Ruscassier Philippe

Philippe’s career with a recognized international organization – Médecins Sans Frontières – has enabled him to acquire solid skills in the fields of Management, Human Resources and Learning & Development.

Today he practices as senior consultant and his best areas of expertise are Coaching, Mediation, Facilitation, Training and Audit in the field of organizational change management.

His university curriculum is made of two complementary European Master’s degrees. The first has been obtained at the Sorbonne University in Paris in the Department of Political Science, in the field of Strategic Project Management, and the second one at the University of Geneva, in Human Resources Management, whose thesis dealt specifically with the evolution of learning processes in organizations.

Philippe has then specialized with certifications in Corporate Coaching and Professional Mediation.

His career is made of four periods that feed on each other:

– He first worked as a Manager of humanitarian programmes in complex international environments for several years, in countries such as South Africa, Afghanistan, Tanzania, South Sudan, Liberia and some more…

– He then made a long-term and in-depth commitment to Human Resources where, after having held many managerial positions, he contributed to their development and professionalization. He headed the HR department of Médecins Sans Frontières Switzerland for 3 years and joined the Executive Committee. The organization then had 1500 employees spread all over the world.

– Then he became involved with determination, for 13 years, in the creation of “Learning and Development [L&D]”. His investment and vision in talent development makes it a major and strategic institutional focus for Médecins Sans Frontières. The L&D cluster is thus recognized for the quality of its innovative learning systems.

– Finally, he now devotes himself to individual and collective coaching and organizational transformation. He develops a holistic approach and innovative learning and transformation processes that enable reconnection to one self, to others and to the personal and professional environment. His practice, based on listening and caring, places people at the heart of his approach.
