Founder of Synthesis and Yishu 8 (Paris - Beijing)
Chevalier de la legion d’honneur
Manager of the Rodin Museum, Paris
With the French superior foundation degree in philosophy and literature (hypokhâgne and khâgnean) under her belt and a PhD in Philological Sciences from one of France’s leading institutions, Christine Cayol began teaching philosophy in her final year of secondary school.
In 1994 she created Synthesis, a consulting firm specialising in coaching directors and managers through an innovative method known as “The Detour”. Through art and culture, this approach seeks to make one more open, more sensitive and more humane by sharpening the senses and perceptions in order to develop emotional intelligence. When put into action, this generates creativity and efficiency.
