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.

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


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.
