Marie-Liesse believes it is possible to experience more joy in the corporate world, and that building resilience is in fact the foundation for a happier life, whatever the circumstances.
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.
She started her career in Paris as a management consultant for a couple of years, then spent more than 10 years in a multinational in Paris and Hong Kong in leadership positions in the area of Corporate Communications and Marketing. While she enjoyed being exposed to multi-cultural teams, complex organizations and cultural transformations, she was also trying to find a balance as a mother of 4 boys.
Having experienced the power of coaching in her corporate career, she decided to become an Executive Coach herself in 2015 when moving to Singapore. Since then, she has coached leaders and leadership teams from various industries across Asia, Europe and America.
As an Integral Coach, she brings a holistic approach to help her clients overcome their challenges and make changes in their lives by integrating mind, heart and body. Metaphorically speaking, she will not try to fix issues by simply moving pieces of furniture around in each room. However, along with her clients, she will try to understand why these issues exist by looking at the bigger picture and seeing in what ways the layout of the house might need adjustments.
She believes that trust and authenticity should be the core of the coaching relationship. This relationship must inspire a sense of confidence, enthusiasm, and excitement about the future in order for the journey to be successful.
As a facilitator, her style is full of positive energy, and she can spark engagement and connection with participants so they will embrace leadership skills in ways that are actionable and sustainable.
