Thriving for “more”? We prefer caring and daring for “better”

May 31, 2023

Business, like life, is a journey. What makes it great often lies in the encounters and experiences that we live and share with those who have crossed our paths and travelled with us. Those we were able to lean on and rely on when the winds were against us or in the worst storms. Those who have guided us towards the right way and the best roads to take. Those who were able to challenge and enrich our choices and decisions. Those who believed in us, in our potential, even against the odds.

 We call this experience: Companionship.

Our companionship lies in our unconditional commitment to quality and excellence both in our relationships developing privileged proximity and intimacy as your trustworthy companions for leadership and in the craftsmanship of our leadership wisdom programmes and co-created bespoke solutions.

The transformations in yourself and your wisdoms will influence your life personally and professionally.

Leadership development and embodiment is where we get to integrate – what we are, do, think, feel, intend, desire, fear, and aspire to. Embodiment is how ‘being’ and ‘leading’ inter-penetrate creatively, it is the foundation for developing your Leadership Wisdom in Action.

Companionship goes beyond advising to include being ‘with’ leaders and their teams through critical transitions, crucial conversations, inner growth, and navigating their lives. It is as much about being a witness to transformation as it is about providing skills, perspectives, development, and solutions.

This relationship is not orientated towards proving the value of the advice given, but on unleashing the unique creativity, wisdom, and empowering possibilities in your leadership.
We do not thrive for “more”. We are caring and daring for “better”.

Cyril Legrand & Dr. Philip Hayton

Cyril Legrand

Partner & Leadership Companion, France

For over 20 years, Cyril has worked for large consumer-goods organisations especially in Asia, developing people and teams, and steering diverse groups successfully through tumultuous times. His ability to unite and transform, in situations of extreme pressure, has earned him a reputation of being a highly versatile and capable leader. Cyril himself has a thirst for knowledge and a belief in self-discovery and progress. He practices what he preaches – “collaborative action based on collective wisdom”. He has developed a range of highly effective leadership models and frameworks, and hugely enjoys the challenges that his work provides, often helping students on a pro-bono basis to address critical development issues.   

Dr. Philip Hayton

Partner & Leadership Companion, UK

Philip’s passion in vocation comes from a belief in (a) the wisdom held in each person and whole system and (b) that this key quality is a foundation for all creative outcomes, innovative progressions, and meaningful transformations that may unfold. Philip’s expertise (if that’s the right word) is partly his ability to look carefully at the relevant levels of a complex human system (person, family, group, team, organization, societal institution, etc.) to see and release its latent wisdom and capacity to thrive. Philip’s orientation is holistic – somatic, emotional, intellectual, behavioral, relational and strategic - naturally encompassing what some call ‘spiritual’ as integral to the fullness of a human being. Philip puts his expertise in service to such an orientation.
