I am one of the two founding partners of The Edgework Partnership – a practice dedicated to supporting the development of advanced organizations. By delivering leadership, team, and organizational development programs, I can help individuals and teams to build their emotional, social and relationship systems intelligence. This enables them to perform to higher standards in the pursuit of their goals.
I have 15 years experience in HR and team management in the cultural and sports events sectors, managing teams and service suppliers ranging from 12 to 1,200 people. As well as working at Le Palais de Congrès in Paris, I led teams working on international events such as the French Open Tennis, the 2007 Rugby World Championship in France, the London 2012 Olympics and the Paris-Dakar Rally. Through my experience of recruiting, co-ordinating and leading large teams (with staff groups sometimes numbering in the hundreds) I gained exceptional insight into what helps to deliver great results (and what doesn’t!).
As I began to work with more international and global clients, I turned to the work of Professor Hofstede and Itim International on Intercultural Intelligence. Since 2012, I have presented and used this approach in my work with companies that have an increasing worldwide presence. The awareness and learning of Intercultural Intelligence that I create enables my clients to work more effectively across international and intercultural borders.
“Alexandra is an inspiring leader and coach. She has the abilities and skill to enable people to understand and get the best from themselves. She has a great balance of making one feel comfortable and safe, and at the same time gives encouragement to take risks and to make decisions. Having her as a coach and trainer has definitely helped me to understand myself, to be more confident and to be more comfortable with my own actions and decisions.” Mariana Mendoza, Senior HR Partner, Novartis International
“Just to let you know, Alexandra was brilliant!” Luc Bourgignon, Head of Processes & Tools, Group Finance, Capgemini
Alexandra knows how to be available to people because of her listening skills and the transference of her energy. Her spontaneous and positive energy when she worked with me and my team, gives her a huge advantage when she accompanies people to achieve great results in their work.” Jérome Beaucamps, Senior Relationship Manager, Sodalis Ltd Paris
