If you're a leader, manager, entrepreneur or a consultant looking to achieve success with more peace of mind - then you probably already know that ...
The speed of change has accelerated & you have to find a way to cope with it
You can't keep working hard all the time & exhaust yourself or your team
You'll have to change some of your current business techniques and leadership habits
So, I'll spare you the spiel.
No need to be a broken record and convince you of something that's already been drilled deep into your entrepreneurial mind.
HERE'S WHAT YOU
MIGHT NOT KNOW
By adopting the business techniques and leadership habits better-suited for our fast-changing digital times, you'll set yourself apart from traditional managers. You'll...
Better cope with all the changes
There is currently one constant element across all markets: Change. Change is accelerating and impacting us or our teams very hard. When you and your team are able to better cope with all the changes, the pressure drops, you feel less overwhelmed and more in control again. You’ll be able to seize many more opportunities and avoid more threats than your competitors. You might even be ready to tackle your next bigger responsibility.
Become an effective and successful leader
You know you can’t do it alone anymore, you need your team or colleagues to become successful in digital times, especially with the increased complexity. With the skills and techniques to inspire and motivate others, people will follow you and help you reach your big goals. You’ll manage to get them on board despite the big challenges. Imagine how you’d feel surrounded by enthusiastic colleagues ready to tackle all the challenges that lay ahead.
Achieve a great work life balance and peace of mind
You know that when you’re full of energy and peaceful, you have more clarity, you are more creative, you are able to get out of your comfort zone, you can step back and analyze things more clearly. How would your life look like if you had more time to do the things you like and to be with the people you love? What would you do with your new-found energy and with all the time you manage to save?
Accelerate and support the digital transformation of your organization
One in three companies disappears within five years, big or small and probably your market is changing drastically. By playing a big role in the successful transformation of your organization, you’ll get a lot of recognition from your management and your colleagues. What if you could change the current culture of your organization and pave the road for success? What if you could attract the right talent?
Find your spark again & have fun
You get better results with passion and fun than with stress and resignation. When everything is hard and difficult, you lose your energy and motivation. Too many leaders have lost their spark, their sense of purpose. But you know that when you find that spark back, you can move mountains and people will follow you wherever you go.
Perhaps your organization is already in the middle of a digital or cultural transformation. But because they approach it with traditional techniques and habits, you all end up with too many things to do.
The plans change all the time, sometimes even before the implementation has started. Because the changes and problems are so frequent, you spend most of your time in meetings trying to align than doing your actual job. Some people are so tired of this inefficiency that they focus only on their job description or their own objectives. That’s when you get silo thinking.
You sometimes can get really impatient with your colleagues or with your team because things are not progressing as fast as you’d like. And you also have to deal with an inefficient decision process. With decisions that might even do more harm than good. And that frustrates you!
You still want to deliver great results despite all these problems, you are committed to succeed. You might work harder and harder to deliver everything, in the evenings or weekends too. You might start sacrificing things that matter to you, sports, healthy food, family time, hobbies. And despite the hard work, you don’t always manage to deliver what is expected from you because of reasons outside of your control. You feel bad because of that, sometimes like a loser.
The stress is getting high internally and the burnouts have started. Maybe you have times when you know you’ve gone too far. The pressure to deliver is very high. You might start losing your spark, your motivation. You might not recognize yourself anymore. You have become very good at pretending that everything is OK. Sometimes, you can even fool yourself. You show up as this super(wo)man who is in control, who is strong, who knows what to do but deep down you can feel the disconnection, the awkwardness, the unease.
And maybe you knew this, you figured this out. And you have started implementing new business techniques. But you face a lot of chaos and it still doesn’t deliver the results you expect because your organization doesn’t have the appropriate culture or mindset.
You have already tried changing the culture and the mindset. You might have even tried changing some of your leadership habits without success. As soon as you’re under pressure, your old habits take over. How often have you thought of giving up? Of changing jobs? But it seems to be similar in other organizations. You have to figure this out. You have to find a way to deal with all this. And because you have so many things to deliver and your time is very precious, you cannot afford to veer off course, to try a million of different things. Because with every failed attempt, you lose energy and precious time.
Luckily for you, there are not many leaders who have figured it out yet. In all likelihood, your competitors have either failed or are still struggling with their transformation as well.
Even if you’re late to the party, there is still a golden opportunity for you to jump in and clean up the mess. You can still set yourself apart from other leaders and become really successful with a better work life balance.
The 5 Mindset Shifts You Need to Make Right Now To Become successful in digital times without being overwhelmed
This is the biggest mistake traditional leaders make. They are so busy solving today’s problems that they don’t see they are digging their own hole.
A problem is often a sign that a situation has changed and that you need to adapt. It’s often a symptom of something bigger. But if you keep working on the symptoms without treating the cause, it will be like getting the water out of a boat without fixing the hole at the bottom. You’ll eventually exhaust yourself and drown.
Do you think the people at Canon had more time than the people at Kodak?
Do you think the people at Apple had more time than the people at Nokia?
There are habits you can learn that will get you out of this vicious circle of always working operationally.
By investing time in your transformation, you will save a lot of time and peace of mind.
Finding a good strategy is not always easy. At some point, I was convinced that we had found the right strategy and had an implementation plan. So, everything was okay, right? Wrong. It wasn’t enough. And I want to illustrate this with an interesting fact.
In my previous organization, I had to go through several sales processes because my shareholders wanted to sell the company. Twice, I told my whole strategy to two of my biggest competitors. I didn’t like it, but I had to because they made an offer to acquire us.
They knew everything—what we were going to do, how, when we would launch our new products, what the competitive advantage was for each brand, who was working in the organization … They knew everything, but the sale didn’t go through. It was like playing poker with my cards—and only my cards—on the table.
I was devastated at first, completely discouraged. How was I going to reach my budget with my biggest competitor knowing my every move? And still, we achieved great results, better results than they did, and that was because we not only worked on the strategy, but we actively worked on changing the culture as well.
At first, I didn’t really see the importance of culture. Within the organization, we agreed on some new strategies. I thought all went well, but we didn’t deliver on the strategies because people were still working with their old habits. It isn’t because we know something or because we agree on something that a new behavior becomes a habit.
And the culture is the sum of all the habits within an organization. If we don’t spend a lot of energy in changing the habits of an organization, the culture will eat the strategy for breakfast. Once we understood this, we focused more on changing the culture, and that was what our competitors underestimated.
By understanding how culture works and how you can change it, implementation will be 10X easier.
Some leaders think you need to have a certain position in the organization to change things. Others think they cannot change people. And they are partly right. Trying to change people by telling them what to do or with other traditional methods doesn’t work.
But once you understand how we function as human beings, you’ll become more powerful than you’ve ever been. You’ll get more things done and will face less resistance.
But you can only change others by creating a safe environment and by changing yourself. For both elements, you’ll need new habits.
Have you ever noticed that you changed something that brought you success and then suddenly people around you start copying you?
With the right leadership habits, you’ll have more power than you ever had before.
You might have tried changing some behaviors or habits in the past without success. And after several attempts, your conclusion might be that “you are who you are, and you can’t change”.
And it is true change is hard, but it is often hard because we don’t understand how habits are formed. You might have tried to change rationally, through your neocortex. But did you know that behaviors are situated in your limbic brain (center of emotions) and your reptilian brain (center of body functions)?
By working with the limbic and reptilian brain (with your emotions and body), you’ll change much more rapidly than only with your rational brain. You don’t have to imagine crazy things but by practicing instead of just understanding, by prototyping instead of just making a plan, by telling a story instead of stating facts, by changing your disposition instead of judging yourself, … you’ll change yourself (and others) much more rapidly.
You can change once you understand how.
You have seen people climb the ladder and change. But you don’t like how they changed. You don’t want to become another person like them, you like who you are. Because of that, you decided to accept things you don’t like as a form of compromise.
You are right. I saw many leaders transform for the worse once they climbed the ladder. But that is because they show behaviors driven by their fears instead of driven by their values. And usually, those leaders don’t stay successful very long or are very unhappy. Do they really contribute to the success of the organization or only their own success?
When you succeed in managing your fears, you can start showing behaviors that are in line with your values, you’ll start becoming your authentic self. Once I understood this, not only did I reach greater results, got more peace of mind but I also became much more powerful than before.
It’s by managing your fears that you become your authentic self and that your impact will increase.
I used to be the CEO of a media company and was working really hard for too little impact. By adopting new business techniques and new leadership habits, I succesfully transformed my organization with more peace of mind. Watch my story here.
Ready to follow a proven roadmap to transform and become a successful leader of digital times?
You now understand why many transformations fail and why many leaders are not successful in digital times. And if you’re still with me reading this…

You probably understand the effect that stress can have on your health and your productivity. Managing your energy is crucial to decrease your stress levels. But you’ll also learn how important is it to decrease resistance to change, to tackle challenges, go out of your comfort zone and to grow. It’s a crucial element of a successful transformation.
Today’s workplace is filled with fears and many decisions are based on fears. And when we are under pressure, we’ll often show conditioned behaviors driven by fear instead of the behaviors that will lead to great outcomes. As human beings, we have been designed to survive, not to be happy or successful.
In this module, you’ll learn how you can manage your fears. Once you free yourself from those, you’ll not only show up much more authentically but you’ll also more courage and freedom to act than ever before.

Focus in chaotic times
With the constant changes and the requests coming from everywhere, you know it is key to focus if you want success in digital times. But how can you focus in this chaos? Focus means saying no to people, opportunities and threats. When you say no to something, it won’t solve itself magically and can generate chaos that you’ll learn to accept by letting go.
It is by learning to let go that you’ll have more control over your life and that you’ll be able to focus. You will have a choice: The choice to controlling what you want and to let go of others. Many leaders don’t have that choice because they can’t let go and so can’t focus. You’ll also learn how to work structurally instead of operationally and again save time & energy.

… You don’t have enough time to follow this course. You are too busy.
Pascale is the Managing Director of a large company. In the last years, she went through 11 mergers and is confronted with different cultures. She had great difficulties to get everyone aligned and was confronted with the digitalization of her company as well. If there was one thing, she was lacking, it was time. She didn't have the time to do all the things that were expected from her at work. She had way too many things to do. But when she heard about this course, her intuition told her to follow it. She thought she would revisit a lot of things about leadership because she had already followed a lot of leadership courses. But to her surprise, everything in this course was new. The techniques she learned helped her to better understand the reactions and behaviors of her colleagues and to improve her leadership style. She learned to pause, step back and focus on what is really important. And she suddenly sees new possibilities and options to choose from. The course brought her a lot of peace in her leadership, in her private life and in her relationships with her colleagues. She just finished the course, but her colleagues already see a huge difference. When confronted with difficulties, they see she stays calm, analyses the situation and acts very calmly and focused. That is a side her colleagues didn't know from her. Following this course made her win time, not lose time. Time for her, for her colleagues, for her company, for her friends and for her family of course.
This is the biggest myth. People believe they have to work harder to face all the changes coming from the digitalization. But with the QiLeader course, you will learn new habits and techniques better adapted for this fast-changing digital world. You will not work harder but smarter and win time. Moreover, the lessons have been designed to be maximum 20-minutes long to take care of your precious time.
… an online course is not for you. You need to feel connected to others.
Caroline was interested in the course because her company goes through a digital transformation. She expected new information mostly but didn't think it could really transform her. She had followed online courses in the past. Those were very much focused on acquiring knowledge, not on transforming people. She was positively amazed by the QiLeader course. The combination of videos, cases, evaluations, webinars, questions, tools, notebooks, exercises, the comments of the other participants, the answers she received from Murielle on her own questions or thoughts made it all a great experience. She felt less alone because of this combination. She also participated to a learning group and a life event which made her feel part of a new community of authentic leaders.
“I managed to get out of the “survival mode” with the QiLeader course. Week after week, I saw myself transforming and adopting new habits. I handle things more peacefully today and I am more available for my team members. The team manages things more peacefully as well and can take a step back to better analyze things.” Although the QiLeader course is online, you will be part of a community of leaders facing similar struggles than yours. You will truly feel supported and less alone. The course has been designed to be very experiential and practical too so that you can immediately implement the techniques and see the impact.
… you can't change. You've already tried so why bother?
That is something Karine believed for many years. You are who you are. In French, there is an expression. “Chassez le naturel, il revient au galop” or a leopard can't change its spots. Karine tried to change some of her habits in the past without success. It only made her feel even more miserable because she couldn't stick to a new habit. She wanted to give up and just accept that she couldn't change.
Then she followed this course and learned about neuroplasticity, about the mastery path, about how to change behaviors not only with the neocortex but also with the other two brains and how to apply a methodology to adopt new habits. She understood much better now how habits or neuroplasticity works, she applied the principles, practiced and finally managed to change some habits. She understood why she couldn't change in the past, what she was doing wrong and how to practice her new habits now.
Today, not only does she feel better, she looks better, she is healthier and has become a better leader. You will also understand why you didn’t manage to change in the past. It wasn’t your fault, you didn’t know the right techniques. With the QiLeader course, you are going to become the leader you always wanted to be.
… you will change but it won’t make a difference because your organization will still be the same.
Stéphanie started the course more for herself than for her company. She was aware things needed to change in the company, but many directors were blaming the context, the market or the heavy competition for the bad results. She was convinced the culture needed to change with the habits of the leaders. She followed the course and started applying the principles to herself.
Because she started to see things with new eyes and to change her habits, it had an effect on her colleagues as well. At first, they were reluctant to hear from these new techniques but then they started to see the change in Stéphanie, the impact on her results and her new-found peacefulness. Her colleagues became curious. That is when she started to share some of the principles with them. It had a real impact and gave them energy and hope that things can change. And the company is starting to change in the right direction.
Tom had a similar experience and is starting to see great results around empowerment within his organization. Be the change you want to see in the world. Both Tom and Stéphanie experienced this and had an impact on the others around them because of their transformation.
You will have an impact on your organization and if it is still not enough, you will find the courage and techniques to either do even more for your company or to open your wings elsewhere.
… your work will never approve the budget.
Anne wanted to follow the course but wasn't sure the budget would be approved. I send her a methodology to get better results from a conversation. It is a methodology I used very often with my shareholders to get what I want. The result: Not only was the budget approved but her CEO enrolled as well. Curious about the methodology that will help you get the budget for this course, a salary increase or something else. Go to https://www.qileader.com/trade/
… there is no place for authenticity in our current short-term economy.
For years, I had this belief. I had to pretend to be someone else to be successful in my career. I wasn't the same person at home as at work. I showed strength in all situations. I was in charge, in control of things and showed that. I was certain of things. I had to talk to be convincing and show assertiveness and I had to take responsibility. Even when it was hard, I smiled and said everything was ok. I didn't show my flaws and worked even harder to compensate for those. I had even managed to shut down my sensations to pretend everything was ok. But then at some point, I faced many problems and the results were not good enough. I felt really bad but didn't show it. And I felt really alone.
Because by showing up as this wonder woman, I had managed to alienate my colleagues from me, even some friends. I came at the verge of a burnout and that is what I needed to realize that this superwoman behavior was not helping me anymore and was not leading to good results. I followed the ontological training course and started to show my vulnerability, to be authentic. It helped me create really great relationships with my colleagues. Some would do anything for me. But also, that is when we became really successful financially and humanly. And even my shareholders and financial advisers liked this authenticity. I am convinced they saw courage in how I was showing up.
There are much more leaders going or wanting to go in that direction than you might think. They don’t always have the guts to go for it or to discuss it openly. But with the QiLeader course, you will find a community of people daring to go for authenticity. You will definitely not be alone in this quest and that is how I believe, we will change the way businesses are run, one authentic leader a time.
… including emotions and the body in leadership will feel weird because you’re very rational.
That used to be me. I am a very rational person. I analyze things, I like to read, and I even felt an aversion for all this talk about meditation, the body mind connection, … I would listen politely but think: “Yeah, right, you are naive but if it works for you, it's ok. But not for me.” And when I started to face many issues and to feel bad, I started of course with a rational approach. I started to read a lot about new business techniques, about stress, about how our brain functions, about personal development, ... I read a lot and started to understand things. But it didn't help me.
I understood things but didn't really manage to change them or to change my behavior. That is when I had this intuition. It felt like it was shouting to me: “You have to get out of your head. You are overthinking things and you are stuck in your thoughts. Get out of your head!” So, I choose to follow the ontological coaching training (mental, emotion and body) because I wanted to continue using my head of course but I felt I needed the emotions and the body part as well (also called somatics). I knew I had to do this but was afraid at the same time.
I learned that it is very difficult to change behaviors through the prefrontal cortex (our rational brain). I learned that the body and emotions play a crucial role in learning and changing behaviors. Not only because that is how I finally managed to transform but also because that is where I saw the best results with my coachees. And I am talking about small, almost invisible shifts with your body and emotions, nothing crazy.
… you like who you are and don’t really want to change
Fred is a very creative person. He has 100 new ideas in a day and has a very enthusiastic personality. He loves to learn new things and to try new things. Unfortunately, he doesn't stick to things, he rarely finishes something he has started. He changed jobs many times in the past. Always starting with a lot of enthusiasm and great feedback to then give up and change job because a nicer opportunity presented itself. People told him he should work on practicing more stability and that he should be more organized. At some point, he tried that but that was not only too hard, he didn't notice a big difference. On top of that he did not want to become another person, a boring person. He liked being creative and enthusiastic.
He didn't want to change that side of his personality. But not changing was costing him a lot in terms of failures but also in terms of peacefulness. That is when he followed this course. He learned some techniques to increase his awareness and to be more at choice. Instead of seeing himself as this kind of person, or that kind of person, he could adapt his behavior to reach the outcomes he desired in function of a situation. He learned to practice the QiLeader dispositions, in particular the anchored one.
Today, when he needs more stability, he can switch to that disposition and reaches better results. But when he needs his creative side, he still has access to it as well.

… you don’t have a team. You are not a manager
Eric doesn't have a team. He works in a large organization that just merged and the mood is very bad internally. He is not really happy in his job anymore and doesn't believe he can change anything. His stress is quite high. He enrolled to the course more out of curiosity of this new world but without expectations that it would change anything for him. He hesitated at first of course because he doesn't see himself as a leader and does not have a team. He is an expert in his domain. But this course changed a lot for him. He realized that some things were preventing him from evolving in his career and he had quite some frustration inside him.
This course brought him a higher level of peace, of confidence and gave him techniques to communicate better. He started to change his behavior at work and noticed that this new behavior had a positive impact on his colleagues and on the overall mood. He thought he couldn't change anything at work because he isn't a team leader but now he realizes that he is much more powerful than he thought he could be.
You don’t have to have a team to follow this course. You will even increase your impact on others even when you are not their manager. Your relationship with your colleagues and your boss will improve with the techniques and you’ll get more done without feeling squeezed by bad decisions.
… you already know a lot about agile or digital transformation
Laurent was in the middle of a career change. He was not stressed, on the contrary he was enthusiastic. After spending many years as a senior leader in the distribution, he has decided to launch his career as a consultant. His specialty is Data & Digital Transformation. Laurent is an expert and hesitated to follow this course because he was afraid he would not learn many new things. But he came to one of my conference and discovered a whole new world of leadership that would truly help him in his job as a digital consultant.
This course brought him a whole new way of thinking, a new way of dealing with issues and of seeing an organization. He learned things that were completely new to him, very practical and easy techniques that he could immediately implement with his customers. He understands even better how to manage organizational change, how to transform the structure of an organization and has adopted a completely new way of thinking that is extremely productive. Thanks to the principles in this course, he gets even better results with his customers on data & digital transformation.
This course is very complementary to the new business techniques. These often require a new culture or mindset that is often standing in the way of a successful transformation. By learning these new techniques, consultants & coaches can serve their customers even better and lead their project toward a success.
