“Leaders need to have an insatiable pioneering mentality in order to truly engage others in successfully co-creating in our complex world.”
Isabelle is driven by values and results, and excels at partnering with business leaders at all levels. She’s in her element when she is able to co-create solutions with leaders, sharing relevant insights, knowledge and experiences. “I walk alongside a client, remaining open and flexible to what they need in the moment” while encouraging a healthy dose of creative tension to enable the right conversations to surface. Isabelle comes from a place of ‘free-spiritedness’ and translates this in a very engaging way when partnering with clients, regardless of the nature of the work.
She believes that effective leadership requires an insatiable pioneering mentality and openness to engaging others in co-creating in our complex world. When leaders embrace a “bring it on!” attitude, “we open ourselves, our teams, our organizations and our communities to new opportunities that we could not have anticipated had we held on to only what we know. Certainty is the enemy!”
