Noetic derives from the Greek adjective noētikos, meaning "intellectual," from the verb noein ("to think") and ultimately from the noun nous, meaning "mind." Noetic is related to noesis, the action of perceiving or thinking. Noetic is that "inner knowing"-- a kind of intuitive consciousness grounded in reason. This intuitive intelligence is core to our DNA.

It facilitates creativity, innovation, enthusiasm and learning. It ensures that the people who are Noetic feel supported, nurtured, challenged and connected. We believe a successful corporate culture begins with being conscious about institutionalizing, communicating and sharing our values, beliefs and themes.
