DiscernYard is about helping leaders to sense, think, act and learn to ensure the long term sustainability of their businesses.
It's also, for me, the right time to share 25 successful years of observations, experiences and practice in a corporate international environment.
Sharing experiences and knowledge means an ability to :
engage large scale organizations through changes
influence diversified international corporate cultures
grow talents and teams to create value
manage successful CEO & Board members' transitions
develop C-suite and teams' engagement
Pourquoi DiscernYard ?
L'idée de DiscernYard est née à partir de vingt- cinq années d'observations, d'expériences et de pratiques en entreprises internationales. C'est aussi pour moi le moment de partager.
Dans un monde digitalisé en profonde accélération, la compétence humaine différenciatrice sera de développer, à titre individuel et collectif, le champs du discernement, d'où DiscernYard.
Why Discernyard ?

In a fast paced digitalized world in profound, acceleration, the differentiating competence will be the unique ability to develop, individually and collectively, the field of discernment. This is the reason behind the creation of DiscernYard.
