Who are we ?

Who are we ?

We are a team of qualified practitioners who share the same conviction; that the right use of talents within organizations is often inhibited by the still insufficient dissemination of collaborative working methods, hasty judgments and systems which are far too complex.

Our experience is in organizational design, strategy consulting, organizational coaching and executive coaching. We have extensive practical experience in the fields of general management, international development and HR management.

Our firm was founded in 2010 by Bruno Chaintron. We strive to be architects of roles and relationships for greater Agility and Purpose in organizations.
