A very little help makes all the difference. Some environments are challenging. With a little support we have the confidence, courage and comfort and we dare to take the next steps for our future.
Si vous êtes confronté(e) à un nouveau challenge, n‘hésitez plus, osez ! . Un peu de soutien bien orienté vous aidera à être plus confiant(e), plus clair(e), plus courageux/euse, plus à l’aise, face au futur.

On sort d’une session de coaching avec le sentiment d’avoir à la fois appris quelque chose et d’avoir avancé dans son travail. Avec Martin, vous serez à coup sûr un meilleur leader et vous gagnerez du temps sur votre développement. Je recommande chaudement de vivre cette expérience.’

This is very much a personal story. I am by nature, international, inclusive and appreciate diversity. And I saw something that made me angry.
When I arrived in France, I remarked that many of the people I encountered were ‘excluded’ from international roles and teams. For the simple reason they were not at ease in their global professional language. Even when their professional added value was at least equal to their ‘Anglo-American’ colleagues.
I made it my mission to change this. To ensure that my clients performed even better internationally than they did in their local national environment. To ensure they became confident, clear, courageous and made an impact in an international environment. My clients and I discovered together, the challenges, the key factors, the tools, the processes and the results that made a difference.
We worked together on knowledge, understanding, feeling, behavior and experience. Our success rate was surprising. We generated gains immediately, in the short term and long term change and my clients became successful global business leaders.
For me, France has a culture ‘of excellence’; that means it’s not easy to succeed here, it takes time and a proven record. This demanding environment is great and challenging for me and my clients. I am proud to say my work was ‘made in France’, with French colleagues and clients, and with French standards of excellence.
Diversity - sustainable outcomes. (results)
Each person’s life is unique and the challenges they have faced and overcome give them a unique set of talents. Bringing all these people together infuses your team with huge creativity and a very broad spectrum of potential solutions, and a far greater probability of significantly better results.
Equity - equal outcomes.
Equality of opportunity is an old fashioned idea and has been replaced with equity, which means achieving at least the same or even better outcomes (results) with the right tools and support. We all know examples of the great people in history and of today who have made enormous contributions because they overcame great disadvantages, which made them who they are, and enabled them to gift the world with ideas and things that otherwise might never have happened.

“Martin and I worked together regularly during the multi-year coaching program of the “big deals” outsourcing sales team. I remember it has been a fantastic experience: • first as an english “teacher” but also more than this, helping me with the way I was communicating, dealing with all kind of accent and pronunciation, cultural behavior which is now something that I use every day in my international job where lots of people are not Anglo-American native. • Secondly more as a coach, helping me to grow “in english” as a woman executive in a context full of male colleagues. Our relationship was based on mutual confidence and trust. In a nutshell, the time spent with Martin has been probably one of the most valuable “learning” time I ever had in my career and on top of all with lots of fun! kind regards” Sylvie, Strategic Deals Bid Director CAPGEMINI
