I’m Laetitia. An innovation and strategist expert, an accredited holistic coach,a proud mama of two little girls with an insatiable curiosity and energy dedicated to empower you to reach your own dreams with clarity and impact, with mindful, effective frameworks.
I was hyperactive (and still am), I’m grateful that I was introduced to meditation at the age of 5 which put me on the self-awareness path and growth mindset at a very young age. Indeed for as long as I can remember, I’ve been insatiably curious about everything, this led me on a journey of self discovery through India in my early twenties, spending time in Ashrams, practicing Yoga, meditation and Ayurveda and the privilege of hearing the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala.
This experience and knowledge I gained has been able to guide me in my professional career, from being a strategy and innovation consultant to leadership positions in corporates and now as a holistic and innovation coach.
When my demanding pressurised career in strategy consulting led to burn out, something changed and I started asking myself questions that I had been avoiding for a long time: What would actually be my dream job? What do I want to spend my day doing? What are my key values and priorities? If I was not afraid of failing, what would I do?
When I became a mum, it became even more pressing for me to align my passions with my unique superpowers to have a positive impact in the world while earning a living from it. Doing that I’ve found more joy, fulfilment, and balance in my daily life. Today I work part time in a leadership position for a leading Australian brand and run my own business with Essential Shift.
Finding a purpose
I find we often don’t give ourselves permission to ask (let alone answer) those questions, like I’ve done for myself at different critical times of my life. You might find it scary and uncomfortable to challenge the status-quo. But when you do, when you truly let yourself think about who you want to be, you won’t want to go back. It changes your mindset, your perspective, and your motivation to live the life you’ve put on hold for way too long.
And having a coach who has found those answers, found how to self-realise herself and how to balance all sides of her life is a true gift for any individual.
Marching to the beat of your own drum
I continue to learn new things each day and expand my own ideas about what it means to live a fully creative and meaningful life. I don’t try fit into a conventional box anymore. I embrace my whole self. I’ve studied Professional and Life coaching, Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Theory U, Ayurveda, Mindfulness that I use in my work with my clients.
For more than a decade, I’ve been dedicated to leading and coaching individuals and groups to help them dive within, make the shift they need and emerge with the right mindset and productive actions to bring their innovative professional or personal project to life with clarity and impact.
My speciality is that I blend innovation and strategy frameworks with coaching, mindfulness and ayurveda approaches to reach an outer and inner lasting shift.
One of the things I’m often asked is: "How did you get started in all this?"
