Are you an executive or an entrepreneur looking for a way to manage your stress and become more effective with people? My coaching approach will help you.
I'm an ICF Professional Certified Coach (PCC Level) and leadership trainer. I have 12+ years of experience working internationally with executives, entrepreneurs, companies and MBA participants, with about 1500 hours of coaching practice.
For 17 years I've been the executive education director of CIMBA, an American business and leadership school located in Italy. My passion for coaching led me to also be a lead trainer in a professional coach program and an ICF mentor coach.
My major areas of interventions are leadership development and building soft skills. What's really important for me? How can I get clarity on what I want? How can I get more fulfilment in my life? How can I give the best of myself to people around me so I can inspire them to do the same? How can I align my behaviours with what is required by my role and responsibilities? How can I build better relationships with others? How can I manage my fears and obstacles? These are the major questions that summarise how I helped people so far.
The major goals are usually: to develop self-awareness, to identify strengths&areas of improvements, to practice those behaviours and actions that will allow the creation of new habits.
As an ICF coach I'm not the expert of your life, I'm the expert in the process. This imply that I will not teach you new things, tell you what to do and/or how to do it. I will help you to find your own answers and to identify the possible actions you are committed to put in place to reach your goals. I will hold you accountable and I will challenge you to give the best of yourself, following your agenda and not mine. Our coaching sessions do not imply necessarily building an action plan. It will be your choice. It could also be an exploration of your way of thinking regarding certain aspects of your life where you need more clarity.
My coaching approach is brain based and focuses on the latest neuroscience discoveries on how we react under stress. As a Second City student, I love improv rules and use them in my sessions to help the coachee to manage uncertainty and ambiguity, important skills in a VUCA world.
