Hors-Piste taps into and reveals the best of humans in your organization

Today’s organizational challenges are more and more complex and interconnected. We, at Hors-Piste, assist leaders and their teams in having the powerful conversations and the transformative experiences that allow them to meet these challenges. We are experts in facilitating creative discussions, framing eye-opening questions, and helping organizations navigate through ambiguity to lead them exactly where they need to be.  


Our services are useful to leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, and nonconformists who, like us, wish to create organizations where performance and wellbeing go hand in hand.  

Roadmap Design

We support our clients by charting roadmaps that help them define their aspirations, explore various scenarios, and establish ambitious game plans. We also help teams invest their talents and mobilize their energy for a common project.


Using a variety of cutting-edge facilitation techniques, we create memorable collective experiences for groups, small and large. We help them find meaning, strengthen their relationships, elicit their fullest contribution, and deliver results.


We support our clients in developing their ability to find enlightening solutions to their very real challenges. We ask key questions to help them reconnect to their power, explore situations and possibilities through different angles, and deploy their talents. 

We believe that each business challenge is an invitation to make your organization more agile and thrivable.

Here are the contexts in which we usually navigate :

  • Strategic thinking and planning
  • Organizational transformation
  • Co-design/co-creation initiatives
  • Leadership development
  • Team alignment
  • Work climate, motivation, and commitment
  • Strategic and organizational project development
  • Process review
  • Branding of initiatives

Complementary experiences

The Hors-Piste team offers, in addition to consulting services, complementary experiences that help to find concrete solutions to the challenges you may encounter.


Kompass are innovative and proven workshops that allow employees and teams to regroup and learn strategies that lead to clarity, meaning and vitality in their work. Known to significantly increase employee well being, they reduce symptoms associated to stress, anxiety and burnout. Kompass workshops are designed for managers as well as employees.


Boostalab is a personal HR assistant available at all times. The platform provides a toolkit to address the most common management challenges. The tools are simple, clear and concretely explain how to take action. Perfect for those who have little time but do not want to do things halfway.

Dojo humanité augmentée

What if people were offered opportunities and practices to (re)connect with the most beautiful part of humanity, while providing them with means to neutralize certain toxic behaviors of those around them? To do this, it seemed essential to be able to practice, in a safe and welcoming environment, the experimentation, sharing and training of internal forces. From this desire came two complementary series of workshops: light and shadow.


We combine our expertise in management, organizational development, organizational psychology, project management, coaching, training, and facilitation, to tailor our interventions to your specific needs and to make each process unique.
