"I would like to thank you for the opportunity to attend such an inspiring event – I learned a lot about myself, my team and the situations that could arise around. Since then I started to realise some of the things I had not been realising before.

I am pretty sure that if all the teams in any company would be open to such discussions, many conflicts or issues would have been avoided. I would recommend this session to everyone!

It was a pleasure listening to you. I was really impressed."

"I was prompted to work with Sophia because I know her. She’s wonderful, knowledgeable and intelligent. She knows my business and I felt she could help me.

The biggest breakthrough came while learning about DISC in the group training where I could exchange with the other professionals from my industry.

Sophia has very good empathy and I would definitely recommend anyone to work with her."

"I started at a new company and was promptly promoted to a management role. I realized I need coaching but there was nobody in my organization that could help me. I decided to reach out to Sophia as I knew that she had been on a similar path professionally and is very successful. I wanted to be coached by someone who knows what I’m going through from their own experience.

My biggest learning was that I started to see people in a new light, to connect with them. Before I was quick to jump to conclusions about people, then I worked with Sophia and now I try to understand and connect with them first. I understood it’s all about the people and I in fact work in a people business too.
I improved my relationships at work and with external providers. I applied what Sophia advised after each session. I started to reflect on what type of leader I want to be.

Sophia is a great listener and asks the right questions which shift something in your brain. I always felt she believes in me. She is also very friendly and charming but firm when she needs to be and holds you accountable for your progress. I appreciate Sophia’s experience and maturity.

I now see I’m not the only person looking for their path and others are struggling too. I appreciate myself more and see my current situation as my learning path and a growth opportunity for which I am responsible.

I started being a bit more gentle with myself and not so self-demanding. Through DISC analysis I did with Sophia I understood that nothing is wrong with me, certain personality traits are just who I am. I began to appreciate them more.
I’d say if you’re interested in your progress you have to learn from the right person with real life experience and skills. I’d also say that Sophia is someone who believes in self development and growth and it’s very inspiring."

"I had several breakthroughs thanks to the group training. As a matter of fact, in the last session Sophia said something that completely changed the way I saw a difficult relationship at work, so I could go back to work the next day and feel completely relaxed around someone who had triggered me for a long time. I feel inspired to become a better communicator and colleague now because I know it’s on me."

"Wow! So incredibly professional, well-spoken, and pleasant to listen to! Super interesting topic and so important! Everyone would need to hear this, everyone can learn from this webinar. I like the whole concept of that we are all needed. For me, there were several new insights and a lot of thoughts that were set in motion. I want to learn more!"

"I’m so glad that I decided to join Sophia’s Mastermind group. Hearing from peers about their wins and struggles, and sharing my own experience and challenges was more helpful than I could have imagined. I don’t have anyone at work that I can have similar discussions with. I relate to co-workers in a more relaxed way today thanks to the work we did in the group."

"I've experienced Sophia as my personal coach as well as a trainer to my team with focus on DISC application in our daily communication. I've been amazed by Sophia's listening skills, her ability to analyse the information shared and to draw very clear and powerful conclusions to my team and myself. She is a true leader; she is passionate about what she does and she gives you the inspiration which you are seeking for on your personal development path. Her seminars are engaging, energetic and fun. If you are looking for a worth spent time on the improvement of your or your team's leadership skills - go ahead, I highly recommend Sophia!"

"I met Sophia during a conference about DISC. I was fascinated about the subject but moreover by the way Sophia communicated. By that time, I was trying to understand what stopped me. I had so many things to share but I frequently failed to get my message through. I started with a DISC profile as I was hoping to get the necessary keys to go that extra mile.

During the coaching sessions, I discovered that communication with others only works if you are really captivated by what you are doing and saying.

I like the way Sophia brings you to reflect on the situation more broadly, open your mind to new horizons, searching for what makes you vibrate.

Before I was much more direct in saying things to people, positive or negative, and did not always take care about the sensitivity of other people. During the coaching, I learned to adapt my communication to the people to whom I wanted to pass my message. I learned to be a better listener as well.

Sophia is a solar person. After each coaching session, I had that feeling of self-satisfaction/ confidence. She makes sure that YOU find the way to become the BEST VERSION OF YOU."
