Testimonials from our Coaching Clients
 

I would like to thank Barbara for an excellent personal coaching program in which I had the privilege to be assigned by my company. Barbara had a unique way of creating an open and friendly environment keeping at the same time the focus on the professional objectives, that mutually have been set, as main priority. The identification of personality strengths followed by practical consultancies of capitalizing them for the personal and professional development, combined effectively with innovative ways to positively use possible weaknesses. All above provides a solid action plan with a pioneering combination of ancient Greek philosophers’ golden knowledge and modern coaching Technics. These will essentially assist my current and follow my future professional and personal steps or sure!

Lila Koufopoulou, Marketing Communications Coordinator & Fine Arts Artist.

Our meetings helped me to understand what my true values are and how important it is to be expressed in every working environment. Furthermore, I felt stronger and more confident about myself. I feel more "daring" and "open minding".  You always brought me back to what was most important in achieving my goal. In this way I learned to be focused and overcome any obstacle without wasting energy.

AA, Sales Professional

The great success for me is the impetus that got to act against my expectations and even succeed! What I learned is to sidetrack the fear that kept me still.  I dare say that I managed to gain with your help many experiences that others would never have because they just did not try.  I changed my attitude towards life and so I am grateful. Wherever I get  I will always know and I want you to know too that your contribution was substantial.

Artemis Dimitroula,  Architecture engineer

I am completely satisfied with our coaching sessions. When  we started  the meetings I expected from you   to help me and guide me right to clarify my thoughts and prioritize my wants and actions.  I had learned, I had revealed myself and I had had excellent moments…... Our  meetings were human,  efficient and professional.

Claire Venetsanakou, Organizational Psychologist


You were a great coach, thank you very much.

EK, Family business owner

The contribution of Barbara was catalytic as acknowledging the issues which puzzled me and highlighting the exact solutions that would help me, guided me to put in an order and balance between what I want and  what should be done. She especially helped me to regain my lost self-esteem .
From Barbara, I hold her scientific training, her experience in the business, her continuous update on an abundance of issues, her flexibility and the most important of all, the building of a genuine personal relationship.

AA, Investment Advisor

I feel the need to express in writing my enthusiasm for the course and the outcome.
I succeeded to see exactly the steps I needed to pay attention in order to design my next career  plan.
Finally, I want to point out your ability to actively listen and to receive the concerns of your coachee with real interest. Your ability helps greatly in the course of the sessions and I believe that you stand out not only as a coach but as a human too.
Thank you

SM, MBA, Commercial  Director

Testimonials of Participants in Coaching Leadership

"An outstanding program that puts you in the “search engine” called coaching, to dig deep for your own truth. The exceptional Mrs. Asimakopoulou, challenges and invites us with mastery to this wonderful connection, aligned with our values, inspired by the ancient Greek philosophy in a quest to become the best version of ourselves!"
"Ένα εξαιρετικό πρόγραμμα που σε βάζει στη "μηχανή αναζήτησης" που λέγεται coaching για να σκάψεις βαθιά για την αλήθεια σου.  H εξαιρετική κα Ασημακoπούλου, με μαεστρία μας προκαλεί και μας προσκαλεί σε αυτήν την υπέροχη σύνδεση και ευθυγράμμιση με τις αξίες μας, με την αρχαία ελληνική φιλοσοφία και με το πως θα μπορούσαμε να γίνουμε η καλύτερη εκδοχή του εαυτού μας!"

Κλεοπάτρα Ανερούσου,  Eπιχειρηματίας, Αθήνα
Cleopatra Anerousou, Entrepreneur, Athens


"It’s a new leadership model that offers people self-awareness and inner power to move forward towards their personal and professional fulfillment. The great empathy of Mrs. Asimakopoulou eliminates every distance, and the teaching of the "Socratic Method", challenges you, motivates and engages you, aiming to "living the life you deserve, a meaningful life."
"Ένα νέο μοντέλο ηγεσίας που προσφέρει στους ανθρώπους αυτογνωσία και δύναμη για να προχωρήσουν στην προσωπική και επαγγελματική τους ολοκλήρωση. Πολλά μπράβο στην κυρία Βαρβάρα Ασημακοπούλου. Η αμεσότητά της εκμηδενίζει κάθε απόσταση και η διδασκαλία της "Σωκρατική", σε προκαλεί, σε παρακινεί και σε δεσμεύει, με στόχο, "να ζήσεις την ζωή που σου αξίζει, μια ζωή με νόημα".

Lydia Antoniou, Founder of Lydia’s Homemade Pastries

Ξένια Παπανικολάου, Ιατρός , Αθήνα

"Unique, extraordinary, outstanding. It touched me profoundly and will help me in the course of my life."
"Μοναδικό, ανεπανάληπτο, ξεχωριστό. Με άγγιξε εσωτερικά και θα με βοηθήσει στην πορεία της ζωής μου."

Σοφοκλής Ακίδης, Κύπρος
Sofoklis Akides, Cyprus

 

"Each section of this program grips you and each time you want more. The philosophical depth and the explanation of the importance of our values are completely addictive."
"Κάθε ενότητα του προγράμματος σε καθηλώνει και κάθε φορά θέλεις και άλλο. Είναι άκρως εθιστική η φιλοσοφική εμβάθυνση και η επεξήγηση της σημαντικότητας των αξιών."

Γιώργος Μπούκης, Επιχειρηματίας, Αθήνα
George Boukis, Entrepreneur, Athens

 

"If for Cicero Socrates is the first philosopher to take down the philosophy of the stars on Earth, for me coaching is the tool that can lift every human being - from the Earth to the stars by urging us to live authentically, consciously with eudemonia . As a crowning of the wonderful journey you offered me through this program I just quote Seligman's words "Re-crafting Your Life"! This is my motto."
"Αν για τον Κικέρων ο Σωκράτης  είναι ο πρώτος φιλόσοφος  που κατέβασε την φιλοσοφία από τα αστέρια στην Γη, για εμένα το coaching είναι το εργαλείο που μπορεί να ανεβάσει τον άνθρωπο- τον κάθε άνθρωπο- από την Γη στ’ αστέρια προτρέποντας μας σε μια ζωή «αυθεντική», «συνειδητή» με «ευδαιμονία». Σαν επιστέγασμα του υπέροχου ταξιδιού που μου προσφέρατε μέσα από αυτό το πρόγραμμα απλά παραθέτω τα λόγια του Seligman “Re-crafting  your Life”! Αυτό δεσμεύομαι να είναι motto μου."  

Sonia Pappa, Archeologist, Kuwait, Σόνια Παππά, αρχαιολόγος, Κουβέιτ


"I feel that a new pathway has been opened for me and all these things, that had been in a mess in my head for a long time, now they are well in place. You showed me the wings I have inside me and how ready I feel for my take-off."
"Νιώθω ότι μου ανοίχτηκε ένας δρόμος και όλα αυτά που τόσο καιρό ήταν ανάκατα στο μυαλό μου, σήμερα έχουν μπει σε μια σειρά. Νοιώθω ότι μου έδειξε τα φτερά που κρύβω μέσα μου και πόσο έτοιμος νιώθω για την απογείωσή μου. "

Giannis Vlachakis, Business Consultant, Crete, Γιάννης Βλαχάκης , Σύμβουλος Επιχειρήσεων, Κρήτη

Από τα καλύτερα και πιο ολοκληρωμένα σεμινάρια που έχω παρακολουθήσει".

Theodore Panelis, Cosmote e-value, Athens, Θοδωρής Πανέλης, Cosmote e-value, Αθήνα

Παρά την γεωγραφική απόσταση, η αλληλεπίδραση μέσω της τεχνολογίας με τους συνεκπαιδευόμενους και την εκπαιδεύτριά μας έπαιξαν καθοριστικό ρόλο στην εμπέδωση του αντικειμένου μελέτης"

Σοφία Κώττη, Μουσικός, Χίος
Sofia Kotti, Musician, Chios

"Το πρόγραμμα άνοιξε τον τρόπο σκέψης μου, ανακάλυψα σημαντικά πράγματα για μένα και μου έδωσε τη θέληση να αλλάξω και να κάνω  πράγματα που θα με αναδείξουν και θα με κάνουν καλύτερο! Με οδηγό την κα  Βαρβάρα Ασημακοπούλου η οποία είναι χαρισματική και ικανότατη, που μας ενέπνεε σε όλη τη διαδρομή.

Nikos Sakellariou, Medical Representative, Pharmaceutical company

 

"A very strong experience that inspires, shapes and speaks immensely about your truth and your life, until it gives you the motivation for the change you need. This journey, with Ms. Asimakopoulou, illuminates the place you find yourself in, the path you choose to follow and gives you the power to continue. I suggest to those who seek to attend such a program to give this present to themselves."
"Μια πολύ δυνατή εμπειρία που εμπνέει, μορφώνει και μιλάει καθηλωτικά για την αλήθεια σου και την ζωή σου, μέχρι να σου δώσει την ώθηση για την αλλαγή που χρειάζεσαι.  Η διαδρομή αυτή, με την κα Ασημακοπούλου, σου φωτίζει τον τόπο που βρίσκεσαι,  τον δρόμο που θα επιλέξεις να πάρεις και σου δίνει δύναμη να συνεχίσεις. Προτείνω σε όσους ψάχνουν να παρακολουθήσουν ένα πρόγραμμα να κάνουν αυτό το δώρο στον εαυτό τους."

ΓΣ, Project Manager, Αθήνα
GS, Project Manager, Athens


"A complete training program that helped me start a journey whose benefits have already begun to appear in my relationships at personal and professional level. I have no words to thank Mrs Barbara Asimakopoulou for her contribution. I was lucky with our cooperation."
"Ένας ολοκληρωμένος κύκλος σπουδών που με βοήθησε να ξεκινήσω ένα ταξίδι  που τα οφέλη του έχουν ήδη αρχίσει να φαίνονται στις σχέσεις μου με τους άλλους σε προσωπικό και σε επαγγελματικό επίπεδο. Δεν έχω λόγια να ευχαριστήσω την κα Βαρβάρα Ασημακοπούλου για  τη συμβολή της. Ήμουν τυχερή με τη συνεργασία μας."

Ευγενία Καπριγιάννη , Διευθύντρια, Δημόσιος Υπάλληλος, Αττική
Eugenia Kaprigianni, Director, Public Servant, Athens


"This program is progressively and gradually changing from an educational and professional program to a new way of life. I recommend it to everyone who seeks to live their lives through the eyes of the soul and the mind."
"Το πρόγραμμα αυτό μεταβάλλεται σταδιακά και βαθμιαία από εκπαιδευτικό και επαγγελματικό πρόγραμμα σε έναν νέο τρόπο ζωής. Το προτείνω σε όλους όσους αναζητούν να ζήσουν τη ζωή τους με τα μάτια της ψυχής και της συνειδητότητας."

Γεωργία Παπαδημητρίου , Υποδιεύθυνση HR Account Management ΟΤΕ Group, Αθήνα
Georgia Papadimitriou,  OTE Group, Athens


"The personal development plan was an amazing discovery process that helped me to see some points of myself that I used to avoid. Sometimes it is difficult to admit our truth even to ourselves, but only by exercising and illuminating the innermost part of ourselves we can change and improve the conditions of our lives."
"Tο προσωπικό σχέδιο βελτίωσης ήταν μια εκπληκτική διαδικασία εξερεύνησης που με βοήθησε να δω κάποια σημεία του εαυτού μου που αποφεύγω. Μερικές φορές είναι δύσκολο να παραδεχτούμε την αλήθεια μας ακόμη και στον ίδιο μας τον εαυτό, αλλά μόνο δουλεύοντας και φωτίζοντας το εσώτερο κομμάτι του μπορούμε να αλλάξουμε και να βελτιώσουμε τις συνθήκες της ζωής μας."
