WHO IS BEHIND BOOSTALAB?
A fabulous team
Which means the ability to take people and projects from something beautiful to something superb by making the most of their best aspects. With Boostalab, maximization opportunities abound: clients coming to us with inspiring needs, wishes from our community members, and Solime’s genius ideas, of course!
Which means having the power to identify underlying concepts and to unite ideas which first appear unlinked. With Boostalab, there are so many ideas, both for guides and for the growth of the company. Combined with Mélanie’s maximization power, each great idea gets a boost and becomes excellent!
Which is the power to keep an eye towards the future to inspire today’s action, both for oneself and for others. In coaching situations, it allows me to help my clients understand the full potential of their situation, which has a transformative effect. Looking towards the future allows us to challenge the status quo and wander off the beaten path.
Which is the power to seek consensus within every situation by uniting the strengths of all things. With Boostalab, it allows me to combine my creativity with calculated goals and therefore participate in the deployment of this company which inspires me continually.
Which is the power to follow a clear sense of direction, identify priorities, and adjust as needed to stay on course. Amid turmoil, finding meaning to our actions is paramount. I’m passionate about helping people and teams define their destiny, light up their way, and inspire them with the energy they need to realize their aspirations.
Which is the power to draw upon the uniqueness of different individuals to create fruitful collaborations. As an organizational psychologist, I bring people with different interests and talents together to work on joint projects. By taking full advantage of the different strengths within the team, we increase the chances of combining wellbeing and performance.
Which is the power to see the untapped potential in others. I’m deeply convinced that humans strive for the best, and support individuals and organizations to find their sources of energy and vitality.
Which means the power to help others navigate through ambiguity and structure their reflection so that they can better define the essence of who they are, and where they are going. This is just as helpful to those who are seeking to better manage their career as for managers looking to get to know candidates better during a hiring process.
Which is the power to juggle with ideas—both mine and those of others—and to be curious in order to learn and to help others learn. I’m passionate about bringing ideas together, mixing them up and creating something new and meaningful with them. This is a constant process which allows us to go further in collaborating and experiencing thrilling projects!
Which is the power to put oneself in someone else’s shoes to better grasp how they are feeling. This allows me to frame all communications based on the other person, and to address them as whole individuals rather than as a simple number.
Which is the power to transform thoughts into action, in order to set things into motion. This allows me to implement winning strategies to help my clients progress more easily towards their goals, and to give them clarity when things get more complex. And all of this in a climate that promotes kindness and performance.
Which is the power to transform something strong into something great. It allows me to transform ordinary spaces into performance levers by positioning the office as a strategic tool where one’s potential contributes to the success of a mutual mission.

A little history…
The original idea arose over a shared meal at Déjeuner Cosmopolitain, known for its legendary half-mashed potatoes. Solime was looking for ways to simplify change management within organizations, and wanted to write a revolutionary book on the topic. Mélanie, recently returned from a family trip around the world, was inspired by the idea of social enterprise, and wanted to help managers better use their tools and their inspirations to develop their leadership. Those two ideas, different but complementary, created the first spark, which eventually grew during a workshop on organizational renewal held by George Pòr at HEC Montreal. Mélanie and Solime ended up missing part of the workshop as they agreed to embark on the Boostalab adventure for real—nothing closes a deal like shaking hands atop a cafeteria table.
Even though the founders were both working full-time as management consultants, they still launched a prototype, including a website and some guides. This convinced them that Boostalab was the answer to a real need.
