Our mission is to make the organization a better place to work for.

We serve individuals and organizations in the fields of talent identification, development, sustainability and retention with particular emphasis on the high potentials.


The Talent Spirit (formerly The Training Spirit) was founded in Geneva in 1993 by Kate Lindley and Jean-Luc Scheidegger and has gained a prominent place in the Swiss corporate training market. Our name reflects our philosophy of being at the forefront of evolution of people issues in corporate life. We thus model the sort of change management we provide. We like to think of ourselves as talent developers and include ourselves in that ambition. The Talent Spirit team is committed to maintaining our high reputation by continuing to deliver a complete range of services that make The Talent Spirit a "one-stop-shop" for human resources solutions.

We come from different countries and cultures and have complementary areas of expertise in which we have certification and experience. We see differences as an opportunity for learning and growing. We are enthusiastic about our job and passionate about quality and continuous improvement. Team members operate an inter-group monitoring system which gives regular feedback as to how standards are being met. This allows us to offer our clients a “success guarantee” whereby a client who is not 100% satisfied is entitled to complimentary extra sessions.

This is the “spirit” in which we do our job. Call it team spirit, call it passion, call it “walking the talk” All these expressions add up to making the experience of working with The Talent Spirit unique, efficient, effective and, we hope, enjoyable.
