A certified executive and team coach, I have devoted my entire professional life to supporting leaders, managers and teams to define and achieve their professional goals.
My coaching principles
Systemic coaching originates in the research led by Gregory Bateson at the Palo Alto Mental Reseach Insitute in the 1950s, and was later developed by Paul Watzlawick, Don D. Jackson and John Weakland as Brief Therapy. This powerful problem-solving approach reached the business world in the 1980s.
The systemic and strategic approach has several characteristics which meet the requirements of professional leadership coaching:
On these premises, I have built my practice on 4 systemic principles:
I firmly believe that all behaviours make sense when observed through a contextual lens, and that all behavioural change occurs through changes in relational patterns. My coaching and consulting experience help me to quickly understand my coachees' professional environment and to help them develop their ability to understand and navigate their organisation's implicit rules.
Finding the right dosage of support and challenge at each moment of the coaching relationship is a collaborative art. My relational posture is of course guided by my professional coach training and my ethical principles, but it is, above all, the outcome of active and constant adaptation to my coachees' needs. My questioning will not be the same when a person needs to be supported with a difficult emotion and when they are ready for change.
All behaviours are communication material, whether verbal or non-verbal. Deciphering behavioural patterns or feedback often involves moving away from jargon or polite euphemisms. My communication style goes as far as using the linguistic gap between French and English to bring a French touch of humour to my coaching conversations.
My coachees all have remarkable intellectual and analytical abilities. When explanation and rational understanding suffice to solve their challenges, they do not need coaching. It is precisely when these cognitive resources reach their limits that coaching becomes valuable. Whether individually, with peers or with their teams, I take my coachees though relational and emotional experiences to help them reframe the limiting emotions and beliefs that stand in their way to success.
Cécile is a jewel! She quickly understood where I wanted to go and found the best way to help me get there, asking what the best style was for me and matching that. Her questions were always supportive and challenging at the same time and they really made me think. It was a really precious experience for me.

Group coaching is all about discovering you are not alone as a leader…. And who better than peers to help you out with candid, genuine and experience-based feedback.

Cécile coached our team with great listening and a real understanding of our challenges. Her professional experience is a great asset to adapt to all profiles. Thank you for your precious help.

Taking a step back, seeing the big picture, slowing and cooling down, gave me the serenity and self-confidence I needed to address all the challenges of my professional life. I told my leadership team colleagues how beneficial our coaching sessions were on a personal level and how much they resonated with our daily lives. I therefore encouraged them to contact you so that they too could benefit from coaching with you.

I had the pleasure of being coached by Cécile in 2021. My coaching clearly achieved its goal and did me a lot of good. Cécile is a highly experienced, reliable and trustworthy coach, with a great level of empathy. Questions, comments and sometimes advice were always relevant and timely. Cécile was able to both walk along my initial thoughts and push me much further than I would have thought possible. I highly recommend her professional support!
