Erickson is proud to celebrate the anniversary of our partner, Erickson France, who have completed their first year of expansion into French-speaking Europe with 60 Solution-Focused coaches trained! After launching their first two The Art & Science of Coaching program series in Tours, Erickson France has also welcomed 33 new coaching learners this September in Paris, Lyon and Geneva (Switzerland).
Erickson France was launched in Tours in October 2018 with a training run by Eric Hilario – an Erickson Certified Professional Coach (ECPC), ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC) and Director of Cabinet PROPULSE. The first series was dubbed “Champagne” to celebrate the new beginning, and the second named '“Phoenix” as a metaphor for transformation and rebirth.
After six months, the program launched in Lyon, under the supervision of coordinator, Edwige Giron-Flekinger. The two groups in Lyon were trained by Magdalena Giec and Moëra Saule and given the names “Imagine” and “Les marcheurs éclairés” (The Enlightened Walkers).
Another 20 future coaches were welcomed as Erickson Paris opened its doors in September 2019, coordinated by Mary Kennedy. This group felt very powerful and significant in their engagement, naming themselves “YES we coach”!
At the same time, in Switzerland's “Ecole Internationale de Geneve” a new group of coaches, the “Travelers”, began their coaching journey with Erickson trainers Zerrin Baser, Gaby da Silva and Maciej Swiezy and Elena Radii, as coordinator.
We wish the Erickson France team all the best as they continue their work towards changing the world, one conversation at a time!
