Professional background

Originally from the US and currently based in Paris, France, Gabriel has spent over seventeen years living, studying and working in Western, Central, and Eastern Europe, He is fluent in French, Russian, Spanish and German, and conversant in Polish.

Before becoming a coach in 2014, Gabriel trained and worked as a mediator in various contexts. His experience in conflict resolution taught him that his energy might be better spent giving people the tools and skills to avoid the kind of inter-personal and work-related conflicts that he was mediating. This led him to the fields of coaching and Organization Development. Gabriel has coached leaders and teams in the fields of food and agriculture, energy, banking, e-commerce, real estate, luxury, fashion, pharmaceuticals and non-profits.

Coaching expertise

In addition to designing and facilitating leadership development workshops, Gabriel helps individuals and teams imagine and design their desired future and realize that shared vision via concrete projects and actions by uncovering and building upon what is best in themselves and in their individual and collective experiences. His positive and participatory approach to change is reflected in his preferred tools: Appreciative Inquiry, Non-Violent Communication, Immunity to Change and Liberating Structures, to name just a few. Underlying his approach and worldview are strong personal convictions, optimism and belief in the fundamental goodness of people.
