RAISE THE BAR
In your career, in your business and in your personal life.
YES! You can raise the bar, starting today.
To raise the bar, you first need to acknowledge where your need to get unstuck.
It will be different for everyone. Indeed, there are so many places where, at one time or another, you’ll get stuck in life. You’ll hit a symbolic wall and stagnate there with no idea how to move forward. Or you simply get a sense of wanting something more meaningful and fulfilling without a clear view of what that is.
You can change that for good.
When you feel dissatisfied, frustrated and blahs-é, the reason is often that you have reached a place where change MUST happen. What got you there?
It could be that circumstances in your life have changed, or that you have reached a time where the status quo is no longer sustainable or acceptable. Or simply, you have come to the proverbial fork in the road, and what lies ahead is murky.
So what do you need? What you need—in fact what we all need—is to regain clarity. Not just any clarity; a laser-sharp, well-earned clarity that will inform you on how to move forward, what to change and how to change it.
BLAHS TO BREAKTHROUGHS
Confusion is the petri dish for breakthroughs. In fact, whenever there is confusion, dissatisfaction, or yearning, the light is at the end of the tunnel. You just don’t see it yet. Without confusion, there would be no progress. So even though it’s an uncomfortable place to be, you’ll need to travel through this phase before you emerge on the other side with clear intentions.
The KEY word here is CLARITY.
This is why I created the Raison D’Être series of workshops. In French “raison d’être” translate literally to “reason for being.”
In designing the program I wanted to give enterprising women a fail-safe method to gain (or re-gain) clarity into their dreams yet unrealized and the tools to achieve them. Since I use the same tools in the workshops (proprietary tools of my own design) as in my business and life coaching practice, I knew the program would work. What I did not know was how well it would work. Now I know.
The women (ranging in age from 32 to 70 years old) who have attended my program not only achieved what they wanted but in addition, the results they achieved were way beyond what they had imagined.
Indeed, these women had breakthroughs that set them on paths that took them farther than what they had originally planned; from gaining brand-new insights, to re-directing their careers, to launching new projects, to achieving remarkable re-invention.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The program is my brainchild. I created it as a result of what I found was the common problem my clients shared. All had at least one piece of their lives that needed clarity and enrichment. My years of guiding people towards a life true to who they are, gave me these insights.
More than a system, Raison D’Être is a METHOD. It’s flexible, adaptive and it honors the individuality of each participant. In other words, it is NOT, a one-size-fits-all program. This is why so many women call it “an unconventional process.” The program relies on a person’s own natural resourcefulness, creativity and intuition. It teases your subconscious into revealing with brilliant clarity what has true meaning for you.
The difficulties, tragedies or failures you inevitably face in your life can lead you to forget how naturally resourceful and creative you are. So what you need is to reconnect with you. The quintessential you before you got sidetracked or derailed.
Once you connect again with your innate wisdom the New You will emerge. Not another you, but the woman you already are today, just more centered, focused, aware, and whole. And as this best you emerges, you are now ready to achieve greater meaning and fulfillment in your life personally and in your work.
THE FOUR KEY ELEMENTS OF THE PROGRAM LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
In order for you to achieve this new degree of perception and acquire it permanently, I make sure your environment includes six key elements, essential to your learning:
- We meet before beginning the program to establish your own starting point, and discuss what you personally wish to get from the program.
- Then, we meet twice a month throughout the program, to review your strategies, measure your practical understanding of the tools and practices you’ve learned, and keep you on track
- At the end of the program, we meet again to review what you have accomplished, which milestones you’ll need to reach and how your plan of action will keep the traction going.
- You get access to me before, during and after the program.
As I am as invested in your success as you are, my ultimate goal is that your take away from the course will be a deeply felt sense of renewal and confidence built upon the new lifelong set of skills and tools you have acquired.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
This course works BECAUSE it is has a strictly limited numbers of participants. This guarantees maximum results as each person gets extensive personal attention, accountability and support.
The program is a safe and intimate place conducive to deep exploration and personal discovery that could not take place in larger groups.
With only a few participants, each of you will leave the course with clearly defined objectives and an easily implementable plan.
It’s fun, creative and completely unorthodox and uses your own intrinsic gifts to guide you to find answers meaningful to you.
This all boils down to you becoming the best “you” you can be.
You’ll deepen your understanding of what really matters in your life.
You’ll get the tools to identify what you’ve always wanted and how to achieve it.
You’ll know how to transform your desire into a commitment to create.
You’ll understand why it is sometimes important to suspend rational thinking and allow your intuition to be heard, and trusted.
You’ll recognize how external difficulties feed your internal fears and keep you stuck.
WILL IT WORK FOR YOU?
This is where two essential elements come into play: collaboration and desire. Both are required for you to get maximum results.
Together, we create a collaborative alliance in which you have the freedom to explore what you wish to create, safely and fearlessly and I support and guide your journey with attentive dedication to your ultimate success.
Desire counts: your own desire to bring about change, shift or transformation in your life is crucial. If you have it, then, no question about it; the course will work for you. The specific of what you want to change is relevant, thought it is the strength of your desire that determines the degree of success you will achieve.
SO WILL THE PROGRAM WORK FOR YOU?
In a way, this is the easiest and at the same time the hardest question to answer and this is why. It's easy because, I've seen it work, again and again. So, the proof is in the pudding, or in this case, the workshop.
It's hard because I do not know at this point in time, what specifically you want to accomplish. So, the next best thing I can do is give you an example: The story of Wanda, not the fish of course, but a real person who had a real experience. Keep reading to find out more.
WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?
How working with the totality of you — what I call the Power of One — opens you up to new possibilities, perspectives and self-reliance.
How to use your body as a powerful gateway into your inner world with the Three Channels of Wisdom tool; and how connecting to this innate wisdom can deepen your connection to your authentic self.
How to understand your own personal default mechanisms — specifically those holding you back — and use this understanding to go from feeling stranded to moving forward.
How to increase the level of creativity and resilience you already possess, by achieving a better understanding of your core values and personal needs.
How to recognize your Inner Grinch (internal bully and critic), and redirecting its energy towards strengthening your self-confidence.
How to access what’s already within you: what matters in your life TODAY, what’s intrinsic for you to create gazing at your future, and how you will create it.
How to increase your degree of perception, and become infinitely more confident, self-reliant and multi-faceted.
How to listen to the validity and wisdom of your own truth.
All of this will bring about a renewed sense of inner certainty giving you the courage to initiate the changes you want to make.
HOW IS THE PROGRAM STRUCTURED?
The program has an easy to follow, yet complete structure with four distinct components: online LIVE Masterclasses, in person Group Masterclasses, private coaching sessions, and personal work. These take place over a period of three months.
There are eleven live 60-minute online Masterclasses. These live sessions are recorded and you have access to all the Masterclass recordings so you won’t miss anything. At the end of each Masterclass is a Q&A session so that you can interact with the other participants and deepen your understanding of the concepts and tools taught in the class.
IN PERSON GROUP MASTERCLASSES:
There are three two-and-a-half hour Group Masterclass meetings focused on expanding your perspectives and connecting with your fellow participants. These sessions are loads of fun and take place approximately once a month. They are highly productive. This is where you put your learning into practice and gain new insights. Please, please, please do not miss any of these as they will help you accelerate your learning.
PRIVATE COACHING SESSIONS:
There are six private coaching sessions (two per month) with Marie-Christine (that's me ) to insure you stay on track with your ultimate goal. These take place in person — by prearranged appointments — via Skype or in the office. You also get two additional sessions, pre and post program. The first one is designed to define what’s most important for you to accomplish and the second to celebrate your accomplishments, and review your action plan.
These are the practices, assignments and activities designed to give you an intimate understanding of the tools taught in the program, and adapt them to your own needs. You will be receiving workbooks and materials to support you in your work
HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL GET
Three priceless and fundamental tools:

A Better You. A New You. It Is Time
THE STORY OF WANDA
Not the fish of course, but a real person who had a real experience.
I met Wanda at the local Toastmaster International chapter. For those of you who are not familiar with Toastmaster, it is an association that helps people develop strong public speaking skills. That day Wanda gave a 2-minute talk on joy. In her speech, she shared with us that there was no joy in her life and that in fact she had not felt joy in a very long time. A kind and incredibly empathetic woman she has a thriving beauty business and has single-handedly and successfully brought up two boys into adulthood. In spite of this, she felt as she put it, "a vague but constant dissatisfaction with life." After the Toastmaster meeting, I reached out to her and invited her to the program. This is what happened.
During one of our private sessions, we worked on a practice called Mount Everest. Suddenly, she got really quiet. And then, this wide beautiful smile lit up her face and she said "I know what's missing!" What she had reconnected with was something she had completely forgotten. Her love of horses. As a teenager, she had been an accomplished equestrian, and when a drastic event completely altered her life, she had stopped riding. A few weeks into the workshop, after this discovery, Wanda started making changes. She now had a clear idea of what she wanted to do, and began to explore her idea. In the course of our wrapping session, I asked her: "So, Wanda, where is joy now?". And I was rewarded with her beautiful wide smile again. "It's with me every day" she said.
Fast forward to today. Wanda has moved her business and herself to Florida where she is now nurturing abused horses back to health. The first horse she took in is named Tiger.
