Our Corporate activity is centred on the organisation of workshops and training sessions to assist our clients in their personnel management, to face most effectively the case of employees whose state of health is having a significant impact on their professional activity.
Recovery coaching is designed around employees who are returning to professional activity after a long break to treat major health issues (cancer, cardio-vascular incidents, depression etc), as well as the cases of independent professionals and senior executives facing the same transitions.
The aim is to assist the person through the understanding of the impact of his health issue on his activity, helping him to find the necessary settings to better manage the impact of his illness, his warning signs and to therefore be able to take on professional commitments with greater confidence, and to rebuild a new stability in his active life.
It could be useful to extend the experience to include to some extent coworkers in the team of the person being coached, and we could arrange such, if it was considered appropriate by management.
The coaching is personalized, it is generally done in 6 to 8 sessions of 90 minutes duration. Coaching starts during the work stoppage; during a therapeutic management or after the return and takes place over 3 to 5 months depending on the case.
An evaluation after one year as passed is integrated, marking our desire to be part of an operational approach.
This specific coaching module is designed around the employee who suffers from a chronic ailment which leads to frequent work absences. It’s clear that frequent breaks from a normal work schedule has significant consequences on an employee’s career path. They also impact the work of other team members, and work organisation in general, imposing costs and difficulties in personnel managements/human resources.
The concept of this coaching model is to perform a deep understanding of the impact of the condition, and work on the adaptation required to manage its impact. At the end of the coaching period the subject will have the keys to integrate the necessary changes, to implement, to maintain his positive contribution, to rediscover some motivation, and to reinvest in his career path.
The coaching is personalized, it is generally done in 5 to 7 sessions of 90 minutes duration. It starts with the agreement of the employee and the company, at any time depending the working situation and the schedule is defined according to the particular cases.
An evaluation after one year as passed is integrated, marking our willingness to be part of an operational approach.
This coaching module focuses on professionals and executives who have major professional constraints, and who do not have the possibility to separate their health imperatives from their professional activities, dealing with them in ordered manner.
The coaching will focus on their specific needs to integrate the necessary imperatives of treatment, the management of the necessary professional concessions to reality which have to be accepted, and the requirement of preparing and implementing the management of professional responsibilities during recovery, and over the long term.
This Coaching is highly personalised, and built around the particular person to be coached, and around his/her challenges.
Childbirth has consequences for a mother which discovers another part of herself. This part should be integrated such that she returns to her place enriched by the experience, and can make the necessary compromises to put this into a professional perspective.
The objectives of these workshops is to help mothers build a new balance, allowing them to better take control of their career path.
After more than two years of sick leave, Annick managed to restore my confidence in my ability to carry out an activity on regular basis despite pain and persistant tiredness.
By teaching me to segment my goals, measure my results and congratulate myself on my small successes, Annick allowed me to realize that my illness was not an insuperable obstacle.
Her strength and relevance, in my opinion, lies in her ability to provide specific and concrete advice to address each deadline without ever losing sight of the big picture. She is pragmatic but realistic, motivating but tolerant.
More than anything, she is able to adapt to any situation and give me the ingredients to achieve my goals. With her by my side, I finally feel more serene to continue my path towards a complete vocational rehabilitation.
Follow-up : A year after my first meeting with Annick, I am now embarking on a professional career in a totally new world. I can not believe how far we have come and the obstacles we have overcome thanks to Annick's support. Despite the persistence of the disease, I manage to remove my limiting beliefs and continue to move on the path of a reorientation that allows me to glimpse a professional fulfillment long since disappeared.
Coaching with Annick was very useful for taking a step back and having a more global vision of situations. It also allowed me to avoid over-reacting when my professional entourage, disregarding my state of health, allowed myself to think and make inappropriate judgments.
Today I tend to consider this type of behavior as clumsiness. I have set up strategies to adapt my activity to my energy level without always justifying myself. I learned to verbalize simply what annoys me, to express my needs. My work environment has a lot less influence on me. I have more confidence in myself.
Once again, thank you to Annick for her invaluable contribution.
Follow-up: Sylvie has integrated an audit position with demanding periods (travels and annual closings).
She manages her position by taking a step back, and adapting to different situations taking into account the traces of the disease (pain, limitations in movement).
Annick accompanied me on my return to work after a 10-month sick leave for a second breast cancer. Together we prepared my return, based on an inventory of the requirements of my previous missions and my current abilities and limits. The coaching allowed me to be in an active and constructive posture, while specifying to my employer my constraints, to clarify the situation completely
Thanks to this work, the interviews organizing my return both with the occupational doctor and my supervisor, were clear and led very quickly to a definition of terms that suited me. In my eyes, this is the guarantee of a solid and long term return to work .
After the recovery, Annick's support allowed me to accept these new modalities myself, to define modes of intervention and new postures in my position, and to help me find a new balance between health, private life and professional life.
The alternation of different techniques used, role playing, simulations, corporal translation of situations, work on emotions, have made these coaching sessions playful, adapted over time and support.
All wrapped up in Annick's caring, smiling and professional skills. A real pleasure. I warmly recommend to all those who want this moment of return to work to be an essential step in the road to recovery.
Follow-up: Muriel has resumed her work for a year, she has evolved very positively within her company in a new position and still with therapeutic adjustment of working time
"With all its listening, its softness and the technique of NLP, Annick allowed me to take a step back on many situations, prepare at best a professional interview that has positively succeeded. Above all I have learn to give the place that I wish to my diabetes.
Follow-up: Thanks to this coaching, today I have an exciting new job and tools that allow me to listen to myself, regain confidence and have a balance in everyday life. "
