Who we are

My experience and fields of interventions

SG1_3775

I’ve been a coach, trainer and facilitator for the past 14 years, working all over the world with people at all levels in diverse organizational and cultural contexts. My main domains of expertise are the quite closely related areas of knowledge transmission and team dynamics, and throughout all my work runs a red thread of supporting my clients’ leadership growth in creative ways.

Prior to being a consultant, I worked in SAFRAN group, a global player in Aeronautics, for 10 years, variously as a materials engineer, a purchaser and a project manager. It was during this time that I realized how much I appreciated co-creating knowledge and transmitting it, as the nature of the work calls for ongoing learning.

More specifically, I led a 2-year corporate project on Strategy Deployment and Managerial practices sharing, elaborated the company’s corporate values, designed the creativity and innovation system… These were key experiences with the freedom to explore, experiment, and co-create, which connected me with my passion for helping humans be…ing.

Socrates wrote that “education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel” and it’s that flame of learning, of curiousity, creative-thinking and questioning that I like to nurture in myself and others.

As a never-ending learner myself, I’m involved in Education on topics around leadership, creativity, project and change management. Specifically, I have been coordinating and teaching Organizational Behaviour at EDHEC Business School for 5 years and I am teaching on the Master of Change Management at Versailles Saint Quentin University.

My skills

I quickly become attuned to people I am interacting with and any particular situation at hand, and am skilful in choosing the one hat (or the many hats) that are needed to make a difference, taking into account both the current reality and any goals, whether implicit or expressed. I enjoy this most when I am working in complex and uncertain contexts.

With a gentle but firm energy, I am the kind of person who believes that the best is always possible, and I am skilful to hold the space for individuals and groups so they can evolve in the direction of their goals/dreams, while building on what is naturally emerging. When useful, I may provide resources to help the growth dynamics in many forms and shapes (various hats, tools and technics, models, frameworks of interpretations…).

My passions

Since I was an adolescent, I have always loved teaching as a way to continue to deepen my own learnings. Able to play with many fields, comfortable in various contexts, I particularly like to deal with unclear situations and questions, innovative and complex projects, and find my roles in such a context to create a path for individuals and groups around meaning and actions that matter for them.
Beyond my passion for community building, I have been compelled for a very long time by the Humanities, particularly when it comes to arts, philosophy and literature. I sing and write, and I’ve a passion about connecting the arts and science.

My diploma and certificates

Beyond my formal education:

  • Master 2 in Engineering from Grenoble Institute of Technology which I started in France and finished at McGill University (1991)
  • Master 2 MRH from Lille University (2002)
  • Master 2 of Research on Strategy, Management and Organizations (2006),
