A reflection on 2013

Learnings from 2013

This year was a very interesting year on a professional and personal level.

And, as I told you in the short Holiday message movie that you can find below, we had our ups but we also had our downs, and I think that we should treasure even more the downs than the ups. Why?

Home Coaching Series #1 – Celebrate 2013 achievements and plan for 2014


I simply love the idea of meeting with a few people in a cosy environment and having a  coaching meeting where we talk about how was the year that finishes soon and how to be sure we will achieve our objectives in the next coming year. Chiara, one of my friends from Brussels, had this great idea of doing a first “workshop” in a very informal place (someone’s home), with snacks and drinks, and only very few people that get the chance to talk one-to-one with a coach and work on themselves on a specific topic. I am invited as the coach that will lead the conversation.

You can find below the description of the meeting in Brussels next week. If you are interested, register now as we have very limited places available (the limit of the living room 🙂 ).

Year resolution2013 is almost over and a new year is coming!
It’s the time of the year when you think of what you achieved this year and what you’d like to achieve next year.

Do you have the impression you’ve not fulfilled your 2013 resolutions?
Are you already writing down your new year’s resolutions but not believing you’ll fulfill all of them?

What if you have achieved more than you thought you would in 2013? What if there was a more effective way to plan your 2014?

Get the best from your relationship!

Happy couple cycling in the cityI think that learning this in school would have been useful for my whole life. But nobody taught me. I did learn a few things from my parents, but they were not always an example for a harmonious relationship. I did learn a bit during my interactions with school, university and work colleagues and then a little bit from friends or during my different relationships with a partner. Sometimes I learned the hard way, but most of the times I did not improve anything because I did not know what I was supposed to learn.

Sharing knowledge from TEDx Brussels 2013

TedX Brussels28th of October 2013 was my first TEDx experience and I have to say it was a very inspiring one! With the theme “Do something out of nothing”, #TEDxBrussels 2013 brought on stage amazing speakers, all sharing great ideas.  The areas touched by the them were diverse, but they all have something in common: science. Be it education, youth unemployment, music, food, protecting animals, technology, they all proved that we live in a world that is constantly changing, evolving, and has more opportunities to offer than ever before!

I am grateful!

Thank youThey say that being grateful creates more happiness in life.

If you don’t believe that, try it yourself by saying something that you are grateful for everyday.

I tested it with myself, my clients and my seminars’ participants: gratitude is one of the highest positive emotions that a human being can experience.

In Brussels, let’s meet in the European Parliament or outside

It’s more than a year since I started delivering seminars in the European Parliament in Brussels and I realize now that I managed to make a difference in so many people’s lives. Not because I delivered some content during the seminars or because we had some discussions in our coaching sessions, but because those people decided to take action afterwards. And I want to thank them for not letting vanish the motivation they got and that they used it to get results! And results are the ones that talk today! See more about those results on the Testimonial page.

Every time I organized workshops in the EP, I also had participants that were not necessarily working inside there. So, this time I organized my time differently: we will meet in the European Parliament for some of the best seminars I delivered there and we will have one workshop delivered outside of the EP building, where anyone can register.

We have limited seats: first registered, first served! So, if you want to get what it takes to move a step forward towards your objective or getting out of your problem, take action and register now on the links you have in the description of every seminar.

The topics this time are:

Making a difference: a great client feedback

A few weeks ago I finished a coaching program with one of my clients from the European Parliament in Bruxelles. I knew she had incredible results, but I did not expect such good feedback! And I wanted to share it with you too. 
“Participating in Lidia’s seminars and training sessions was my best career move since I started working in the European Parliament two years ago.

What do you need? Creativity, Feedback, Priorities or Relaxation?

This week I am going back to Bruxelles to deliver new seminars and meet my dear friends and clients. I designed new workshops that will talk about Creativity, How to give and receive feedback, How to manage time better by knowing the roles you are playing and what are your priorities and we will Relax with some interesting techniques that we also used last time.

We have limited seats: first registered, first served! So, write now an email to lidia@uptitude.it or contact me via the form at the end of the article.

My first seminar in Italian! My first Uptitude seminar!

io sonoI can say it was an amazing success! And the applauses of the participants said that too. It’s called Discover Yourself and Your Hidden Potential and it’s about what is important for us in life and what drives us.

We did not have much time (only 7 hours), but as I promised the participants, I gave them a taste of what are some of the invisible forces that guide our lives. It was the foam of a tasteful Capuccino. 🙂  Continue reading
