Coaching is important
 

I believe that coaching is  one of the most important positive  change agents of the 21st century.   I think it is more than a profession, it is an attitude, a way of life which carries with it a set of uplifting values and an open mindset. 

 

Coaches are part of a greater movement aiming at the betterment of the human condition,  igniting the potential within people and opening up a world of possibities for each person.

Coaching

My coaching style is fundamentally non-directive and I integrate various models and tools such as meta-coaching,  a systems approach, co-active coaching, neuro-logical levels somatic work and creativity so as to promote an  in-depth development of  human potential beyond the behavioural and competency levels.  Having grown up and worked in international environments, I am sensitive to cultural diversity and I integrate cross-cultural skills into my coaching style.  I am fluent in English, French and Italian and coach in the three languages.

Supervision

Supervision is a highly customized process, adapted to the needs of each individual coach.  Most supervision work is intuitive, based on what emerges in the coaching conversatio.   Nonetheless, I take inspiration from various supervision models to help you reflect deeply on your role as coach, your coaching attitude, your client and their environment.

Some well known supervision models developed by world-class practitioners and schorars are:

  • the 7-Eyed Model of Coaching Supervision (Hawkins and Schwenk), a systems approach the supports the exploration of all the relations and interactions present in a coaching engagement.

  • the 7 Conversations Model (Megginson and Clutterbuck) which allows you to deconstruct the coaching conversation and understand where the dialogue is most or least effective

  • the Person-centered approach (Rogers), which assumes that as a coach you naturally tend towards self-actualization and have all the resources within you to develop your coaching posture and skills to a level of excellence.
    Through supervision, you will become more aware of your interaction with your client, and you will improve the quality and impact of your coaching conversations.

Mentoring

Having an extensive and varied international professional experience  I can offer guidance,  contribute and share the expertise  I have acquired over many years in my areas of competence.
