HOW MY WORK ON SELF-WORTH CAME TO BE:
Throughout 18 years of business coaching, I’ve often observed how a person’s relationship with themselves drives their behaviour towards clients, colleagues and peers. For example, when someone goes for an interview (or a first meeting), what is their intention? Are they trying to impress, or are they trying to explore? Are they interested in making a good impression, or in how they might bring value to the role? Like the proverbial iceberg, self-worth is the 80% below the waterline, driving a multitude of behaviours above the waterline.
Then, in the years 2015-16, I got a personal lesson in self-worth. One after the other, I was hit by a series of personal losses (end of a relationship, project-failure, Brexit and its consequences, the death of my mother) and suddenly I was that person self-preoccupied with the “Who-the-hell-am-I” question. Though I might have intellectually understood the difference between conditional self-esteem and intrinsic self-worth, I found I was certainly not living it.
The Self-Worth Safari grew out of my own struggles and the subsequent discovery that I was not alone. It has turned into the adventure of a lifetime: the realisation that no matter what is happening around me, I can always be a friend to myself. Having piloted this with c. 120 people, we see the power of self-worth to transform careers, sales, confidence as well as a host of personal applications: from self-care to sense of purpose.

COACHING ON SELF-WORTH IN THE REALM OF EDUCATION, WORK AND PERSONAL LIFE
Seminars, Courses, Mindful Walks
“And if I asked you to name all the things you love, how long would it take for you to name yourself?”
Claudia is a translator, interpreter, tour guide and planner, teacher of foreign languages in Italy and Italian for foreigners elsewhere, with a passion for cinema, travel and Argentine tango. She has lived in several places in Italy and abroad (UK, Belgium, USA, Luxembourg). As she is a trained translator and interpreter, she speaks Italian, English and French fluently.
A few years ago she stumbled upon Mindfulness and she had an immediate insight: in very little time she decided to start the teacher training pathway with the School of Medicine at the University of Massachusetts, where Jon Kabat-Zinn founded the Center for Mindfulness and designed the now renowned MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) Protocol.
She has completed two courses of Mindfulness for Children and Adolescents, with Mindful Schools (2015) and Amy Saltzman (2017) and one on Mindful Eating (2015) with Jan Chozen Bays. She has a particular interest in Self-Compassion as studied by Kristin Neff and in Insight Dialogue, i.e. Mindfulness applied to social relations and communication. In 2017 she met John Niland and immediately joined his Self-Worth Safari, finding a lot of common ground with her interest in self-care and self-compassion, and has become one of the first licensees, integrating it in her Mindfulness-based activities (MBSR Protocol cycles, Education and Corporate workshops and courses, retreats in nature, online sessions, special courses for caregivers, etc.).
COACHING ON SELF-WORTH IN THE REALM OF LEADERSHIP
Monika brings 18 years of experience in leadership development and change management to her coaching. Her coaching combines systemic coaching and the gestalt therapy (head and heart) as these together lead to success and satisfaction.
For the last 12 years, she has been running a very successful “Head & Heart®” Leadership program, based in Prague. The program focuses on empowering one’s self-worth in leadership positions.
More than ever, today’s leaders need a strong relationship with themselves. If this is absent, they fall into classic pitfalls such as people-pleasing, proving themselves, seeking validation and/or ego-fulfillment. The result is a “needy leader”.
When a leader possesses true self-worth, they have more impact. They transmit a powerful sense of purpose to others. They empower the people around them. Being anchored on permanent values, they win trust. Their vision is compelling and attractive.
COACHING ON SELF-WORTH IN THE REALM OF LEADERSHIP AND CULTURE IN INTERNATIONAL ENVIRONMENTS
Sonja is the founder of The Other Perspective, an international management consultancy, based in the Netherlands focusing on organisational culture, leadership and coaching. She holds a master’s degree in communications, is a certified executive (team) coach with a background in management consultancy and international people & culture leadership roles.
To help individuals, teams and/or organisations grow and reach their potential, self-worth is vital for any organisation. Any leader who strives for higher productivity & employee engagement levels and better financial performance will benefit from understanding the concept and as such live his or her own values, in an authentic manner.
