Biography

Ceo & Founder of joanserracabado.com - Wellbeing & Conscious Leadership

More than 25 years of professional experience as a consultant, manager, and trainer.

I contribute to the Well-being, Efficiency, Collaboration and outstanding Leadership in Organizations, through coaching and very practical, accessible and transformative teachings aimed at leaders, teams and overall staffI.

I teach the world-renowned Mindfulness programs MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction) and SIY (Search Inside Yourself), the Mindfulness-based Emotional Intelligence for Leaders program developed by GOOGLE.

In my long experience as a manager, consultant (and mountaineer) I have been witness and protagonist of the success and failure of multitude projects. And over time I have discovered that the key to success was almost always the same: the degree of engagement and awareness of those involved. Projects do not usually fail due to a lack of objectives, strategy or organization (which sometimes also do) but because of the people involved in their design, development and execution. Aspects such as focus, clarity, stress and emotion management, motivation, resilience, empathy, collaboration …… seem to be key aspects for the success and balanced development of projects / businesses, people and the environment in which they develop.

After a professional career of more than 25 years as an entrepreneur, manager, consultant and trainer, since 2015 I decided to focus on the development of people, teams and organizations. I got trained with the best professionals in Coaching, Mindfulness, NLP and Emotional Intelligence, with the firm purpose of contributing to the good leadership, effectiveness and well-being of people, teams and organizations.
