How does knowing our values affect our behaviors?

When you talk to coaches, all would point that getting to know your values is a great way to start working on yourself. I personally, named my values when I started my coaching journey. My biggest surprise in naming them, was how effortless the decision process became. When in doubt the question that would guide […]

What are your strengths?

I remember that I was asked this question for the first time in my life during a job interview, when I was 20 years old. Honestly, I had no idea what to reply – growing up in Eastern Europe, I was told and reminded countless times of what my weaknesses were, but strengths? Was it […]

You want to lead? Then Grow-Out!

By definition, mindset represents “the cognitive processes activated in response to a given task”. Translated to an everyday jargon, our mindset is our way of thinking, our own frame of mind.
