Refilling an empty space

Interview to Eva Aksahn, Life Coach & Psychologist in United Arab Emirates. What does a coach do? We usually examine the goals that a person has, we analyse the personality intimately and, in a number of sessions, we move him or her towards the desired ambitions.   What is the part of a person that you coach? I’m involved more in life coaching then in business coaching, and we can say that who wants a private coach usually is scared to be or to do something and, at the same time, is already convinced that he or she wants to go “higher”. I look at their ‘high dreams’ and after I can coach the person to stop what obstruct the interior opportunity and let him or her to go beyond.   Does life coaching usually work? The result depends on the client’s commitment. I work to untangle the obstacles but what we can reach is a consequence from...

Every Action is a decision

Interview to Dawn Metcalfe, Managing Director at PSD-i in United Arab Emirate since 2010, trainer and coach. What does a coach do? A coach works with another person or people to help them get better at something. They play lots of different roles depending on what their coaching partner (I hate the term coachee!) needs from them. It usually involves gathering and giving feedback and asking questions to change perspective. Mostly we get to work with great people who are already superstars at something (otherwise why would anybody invest in coaching them?!) so it’s pretty much a dream job.   How can a coach build trust in a person or in a team?

Only a dreamer become a champion – an Interview to Daniele Garozzo

Interviewing Daniele Garozzo, the gold medalist in the Men's Individual Foil at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio De Janeiro. Daniele, you’re the best fencer in the world. How is a gold medal earned? We could say that you win it like any other one, but you earn it in a lifetime. It requires tremendous dedication. I started practicing at seven: I have always dreamt of that medal. What is needed is both luck and talent, but mainly a strong will for training.   Taking a look at the history of the renowned Acireale fencing school, and the champions that belong there, it seems kind of obvious that the environment is a cornerstone to creating champions. I was lucky to have been accepted into such a wonderful school, and they helped me a lot. We weren’t many people, but there was a positive environment, that made me feel at home, as i would be with...
