senior HR expert * L&D Consultant * Executive & Team Coach

I am motivated by learning and unafraid to tackle challenges...which has made me a "T-shaped" person long before the Agile era. While need & a healthy curiosity have equipped me with a broad skill set in the greater HR & Communication fields, seven of my favourite types of projects though include 1. designing learning & development programs and experiences: We learn when we live & work, not in training rooms. The goal of my designs is to facilitate the real actual learning, by mixing the right methods that fit technology available to the target population and adding a secret sauce based on fun, aha moments & sharing. 2. designing competency models for jobs and organisations What do people need to know and be able to do to be successful in a specific job? What do performers have in common in an organisation? I help organisations uncover answers to these questions and pick the few distinctive things they need to search for and measure when it comes to people behavioural and technical competencies. 3. assessment & development centre exercises & experiences Interviews fail, hence the need for assessments. There are a lot of tools out there, doing a good job with such assessments. When it comes to key leadership roles (particularly in leadership and sales), how you design the experience, and the actual exposure to people instead of machines makes all the difference. This is what I love to design from scratch - customized experience that ensure the best choice of people for such roles. 4. design of key people-related processes: performance management systems, career paths & ladders, sustainable talent building systems, recruitment & selection. As a sparring partner for internal HR teams or as end-to-end designer, the mix of analytical & strategic skills with solid capability to differentiate myths from scientific data makes the difference when I join such projects. 5. mapping, designing & optimizing operational processes This is something I love to do because it rhymes with my strong drive for efficiency; flow-charting skills blend with business acumen and the ability to talk with your experts to download their collective wisdom in order to drive your business to the next level 6. implementing Leadership and B2B Sales development programs There is simply no business in the absence of sales and leadership. As a manager, business owner and professional L&D expert, I believe that each incremental up-skilling (not to mention transformational approaches) in these areas have an instant ROI - and I made it my passion to be able to do it, in any environment where leaders and sales people are motivated to be better at their jobs. 7. executive coaching As a top manager and executive coach I know a thing or two about the "loneliness at the top", the doubt moment where a leader needs to consult with someone, the "impostor syndrom" that the best of leaders have to go through and the value of a coach standing by your side in the midst of all these. I also have a toolkit developed in 20 years of practice, that I love to share and put to use with ambitious, smart, ready-to-change leaders. +20 years in business, working all HR processes in execution, management and consulting roles in over 140 organisations on three continents have taught me some valuable lessons that I want to use as a freelancer: - nothing ever happens by the book; every challenge has a unique context and solutions are only as good as their best execution - people are not rational creatures and don't function mechanically; they have their own moment's needs & interests that shape the way they play their roles, which means that while everyone means well, you always need to factor in personal & relationship variables if you want to make things work - in the end, kindness, empathy and compassion will win the day; we need to create compliance mechanism for optimized process-driven work approaches...then at the end of the day the positive side of thinking will make the difference. The future of business is in a highly functional value chain where high performing freelancers like me complement and/or supplement businesses' internal capabilities in order to do what needs to be done to achieve the intended business results. I'm always happy to team up with ambitious people who want to reach their goals. Let's do things together!
