"I am an associate professor of organizational behavior, a branch of social psychology, at EMLYON. I'm teaching in the ESC (undergraduate) program and the executive MBA, amongst others and I have designed and delivered numerous tailor-made programs for top management (boards of directors, high potentials, middle managers).
I am interested in the human brain and particularly in the "intelligent" use of our emotions and our intuitions in the daily life. My first motivation, as a researcher : to decipher the Da Vinci Code of our sixth sense.
I work with atypical populations such as artists (singers, movie directors, writers, actors), former members of the RAID or officers of the Army, neuroscientists, neuropsychiatrists, speech therapists, CEOs of large companies, journalists, etc. My first objective is to make scientific discoveries more "accessible".
I have published two books in France : " Génération QE (EQ Generation in English) " ( Pearson) and more recently " La Poulpe Attitude (The Octopus Behavior in English) " (Michel Lafon). My new challenge : to uncover the secrets of the human voice."
