Stéphane Flasse

Initially trained in agronomy and remote sensing, I acquired over 30 years experience in the interpretation and use of environmental information (inc. remote sensing and GIS) and its integration into the local context for improving decision-making.

Since 2009, I have also been training in a number of complementary approaches such as Organisational Counselling, Organisation Alignment and Life Alignment, therefore focusing on the “well being” of teams and their work.

Today I thrive and focus on facilitating the life journey of people, teams and organisations: from facilitating challenging meetings and round tables, to deep work on the whole organisation, as well as activities such as team building, coaching and conflict resolution (mediation).
