Have you ever done a job that you hated?
We all have. That’s why we started Provolution. Because there are so many people out there who do jobs that they don’t enjoy! And we want to help!
Provolution was incorporated in Thailand in 2008, but it really began many years before.
in the late 1990’s, working in the corporate world, Mike and Koong both witnessed habits, routines, structures, attitudes and behaviours that seemed counter-productive to what the business wanted to achieve. It seemed almost as if the culture of business demanded those kinds of controls, the blame and shame and the carrot and stick approach. So many young minds had grown up in that system that, when they got to the top, they continued doing it.
In 1999, Mike was an HR Manager at Chiva-Som in Thailand. He employed a man named Dr. Bill Gould who had a program called “Transformational Thinking”. Dr. Bill taught Mike some revolutionary ideas, one of which was the most important lesson he would ever learn: There is no such things as a professional.
When you teach the person, you transform the professional. A happier, healthier, more energetic person at home, brings that to work. But a demotivated, unhappy, angry person at work, takes that home.
After Dr Bill’s passing in 2012, this simple idea drove Mike and Koong’s development of a new program we now call The We-Toia Project. This multi-faceted suite of personal skills is just as applicable to the business world as one’s private life.
No one should hate their job. No one should hate their life.
The story of Provolution is a story of skills and concepts that are focussed on happiness everywhere.
