Mental strengh and agility at work

Recover the pleasure of working!

You have a job but you no longer enjoy it. You wonder if you will be able to hold out, knowing that stress or anxiety is winning you over with its harmful effects on your health.

You want to get out of this vicious circle made of confusion, discouragement and the feeling of being stuck.

You need  to strengthen your ability to face work’s daily challenges. With only some coaching sessions, you will take responsibilty to improve your life by preserving your mental health, improving your workplace relationships (as well as those at home) and reviving your enthusiasm for getting up and going to work.

Coaching, what for?

With just a few coaching sessions, you will:

  • get more clarity
  • find back self-confidence and hope
  • have a clear work plan and resources

Reflecting on your current work situation, I will help you gain a deep awareness of changes you could immediately implement to favorably impact your work-life.

Relocating to another country means a lot of challenges:

  • a professional and personal network that needs to be built up,
  • an online and offline application file that needs to be refreshed,
  • thoughts about changing career or finding more meaning in your professional path,
  • struggles with cultural differences and new habits in daily life,

are just some few examples of what an expat can face when moving abroad.

As a career development consultant and certified coach from the International Coaching Federation, my mission and passion is to connect you with more sense, success  and happiness in your professional life.  Here is what I bring in the coaching sessions:

  • My sound advice based on 20 years of expatriation and living in Switzerland since 2006
  • A deep understanding of your challenges
  • A good knowledge of the Swiss job market
  • Professional experience in consulting, business development, marketing and communications in small and large companies in France, Sweden and Switzerland.
  • The experience of having supported 50 expats in their career transition since 2016.
  • A professional approach and commitment to your growth and wellbeing.

Reflecting on your current work situation, I will help you gain a deep awareness of changes you could immediately implement to favorably impact your work-life.  I will share with you my years of experience in career development for expatriates in Switzerland and provide you with tips and advice adapted to your particular situation.

Isabelle was really helpful and effective: she gave me a lot of hints doing also a concrete work on my CV and Linkedin profile. Isabelle is extremely professional, working with you with passion and commitment. She was able to highlight my technical and soft skills set, in order to give me a better overview of my professional horizons and where to focus my efforts. I strongly recommend Isabelle for both her professional and human attitude
