My name is Hélène Schmit, I am an architect of the human. I am a professional fulfilment coach helping individuals and organisations to connect and embody their vision, and bring the best out of themselves, by developing their individual fulfilment to the service of collective performance.
I work with inspired and conscious leaders willing to create a fulfilling, impactful and balanced organisation, by empowering their employees.
I put my powerful network to the service of the needs of your company by creating taylor-made complete service offers that serve your vision and fit your company’s needs
Exploring Happy was born after years working in big companies embracing high responsibilities. During that journey I have observed and understood a lot of things regarding human empowerment (and dis-) and received many trainings as a manager. I have created Exploring Happy as an answer to the pain I have witnessed and been through during those experiences, and capitalised on the “fulfilment receipes”. This birth happened on the island of Bali, a mecca for remote work and location independent entrepreneurship.
In this unique setting, I have understood deeply how we can deeply broaden our perspectives and connect our true potential. This scene is the proof that another way of working and being is possible. it embodies in the present what we call “the future of work”.
