Who I work with

business leaders


By serendipity I met Mr. Bernard Foure while traveling in New York City. We had a brief and wonderful conversation about how personalized leadership development might improve my effectiveness as an executive in an academic medical center. I hired him. Bernard's most significant contribution was to focus and direct my self reflection about key people, events and challenges in the workplace. By talking through problems with this brilliant listener and coach, Bernard helped me effect positive change by owning and then acting upon my convictions. His greatest impact was to help unlock or unblock the courage to accept the consequences of change in order to move the organization forward. After each of our sessions I always had two or three new strategies to navigate forward. In addition to analyzing and figuring approaches to the thorny work-a-day details of our conferences, I gained great insights into building trust and respect and managing my time and energy. Bernard has indirectly helped my whole leadership team through our coaching sessions.

“My experience of coaching with Bernard is one of a rich, efficient and motivating journey. Based on a given mutual trust and openness, it was extraordinary direct, intimate and emotionally strong. Starting from a classical 360, generating an immediate enlightening and surprising unified feedback, the discovery of energy level was foundational to allow pragmatic and focused actions very quickly. It opened my eyes on my relation to time and to priority setting, such I decided to invest time, in adding this energy dimension to my warrior style. It did allow me to practically understand and revisit my behaviors and its impact on others (professional or not), with clear and immediate positive feedback about my perception and relation to others. Results are there, and it is a never ending journey. Bernard’s coaching ,although entirely thru phone calls, based on deep mutual attention, active listening and commitment, did drive a lot of positive energy and returns ,being one of my very best training ever.”
