Lionel has been working with my consulting company Pergamon for nearly 3 years—his analytical skills, experience and kindness have enabled me to unblock many complex situations, and to radically increase the skills of my management team. Lionel excels in individual coaching as well as in the collective coaching of an entire management team.
Egon Zehnder: Consultant in recruitment and leadership
I found this coaching method quite rich, as it was based on the Tree of Life which is a very powerful tool derived from narrative practices. From the very first session we started formulating concrete objectives. I was attracted by the visual and written dimension of the approach which corresponds to my mode of integration and appropriation. I also found the sequential approach strong with its successive steps that make sense when they are all put together. I liked the introspective phase, doing the exercise on my own first, to see what came naturally and, conversely, the grey areas as well. It was very revealing in the end with the questions I had to ask myself. The Tree of Life really helped us to structure the discussion and to table the subjects.

LSA Courtage: Managing Director
I was lucky enough to develop, evolve and mature in the same company, during 8 very rich years. Wishing to prepare the next phase, I felt the need to take stock and give myself the means to project myself. All I had to do was find the guide who would carry out a multi-rater performance review on me. It quickly became clear to me that Lionel, who had already interviewed me for other such performance reviews, should accompany me. Lionel is more than just a coach: he has the intelligence and finesse of the great HRDs, as well as experience with careers in organisations. He never uses force: he creates a framework of trust and creativity, conducive to deep introspection. Corporate executives are paid to solve urgent problems all day long, and Lionel is there to help us find solutions and refocus on what is essential, by taking us out of our personal and professional caves. He knows how to be firm when faced with an unfinished action plan or insufficiently precise success criteria, and he provides complete, tailor-made, uncompromising but always generous support, favouring introspection, openness and exchange. I was particularly impressed by the Tree of Life exercise which allows us to rationalise emotions and behaviours in business, very often linked to our education, our origins and our chance meetings. This was for me the keystone of this coaching which required an intense personal commitment on my part. For the rest, I just had to let myself be guided by Lionel ...

I met Lionel when I arrived in France to undertake my job search, at the peak of the COVID pandemic. I needed to regain my self-confidence, the use of my assets and qualities, both professional and personal, so as to better adapt and understand the functioning of the professional market in France. From the very first session, Lionel was able to put me at ease in a calm, sensitive, well-dosed manner. With no judgement on his part, our exchanges quickly enabled me to better understand my personal functioning and to overcome my fears and doubts. Lionel is authentic, complete and flexible as a coach and a mentor: he puts his heart into each session and perfectly masters the codes of the professional environment.
