About Claire Lauzol
Claire has been a consultant and coach for over 17 years, specialized in the organization of the “expert sector” (i.e., managing experts within companies, developing leadership of experts and their managers, advising HRD on optimization of an in-house expert track, etc.).
She offers a combination of skills in leading change, in coaching (individual, team and organizational levels) and in educational engineering to create and implement innovative solutions that meet the challenges the companies she consults with face.
By capitalizing on her experience, Claire is particularly skilled in pooling the collective intelligence within entities to help provide them with agile systems to be used in connection with strategic project deployment. Claire is co-author of a book on this subject entitled “Les expert(e)s dans l’entreprise – développement des expertises, management des filières experts” published by Editions MAXIMA and “Coachez vos collaborateurs” published by Editions EYROLLES – Collection BASIC.
Claire holds a post-graduate degree (DESS) in management, with a major in Human Dynamics and Organizational Development. She is a Transformance Pro (CT 32) certified coach and accredited by Forum Ouvert, MBTI Levels I and II, Lumina Spark, Belbin Team Roles and non-violent communication. As a practitioner of Appreciative Inquiry for several years, Claire also uses this method when providing support services and is currently in the process of being certified by Case Western Reserve University.
PRAGMA is a Management consulting and Professional Coaching Firm founded in 1975.
Partners have built up the Firm on the foundation of strong roots tied to openness to others and interdisciplinary knowledge of people at the workplace.
PRAGMA has been supporting corporate leaders who realize the importance of team dynamics and managerial practices – especially those that position people as the driving force behind project performance. We support our clients by designing operational and transformational support in line with our convictions and that are based on value creation.
We have developed 3 complementary approaches:
1) Advice and support for Business Expert Programs
Establishing a Business Expert Program – from co-construction to deployment: defining the vision with the EXCOM or Technical Division, identifying strategic fields of expertise, co-construction of definitions and criteria grids, co-definition of how the Program and various components and bodies will function, support with implementation.
2) Coaching for experts and their managers
Individual coaching for high-level experts on very specific issues: strategic contribution (technical innovation proposals), communication impact, transfer of know-how, etc.
3) Career and personal development pathways for experts and managers of experts
PRAGMA also assists companies after a Business Expert Program has been set up to design and drive forward career and personal development pathways in leadership for experts and their managers. We can also act as stakeholders in existing pathways.
