In the second part of my life, I am now beginning to realize there is only one life – ONLY ONE. I'm looking inside myself more often, and I'm less obsessed with activities that bring pleasure. As a result, I'm also changing my habits.
My current project is to be more aware of single moments as my life unfolds.
I love investigating what has been written by wiser than me and how to apply that wisdom to my life and the people around me.
To be of assistance to other people I moved into coaching.
I'm an MBA graduate with 20 years of sales experience. I had my fair amount of successes and failures, quarters when I delivered my targets, and times when I struggled with the kind of offerings I had in my sales basket.
Working in sales was fun until there came a moment when I realized it's time to do something different. Since I already had a vast reservoir of knowledge in Psychology of Motivation from my University, I decided to use it better to benefit more people.
To complete that mission, I needed to complete a few learning programs:
Coaching Course with accreditation from European Mentoring and Coaching Council,
A yearly course in Psychological Assistance,
An eight weeks course in Motivational Interviewing,
A Habit Coach certification on Coach.me,
1,5-year postgraduate studies in Mindfulness and Compassion,
Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy course accredited with Oxford Mindfulness Center.
When I read how mindfulness helped Google employees to boost productivity and increase well-being, I was impressed and inspired.
On the operational level, these benefits include better attention management with everyday tasks, a more relaxed response mechanism in challenging situations, and greater creativity.
Various elements of the "Performance Equation" need to be evaluated on the strategic level, and possible ways to enable intrinsic motivation need to be discussed.
Apart from the "what" we are trying to achieve, we also need to ensure that we have an adequate level of autonomy, positive relations, and the room to build our competencies as explained by the Self Determination Theory.
I have recently integrated all the relevant pieces from various frameworks and built a comprehensive, detailed plan to work on Positive Productivity.
When you enter the phrase "well-being" on LinkedIn, the search engine throws away dozens of companies in Western Europe where such a position exists. But not every organization acknowledges the need to build competency in this area.
I am aware that the material I have prepared responds to the needs that are just beginning to crystallize. On the other hand, however, these are universal and always present topics, albeit covertly, as I had the opportunity to experience working in corporations for the last 20 years.
I run my workshops and coaching sessions on zoom or in a chat-based model on Coach.me. It is also possible to work in a hybrid model - have a regular chat on Coach.me and use zoom to discuss the progress in more depth.
