“What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.” Abraham Maslow
My interest in conscious leadership began at a very early stage in my career. My professional journey towards this goal has focused on helping individuals, groups and communities overcome the status quo and lead themselves and others to unleash their potential through raising their conscious awareness. I am a multilingual conscious leadership coach. In addition to my private coaching practice, I am a Fellow Coach with BetterUp Coaching.
I believe that we could all do better than the status quo, particularly when it falls short of our expectations as individuals and as members of society. The status quo is any state where we might feel unable to reach our fullest potential due to inner or outer barriers. By overcoming it, we can all become influential, inspirational and motivational leaders. In my work in fundraising in the Silicon Valley for various nonprofits or in advocacy and international development in Washington D.C., I have assisted citizens around the world to overcome the status quo. In my work as a professional coach though my private business, I have helped individuals work through releasing inner blocks and shifting into levels of consciousness that allow them to overcome their personal status quo. Whether it is communities, societies or individuals, my goal is to support individuals aspiring to become conscious leaders align with their best self, a key ingredient to success, happiness and fulfillment.
I love the realms of neuroscience and emotional intelligence, and how they affect our human consciousness. My clients have found it extremely valuable to use tools and methods rooted in neuroscience and emotional intelligence that enable them to live their lives from higher levels of consciousness.
