About Denise Dampierre
“We can not solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them.” – Albert Einstein
Passionate about developing humane leaders, I lead paradigm-shifting workshops to build cooperation and trust.
Through science-based interactive activities, I help employees identify beliefs and behaviors which erect communication barriers and replace them with tools that generate engagement and performance.
These workshops are founded on Adlerian psychology, a science-based approach to develop a sense of belonging and contribution to a group mission.
Positive Communication & Conflict Resolution
Innovation – experimenting, learning (even from mistakes), and solution-finding – rely on mutual respect and constructive communication. That’s what I help create “chez vous.”
Yes, I am both French and American. Ce serait un plaisir d’échanger avec vous en français également.
After a Harvard MBA and a career in marketing, I trained in strength-based change management (Appreciative Inquiry) and in Adlerian Psychology. Upon applying these business tools with post-merger companies to build their new culture…
I tested them on the home front too.
As the mother of 4 boys, I seek to transmit skills for success in life and in living.
Happy @Work & Happy @Home
What does it take to build One. Thriving. Team?
“I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.” – Abraham Maslow
Too many days I felt stuck with a hammer, both at work and at home. There must be more…and I sought out practical ways to enrich communication and relationships.
Today, I help people intentionally create a culture of thriving among colleagues on the job and with employees who are also parents and seek to integrate work and life.
“You have great qualities. You will be truly successful when you realize that other people have great qualities too.” – My uncle to my son
The boys are grown now.
Sooner than later, our kids become our colleagues and tomorrow’s leaders!
P.S. People ask what “SoSooper” means. We become “super” through our “bloopers.”
THANKS to our mistakes we grow in confidence, in wisdom, in adaptability, and more.
“What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.” – Kelly Clarkson
