Dr Ghislaine Caulat

MA, MSc, DProf

 

Ghislaine has over 15 years of consulting experience across industries and continents. Having also worked for many years as a manager at Daimler and Beiersdorf she has a good understanding of what it takes to lead and manage in complex multinational organisations.

Ghislaine often works at the intersection of leadership, strategy and change and helps leaders to make strategies happen. Over the last 12 years she has led and/or contributed to major change and development projects for global organisations in the automotive, engineering, telecommunication and pharmaceutical industries as well as for global organisations in the public sector.

She has been researching in the field of virtual leadership since 2003 and specialises in helping teams to become high performing virtual teams and leaders to lead effectively remotely. She is convinced that organisations with virtual leadership capabilities will achieve a considerable competitive advantage, not only because of substantial savings in terms of costs, time and carbon footprint. They will also become faster at developing and implementing strategies and at cultivating learning and change globally. Ghislaine has developed specific and innovative approaches to leading and learning virtually, which have been implemented by many of her clients with very convincing results (personal references can be provided upon request). In the meantime she has worked with over 27 global organisations and has trained and coached over 1500 leaders from all continents, in the field of virtual collaboration and virtual leadership.  She has also trained over 100 consultants to become facilitators of Virtual Action Learning.

Ghislaine can help in several ways including:

  • coaching and/or training leaders facing the challenge to lead remotely
  • training teams to become high performing virtual teams
  • coaching existing teams on specific virtual projects
  • planning, designing and facilitating virtual strategy and/or change and/or innovation processes
  • designing and delivering virtual large group events
  • facilitating virtual action learning
  • developing virtual facilitators
  • developing and implementing virtualisation strategies to help organisations to become less dependent on the face-to-face while increasing their innovative potential.

Ghislaine has lived and worked in eight different countries and speaks seven languages. She works in English, German, Spanish and French.

She currently lives in Mexico City and has created her own company BLACK GAZELLE dedicated to developing and promoting virtual leadership in organisations. She also works as an Associate Client Director of Ashridge Business School in the United Kingdom.
