Focusing on the difference you want to make


Over the past 25 years, I have had the opportunity to learn and grow with my clients in a wide variety of projects. My focus has been on mastering the art of leading useful interactions and developing an ever more flexible, connected and refreshing way of supporting teams and individuals through change.

Designing Journeys

In collaboration with the I2A Network, I support organisations and teams in growing their leadership competencies by designing 9-12 month development journeys. The focus of these journeys is on raising the leader’s consciousness of their effectiveness and on authentically fostering good team collaboration to achieve sustainable results.

As a leader in such a programme, you take full accountability for your own leadership development. Based on your Leadership Circle Profile, you define the difference you want to notice, participate in a series of interactive Labs with colleagues and use the opportunities that emerge in your every day environment to experiment. By exchanging and supporting each other through this programme, the team inevitably creates an ever more deliberate development culture.

Facilitating Transitions

I support teams by facilitating useful interactions that ensure a smooth transition from the current position to the future state. I do this by cultivating an atmosphere that fosters flexibility, accountability and eagerness to experiment.

To enable your transition, I carefully navigate the language that enhances useful change and that helps you focus on the desired difference you want to make. This work varies based on the team’s objectives: I have worked on transitioning from   one way of working to another, adapting to a fast growing team and roles, finding better ways of collaborating in a divided team, and many more. I also work with Leadership Teams who wish to reflect on their leadership effectiveness and engage in developing their capabilities together.

Training & Coaching

My approach is interactive, experimental and closely linked to each individual’s daily activities. Every case is unique and I carefully design each facilitation or training based on the sustainable difference it should make for you.

I have developed a series learning paths for clients that are linked to online learning solutions. These have covered topics such as career development, collaboration and solution-focused communication.

When a more individualized coaching or a conflict mediation is needed, I can gladly support you in accelerating your development progress or in building better collaborations.

Discovering the Solution-Focused approach in 2005 has fundamentally transformed the way I support leaders and organisations, across all cultures. My encounter with the Leadership Circle in 2018 had a very similar effect and both approaches enrich each other beautifully. Most of my work is offered in English, in an international environment.  I am French Canadian and speak fluent German and Spanish with some basic knowledge of Italian and Japanese.

The Leadership Circle

In collaboration with an extensive network of certified Leadership Circle practitioners, known as the I2A Network, we work closely with The European Leadership Circle Team and offer customised journeys for leaders across a variety of industries.  You can contact us to do your Leadership Profile 360°, the debrief and follow up coaching sessions if you are interested. We have professionals in the network speaking all European languages. You can find out more about the Leadership Circle Model here.
