About me

My passion is helping you understand yourself and the world you operate in, so you could navigate it better and make it better for you and others around you!

Since I started my coaching journey, I have had the opportunity to have helped successfully hundreds of clients on areas of Career Change and Development, as well as Personal Leadership, and hope to keep helping more clients to make sense of how can they achieve success in this ever changing world at work and in general.

Can I help you too?

My clients are generally achieving what we set out to, as I support them in their journey, and allow time and space for exploration, as well as challenge them and hold them accountable to their vision, their commitment made to their own growth, and their passion to the why which helped them engage in the process in the first place.

I am a sparring partner who has a lot of experience, enjoys seeing the shaping of the future you, and who will support you stay focussed and engaged with the process.

Topics we might work together on:

  • Career Transition/ Or any transition in current work, where change has bestowed upon you - as Herminia Ibarra says: When you are at the "What got you here, won't get you there" moment
  • Career Coaching in general- when not sure what next, or maybe yyou wnat a promotion, move roles or companies, etc
  • Leadership behaviours change - I am a Marshall Goldsmith Stakeholder Centred Coach and this coaching method starts from the premise that to be able to be as succesful in the future, as you were until now, some habits need unlearning. Also looking at what those are and which ones are more unhelpful for your next leg of your leadership journey, as :"What got you here, won't get you there".
  • Work challenges (especially if you had some improvement areas highlighted on your development plans / 360 feedback or simply want to improve relationships at work); such as:
  • Improving listening skills
  • General communication skills
  • Improve emotional intelligence
  • Dealig better with conflict
  • Challenging conversations
  • Improving productivity
  • Reduce stress
  • Confidence building
  • Presentation skills
  • New role success - first 3 months (for both line manager and individual contributor scenarios)
  • Team coaching.

Call me with no obligation and we discuss.

My client's words:

"Working with Mihaela had a very positive impact at this point in my career. We built a good relationship, and really felt that Mihaela was immediately on my agenda. Her questions are considered and insightful. She is non-judgmental, listens and she demonstrated throughout that she understood what I wanted to achieve. I found the whole experience very powerful.”
