Testimonials from the workshop of 5 & 6 December 2015

"The generosity of Xavier and Julie made this session deep, cheerful, authentic and, most importantly, empowering. I have seen deep changes in participants in less than 48 hours. I fel myself resourced, equipped with a lot of innovative coaching tools to manage people in line with my human-centered management approach."

"I came to the workshop not knowing what to expect as the topic was quite new to me. It turned out to be very engaging, participative and also intellectually enriching. I definitely left much more empowered, inspired and motivated to face the challenges ahead. I look forward to participating in other workshops with Julie & Xavier."

What is Coaching Leadership?

Coaching Leadership is a style of “servant leadership” which aims at leading through the development of other individuals such as team members, colleagues and partners. Within corporations and organizations, Coaching Leadership is particularly suited for complex environments where matrix-based responsibilities and volatile teams make it difficult for individuals to have long-lasting impact and reach their professional goals. Within such environments, influencing/lobbying is equally important as driving and Coaching Leadership accomplishes both. Coaching Leaders are also highly suited for facilitator roles as they drive participants to formulate a solution on their own rather than advise them to follow a particular direction. Last, Coaching Leaders are transformative in nature. They create powerful transformational relationships with other individuals, giving them a very effective approach to scale their vision and co‐create a common future.
