An agile mindset is fundamental to personal and organizational success and well-being in a VUCA world. How we think, talk and write about our expectations and needs determines the resillience of our relationships, how we feel about ourselves and our challenges, and how sustainable we are as leaders. And this, at the end of the day determines our results, recognition, and reputation and that of our organization. Details

introvision COACHING

Introvision coaching effortlessly stops situations, tasks, and/or relationships from triggering counter-productive thoughts, anxieties, fears, and avoidance strategies. As a result, you experience a renewed freedom to feel, act, and change the way you want to – without stress. Details.


Presence is the bearing or air of a person. Strong presence is a noteworthy quality of poise and effectiveness. This presence is fundamental to leadership in general and to how leaders present their ideas and themselves in particular. I have supported hundreds of professionals in their personal presence, career interviews and business cases, key account presentations, and M&A and venture capital presentations. Details.
