During the first half of his career, when he was a marketing and sales executive, Philippe came to the conclusion that while leaders must possess functional and business expertise, real and lasting success is invariably rooted in deep self awareness, paired with the ability to express one’s true intentions in a way that is understandable and acceptable to others. As he managed and developed business and teams, he noted over and over again that those who connect with their true nature succeed more sustainably than those who don’t. He also realized that the biggest challenge managers and leaders face today is to develop their skills to address the human side of their business. He felt that much less support, and much less effective support, is typically available to address the “soft” elements of leadership.
Philippe then decided to shift from operational management to leadership development and executive coaching. He developed this new skill set both through professional courses and through hands-on experience. His mission is to help people and organizations connect with their true nature and express it skillfully and successfully.
Philippe believes strongly that leaders lead more through their day to day decisions and behaviors and interaction with others than through their statements. Better knowing themselves and the intentions behind their behaviors, and aligning those with the vision and the strategy of the company generates a dynamic for positive change.
