During the past 7 years, her path took her from a design agency in Paris to a big tech company in Amsterdam, and all the way back to the beautiful Pyrénées in the south of France.

 

She worked with many different clients, from startups to insurance companies, and  led agile tech teams working on one of the biggest e-commerce in the world. Along the way, she got to wear many hats: designer, researcher, strategist, manager, team leader, mentor, trainer…

 

Her focus gradually shifted from products to people and organisations, and she decided to hone her people skills with an in-depth, ICF accredited coach training.

 

Today, she partners with professionals from the Tech industry and work with them on team dynamics, agile methodologies, organisational design and 1:1 coaching around leadership and transitions.

Alice
Cordier

Coach

Alice Cordier guides you to the path towards BALANCE. 

After a career start in sales and marketing Alice was trained in the US and in China in osteopathy and has developed a unique holistic method to connect the body and mind systems to create an optimal stress free flow. 

High performance, whether it be for top artists or business people, is a matter of the perfect dialogue between motor and sensory nervous systems. Through the observation of Chinese kung fu masters while living in China, and through expertise work with world class singers and dancers, I developed a unique method to strengthen the dialogue between the two systems.

It has resulted into BioGuidance ®️ a full body and mind rebalancing workout which aims at dissolving physical and emotional blockages, through a clear step by step path. Top performers regain full control over physical and emotional challenges through deep neuro-muscular de-programmation of old postural habits and conscious re-programmation of healthy breathing and posture in order for them to achieve their maximal potential.

Supporting both the physical performance and the mind allows for major performing artists and high performance managers to train themselves. My method teaches them how to allow themselves to focus on perfection.

Holistic alignment Spiritual Entrepreneurship 
Inspiring Leadership 

 

Passionate about BEing before Doing and the betterment of self, I am dedicated to walking my own conscious journey and inspire others to do the same. 

 

“ (in the) Now, there’s a lot of talk about what we should be doing. What comes next… that gut feeling for our need to progress. Connecting the learnings from those met along the way to see further into the future. Align our potential. Realizing we are not self-made (human) beings; rather that our experiences and education fall short of the true parameters for our complete success.

 

Fortunate, I have been blessed with the significance of this insight along my personal and professional journey. Guided by many amazing moments in life, inspiration remains the source of my drive through many resourceful failures and equally, some extraordinary achievement. As an entrepreneur, an international businessman, and currently a strategic life coach, my focus is clear: connect the energy that brings compassion and authenticity into being. My superpower is in revealing access to your divine self that lies beyond expectation and surrender in pursuit of being extraordinary.
