Sylvain Mahe

I am an Agile / Lean coach with 5+ yrs of experience working in medium to large Agile transformations where I'm engaged at the team, management and executive (CxOs) levels.

I am an energetic and creative change agent who believes Agile is above all an attitude based on trust, discipline and a flexible mindset. Add shared vision and technical excellence for the transformation to succeed!

I'm also a life coach, with a focus on relationships and transformation. I help clients explore their true nature and find their way towards a more fulfilling life. If you want a fresh new perspective on things, with a good sense of humor, contact me!
