After having spent 17 years in corporate life and experienced the power of effective coaching, Marie-Liesse decided to focus as a Life & Executive Coach on helping people navigate in corporate environments, support through transitions, and/or explore their broader purpose in life; in order to unleash their potential while fulfilling deeper aspirations. Coaching is never a one-size-fits all approach and Marie-Liesse helps her clients to reach long-term excellence in ways that work for them. This can only happen when people feel truly understood and start to make conscious, personal choices. She aims at improving self-awareness and maximising success through customised exercises and practices, creating lasting change both at work and at home.
Marie-Liesse also facilitates workshops for leadership teams using the Emergenetics framework that allows to tap into collective brain preferences and leverage the different strengths of each team member, so that working together becomes more refreshing and efficient. Programs range from the signature “Meeting of the Minds” to various customized workshops covering trust building, innovation, diversity and inclusion. Marie-Liesse has run workshops internally within corporate environments, with a focus on setting up unique Corporate Culture for new teams, and she facilitate workshops for students and jobseekers to help “Find your Why” and build a career in line with who they really are.
She believes that trust and authenticity must be the core of a relationship with a coach. If the relationship can inspire a sense of confidence, enthusiasm, and excitement about the future, then the journey promises to be successful for her clients.

“A lot has changed thanks to my coaching with Marie-Liesse. I feel I have been trying to fit in a box and it’s about time I deploy my wings. I clearly believe I avoided a burn-out.

Marie-Liesse helped me to improve my self-confidence and I realize how much a simple change of perspective opened up some new possibilities.” – Regional Sales Director
