What we do

Ambits reinforces managers in their leadership through Business Mentoring. To bring your people and business into balance.

Your people are struggling to implement a new strategy. Your implementation is out of control due to human bottlenecks. You attempt to solve it with training, coaching, and more consultancy. We’ve heard it time and time again.

Ambits offers a new service centered on pragmatically guiding your personal transition to an effective leader.

Our vision

Helping to achieve your ambitions

To reinforce managers in their leadership and people management

by business mentors with expertise and all the scars of learning

in order to create immediate and sustainable results and safeguard your investments.

A Business Mentor was my rescue to quickly adapt my leadership style to a new reality. At a time when major adjustments were needed both privately and professionally. Within a context of significant cultural differences and the first signs of the emerging financial crisis of 2008.
