Sophie supports businesses, organisations and individuals with projects in adapting to present and future needs by learning to adjust mindsets, develop intercultural competence and personal behaviour.
Human contact is the governing principle of both my life and my professional activity. My first job as a hydrogeologist took me to Africa placing me in direct contact with populations that were often poor, but rich in energy and enthusiasm. In situations of war, it was important to be able to identify glimmers of hope: a child’s smile, a woman’s bravery, a man’s gesture of generosity. This strength has led me to a better understanding of who we are, what motivates us and enables us to live together in harmony, or not, as may be the case.
Today's businesses need this understanding. Our job is to help them in this task of cohabitation in which each individual counts and where the dynamics of the whole become determining factors. Self-knowledge, knowledge of others, communication, transparency, and recognition are the driving forces behind living together, which we help implement, develop, and integrate into the values of the company itself.
Change is upon us and is accelerating exponentially. The 21st century feels both uncomfortable yet enthusiastic; companies must be able to quickly adapt with agility to fluctuating economic environments, the blending of generations and cultures, as well as to the advanced integration of new technologies. The central element of this evolution is the man who must possess a keen self-knowledge capable of using all of his potential in the pursuit of his future.
My work is heavily centered around companies of all sizes and all sectors, contributing to get things done with listening, engagement, creativity and humour.
