Her management experience as an entrepreneur enables her to understand the challenge her clients face and assist them in generating insights and commitment for positive behavioural changes.

Coaching expertise

The common thread running through Sophie Poitrineau’s professional career is the development of managers and their postures, managerial skills, motivational levers, emotional intelligence, etc. The story begins with an initial training qualification in behavioural management.

Then, in the 2000s, in order to enhance her impact and provide better support for change, she added coaching to her practice. It was her experience in China that gave her the opportunity to strengthen her approach by obtaining WABC coaching certification. After her return to Europe, she completed this certification with that issued by ICF.

Sophie Poitrineau is deeply passionate about people and the managerial challenges facing today’s leaders. Coaching is a way for her to contribute her bit to the edifice, to humbly participate in the construction of a new world that is being revealed before our very eyes every day.
