Marie-Liesse believes it is possible to experience more joy in the corporate world, and that building resilience is the foundation for a happier life.
After 17 years in corporate life and having experienced the power of effective coaching, she has decided to focus on helping people navigate their corporate environments in order to leverage their potential while fulfilling deeper aspirations.
As an Integral Coach, Marie-Liesse brings a holistic approach to help her clients overcome their challenges and make changes by integrating mind, heart and body. She develops personalised programs alongside her clients with an overall purpose and a set of measurable outcomes. She helps clients reach long-term excellence, which means that they become both self-correcting and self-generating. Beyond helping her clients in key areas such as communication, stakeholder influence and stress management, she believes the coaching relationship must inspire a sense of confidence, enthusiasm and excitement about the future in order for the journey to be successful. She works with leaders from Asia, Europe and the US across various industries.
Her facilitation style is full of positive energy and she can spark engagement and connection with participants so they can embrace resilience in ways that are actionable and sustainable.
Marie-Liesse started her career as a management consultant and then spent over 10 years in leadership positions at Danone in Paris and Hong Kong in the Corporate Communications and Marketing departments. While she enjoyed being exposed to multi-cultural teams, complex organisations and cultural transformations, she was also trying to find a balance as a mother of four boys.
She holds a Masters in Economics and Human Resources from Sciences Po Paris (France) and in European Studies from Sussex University (UK). She is a certified Integral Coach from ICF accredited New Ventures West and is an associate of Emergenetics. Convinced by the Resilience model, she is walking the talk and finds flow through yoga and mindfulness as well as constantly growing through learning new concepts and practices (most recently in the field of Appreciative Inquiry).
