If there's one thing I have learned from Aararat, it's that it doesn't matter how educated you are, how brilliant your new product, or how exemplary your service to your customers, nobody is going to be really successful until they learn how to put people before profits.
Aararat taught me that without prioritizing the importance of meeting the needs of my people first, I couldn't reasonably expect my people to be motivated to wanting to look after the needs of my company.
There was an epiphany of sorts for me when I realized that it doesn't matter how hard I work. What's going to make all the difference is when I recognize that it's ultimately going to be my people, not me, who are going to make my company a thriving success.

Aararat doesn't "teach" prosperity - prosperity just follows when business people put into practice what Aararat "does" teach… and that is how to make a difference in your employees lives, who then in turn will want to make a positive difference for your business. When I began to put energy, emotion and effort into my people, they began to put energy, emotion and effort back into me. The turning point in my outlook on success occurred when Aararat showed me how the secret for caring about my people, was "caring" about my people

Aararat Consulting has created a training program, which when applied and embraced, won't just transform a company, it will transform lives.

Dr. Orieux is a rare commodity in corporate training, in that his focus is truly about getting EVERYONE to get along. I have attended countless training seminars over the years where the trainer is heavily tainted by managerial nepotism, which is futile because you'll never get employees to buy into any training that devalues the contribution of the subordinates.
I have never seen a corporate model for synergy as balanced as what Dr. Orieux and his associates at Aararat have, presenting the needs of the company as well as the needs of the workers, without favoring one at the expense of the other.
No wonder our employees walked away just as inspired and motivated as our managers.

As a senior administrator, I've taken management courses for almost 25 years, so when my boss (who'd taken training with Dr. Orieux before) said we'd learn a lot, I was very sceptical. Was I ever wrong! What really impressed me the most was how much Dr. Orieux obviously respects his employees and goes out of his way to help them realize how valuable they are to his company, and much he appreciates them, and his training has helped me to see that my boss has this same kind of heart for us.

I couldn't have imagined how much our team could become so united in just three days. Our resolve for synergy has become fortified because Dr. Orieux presented a model for team-building that we all believe we can achieve. He inspired us to believe in ourselves.
