As an International Leadership and Executive Coach, member of the International Coaching Federation and PCC credentialed, with over 20 years of international experience, I help managers and leaders strengthen their leadership and intercultural competencies, evolve with serenity in a global environment, run theirs lives with more meaning, be more inspirational, and have more impact on others. I hold a MSc in International Business Administration (ESCP Business School) and professional certificates in Professional Coaching, Facilitation, Mediation and Positive Psychology. I coaches in English, French and German, online and in person.
Grounded in openness, authenticity, positivity and creativity, I have developed a coaching approach inspired by evidence-based methods and practices, in particular Positive Psychology and Appreciative Inquiry. My approach to coaching sharpens your understanding for your functions, strengths and talents, ensures value-based decision making and promotes the emergence and reinforcement of successful leadership practices. Coaching focused on intercultural competencies inspires more effectiveness in multicultural diversified teams in both home and foreign country settings. Powerful keys to ensure a thriving work experience and reach a higher level of happiness!
What clients wrote about me:
“Lionel was very supportive and instrumental in helping me find clarity in order to make strategic decisions. His global approach and international experience together with his great ability to listen and to set a unique space and environment provided me with the benefit of being able to work through new ideas and face new challenges.”
“Lionel has been able to coach me through the tensions of corporate political life. He could support me retain the sense of my own strengths and where I am wanting to be. Lionel has a quality of kindness, as well as pragmatism which helps one acknowledge a state of affairs, and then to move on where one can. He could understand the multicultural aspects of my own biography. I find his approach is one which respects an open minded and “environment-aware” style, which is more free and respectful than a more directive coaching style which can be more typical in executive coaching models.”
“Lionel is a strong and empathic listener, with a pragmatic understanding of work and life commitments. His executive corporate experience, academic background together with his multicultural life means he has a rich field to draw upon in understanding any situation and finding the pertinent questions to help you move forward. Lionel is flexible, optimistic, has a good sense of humour, and truly does act as a champion for you.”
“Lionel helped me recognize my inner strength and I am now on the right way becoming a better myself. In addition to his rich international business experience and excellence, Lionel’s modesty and curiosity in his client makes him a very good communicator. He is a pretty good listener, though he also throws sharp questions towards you in order to help you see clearer.”
International Executive and Leadership Coach with over 20 years of continuous international experience in France, UK, Germany and Japan, MSc in International Business Administration, former career in management controlling and doctoral candidate in organizational leadership studies.
Expertise in cross-cultural and leadership coaching.
French national, I have been living and working half of my life outside of my home country, mainly in the UK, Germany and Japan. I started my career as an investment controller in a large international group, before going back to university to run research projects around leadership in organizations. There I discovered coaching, which became a passion and my new profession. I have been building my coaching business successfully, focusing mainly on leadership and intercultural topics. I love helping and empowering people to reach the goals they set as their coach, their partner.
Coaching has been for me a life-changing journey connecting my professional background anchored in practice and theory with communication skills and self-awareness, flexibility and diversity to support great individuals and teams to shine towards their best selves. I am always amazed and glad to notice the profound changes happening in my clients and the positive impact on their person, team and family.
