Sylvaine Messica created the French branch in 2016
Last week I was in Paris with my global People Development & Learning team and together we participated in a Theatre based Improv workshop which was just out of the world. Sylvaine MESSICA is amazing facilitator and have ability to make any group better through experiential activities. She is creative and innovative. I’ve always believed that the people you work with are what makes the job worthwhile. Thanks for the incredible memories.
All the trainees are very satisfied with this excellent, informative and dynamic training. Sylvaine Messica, very professional and experienced on the subject, was able to bring real added value to everyone’s expectations and concerns. The trainees learned a lot about human relationships, attitudes and behaviours to adopt in delicate or difficult situations. The importance of taking a step back and remaining benevolent was also highlighted in order to find optimal solutions.
Dear Sylvaine, Your intervention was for me a true revelation! Your enthusiasm is a blessing ,at a time when we are being told about crisis, that you have proven to us that everything is possible everything is to be done! Let me show you my gratitude! cordially Romano Basilico real estate coach at ERA.
What I can do as a return from my cohesion seminar with you is that team cohesion is always there! And that’s the bottom line. Initially, the artistic orientation could be disturbing, but the idea was to demonstrate that we all have a deep capacity to “dare”, to “free ourselves” to achieve performance through authenticity. Often it is the eyes of others that inhibi or slow down. In fact, I realized that the whole team accepted the game, to affirm the I in the WE. Because the company is also and to a large extent created by its employees. Today, the approach of undertaking, innovating, “appropriation” is very present in my warehouse: even better, it has become cultural. Positioning everyone at the centre of the business, regardless of population, is a strength to this day. The customers feel it, the performance is at the appointment. The approach undertaken is well perennial. See you soon
Sylvaine facilitated 2 days of leadership training for our school, ESC AUVERGNE, in January 2015. 200 students were present for an interactive, participative and innovative “training-conference”. Sylvaine has an extraordinary energy, a passion to transmit and has made her 2 days a success.
Thanks to Sylvaine’s conference on Positive and Creative Leadership in our company Experian, the participants took height on their projects. Sylvaine has given the keys so that managers and entrepreneurs ask themselves the right questions and know how to answer them. The strength of her intervention also lies in sharing her own experience. Sylvaine is a speaker who knows how to make participants interact.
Bravo and thank you
With 6 other sales colleagues, we were trained for 2 days in Sylvaine Messica’s negotiation techniques. We were delighted with this workshop, very fun and effective. We managed to assimilate (instantly) all the techniques she could give us. After the internship, during our customer/prospect meetings, my colleagues and I had the opportunity to apply the techniques with immediate results, including a better defense of our business conditions and the right to say NO to the requirements of our interlocutors. The course is also very effective for: team cohesion and motivation
to learn to negotiate well beyond the customer relationship And thanks to this, we achieved a historic month of March in terms of order taking. This training is a success from every point of view!!
Sylvaine puts her dual expertise in negotiation and improvisational theatre to work for an amazing concept: the negotiation match®. In a few hours, Sylvaine brings out unexplored and formidable negotiation resources in sales people: creativity, quality of the negotiation relationship, ability to improvise within a fixed framework. Guaranteed efficiency in face to face!
A future manager’s look at En haut de l’affiche pedagogy and its managerial vision.
This new type of management and approach practiced by Sylvaine Messica, sometimes with atypical practices, has enabled us to support our group in a dynamic of solidarity in a very short time. During my school career, I had the opportunity to learn the “big” types of management. But none of these modules had highlighted how to build an effective and sustainable team. For me, this vision, much more human than theoretical, marked the true meaning of the word “solidarity” in work. Having played team sports for many years, it has been a long time since I felt like I belonged to a group with a COMMON objective.
An example to follow for the future.
As future entrepreneurs/managers we are preparing to manage teams, and this seminar will remain in my memories for a very long time. I have always considered the human being to be at the heart of the company and I will not hesitate to call on En Haut de l’Affiche and Sylvaine Messica’s team building techniques that make originality rhyme with a motivated team. I will go out of the ordinary by organizing original seminars to strengthen the team and develop the feeling of belonging to a group. The benefits of the seminar at En Haut de l’Affiche: An indispensable experience for a supportive team. Allows you to get off the beaten track and put forward an originality, return to a simplicity in human relationships.
Leaving the classical theories of management types. Strong development of the feeling of belonging to a group Building trust and solidarity: essential elements for good group cohesion.
I called upon the services of En Haut de l’Affiche on two occasions this year, through the creation of a route: from the team building seminar of my team of a dozen employees, to negotiation training, to the concept created by EN HAUT DE l’AFFICHE “the negotiation match®”. In both modules, the flexibility and versatility of these ” customised ” programmes have enabled the team’s
links to be strengthened in concrete terms. Moreover, the negotiation seminar, and particularly, the negotiation match© is a real plus compared to traditional negotiation training sessions in terms of its “eventdriven” side closer to real situations. These emergency situations allow us to let go and invite to the negotiating table both the adrenaline and the good stress that motivates us professionally. To consume without moderation !
We are a consultancy firm specialized in commercial real estate and our activity has been impacted by the effects of the global and then European financial crisis. In a mutating environment, we wanted to support our “Expertise immobilière” team in setting up a new organization, managing change and developing team cohesion, with the aim of mobilising individual and collective motivation and optimizing our operational performance.
In this context, we called on Sylvaine Messica from “En Haut de l’Affiche” to organize a seminar adapted to our context. Sylvaine Messica’s contribution was integral to the design and organization of the seminar. In this way, she helped us to identify the right place, she advised us on the optimal duration and content. The seminar took the form of various workshops, games and simulation exercises without forgetting the moments of relaxation and exchange and each was accompanied by Sylvaine’s benevolent coaching. Operationally, this experience was particularly beneficial and the efforts made by the entire team in the months that followed enabled us to achieve our objectives. Our team has found a better cohesion as well as the essential motivation to pursue new challenges.
After a long time working on the result… The growing complexity of the business has led me to wonder about the “conditions of the result”….
The consulting mission, led by Sylvaine Messica, helped me redefine the mission of my sales teams and open a new path for my managers: “to lead the change from a manager to a coach-coach posture”.
From personal coaching to team seminars, I discovered: kindness, co-contribution, letting go, the pleasure of sharing, communicating, developing… And seeing my managers bring out coaching qualities that I never suspected.
To be “En haut de l’affiche”…… it cannot be proclaimed, it must be built
En Haut de l’Affiche has been our partner for several years. The interventions (cohesion seminars, coaching, in management and personal development training) realized by Sylvaine Messica and by the team of En Haut de l’Affiche, were very appreciated and very effective. Trainees at each session wrote to me to express their satisfaction, their desire to go further.
They admit that the formula surprised them, sometimes pushed them, by bringing them towards a more effective awareness. It is an opening without accusation, they went far enough for some in the discovery of their personality. This is possible thanks to those who work in benevolence. They are very attentive to the reactions of the trainees. There are no contraints and many results.
I understood in a very operative way what it meant to “let go”. Indeed, improv exercises are very challenging. I immediately felt the moment when I was running away or when I was caught up by my thoughts which limit creativity and therefore freedom. Because this work is a mirror of what happens in life.
I now look at my lectures as stand up shows. It sometimes makes you dizzy to have this new perspective and that’s what gives a lot of credit to this coaching.”
What do you learn from it?
“Let nothing equal discipline and work. That we don’t evolve in the easy way. I have the feeling to find a way of working which looks like the one I had when I was running. En haut de l’Affiche is high level!
The seminar organized for the Human Resources teams in France on the theme of change management and led by the team of En haut de l’affiche was very well experienced by employees.
After a first effect of surprise and questioning amusement, the actors joined them and were able to observe and note their reactions in order to reproduce them at the end of the day in a humorous form.
The theatrical intervention formula has been very well received by the collaborators, allowing them to de-dramatize their daily life in an innovative way.
The style and tone of the interventions were very well received and the actors were as sympathetic as they were effective.
Anett is a family business with 23 locations and 1400 employees.
In a highly competitive field of activity, Anett’s difference is its model: organized and structured so that the decision-making center is closest to the customer. The particularity of our service business is its industrial dimension: it is predominant. Customer satisfaction is linked to our ability to provide a quality service every day, throughout the duration of the contract, in accordance with the commitments and expectations of our customers. Our difference is our working community, and we want each and every employee to make a lasting contribution every day, so that our service is acknowledged by all our customers. It is in this context that we have decided to launch a training program for all our managers, so that they become leaders who put their teams in motion.
To motivate and mobilize our managers to invest in this training, we wanted a model that breaks with “standard” training… The launch of this program was done through an event that I asked Sylvaine to create and lead with her team. A few months later, the training cycle was born for managers (10 days of training on 5 modules) and sales people (3 days on 2 modules) and managers followed by customers (3 days) and individual coaching of managers.
Sylvaine did the engineering and designed the model with our HRD. She was totally involved in the project and brilliantly carried and animated all the training modules with great commitment.
At the end of this two-year cycle, which has brought all the company’s managers on board, I can say that we have all lived together, very strong moments and that we are coming out strengthened.
The Agil’Anett project also linked sales people to their managers-coaches, in fact Sylvaine trained all sales people, internal and external customer follow-up managers (sales, negotiation, assertiveness), and managers were trained to continue developing skills and motivation through this leader-coach position.
This year, we have had a record year in turnover since Anett’s creation (80 YEARS) ! We have seen all our managers progress, individually in their posture but also collectively in their ability to work differently. I am convinced that for the first time training will create value and for a long time…
Choosing Sylvaine means choosing agility and human values with the benefit of commercial results!
Sylvaine is a unique person thanks to her positive energy, her smile and her enthusiasm.
Her dynamic spontaneity quickly builds the confidence of the people around her.
Sylvaine brings out the best in each of us, through her spontaneity, to put it at the forefront and exploit it.
This meeting will not leave me indifferent.
Thanks for being you.
I am pleased to recommend Sylvaine as well as her team at En Haut de l’Affiche for their creative approach to driving home key business concepts in a creative and lively manner. We used Sylvaine’s expertise in the launch of our approach to Running Training Like a Business with our Partners Advisory Board. Sylvaine spent much time to understand the concept and key business take-aways before proposing a multi-lingual, theatrical performance that our partners and my team members will remember for a very long time. Most companies come in, do their thing, and walk away. En Haut de l’Affiche actively followed-up to ensure that we had a success.
Sylvaine has an extraordinary capacity to coach you in a very short time and to make you feel confident and ready to meet any new challenge! I got a chance to have been trained by her twice and always think about her shared experience and her advises when I have to deal the important contracts with my customers. Her ability to inspire you is very helpful not only when you start your professional life but also when you progress !
