Yann Ofanowski - Sapiens Leadership - EMCC Certified Coach

“I had the pleasure to work with Valentine and Yann in a Leadership Program designed and implemented for my team. The experience was extremely positive. They were remarkably able to bring together two dimensions that tend to struggle in companies: how leaders can maximize business output and, at the same time, also maximize personal well-being. They are capable to find a very nice equilibrium, which is exactly the place where companies are trying to get to: a strong human component, creation of a safe environment to put our problems on the table and never forget the company’s priorities and business objectives.

Working with both of them created real value for our organization and I look forward to the next workshop together.”
