Productivity through well-being: adequate proportions of challenge, purpose, personal relationships, positive emotions and space to bring one’s own strengths into play.
Motivation through protagonism: confidence and courage to make decisions, the awareness of being able to contribute a differential value in all situations through authenticity and personal strengths.
Commitment, which emerges from connection with a purpose; the true raison d’être of each individual, team and organization, which translates into a positive impact on people and society.
Collaboration, developed from a better understanding of diversity, of the functioning of personal relationships and of leadership understood as a relationship of mutual influence.
Results. Because what we call success is nothing but a consequence of what we do every day, in every conversation, in every decision.

The similarities between Regina Estévez and Regino Quirós go much further than their names.
- Both have learned, thanks to their experience in large multinationals, that outstanding results can only be achieved by fostering people’s development.
- Both are convinced that the future is shaped by the decisions we make every day, and both know that these decisions need to be aligned around a shared vision and a shared goal for people and organisations to perform to the best of their ability.
- Both firmly believe that well-being is the most important factor for ensuring good productivity. And when we talk about well-being, we are not talking about being less demanding, but rather about ensuring the right mix of challenge, purpose, personal relationships, positive emotions and the space necessary for developing each individual’s unique strengths.
- Both also feel that a leader’s responsibility is to create a context in which everyone in the organisation can become the best version of themselves. Businesses only develop by developing the people that enable them to exist.
- Regina and Regino both have intensely inquiring minds. This has prompted them to engage in continuous training in a wide range of different fields, including neuroscience applied to business, emotional management, positive psychology, the development and application of strengths at work and a plethora of company culture diagnosis and transformation instruments.

Wave 8 is a Leadership and Business Culture consultancy.
We design and execute personal leadership-, team leadership- and organizational leadership programs, adapted to the needs of each client and their moment in time, facilitating the necessary development or transformation.
We help leaders to design and develop the business culture that fortifies their strategy and to implant the required behaviour of the desired culture.
We work individually with leaders who need to evolve in some aspect, through executive coaching programs based on a proprietary methodology that provides results in a short period of time and is based on the strengths of the leader.
Companies are the backbone of our society. Their ability to impact people is enormous. But companies are nothing more than the people who form part of it.
Only with absolute focus on people can impact be positive. And that impact must begin by involving the topmost echelons of the company, thus creating a ripple effect throughout the organisation.
Success and sustainability depend on that impact.
Develop people to develop business. Develop business to develop a better society. Starting with the development of the leaders.
Great results are only the consequence.
At Wave 8 we believe that possibilities for action emerge from deep reflection and that seizing these possibilities is a formula for success.
We accompany leaders and their teams in times of transition, facilitating reflection on what should remain and what should be changed or incorporated, seeking the best version of each person in each circumstance.
We create contexts that facilitate self-knowledge, reflection, the design of a desired future and the decision-making to achieve it. Building on more than ten years’ experience in leadership development and corporate culture management we have developed our own methodologies which we adapt to each situation.
We believe in people and their ability to transform and transform themselves.
We believe in what we do because we do what we are.
