Jean de la Rochebrochard's Coaching Story
My weekly routine with Wave has become capital. It has brought me a more honest and complete perspective on myself as a person at work and in life. I feel more vulnerable yet stronger • Jean de la Rochebrochard • Managing Partner at Kima Ventures
Can you share key highlights of your coaching experience with Wave (overcame challenges, aha moments...)?
I think we all have a sense of our limitations and resistances, at least partially. Yet I feel like we usually fail at identifying and facing them because we don't ask ourselves the right questions. And even if we would, it's hard to be self-accountable without any kind of support.
To me, coaching is about trust first and foremost, like any relationship. And the fact that Wave is anonymous and unbiased quickly put me at ease in that regard.
The second thing that Wave offered me was a consistent discipline of self-reflection. Even if sometimes it feels like a constraint, I actually enjoy that it pushes me to check in every week to see where I stand. Accountability is the second factor that seems important to be truly committed to progress in our journey.
The third element is continuity and I think this is how Wave really comes into shape. Progress is always a lifelong process and unfortunately, we tend to quickly slip back into our old habits if we don't check-in on a regular basis. It's like having good eating and training habits.
What would you say that Wave brought you?

Who do you think should start being coached by Wave?
I believe you can be coached by Wave only if you experience satisfaction in growing as a person in your roles, and in your interactions. It's neither magical nor sudden, it requires a commitment to yourself and patience as it takes time to anchor change and progress. Yet, Wave is really something that I would encourage at every level, regardless of your age or your position.
