In this episode Anne-Claire shares

  • What a consultant do for a company wanting to make a change.
  • The power of appreciation.
  • What kind of mindset a leader needs to move their organization to one that intentionally inspires their people.


  1. How can you increase the level of appreciation within your organization?
  2. Are you consistent in your presentation of your values and culture or do you pay attention when you have the time?
  3. What are metrics that your employees can measure and have an impact on?
  4. And, what is the metric that really matters to your company?
