This website focuses on self-awareness and wise choices.
Self-awareness has huge positive impact in people’s lives because it allows us to think in terms of possibilities and to choose… with ease even in difficult circumstances. I feel I am privileged to be part of my clients’ life at such profound level, accompanying them in the quest for a higher level of self-awareness and wisdom with simplicity, authenticity and joy.
Coaching is a safe space in which people bring their outside world fully trusting the new perspectives a coach offers without judgement. It is a micro-laboratory for real life. In my work as coach, I help people make wise choices.
I have lived with change all my life and I remember how difficult it was at times, although I welcome the fullness of my life experiences. I am passionate about the nature of things, about people and their stories.
I offer my clients tacit knowledge gathered in more than 25 years of learning experiences as physics teacher, news journalist, human resources manager, mentor and coach.
You may find more information about who I am and about what I do in the following pages. I am looking forward to hearing from you and to helping you reach your goals as best I can.
Our sessions are apparently easy-going and pleasant conversations that in the end leave me thinking, opening up new perspectives and new assumptions.
"Working with Daniela was really effective, professional and personal wise.I deeply appreciated her brilliant emotional intelligence, her honest and transparent communication style and her availability for an open personal relationship, on top of her ability to offer tailored-made support, effectively selected among a wide range of tools earned in her impressive experience.These qualities of Daniela built a trusting environment between us, where, with her support, I quickly realised the personal benefit of pursuing an important change in my life, reaching awareness of the need to look for a new important challenge, and the self-confidence of being ready for it."
"I feel very grateful for the Team Effectiveness & Leadership coaching provided by Daniela. She’s very knowledgeable and caring. Not only did she offer practical approaches to improve our team effectiveness, she provided tips for maintaining the right mind-set.I was very pleased with Daniela´s professionalism, commitment and enthusiasm. She was creative and visionary in her ideas, but also had impeccable follow-up and took care of all the details. Finally, her affable personality was a cherry on the cake.I would work with her anytime for all the knowledge, kindness, expertise and hands-on care she offers."
"Thank you. It was a pleasure knowing you and working with you on our team and personal development. It was a chance to look at us differently and to challenge our habits and our beliefs. I have especially appreciated how professionally you have invited me to ask questions and look for answers for which I didn't think I was ready. Due to our work I have a more optimistic view for the future and for this I am truly grateful."
"It has been a while and I would like to say these two things: I feel like a winner because being self-aware is now a habit; Thank you for helping me grow; I feel stronger and better."
“Daniela was for me like a mirror in which I saw myself smarter, more determined and more successful. And she let me look in this mirror for so long that I felt I really became smarter, more determined and more successful. Coaching is about asking great questions. And Daniela is the queen of great questions. She has empathy, a rich life experience that gives her understanding of the most subtle aspects, and she has curiosity. Genuine curiosity. The type of curiosity that makes you inquire the deepest levels of your existence. I would recommend anyone to take a journey into themselves and their true potential with Daniela as their guide.”
“Daniela helped me become more self-aware, but mostly she helped me discover new inner resources that support my personal journey towards transformation! I’ve learnt to live “here” and “now” and I’ve acquired new ways of relating with other people – simpler, more natural and efficient. I am naturally creative, resourceful and whole.”
“Initiating your coaching practice is the right step for you to take. It’s your mission. I expect people to value working with you already after the first session.”
“From the moment I met you, I knew that I will finally “ meet me” as well. And it happened. Looking back, I can easily say that having you as a coach is one of the most wonderful experience that I have lived. At professional level, thanks to you and the coaching program, I’ve stepped into another dimension, I’m having more than two eyes, and my impact is growing.”
“Daniela helped me to leverage on my skills and to abandon prejudices I had about myself and my limits. To tact and sensitivity Daniela added sincerity and, when necessary, firmness, for an objective reading of the reality. At the end of coaching, I had the basics in order to continue the development work and this gave me satisfaction.”
“Hi, Daniela! I found this quote in an article I was reading this morning: Coaching is about exploring possibilities together with a fellow human being. The thrill occurs when new potential is discovered and begins to develop. I remembered how much you helped me through coaching and wanted to share…Thank you!”
“I have changed a ship out there fighting all the time to travel the rough and uncharted seas for one that slides through calm waters. I am now the owner of a ship that arrives unhindered to her port of destination. Its crew steps blissfully on new shores. Thank you for having helped me to build my ship”
“Coaching with you has been one of the richest personal and professional experiences. At a personal level I have become more self-aware. Professionally, through coaching I have been able to communicate better to all stakeholders and to increase my impact both in terms of results and as a leader.”
“I like the emotional intelligence and intuition that allow you to “read” my feelings even over the phone, the way you reframe things so that I can learn from my own words, your patient guiding me back to essentials when I drift away. I trust our relationship.”
“During the coaching trip, I had the chance to crack one mystery: it is not about raising your potential but it’s about comprehending and reaching your potential. Coaching revealed the unexploited resources I possess and invited me to decide on the ways of investing them. It was intense, powerful and rich; it’s outcome is there to stay.”
At first, when I began my coaching program I was rather skeptical to what it was going to happen to me. My fear was that I was going to be exposed to a typical, standard method that was going to have so little to do with me. As if you are in a store and someone shows you a dress you normally wouldn’t even look at, asking you to try it on. You hesitate, but still you take it in the dressing room.And there, you have the biggest surprise: it seems that not only the new dress fits you perfectly but it also reveals to you things you missed by now, things you forgot to look at, things that you like. And only then, after you see this, you take the curtain down and show yourself to the others saying: “Hey, that’s me!”. And it’s a lot when you think that it is only the beginning…
