Isabelle Claus Teixeira
Head of Talent Management and Entrepreneur
Isabelle brings 20 years of international HR, Leadership Development and Organizational Development experience, as well as her award-winning solutions in the field of executive transitions to her clients. She has worked and lived in 8 countries, experiencing cross-cultural challenges first-hand and developing her own cultural agility between Western, Asian and Russian cultures. She has also worked in 5 different industries that brings her a broad understanding of corporate realities and dynamics. She is currently Head of Talent Management & OD for a major pharmaceutical company, in charge of the Asia Pacific, Russia and Japan regions (spanning 20 countries) and is now setting up her own consulting and coaching practice in Singapore and Kyoto.
Her coaching and development philosophy is inspired from the art and philosophy of kintsugi, that makes no attempt to hide the damage in an object, but rather illuminates it (by repairing it with gold) as cracks, knocks and repairs are simply an event in the life and makes the broken object more beautiful because of those. "The vicissitudes of existence over time to which all humans are susceptible, could not be clearer than in the breaks, the knocks and the shattering to which ceramic ware too is subject".
Isabelle focuses on the human being behind the job title and has a passion in developing leaders as the persons they want to be first. Her coaching and consulting services focus in on executive and transition coaching, career development and design, and facilitating team and organisational culture interventions.
