Our vocation

Valérie is a great professional who, in addition to her coaching and personal skills, provides relevant tools to define or confirm our career orientation. Thanks to the Mental’O® methodology, I was able to quickly define a realistic action plan in the short and medium term. “Know yourself” is the first and mandatory step to move further at work and in life. Thank you very much Mental’O® and Valérie!
