The serious work stuff

I am a Certified Professional Coach & Leadership Facilitator, author of the book "You've got algorithm, but can you dance? – Learn how to lead with heart and empathy." 

Drawing on my experience as a software developer and project manager and my own journey of self-development, I coach leaders—from new managers to C-suite executives at Fortune 500 companies—and facilitate leadership growth. Underpinning my work is my belief that living up to one's potential as an authentic leader requires a seamless integration of both analytical skills and emotional intelligence.

 

My passion and focus

I've worked with many clients in the high-tech, biotech, and banking industries. They are aspiring leaders or established executives with expert technical minds who are brave enough to want to change and advance to higher levels. I believe people are fascinating and I love working with clients who are equally curious about self-development and improving social interactions.

The essence of my work is to facilitate self-growth by helping people identify the core challenges and setbacks in their lives so that they can overcome them with confidence. I call it "Having algorithm and learning how to dance."

More about my background

I am Italian and was born and raised in Switzerland's French Alps, where I lived until I moved to the San Francisco Bay Area. I developed an understanding of diverse business cultures by working globally, with people from countries such as Europe, the U.S.A., China, Southeast Asia, Africa, and Central America. This helped me to be more suited to work in the multi-cultural environments of today's high-tech industry. 
 

I am fluent in Italian and French as native languages, and Spanish at a professional level.

The fun part

I have volunteered in medical missions in Africa and Asia. I enjoy hiking in solitude, adventurous motorcycle rides, and relaxing my mind while painting

There is nothing that motivates me more than seeing people take on a challenge and daring to be their true selves.

Let's dance!
