The newest and fastest growing of our services at The LAB. Leveraging our experience of the past decade we offer research and consultancy services to areas of the organisation that deal with change and leadership practice. Examples of projects include the review and design of corporate wellbeing programs, organisational development and re-structuring with a focus on talent management, and healthy building design consultancy where we work with both the architect and management to design improved experiences for both employees and clients.
We also partner with leading global organisations on collaborative research and feed those insights into our core services. Please get in touch if you want to discuss any aspect of research and consultancy.
Custom programs are the core of our professional development delivery in which we work with clients to design the optimal leadership development experience. We leverage content delivered in the world's best ranked custom programs at schools including IESE, IMD, IE and CEIBS while our delivery team ensure a world-class program experience. Our programs vary in duration from 1-day to 1-week with many of our clients opting for several modules throughout the year to fully develop their leadership teams. Our programs either take place at our offices in Barcelona, the client site, or in other select locations that offer the very best facilities such as Universitas Telefónica for our UT·LAB programs detailed below together with other sample content.

We span the three business units at The LAB; healthLAB, designLAB and societyLAB to provide a truly holistic approach which moves from a deep understanding of the self to understanding your relationship with the world at large. Once we know and can manage ourselves, we take a look at others – social awareness and our relationships. Looking at the big picture and our impact on society allows us to examine purpose in life. It is ideological and practical at the same time. We specifically focus on actions and really doing the things we want to get done. This philosophy is guided by the following principles:
This is not about fixing – you are creative, resourceful and whole.
We have the questions. Only you have the answers.
We target making conscious, intentional and mindful choices.
Follow-through and implementation is key. We link choices to action.
All coaching relationships are strictly private and confidential.
We start by taking a look at your needs and your levels of satisfaction in all areas of your life. We typically include: friends & family, significant other, personal growth, fun & leisure, home environment, career, personal growth, career, money and (of course) health! We will often use a tool, such as the wheel of life, to assess this and then the coaching process will focus on the areas of your life where you feel that improvements can or need to be made. Other tools such as design thinking and behavioural science allow us to gain insight into your present life and make changes that stick.
