The wise man doesn't give the right answers, he poses the right questions. Claude Levi-Strauss

This is what guided my journey of "operational leader" and designed my activity as it is today, brought on by a 12 years + experience as a hands-on manager in support function and cross functional projects.
With an Executive Master of Business Administration and a Master of Engineering in local development focusing on the systemic approach applied to the sociology of organizations, I combine the best of both human and organizational worlds.

Working abroad, on various sites and, within businesses in transformation in Africa makes change the only constant and invited me to consider the unexpected as a source of opportunity and creativity.

As such, I made a correlation between the autonomy of the staff, our evolving targets and an enhanced risk management.
The collabor’actors of an organization are its best assets, but the key is to identify the best management system for the organization and its environment.

Making you autonomous enough to transform your organization is my goal. Emphasizing the strengths and dynamics of your organization will be the key performance indicators. The personalization given to your projects will insure success.

"Nothing can be built without a diagnosis as accurate as possible, but above all, mostly accepted by all the stakeholders of the company!" Anthony Riboud

In other words:
✪ Soak up your environment and assess your impartiality before acting
✪ Involve the stakeholders impacted by your decisions: shareholders, top & middle management, staff, partners (business and trade unions), customers, suppliers.

The "Imp'Act" approach allows you to address urgent or important issues from a new perspective: by weighing your attitudes, actions and their direct, indirect and induced effects.
What are the impacts? Positive or negative, they are real. Is the content, or the style of the decision relevant?

Self-employed, I will be your contact throughout your evolution.

Corporate leader, in order to focus more on your business development, you need to:
✪ Increase your risk management control in emergency–like situations or through exponential growth
✪ Evaluate the cost of inaction to anticipate possible issues in case of a status quo
✪ Develop methods that promote staff’s autonomy

Examples of missions:
✪ Coaching Subsidiary managers’: Unlock individual talents and collective intelligence within the local organization as both are assets in complex situation with multiple actors;
✪ Implementation of a suitable operational mode: a contextualized approach tailored to the country or the region, the level of business development and local partners;
✪ Coaching Managers’: process analysis and activity’s valuation reflected in the collective and individual performance system adapted to the environment.

Contact me for a "diagnosis" call to assess the current situation within your organization.
