What we stand for

At CM-CONSULTING we believe that change, development and empowerment can be reached through a balanced process mixing awareness, challenge & coaching.

  • (Self) Awareness is a requisite to thrive in business, so we support companies (and people) analyze in depth their self-awareness, leveraging on highly-qualified capabilities in using various assessment tools and processes
  • Challenge is essential to shake assumptions and explore flexibility in order to change beliefs and develop new competences, leaving behind what isn’t useful anymore
  • Coaching is crucial to offer support, self-reflection and insights in order to think systemically and reorganize and integrate new set of beliefs and competences
