Do you sometimes wonder if it’s possible to be successful in business, while staying happy, sane and in integrity? Do you feel “pretty good” about how you handle challenges, but every time they come up, you still silently deal with anxiety and stress? Would you like to learn effective ways to manage your internal psychology, so that you can lead & live from a place of confidence, clarity and grounded-ness? If this sounds like you, I can help.

Who I work with:

I coach audacious founders, executives and thought leaders in innovative industries - at companies like GE, IBM and some of the fastest growing startups in the US and Europe. My clients tend to be high-achieving, technical-minded folks looking to also succeed at navigating human relationships at work and in their personal lives. They want to go from being a “boss” to a leader that people want to follow. They’ve had unusual journeys and lives, with a history of trusting their gut and doing what others thought couldn’t be done. They’re travelers and risk-takers, irreverent, and most of them know they’re here for a purpose bigger than themselves. They’re not afraid to be honest about what’s not working in their lives, and they’re ready to do the work it takes to go from good to great.

How we work together:

We start with a Discovery Session at no cost, to see how I can help you and to determine whether we’re a good match. Then, based on your goals, we’ll decide to partner for a certain duration of time. We’ll have weekly or biweekly sessions over the phone or in person and you’ll have Jedi Mind-Work between those sessions (aka homework to get you building your new muscles). In our work together, we’ll challenge your assumptions, rewire your brain to think and feel differently so that you can take new, effective actions, and you’ll learn new tools for how to deal with challenges, so that you can do those processes by yourself for the rest of your life. It’s very likely that we’ll uncover something big that keeps getting in your way... and which no one has told you. We’ll confront it. Because that’s what it takes to live an extraordinary life and be an inspiring leader.

In our work together, you will:

I offer a Discovery Session at no cost for you to discover how I can support you as your Executive Coach.

With Sylvana’s coaching, I learned a lot about myself, which helped me grow as a leader and as a human being. I learned about what drives me, about my “zone of genius” and Sylvana provided simple tools and methods to let go of unhelpful habits and implement new ones that would best serve my goals. One of the most important outcomes was I learned how to have a bigger impact while being less busy. As a coach, Sylvana is incredibly good at asking the right questions, listening, then asking more questions to help uncover what’s really going on, but then she also has something to say. She has clear ideas and input. From our second meeting, she already had revealed key points where she saw I could evolve as a leader. Sylvana manages to create an environment that is equally trusting and open, but also demanding. She raises the bar. You quickly get to a place where you openly discuss the most relevant points. She wants you to achieve results and is committed to your success, and (very important) she also makes this work fun. It was a perfect mix that led to some powerful shifts in my life.
