After science studies, Gérard Fransès began his career as a mathematics teacher, while pursuing his musical studies at ENSM Paris (piano class). In 1980 he joined a furniture company, where he rose to become sales manager.
During a trip to Berlin (1983), he visited East Germany and what he saw there convinced him to commit to defending human rights in the USSR, with an association of which he became secretary general. In the process, he met many intellectuals and political leaders of the time to obtain the release of dissidents and political prisoners, by accompanying them in situ or by encouraging them to take action in France.
In the early 1990s he specialized in human relations, notably in the behavioural branch. He has a Master’s degree in NLP. He continued learning with Robert Dilts, Carol Erickson, F. Trompenaars and Marshall T. Rosenberg, while at the same time attending seminars just about everywhere in the world (Europe, Canada, USA, etc.). He is also trained in TA, Process Com, MBTI and is certified DISC-AEC©.
At the same time, he joined Krauthammer as a consultant before rapidly becoming R&D manager in charge of developing content. He runs leadership courses where he coaches senior executives, managers and management committees from all walks of life, from the local SME to large multinationals (Volvo, Sanofi Pasteur, Siemens, Vinci, Casino, etc.). He also consults in the medical world, with doctors and nursing staff, in order to help their patients become more autonomous. Gérard Fransès has consulted for APM and Circles of Progress (France, Morocco).
Convinced of the major role that relational intelligence can play, both in terms of personal development and an organizations’ development, he started up his own business with a number of former colleagues in 2013, for the purpose of devoting all of his time to this topic.
