Romaine Johnstone

I love people. I thrive on growth and development. I am passionate about transformation and diversity, about our relationships with ourselves and others, and the potential of these relationships.
I am passionate about leadership and where that sits within each of us, at work and at home.
I’m driven by change, by its challenges and opportunities. And I’m fascinated by words and their impact and my greatest desire is to share all this with my clients with lightness and laughter whenever possible.
I was brought up roaming Europe and parts of Africa. As an adult, I lived and worked in Brussels and London before moving to France. I’m now happily based in Paris with my daughters and husband and I am resolutely European and fiercely multi-cultural at heart.

Professional expertise

I work as a systemic leadership and team coach, facilitator and trainer with both individuals and teams. Both virtually and face to face, in English and in French. Transformation, change and relationship management are at the heart of my work. From a place of passion, commitment and positivity, my aim is to help individuals and teams develop their inter-personal and professional skills whatever the context, to boost collective intelligence, performance and wellbeing.
I’m a Faculty Member and Front of Room Leader for CRR Global (ORSCä) and VP Develop at Paris’ first international professional network, the PWN. Member of the steering committee of the ORSC France community.
