Developing the cohesion of Executives is a critical condition for maintaining the vision and commitment of the Executive Team and of all company managers. Executives are the role models of the company's dynamic - if they cooperate among themselves, company managers cooperate. However it can be " lonely at the top." It is often more difficult to talk about personal leadership challenges with the CEO or General Manager than to talk to peers or employees.

Creating leader communities, especially in complex business contexts, positively impacts the leadership culture, gives way to cooperation, and provides the opportunity for each executive to develop and grow in his own leadership capabilities along with his colleagues.
You understand that the cohesion and coherence of your executives is a critical condition for maintaining the vision and commitment of the executive committee and of all managers.
You know that the manner in which your executives cooperate will also impact the cooperation between teams. Executives are the "role models" of the leadership and cooperation dynamic that they want spread throughout the company.
And, you know that executives can experience real solitude - "it's lonely at the top." It can be just as difficult to talk about personal leadership challenges with the president or director general, as it is to talk to peers or employees.
To respond to these challenges, we create and facilitate "leader communities" within large Groups which, in complex and uncertain business situations, become a condition of high-performance.
This intense experience, facilitated by our senior coaches, creates deep and meaningful relationships between executives who dare to open up to each other and grow together.
The sessions continue over time, allowing cooperation and camaraderie to flourish within the Group : instead of viewing a co-executive as a competitor, I see him as a partner, with his strengths and weaknesses, and who, like myself, is trying his best to develop his business and teams.
This process allows the creation of a leadership development dynamic in the executive committee and allows the leadership culture of the whole organization to evolve.
- Reflection and conception of a "leader community" plan
- Implementation of a communication strategy vis-à-vis the executives
- Coaching of individuals and small groups of leaders
- Facilitation of events and special meetings with other leaders, artists, and philosophers
