Our Values


We all have the ability and responsibility to make a positive difference in the world. With a relentless belief in human potential, we strive to improve the wellbeing of people on every team so that they can contribute their best selves at work, at home, and in their communities.


We know that breakthrough results are possible when we are courageous, have a growth mindset, explore new ideas, and strive for continuous improvement. We specialize in creative thinking techniques that enable us to see every challenge as an opportunity and to bring out the creative thinking superpowers inherent in every team.

We practice RADICAL LOVE

We believe that health and wellness have a direct impact on a person’s (and team’s!) productivity, happiness and performance. We believe we all have a responsibility to create and sustain healthy workplaces and communities, and that doing so is an act of love. We practice gratitude daily, and believe in letting the people in our lives know they are appreciated. Our partners, clients and team members are all valued members of our community.


We believe strongly in collective potential; whether collaborating remotely or in person, we are bigger than the sum of our parts. That’s why we see our clients as partners, who we engage and include in everything we do, knowing that everyone benefits from collaboration, open communication, and the skills and experience of our whole team.


We know that we have some big, audacious goals, and we refuse to let fear of risk and the unknown get in our way. We believe in challenging the status quo with creativity and visionary thinking, and we applaud and support our partners and team members as they work towards their own ambitious dreams.

The Meaning of "Neolé"

The word Neolé is a combination of Neo + Olé. ‘Neo’ stands for new/original and Olé is a Spanish expression that is shouted out loud when something or someone makes a strong impression or makes a positive impact on the audience.

Ginny Santos


CEO, Neolé

Ginny Santos works primarily with organizations that truly care about their people and want a healthy workplace culture that enables and sustains high performance. That’s why she founded Neolé, a training, facilitation and event production company that specializes in designing and facilitating team development and retreats that make a lasting impact— resulting in increased engagement, productivity and retention, and most importantly, a healthy workplace culture.

Everything she does is influenced by her drive to have a positive impact, and the practical skills and knowledge she developed while completing a Master’s of Science in Creativity and Change Leadership and several graduate certificates in Solution-Focused Coaching, Nutrition Sciences and Productive Thinking. Ginny is also a professor at Wilfrid Laurier University where she teaches creativity and innovation to executive MBA students.

Originally from Spain, she is an entrepreneurial mother, a digital geek and an enthusiastic dancer in the privacy of her kitchen.
