Stéphanie’s full Linkedin profile.

I was initially a little cynical of leadership coaching but very quickly Stephanie gave me some very practical tools to dismiss my cynicism. Stephanie saw very quickly what was holding me back and helped me to see and subsequently deal with it. Over the longer term though her coaching had major results, the most notable being my confidence in taking a position of leadership. The time I spent with Stephanie was a great investment that pays a regular dividend.

After being on a training course with Stephanie, where I had the opportunity to learn about new approaches to conflict solving and managing people in complex situations; I can say that her approach to such complex matter is really innovative but still close to reality. This is only possible through a deep knowledge of the subject and the easy way she manages to transmit her knowledge.

I have had the pleasure to attend a leadership training provided by Stéphanie. She is an experienced professional who has an extensive knowledge of the business world.
She is perfectly capable of adapting her training to the client needs taking into account the environment, and most important, creating a climate of trust and respect. She helped us to find our own solutions, putting cases into practice thanks to concrete exercise and effective techniques. I would readily recommend her for any future training need.

Stéphanie m’a conseillée au cours de plusieurs sessions de coaching afin de m’aider à mieux préparer et construire la croissance de notre équipe. Sa capacité à écouter est précieuse, tout autant que son expérience acquise auprès de startupers aussi bien que de cadres dirigeants de grands groupe. Chaque session est l’occasion de résoudre des problématiques concrètes, de mettre à plat des points de blocage et de trouver les clefs pour les résoudre efficacement. Le résultat pour nous, après trois mois est probant : la stratégie est mieux assimilée par l’équipe et nous travaillons de manière plus fluide tous ensemble.

Stéphanie a parfaitement su comprendre l’univers de l’agence pour pouvoir nous accompagner au mieux. Ses journées de formation nous ont permis d’avoir un regard neuf sur notre structure. Elle nous a également permis de lancer un vrai programme d’action de nos différents processus internes. Très enrichissant et productif, merci Stéphanie !

Stéphanie est un excellent coach, qui sait insufler son energie à un groupe, et développer sur le plan personnel ses clients, de façon très efficace.

Céline SouliersCéline Souliers / Directrice, Incubateur Belle de Mai

Stéphanie intervient auprès des entrepreneurs en cours d’incubation à l’Incubateur Belle de Mai sur un sujet primordial au démarrage de l’entreprise : la constitution de l’équipe. Elle a adapté les ateliers aux besoins de nos incubés et à leurs spécificités (jeunes entreprises innovantes, domaine du numérique, en lien avec des laboratoires de recherche …) en s’appuyant sur les retours d’expériences d’anciens projets issus de l’Incubateur Belle de Mai et d’autres incubateurs. Son intervention permet de débloquer des situations et de préparer au mieux les entrepreneurs dans leur futur rôle de chef d’entreprise.

Luca BrunelleschiLuca Brunelleschi / Head of Resources Controlling, Airbus 

I had the opportunity to attend a training on Conflict Management organised by Airbus and led by Stephanie a few weeks ago which is an interesting topic not always easy to deal with; nevertheless Stephanie deserved my enthusiastic recommendation for the proved professionalism and the good atmosphere created within the group. Thanks for that!

elmsIan Elms / Manager, Accenture 

Stephanie’s coaching strengthened my self-belief so that I could put a discouraging interview behind me when I re-applied for a position with the knowledge I would face the same interviewer who had put me off at the original interview. I went back into the interview process with a clear vision of what I wanted to get out of it. This time I wasn’t discouraged by the interviewer, and I was offered the job I wanted, and even negotiated a joining bonus. I recommend Stephanie as a coach who helps you to believe in yourself and who empowers you to achieve your goals.

Des messages clés et chocs dans un gant de velours… Stéphanie intervient chez nous en formation sur le rôle de l’entrepreneur notamment. Elle fait passer les bons messages en douceur avec le brio que l’on connait chez Merkapt : des méthodes originales et des slides toujours au top.

Jan SchrageJan Schrage / Development Project Manager, SAP 

I’ve worked with Stéphanie while she was acting as a career coach for our talent program. In that context she gave trainings to mentees that were very well received. She also managed all issues related to the program, including feedback to mentees and mentors, deadlines etc. for more than nine months remotely and on-site with very good results. Stéphanie is very good at transmitting ideas, getting people to buy in and follow through, and she is a pleasure to work with.

Bertrand SibilleBertrand Sibille / CFO, Radical Beauty 

Stéphanie has an outstanding sense of analysis. Her vision, her talent, her reading of facts, are some of the multiple qualities she deploys as a coach. Stéphanie accompanied me during a radical change of career a few years ago. Her advices, recommendations as well as the follow-ups that were set up allowed me to reach the objectives which we had fixed. A highly talented coach whom I shall recommend to whomever is requiring competencies in number of fields such as change management, personal behavior and development, strategy management…
