Unleash your potential
Applying expertise in neuroscience and emotional intelligence to coaching for greater fulfilment and performance
Thriving and performing
I am a professional executive coach accredited by the Association for Coaching with more than ten years of proven results in coaching and facilitation.
I work as a leadership, culture change and career coach/facilitator to help clients thrive and deliver. Both are highly interconnected as finding fulfilment and performance at work starts with being in the right job to unlock potential.
I combine traditional coaching techniques with my expertise in neuroscience and emotional intelligence as well as 20 years of senior-level operational business experience to deliver long-lasting change.
I have nearly 2,000 hours of coaching with approximately 300 clients names. Clients range from C Suites and BU teams to CEOs, directors and managers in FTSE 100 companies, SMEs and start-ups across a wide range of sectors in the UK, France and abroad. I work with brands such as LVMH, Shell, Tesco, The NHS, The United Nations, PWC, Endel and graduates from UK universities and the French Oxbridge equivalent HEC and L’Ecole Polytechnique to name a few.
leadership and culture change coaching/facilitation
As an employee, a manager or a leader, you have to continuously adapt to new situations, new strategic and operational expectations, conflicting priorities and demands. It can feel relentless, ineffective, isolating and stressful. The recent pandemic made it worse.
To perform, you need clarity, focus and resilience. This direction comes from the leadership. To collectively create and deliver, you also need strong relationships. They are the result of behaviour based culture that align and engage employees; so everyone thrive, grow and perform.
I offer coaching, facilitation and webinars/talks to organisations, teams and individuals. I mostly work in culture, mindsets and behaviours change with neuroscience and emotional intelligence insights to embed change and improve performance and wellbeing at work.
“I worked with Sophie on various challenges, from turning around a business and changing its culture, to creating collective alignment and collaboration for effective execution. Her experience, amazing listening skills and ability to read situations and people give her a rare emotional intelligence. She understands how to find collective intelligence to create cohesion while using her business acumen and leadership expertise to deliver on change. Never in my career, have I successfully managed critical change so ‘easily’. I wouldn’t have dared to deal with some of those topics without her help.” Supply Chain Director
If you are looking for a new role, or even your first role after university, you might be following a similar journey with stress, uncertainty and isolation.
Clarity on your purpose (who you are and what you want) is essential for defining a meaningful role. Strategic focus and a clear action plan are critical to find job opportunities and land interviews. Regulating your emotions and adopting helpful behaviours will boost your self-confidence and resilience so you successfully manage the recruitment process, get the job and settle into your role.
I work with all clients needs from graduates to leaders on an individual or group format using emotional intelligence and neuroscience insights on top of career tools to support you in your job search.
