Mylène Thiébaud  is a Generation-coach, CEO and co-owner of TRANSFORMy GmbH.

She advises entrepreneurs on the planning and implementation of their succession plan. She provides mediation between the generations and accompanies the handover/takeover of the company holistically.

She is called in as a sparring partner by top executives and SME Owners for important decisions. And supports women to take the step into entrepreneurship.

The 44-year-old entrepreneur studied food science at the ETH Zurich and continued her education as a federal marketing leader and coach for strategic interventions. 

She earned her first professional spurs in the innovation sector as an engineer of process solutions in the food industry. In the strategic corporate development of Migros Aare, she did pioneering work with the “Migros Daily” project. She learned that not only the right strategy contributes to the success of a company, at the latest as an advisor to the CEO in the area of future viability. The implication of the employees as well as the leadership competences are decisive when it comes to initialising changes.

How to de-dramatize failure and turn it into success?

Without revealing too much, Mylène resumes: “It was the 21st of September 2017. One day before I turned 40. It’s 9.00 in the morning and I just got fired. My brain is exploding and emotions overwhelm me. I am furious, I am disappointed, I am sad, I am full of fears and I am extremely lonely. In this talk I will share with you the 3 thoughts and life lessons that helped me de-dramatize the situation in my car this morning. And I will show you why coping better with failure is one of the most important skills to have as a leader today.”
