I rely upon a wide range of concepts and tools primarily based on the systemic approach of organisations (Palo Alto) and to a lesser extend on transactional analysis (E. Berne).

Organisation development: Method based on the "Giroscope" developed by the "Groupe d'Intervention et de Recherche sur l'Organisation des Systèmes" (Brussels) and research works by W. Bennis, M. Crozier, E. Berne, P. Morin and P. Senge on organisations' structure and dynamics.

Change management in organisations: Process based on various approaches developed by J. Kotter, W. Bridges, P. Senge and the Mental Researh Institute in Palo Alto.

Leadership: Models and techniques developed from research work done by K. Blanchard, J. Collins, K. de Vries, P. Drucker, D. Lynch, T. Peters and J. Welch.

Leader's dashboard: inspired from E. Fox's framework on E. Berne's Theory of Organisations (described in The Structure and Dynamics of Organizations and Groups).

Vision: Methodology primarily based on various approaches developed by M. Doyle, V. Lenhardt, Kaplan & Norton’'s Balanced Scorecard, McKinsey’s "7S" and the Boston Consulting Group.

People and teams empowerment: Techniques based on W. Schutz's work strengthened by practical applications proposed by A. Cardon, P. Cauvin, A. Duluc and V. Lenhardt.

Delegation: P. Ware's communication entries, A. Cardon's delegated processes’, K. Blanchard's « One-Minute Manager » model.

Interpersonal skills: Approche Interactional and strategic approach developed by the Mental Research Institute of Palo Alto, E. Berne's Transactional Analysis, T. Kahler's ProcessCom, C. Rogers' Active listening, and M. Rosenberg's Non Violent Communication.

People management: N.K. Symor's Cycle of dependency, P. Hersey & K. Blanchard's situational leadership, General Electric's appraisal grid, Johari window.

Levels of

- Strategical skills: I primarily rely upon the systemic approach and particularly the Giroscope developed by the "Groupe d'Intervention et de Recherche sur l'Organisation des Systèmes" (Brussels). I also use E. Berne's organisational theory for it provides a remarkably complete and well articulated dashboard that includes all key aspects a leader must manage: environment, vision, strategy, activity and group processes, organisational and individual structures, socio-psychological aspects of groups, cultural aspects, styles and levels of leadership, group apparatus, functioning and amending rules, etc.

- Management skills: Levels of management, regulation, functioning rules, meeting conduct, delegation, time structuration, leadership, feedback, border management, etc.

- Interpersonal skills: Reference frames, communication channels, psychological and power games, symbiotic relationships, contaminations, simple and double transactions, parallel and crossed transactions, etc.

- Personal skills: Types of personality, psychological needs, ego states, life positions, "driver" behaviours, stress sequencess, alignment process, mourning process, modelling, etc.
