We really liked our coaching sessions with Sylvie. We were able to understand the roots of French culture and we could finally decipher some behaviors that we had observed at work in France. We now understand our own cultural profile and learned strategies on how to adapt efficiently to everyday life in France as well as to life in the office with French colleagues and French directors. The training session was made in English for her but she even taught us a few useful French words and expressions. We spent a whole day together and the session was still very pleasant and really caught our attention. Sylvie has a talent for listening and making the a long working day really pleasant. She made a really good job by customizing the training sessions for our needs. Thank you very much Sylvie! Hope to keep in touch with you.

由于工作调动,公司专门请了席乐薇女士从法国飞到武汉为我及家人做了为期两天的培训。 初次接触席乐薇女士是在培训前的沟通,她的专业素养,严谨的工作态度与细致的工作作风给我留下了深刻印象。尽管培训期只有短短的两天时间,但是她在来之前多次和我沟通,详细了解我的工作及家庭情况,并针对我们想要知晓的各种信息内容,做了一个很详细的培训计划,当她知道我家人对英语不太熟悉时,她还很贴心的找她在中国的老师将课件翻译成中文,便于我家人的理解与沟通。 见到席乐薇女士时,她的优雅与随和一下子拉近了我们彼此的距离,让我们很快能进入培训的状态,为了更好让我的家人能更好接受培训,培训期间,她都会用良好的中文素养,全程用双语进行培训。席乐薇女士给我们准备的各种培训资料与案例分析让我们能更好更深入的了解美国文化与习惯,她不仅用自己在美国的切身经历带我们一起去感受美国与中国之间的文化与习惯差异,并根据我们赴美后工作及生活都进行了一些列有针对性的培训。整个培训过程,循序渐进,由浅入深,条理清晰,并会设定很多场景让我们身临其境的去感受,让我们受益匪浅。 如今我和家人已经赴美工作与生活,席乐薇女士的那次专业而有深度的培训对我们初来美国帮助很大,让我们消除了很多顾虑与疑惑,让我们了解中美文化的差异,同时也给我们尽快融入新的工作与生活环境起到了很大助力。

Working with colleagues dispersed in several countries with different cultural and educational background is more and more often a common working context for project teams in industry. Through a 2-day training, Sylvie provided me with the keys to better understand the important factors making the success of projects lead by multicultural teams. Sylvie made the training very realistic through everyday working life examples and simulations adapted to my company’s specificities and my expectations. I deeply recommend Sylvie for its expertise and the dynamic way she performs the training.

Sylvie has provided to my wife and me an outstanding intercultural preparation module for the US. Sylvie is very skilled in this area, she matches to her customer's expectations and questions instead of reading a lesson. She is very passionate and precise. The day spent with her has been very useful to succeed our first months in the US. On top, she is an open and pleasant person.

I have had the chance to attend a 2 days course about how to work with Japanese. Besides all the formal course useful for the daily business (and for special events), I have also appreciate the way Sylvie introduced the overall Japanese culture and its impact on the working relationships. This course was highly dynamics with many examples and situations, and was really helpful for our French team dealing regularly with Japanese colleagues.
