"Light the way, a little like a lantern, leaving everyone free to make their own choices
with the best possible understanding of the environment, the options available and the
meaning. That's how I see my job".

Motivated by people at work, I have dedicated myself since 2016 to helping teams, organisations and companies achieve their objectives, with a focus on setting up collaborative structures that are respectful, sustainable and effective in the long term.

Co-creator of companies in consulting and design, member of several boards of directors, lecturer at HEC Lausanne, I use my training and these various experiences to facilitate the emergence of solutions during my business facilitations.

Coach managers, employees, job-seekers (or those returning to the world of work) and students, for almost 20 years I have been helping the men and women who trust me to identify and achieve their goals, to establish their approach to work-life balance or to realize their transition career path, whether desired or undergone.

Having had the chance to participate in the finalisation of the Team Alignment Map method (www.teamalignment.co), it has become one of the methods I use in my interventions in companies, together with Madeleine Laugeri's approach to emergent change (www.changementemergent.ch) and the use of psychological profiles (www.insights.com).

Trained in coaching , AT and NLP, I also use the principles of strategic therapy (Palo Alto) to open up the field of possibilities as much as possible in my individual coaching.

Facilitating the identification of personal or team goals and designing the strategy to achieve them. Supporting the establishment of respectful and collaborative environments and the execution of the chosen strategy to achieve the desired results.
