The Edge Theory
Leading change starts with crossing one’s edge.
Organisational change requires crossing edges from the Old to the New. Each one of us cross their edge in their own time and way. Leaders too! Change happens when the critical mass is reached… That is why SEA CHANGE focuses on helping Leaders identify and cross their own edge (resistance) to leverage their power, encourage others to change and accelerate transition towards the New. Inside, and outside.
The New Model
Leading change requires new levels of confidence and creativity. Awareness is not enough to change habits and behaviors. Models of the Old often dictate identity and behaviors, preventing Leaders to tap into their innate knowledge and wisdom. SEA CHANGE provides Leaders with a unique dynamic model, developed over 20 years of self-exploration and application in organisations. 3 foundational Pillars, Presence, Power & Peace, help leaders to move from their reactive tendencies to their creative power.
The Systemic Approach
Leading change requires a clear Purpose and aligned actions. Thinking and talking about change is not enough. Change needs to be embodied. New Leaders awaken to their purpose, reinvent themselves at all levels, and upgrade their entire decision-making system. SEA CHANGE helps Leaders to align all dimensions of themselves, Mind, Heart, Guts, with Soul Purpose for coherence to achieve tanglible results, with speed, simplicity and sustainability.

FOR SEA CHANGE
“Caroline’s New Model with the 3 Pillars has enabled me to connect my head with my heart, find my passion to truly develop into a conscious and authentic leader, and step into public speaking. It provides practical and effective strategies to navigate life’s hurdles and obstacles effectively and build resilience. The 3 Pillars enable me to pause, reflect and focus on what really matters.”Aisha RawertDirector Organization Capabilities & Performance Management at DU Telecom
“Inner peace is important for a happy and rewarding life. It gives clarity in differentiating right and wrong. Caroline was my co-explorer on this and other topics. The 3 Pillars is a guide rather than a prescriber of ready solutions. I could get insights, and look for new openings toward an enjoyable life journey.”E. Murat Tuzcu, MDChief Academic Officer, Professor of Medicine at Cleveland Clinic
“Working with Caroline and the 3 Pillars was an unexpected journey of self-discovery. I entered the coaching process expecting a very functional output, refocusing my skills around a range of corporate metrics. In reality, I went through a fundamental rebirth. I rediscovered my true purpose in the workplace and the wider world. This simple model helped remind me of the values I stand for and guided me through a process to refocus around them in order to unlock value for the organization.”Matthew HorobinDirector Brand & Engagement at Dubai Airports
“Caroline’s New Leadership Model has helped me get established better mechanisms, processes, steps to address performance issues that were limiting factors to achieve better performance. It gave me insights into my behavior, approach and methodology to better perform. It is my goal to develop and lead high performing teams, the 3 Pillars helped me clarify and put in place effective actions to achieve it. This is the legacy that I want to leave.”Shannon HoreVP Supply Chain at Dubai Airports
“Caroline helped me become a better leader with an increased focus on what is really important. By creating an atmosphere of trust and by asking the right questions we uncovered areas of improvement but also defined direction. This happened to an extent that even other members of the team remarked on the transformation happening. One told me : “We all observed a transformation in you over the past 6-9 months“.”Marek SzymanekRegional Service Head MEA at Siemens Healthineers
“Caroline was instrumental in assisting me to move from taking a back seat in my professional career to shifting me into a gear where I focus on projects which merge my passion with my qualifications. She is approachable and skilled at leading you out of the rut and into the light. This is done with compassion and sensitivity, which is important, as for many of us our career is the most valuable asset we own.”Sara CarmodyFinancial Law Specialist & Author
“I met with Caroline when in career transition. We worked on a thorough assessment of my professional path, from which I gained powerful personal insights. The situational exercises opened to me new perspectives in seeing things and reacting to events. Caroline’s Model gave me the tools to build a positive self-confidence and to expand my comfort zone, that greatly improved my quality of life. We built together trust in our relationship: Caroline’s objectivity, knowledge, professionalism, kindness, dedication, availability, pragmatism… are just few of the long list of qualities that makes her a motivational coach, an encouraging mentor and a valuable advisor.”Marie-Emilie OrardMarketing Manager at Newell Brands

“I met Caroline when seeking support at a turning point in my life (change in career, family status, relocation). Caroline has helped me to shine a light on myself, and guided me on the way forward. Caroline managed with the 3 Pillars to support me with techniques that “work” for me (to get out of my mind and into my feelings): I found within myself my deepest desire, main blockages and above all my strengths to overcome them. I feel we have succeeded thanks to our collaborative work, to “peel further layers of the onion”, know myself even deeper
The simple tools I gained are now my life long companions to better see where I go, what is my way forward, and to feel stronger as I move on. Caroline disseminates a joy of living and love for life and for her job, that she shares passionately.“Melanie BugnonTrade Advisor at Business France
“Caroline really motivates and guides with different exercises, tools to really boost and guide you to your actual goals. She is an angel and knows exactly what she’s doing and how to do it. She makes you realize your faults, issues yourself with the solutions to all your problems. My life has changed for good. Thanks to Caroline and her amazing sessions, I have reached my goal of meeting my target at work every month (I work on commission only), bought my mum her own apartment and a car for myself. What a year!!“Aureen JobardSenior Portfolio Manager at Allsopp&Allsopp
“Thank you for the GIANT STRIDES shared together, putting me on my purposeful path.“Marie LescourretFinancial Adviser seeking job & Mother of 5
