dandelion 4-01Training 1: Collaborative Leadership in support of the evolution of your organisation

… from diagnosis to strategy implementation
Respect for the identity of the individual is fundamental for his or her creativity, motivation, cooperation and equilibrium. With this as the guiding principles of your decisions and actions, it is possible to work miracles, to overcome resistance to change, to make possible the impossible, and bring to fruition any project of creation, however utopian. The “Win-Win Partnership” is the methodology developed by the YMI Network for implementing this approach.

Needs to be satisfied by your organisation:


  • Preventing resistance to change and determining the most efficient approach to manage any evolution
  • Making reliable diagnoses, then maximising the creativity of an organisation for effective solution finding and implemention
  • Optimising collective creativity and fostering the “intrapreneurship” spirit to innovate and generate new opportunities
  • Stimulate responsibility and enthusiasm
  • Capitalising on change management and strategy revision to federate stakeholders under the company project banner and boost competiveness

Accommodation and hospitality at Rix Mill



Rix Mill: serenity, tranquillity, the ideal place to unwind, think, create…

Located in the heart of Burgundy, within  a triangle between the vineyards of Chablis, Sancerre and Beaune, Rix Mill is in the village of Rix which has 200 inhabitants, and is just 2 miles from the medieval town of Clamecy (population: 4,500), and two hours drive south of Paris.


Situated on 5.5 hectares of land and water, Rix Mill was built in 1743, pre-dating the French Revolution and combines the beautiful architecture of the era with a fully refurbished, high specification interior and the latest in high-speed internet communications.


It offers the essential serenity and comfort to allow for concentration and reflection, making it the ideal place to forget the pressures of daily life and step back to think about the future.


Yves and Christine’s conviviality, hospitality and international experience ensure personalised accompaniment to suit your specific needs.


  • Accommodation: In addition to a spacious one-bedroom cottage with mezzanine, two additional bedrooms are available if you would like to bring  a small team of collaborators on site. There is also the possibility to book additional bedrooms in the nearby town of Clamecy.
    Meal options: Meals shared with Yves and Christine Mercier provide an opportunity for sharing experiences and open discussion.
  • Collection/return service available from the airports and railway stations. If you have your own private plane or helicopter, a 900-yard runway is located less than 1 mile from Rix Mill with a private hangar.
