Frederic works as an adviser, coach, and facilitator with corporate leaders who feel called to explore fundamentally new ways of organizing. His work—and the research for his upcoming book—draws on two strands:
- His deep understanding of the inner workings of organizations, which he developed among other during the years he worked as an organization and strategy consultant with McKinsey & Company, where he was an Associate Principal.
- His longstanding fascination with the topic of human development and his own joyful journey of personal and spiritual growth.
Frederic has worked intimately with people at all levels of organizations. He has witnessed how the organizations that make up the fabric of our modern lives (large corporations and small businesses, hospitals and schools, nonprofits and government agencies) are for the most part places of quiet and pervasive suffering, places inhospitable to the deeper yearnings of our souls. The intuition that more is possible—that we must be capable of creating truly soulful organizations that invite all of our human potential into the workplace—has led him to engage into groundbreaking research: how a currently emerging, new form of consciousness is bringing forth a radically more soulful, purposeful, and productive organizational model.
Reinventing Organizations, the upcoming book based on this research, has been variously described as “groundbreaking,” “brilliant,” “spectacular,” “impressive,” and “world-changing” by some of the most respected scholars in the field of human development.
