I have grown and developed in a world of great difference and diversity. I was born and raised in a communist country before moving to Paris where I studied drama and went on to found and own a highly successful drama school (as well as becoming a prime-time sitcom star).
Building on this experience of marrying the creative and the business like, I went to the UK to train in leadership development, obtaining a Masters in Organisational Change from Ashridge Business School, one of the world’s premier schools in the field of complex organizational leadership and change.
My mission when working with individuals and teams is find a way to connect to people’s inherent creative energy and lessen the burdens of responsibility that come with taking on senior roles. I believe that it is possible to bring lightness (even playfulness!) into a business world that can crush itself with seriousness. I help my clients stay authentic and to lead and live successfully in an ever changing and often turbulent environment.
You are successful yet sometimes feel overwhelmed by how much you must manage in your life.
You need support and a confidential thinking partner. Someone who can tune into your life and who won’t judge or leap in with naïve solutions. Someone who will listen and help you listen to yourself.
You may want to be an inspiring and effective leader.
You may have just taken over a new position and need to look again at how you have led in the past – and consider what you need to do a bit more or a bit less of.
You may want your organisation or team to implement a new strategy or structure so that it makes a real difference to performance.
You may simply want to be your best at work and your most content in your private life. And need someone who is independent of both to help you see the wood from the trees.
Sometimes you have the energy to deal with everything, other times your motivation just isn’t there.
Sometimes you find yourself getting stressed by things you usually deal with ease.
You might have come to a point where your life looks great to the outside world – but not to you. You feel something’s missing but can’t quite put your finger on it.
You may be finding that there is an imbalance to your life that used not to matter, but now you want to change.
You know you need to learn how to set some boundaries, put yourself first when it matters and be less concerned about the immediate well-being of others. You want to change but do not know exactly how to do it.
You are looking for a good coach who could help you find out what you really want and then help you grow into it.
