His Approach To Coaching

Jean-Michel PHILIPPON’s coaching approach is a hybrid approach based on his own duality of leader and coach. It is not a question of high or low position, but a position of listening, understanding and openness. Taking the leader as he is, understand his ambition and open his vision to the future and progress.

The coaching process is based essentially on the coachee’s self-knowledge, his systemic understanding of his ecosystems, and his projections towards a clarified and ambitious vision of his leadership role.

His main tools come from transactional analysis, the systems approach, cognitive and behavioural psychology as well as neurosciences.

Jean-Michel PHILIPPON uses a coaching style defined as “dynamic and pragmatic”, an approach in which the manager fully engages with, helping him to reach its full potential.
