We build our approach on 25 years of work on emotions. Most coaching methods help to understand things and unblock problems in the short term. Our emotion-centred approach allows you to feel something and thus ensures lasting anchoring.
In our work together, we will discuss the subjects that preoccupy you. Through them, we will work on your emotional matter, release your driving emotions, pacify your limiting emotions, and get closer to who you are to help you be the best you can be.
We think like psychologists and interact like coaches; our exchange will be straightforward, made of disturbing and even destabilising questions to lift your defences, optimise your interactions, and find the right balance of perspective and energy.
The particularity of your role is, on the one hand, its solitary character; on the other hand, the need for constant balance between long-term vision and day-to-day management, ambition, and connection with the teams. We help you, thanks to this better perception of your own emotions, to be freer and more inspiring in each of these roles.
We help you to recognise your strengths and assets and to use them daily to be at your best and be an understood, inspiring, and fulfilled leader. We also work to manage stress and frustration and make your interactions more fluid and effective.
You manage a team, report to an N+1 and constantly interact with peers. You will build your success through these three realities, and we support you in these three dimensions.
The difficulty for any business owner, but even more so for an entrepreneur, is to be many things at once. You need to Think Big and manage the Run in parallel successfully. This requires energy, sharpness, management skills, a qualitative human connection with the teams and numerous stakeholders, and creativity to move projects forward. At each stage of development, you need maximum emotional freedom: not to be overtaken by fear, to turn stress into energy, and to find the right balance between being connected to yourself and others.
The AEMD® Method, focused on emotions, helps to find and anchor these balances.
We build on our dual expertise as work therapists and former business builders/leaders; we act as real-time sparring partners throughout your venture.
In your preliminary work, we provide guidance in your funding, HR, and go-to-market strategies.
During growth phases, we help you define, hire and onboard the appropriate resources and set up a management committee. We partner on your optimal interaction model with the financial board.
As you scale, we help delegate the day-to-day and set up operational committees. We bring solutions to maintain the induction/stimulation of your teams through people who are no longer the co-founders.
In significant funding/selling/IPO steps, we assist you in optimising stakeholders’ interactions.
When you approach a company for an equity investment, you have access to all the information you need to assess its validity and potential and define an investment strategy. However, it is more difficult to determine the human factor accurately.
We support you in this process by analysing the co-founders' leadership skills and interaction patterns through potential and possible risk areas. After an in-depth discussion with you, we meet individually and collectively with the co-founders to provide you with a detailed and well-founded recommendation.
Post-deal, we support the integration by leading a group including the co-founders and critical C-levels. We help them take the measure of the new potential opened by your investment and scale effectively. We focus on HR growth strategy and the optimisation of interaction models.
We offer different models to elevate your teams and foster affiliation, inspiration and retention and therefore gain cohesion and performance.
We support you in defining the optimal organisation and improving interactions. We address specific topics such as alignment with the corporate vision and strategy, the possible emergence of unexpressed expectations, prevention or easing of tensions, balancing of personalities, the role of the group, bonding and cohesion between members or, ultimately, succession planning.
We help you gain clarity about your teams’ morale, engagement, drivers, and frustrations through a quantitative survey focusing on ten key emotions. Through a user-friendly interface, we gather feedback that provides an in-depth representation of your team's state of mind and fulfilment. On the back of that, we share with you our assessment and bring recommendations on how we can support driving positive change.
