Coaching

With a 20yr professional background spanning management consulting with BCG, an MBA from Stanford, 10yrs in the corporate media world to then running the venture capital arm for Time Warner and founding her own start up, Ariane is well positioned to help clients with all aspects of their professional lives. Ariane also has a few decades in the coaching and personal development environment and is unique in being able to have a ‘foot in both of these worlds’.

Executive Coaching is an inquiry-based approach to personal and professional development that is aimed at creating awareness, generating action, and facilitating learning and growth.

It focuses on improving performance by helping individuals to develop and sustain new perspectives, attitudes, skills and behaviors.

Confidentiality and Trust are the most important elements in a coach/client relationship.

Executive Coaching involves:

  • Gathering and giving feedback
  • Identifying development opportunities
  • Building awareness
  • Facilitating solutions by asking powerful questions
  • Setting goals and creating action plans
  • Facilitating learning
  • Supporting and encouraging over the long term
  • Monitoring progress and holding others accountable

Ariane helps clients through radical self-inquiry to lead a more conscious life by making needed changes in their career, health, relationships and spiritual connection. Her area of expertise is what she calls ‘whole-life coaching’, where she finds the path to integrate all aspects of someone’s life, not just focus on one.

Ariane can help you explore an aspect of your life that needs some focus and attention. Themes that can be worked on include:

General Coaching

Founder/Start up Coaching

“My goal is to help you understand your role and responsibility in how to change things, to ask questions so that you may find your voice, your answers, your courage and your ability to take action and to inspire a level of happiness, excitement and purpose you haven’t felt before.” — Ariane

Practicalities

Coaching usually takes place over Skype or Zoom at a time that is convenient for you.

She has worked with people all around the world, (from NYC to the Solomon Islands, and from Silicon Valley to Paris) with folks of all ages and walks of life, from VC’s to CEO’s, single folks to new parents, to those with a health diagnosis or wanting to find a more spiritual purpose in life.

Sessions are between 60-90mins each and usually 2x/month.

Rates are dependent on number of sessions.

Corporate Coaching / Advisory Work

Ariane can be hired to coach both individual and group sessions. She has been on retainer with various companies, helping employees during key life changes for example.

She also acts as a corporate advisor/Board member to start ups or established clients looking for a new direction or perspective, help with fundraising, talent or business development.

"Working with Ariane has been a godsend - I couldn't imagine a better partner as I step into a new mode of leadership. Her insight and support have been invaluable in a challenging and critical time."

"I have been an entrepreneur since I was sixteen and have been well aware of the loneliness of being a creator and a CEO for a while. But I never thought of having a coach because I did not believe a coach could actually understand me. Ariane changed that perception for me. Working with a bright mind who among many other things has been a founder and a CEO, has helped me tremendously. I feel that our work together has helped me become a better human as well as a stronger leader. She is also helping me to become a happier mother."

“Ariane is the best thing that could have happened to us! Not only as we began the journey to launch our startup, but she has been an incredible coach and mentor on our personal and family journey as well. We’ve never met someone who’s as intuitive, focused, wise and inspirational as she is. Going through the stressful journeys of launching a business and starting a family are overwhelming on their own and embarking on both simultaneously would be nearly impossible if it weren’t for Ariane’s coaching, guidance, and mentorship. We’re so grateful to have her in our lives and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to grow or navigate any life changes. She’s truly the best!”
