• My craft

    Transition coach & cross cultural expert

    Certified Professional Co-Active® Coach (CPCC) from the Coaches Training Institute

    and Professional Certified Coach (PCC) from the International Coach Federation (ICF)

     

    I focus on Transition

    I support my clients to embrace change and use it as a propeller to fulfill their ambitions for themselves and for those around them.

    Together, we tackle closure with the past, ambiguity in the present, discomfort, blocks and limitations so as to free up the pathways, with speed and confidence, to engage the transition towards the desired future while enjoying the ride!

     

    Desirables

    Personal development, inner alignment, leadership, entrepreneurship, social impact, resilience, cultural diversity, change, action, active learning and mindfulness.

     

    My Story

    I lived in 6 countries (Italy, UK, NL, Singapore, Thailand and Philippines) and connected with many others.

    The wisdom I receive from people all over the world is a constant reminder of the human richness.

    I value diversity, its beauty and its relevance for a healthy development of humanity.

    With a strong background in leadership, I'm always in the quest for what makes each person strive and accomplish her dreams.

    I believe in the ripple effect: once we open our heart, the same is possible for anyone around us.

    The combination of logical efficacy and empathic connection makes me a powerful partner to find your own expression of happiness, balance and fulfilment. 

    Mother of 3 young adults and passionate about challenge, resilience, sport, nutrition and well being, I stretch the boundaries of leading from the head, heart and gut, activating all our energies and staying connected with our inner wisdom.

     

    "Each person is a new territory. I yearn to explore it.

    Beyond the known

    Beyond the assumptions

    Beyond the layers of the should be, should do,

    To reveal the inner beauty very few have access to"

  • Coaching & more

    ...in a nutshell!

    Coaching

    My job is to awake your inner warrior. When I hear your true voice, your eagerness to show up big in life, your commitment to yourself and those who can benefit from your actions, I know my job is done!

    Facilitation

    When facilitating, I connect the dots and get curious on the relationships as well as the people drives. There is no better day than when a group of committed people get together with curiosity and openness. My role is to keep the magic alive and let the group achieve their goals.

    Mentoring

    There is nothing as fulfilling as being with someone who is eager to develop, learn and challenge herself.

    I'm grateful for the privilege to mentor young female leaders in South East Asia as well as new coaches in the certification process.

  • A little more about coaching

    WHAT IS CO ACTIVE COACHING?

    Explore the co-active model: http://www.thecoaches.com/why-cti/what-is-co-active

    It all starts from you and what really matters for you

    My role as a coach is to trigger your inner warrior into action and impact the world around you according to your own values and beliefs.

     

    HOW DOES IT WORK?

    We start from "sniffing" each other...Is there chemistry between us? Can we work together? Is there something to invite our bold self to show up fully?

    If yes is the answer to the above questions, then we start our journey together.

    First and foremost by creating solid foundations: we want a safe space between each other, free from any obstacle, doubt, worry. Anything is welcome to show up to create a solid alliance.

    I'll be asking LOADS of questions. That's my only way to know you as you are right now, not yesterday and not even tomorrow.

    I want to know what triggers your allergy reactions, what makes you close down or pull away, what gets you disconnected.

    And I want to know what is important for you, what you value, what makes you feel alive, connected, powerful.

    We'll work with your whole person (mind, body, heart and soul) to shine the light on your "self".

    We'll create structures to bring you back instantly to the wise core in the difficult moments.

    Action we'll always be our focus: nothing happens until we do something!

    And when we work together...something happens!

     

    HOW OFTEN DO WE MEET?

    As often as needed.

    There is no one size fits all.

    We'll find the right way together and we'll commit 100% to make every minute count.

    Maybe a cycle of 6 session is enough to establish different behaviours or it can happen sooner or more time might be needed to dig a little deeper and allow the change to sit under the skin.

    The only rule is: it's your decision.

    My objective is to witness your achievements and fulfilment.

  • Vittoria has been an impactful and pleasant coach for me: an excellent listener with the ability to go and think from abstract back down to earth and vice versa. The professional talks and conversations I had with her helped me a lot: spot on feedback, eye-openers, good ideas, new ways of looking at myself, succession, my organization and my approach: do what your are good and like. In addition she has been a good support in my Krauthammer University and Business development projects: business argumentation curriculum, open space decision making/ turbulence, facilitation faculty, conceptualization of ideas. Last but not least: a global citizen, a pleasant person, someone who can anchor and stay close with others even when moving over the globe.

    — Jos Velthuis

    Krauthammer senior partner

     

    Vittoria engages from the start and her warm personality gets the best out of you. She digs deep and challenges appropriately and pushes where you need to be pushed. She is creative and makes the sessions meaningful, fun, and above all, rewarding.

     

    — Kay Twine

    Managing Director / Business Unit Leader

     

    Vittoria is simply an amazing coach and an amazing person. She is creative, empathetic, inspirational and energetic. Our sessions were always something to look forward to. Vittoria has a unique talent for creating a space where reflections and insights emerge naturally and yet so powerfully. It's almost magical. Her skillful guidance was never prescriptive nor directive, yet suddenly I would find myself in a place so rich with creative energy and possibilities, and feeling so deeply connected and centered... I always felt full ownership of what emerged in the coaching process, and yet I know that it would not have happened without Vittoria, her presence, her engagement and her art. Coaching with Vittoria has been a most transformative experience.

    Do you believe in a “perfect organisation”? Well, we don’t. But we do believe that a highly effective organisation is the source of competitive advantage. Our work is based on the principle that organisations are dynamic systems and people their most important element. We focus on your people and their behaviour. And today people’s individual performance has never been more crucial for corporate growth. Without people’s passion, power and perseverance companies lose their main drivers.

    ICF International Coach Federation

    PCC Professional Certified Coach 2014-2015

    Professional Coach Thomas Leonard started ICF in 1995 as a nonprofit organization for fellow coaches to support each other and grow the profession. Three years later, buoyed by 70 dedicated volunteers and growing interest, ICF began its quest to raise the profile of professional coaching.

    ICF created Core Competencies and built a Code of Ethics, setting the standard in the coaching field. An Ethical Conduct Review Process and Independent Review Board (IRB) were established, allowing consumers to file breach-of-ethics complaints.

    ICF also defined curriculum standards (accreditation), to ensure consistency in coach training, and developed an ICF Credentialing system, requiring renewal every three years.

    Currently, membership is growing around the world by an average of 500+ members a month and exceeds 20,000. ICF continues to focus on professional standards while positioning the organization more strategically. ICF’s goal is to keep growing membership and maintain a solid direction, presence and professional voice for coaches.

    Based out of Lexington, Kentucky, ICF also operates Regional Service Centres in Asia-Pacific, Europe, Latin America and North America, leading the global advancement of the coaching profession.
