🌍 Learn With Me

Each journey begins with self-control, self-direction or self-determination. In short, SELF-Leadership.

According to Bryant and Kazan (2012), self-leadership involves a deep understanding of your own identity, strengths and aspirations, and the ability to influence your own communication, emotions and behaviour towards achieving a goal.

I create effective learning programs to help you develop SELF-Leadership skills in harmony with all areas of your life (personal, professional, social, family) and relevant to each of the 3 phases of your transformation:

SELF-Awareness => SELF-Autonomy => SELF-Change

#EgoismulPozitiv®/ Positively SELFish

Lateral workshops to develop mindset, skill and behaviours in 4 key-areas for SELF-Leadership:

relationships | conflict | time | creativity

#SchimbăFoaia®/ Turn The Page

Professional coaching program for SELF-Leadership in all areas of life.

individual | silent | group sessions

Some of the topics we address during our learning sessions: building resilience, avoiding burnout/mental exhaustion, decision-making in uncertainty, vulnerability, conflict, relationships, self-talk, empathy, public speaking, managing feelings, team communication and feedback, change making, time and energy control, challenging belief systems, addressing professional vanity, overcoming cultural resistance and many more.

Our original learning programs for SELF-Leadership are available in Romanian and English languages, for 1:1 or group sessions, either in-person or online, via digital platforms.

  • We connect in momentum. Sessions are designed to support your learning objectives, also keeping an agile eye on your needs on the spot. Seizing this moment is when the learning happens! So, fully committed presence and high level of attention from your host and facilitator!
  • We are open to challenge. We may metaphorically throw the course agenda out the window. Or jump outside for embodied exercises together. Or go in Zoom breakout rooms to build on insights. We surrender the moment to support your learning to the best of my ability!
  • We are aware we grow together. Group sessions are so insightful! This feeling of belonging to a community of equally inquisitive peer-learners makes the learning so much fun! Sharing with others gets us energised, inspired and motivated to challenge ourselves, ask new questions, experiment and integrate different perspectives!
  • We approach each other with kindness, holding space to speak, listen and be heard. Everyone has their own story to tell. Listening, we can learn about ourselves. Sharing with grace may inspire others to voice their ideas too!
  • We enjoy creative learning tools. I see creativity as a natural self-help tool to navigate through any challenge! Using creative thinking props makes the sessions insightful, engaging and fun! Experimenting is how you learn how to apply them forward, in any context of life. You may like: theatre improvisation & role play, doodling & calligraphy, embodiment & nonverbal communication, storytelling anchors & guiding metaphors, neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) techniques, free writing & poetry frameworks and countless other creative thinking props!

RELATIONSHIPS – interpersonal or with self, and also with money, work, health, failure, safety, risk, freedom etc.

e.g. Self-Awareness: The Mirroring Effect, How to Say NO in Relationships, How to Connect With Parents (for teens), I Am OK, My Kid Is OK (for parents), Words Create Worlds (for people who parent for families, children and businesses)

CONFLICT – inner stress, in relationships, between divergent beliefs and values, in decision making; toxicity, hesitations, blockages in communication

e.g. Conflict Resolution, Sum of All Fears (on vulnerability & failure)

TIME – inner perception of time, procrastination, planning and control over objective time

e.g. Self-Management in a Timely Manner (for managers and professionals), Take Your Time (deep personal work on the subjective perception of time)

CREATIVITY – inner creative process, reframing creativity, “there is no box” thinking tools

e.g. Creative Cats Have to Work Like Dogs, Creativity on Toast/ “Creativitate pe pâine”

“Creativitate pe pâine”/ Creativity on Toast is a series of mind shifting online sessions where we use creativity as a natural self-help tool to manage change in our leadership roles during challenging times – social, professional, in family, with self.

The program was initially designed for teachers during the pandemic to help them manage transition from in-person to digital teaching with more ease, awareness and joy! Soon, Rubik School and Teach for Romania Alumni included “Creativitate pe pâine” in their online learning programs for teachers, such as S.E.L.F. Camp and “Mă educ pentru viitor”/ I educate myself for the future.

“Creativitate pe pâine”/ Creativity on Toast is available to all of you interested in training SELF-Leadership skills through the nurturing lens of creativity.
