Emmanuelle believes that the true self is the best self, and that the foundational principle to meaningful relationships is honesty. She also believes leadership matters. Her vocation as a coach emerged with her desire to promote the power of authenticity in leadership.

Everything can be taken from a person but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.

Professional background

Emmanuelle started her career as an HR professional with a keen interest in developing individual as well as team potential. Her time at General Electric provided her with her first leadership opportunities while giving her insights in the central importance of culture in driving performance, and the need to balance short term priorities with longer term people development goals. Within the competitive commodity-based packaging business of Pechiney, leading HR teams across Europe, she dealt with divestments as well as acquisitions and learned that, regardless of the nature of the challenges, there is no more relevant leadership skill than relationship building. Joining LVMH & the luxury industry, she transformed talent acquisition & development practices while gaining greater systems awareness in navigating ambiguity and complexity.

Coaching expertise

Of both French and American nationality, Emmanuelle’s HR career reflected the need to reconcile her dual heritage. In coaching, she not only found the opportunity to more fully express the variety of her perspectives to the benefit of her clients but also to wholeheartedly align her values with her work. Her practice is balanced between individual coaching, team coaching and the design as well as facilitation of leadership development programs. She has supported individuals in redefining their purpose, increasing their personal impact, influencing effectively, communicating assertively and managing stakeholders. She has supported teams in building trust, leveraging feedback, co-constructing their vision and improving their operating mechanisms. She has created and led highly praised leadership programs that have become the cornerstone of our clients’ talent development roadmap.
