“As a coach, my goal is to help leaders navigate the present and the future with intention and a stronger sense of direction. I believe that the leader’s journey starts from within and that investing in self-development and in acquiring key soft skills and a growth mindset is the only way to move forward.

I have a passion for helping individuals advance and my interest in global leadership stems from my professional experience and life path. I was born in Italy and so far I have lived and worked in nine different countries.I have grown professionally in large organizations, leading multi-functional teams and global projects.

Was it an easy path? No, it wasn’t. Yet, I believe it was worth the walk.

Life abroad has offered me the opportunity to learn so much about myself and become more curious about others. Expatriation has exposed me to so many different cultures and within that to a variety of leadership styles, behaviors, and value systems. Without these experiences, I would not be who I am and I would not be doing what I do. So, yes! It was worth it.

This nomadic life fed my desire to better understand human behavior at work and to become a leadership coach. It led me to further my education through an MSc in Organizational Psychology and several coaching certifications.So far, I have coached hundreds of people from all over the world and from a wide range of sectors, functions and organizations.I have learned so much from them.

Nowadays, I keep exploring questions like:How can I best facilitate the shift from a fixed to a growth mindset? How can adults develop their emotional intelligence? What are the key drivers of motivation during change and challenges? In a diverse setting, what’s the right balance between trying to blend in and leveraging differences?I keep looking for possible answers through my coaching practice and continuous learning.

I believe in a just and democratic society and I volunteer my time to support less-privileged young adults with their professional development. It is my way of reciprocating and contributing to a better world.”

“Every day, I am grateful for what I have and for what I do.”
