effects are quickly felt, especially in terms of increased self-confidence. Little by little, the person learns to welcome himself, first by chasing away any judgment he might have, then, by becoming aware of the whole range of what is possible at the level of his individuation. The approach thus actively participates in helping the person find “his element”, according to Sir Ken Robinson; that is to say the context in which he can express himself and blossom.

Published by Amphora in Paris and written by Bertrand Théraulaz and Ralph Hippolyte, the 800-page full-color book is available since April 29, 2021 in french for the time being (english translation on its way). This book required several years of work and is a reference for practitioners, an interactive “bible” so to speak, to be enriched by the exchanges of the community. It reflects more than 30 years of empirical researches lead by the two co-founders that have been validated since by thousands of sports users, coaches, leaders, parents…
The https://actiontypes.org/ website allows you to inform your partners, clients and prospects of the quality of the approach, the multiple facets of its application and the tremendous possibilities it opens up.
