"We have put a lot of dust under the carpet since we founded the company, we have grown an invisible wall of distrust that prevents constructive conversations.”

What about Tools & Data points?

With over a decade of experience at Google, I have come to understand that tools and data are essential for driving change. I am pleased to partner with The Rising Team to lead workshops, and also utilize science-based surveys such as the Psychological Safety Scan by Amy Edmonson - for which I am a certified practitioner.


Still, I have found that in companies where fear is prevalent, surveys may not always be entirely reliable. I believe that the most effective way to uncover the underlying issues within an organization is through direct engagement with team members, both in group settings and individual conversations.

LAURENCE KOZERA - Founder & Partner

With 15+ years of experience in business, culture, and sports, including roles at Google and the Beijing 2008 Olympics, I excel in building trust and collaboration among diverse stakeholders, particularly founders and senior executives.

As a French native, my passion for facilitating understanding led me to pursue studies in Translation and Interpretation, Language and Civilization, and earn a Master's degree in Intercultural Management. With work experience in China, Germany, Ireland, the UK, and Switzerland, I have honed my ability to navigate diverse public and private environments, ranging from the Beijing Olympics Organizing Committee to Google Global Product Partnerships.

I am driven by a passion for helping people comprehend each other's messages and intentions. Witnessing talent and ideas go to waste due to a lack of supportive organizational structures frustrates me. My core values include authenticity, sincerity, and impact.

If your organization is not currently aligned with these values, I am available for a conversation and to provide assistance.
