Welcome, I’m so glad you stopped by!
I’m Cédric, creator of My Working Way, and my goal is to help you make sense of work.
Why work specifically?
Because, on average, we spend over 30% of our life working. And I, for one, refuse to see this time as just a “means to an end”.
I’m here to help you realise that you are in charge
Galileo said “you cannot teach a person something they do not already know; you can only bring what they know to their awareness”.
And that’s what My Working Way is all about…
A purposeful working life is within your grasp. Not in a year, not in a month, not tomorrow. Now.
I’ve been in your shoes. I know how daunting, difficult, stressful and depressing work can be.
As an ambitious professional, I used to think that it didn’t matter. My goal was to climb the ladder. Only when I reached a “certain level” would I really enjoy work.
But something didn’t feel right.
I spent most of my days overachieving at work, my evenings recovering, and my weekends too exhausted to actually enjoy time with my family and friends.
Eventually, I decided it was time to stop worrying constantly about the future and to learn to enjoy the present.
I opened my mind to a different world, a world of mindfulness, meaningful relationships and infectious positivity. Where I didn’t need to be a perfectionist, but where I could just be “good enough”.
My life completely changed. And so did my relationship with work.
Don’t get me wrong, I am still ambitious and eager to achieve my goals. But I am also grounded in the present, able to enjoy every minute of every day, just because I decided to.
I created My Working Way because I want to help more people find purpose and fulfilment in the workplace.
It is my mission.
And guess what? You already have the right tools to get there, you just need to learn how to use them…

Who I am
When I don’t work on My Working Way, I act as a senior manager for an international firm based in Bristol. I’m also a husband and dad of two young children.
I am French but have left the motherland in 2009 to live internationally, mainly in the UK but also in Australia for a while.
Travelling is one my biggest passions. To me, there is nothing like discovering a new culture, learning from others and having your whole world turned upside down by new perspectives.
In my free time, I help a local youth organisation, Youth Moves, using my Finance and business skills as Treasurer.
About the future
I have plenty to share with you, but I also have plenty to learn.
I have big goals in my life and my career, and I will share my learnings through My Working Way along the way.
But I’m not the only one. The power of learning is compounded through community, and I expect My Working Way to become that community one day.
As I’m launching My Working Way in January 2021, I already have a few ideas of how it could develop into something more.
