Elena Buriani

Co-Founder & CEO
Leadership & Team, Parental & Family Coach

After working as Talent & HR Recruiter for Tetra Pak Packaging Solutions and after being gifted with a Special Need Child, I developed the passion for: leadership, positive intelligence, performance excellence, conflict management and adaptive strategies.
By co-Founding with my husband Luca LEA Growing People, my mission is to develop high performing leaders, impactful teams, confident parents and balanced families.
I stand for reducing limiting beliefs and sterile behaviours, holding the vision that challenges and conflicts can always be transformed into growth opportunities.

I founded LEA Growing People, alongside my husband Luca, to help founders, C-suite executives, teams, parents, and couples learn, get empowered, and achieve their goals.
Italian, with a degree in foreign languages, I went on to pursue a career in a MNC as a Human Resources Recruitment specialist before launching a non-profit organization, Le Pleiadi. Its mission was to deliver personal development strategies and help create a sustainable community. Following that, I soon launched Music Together Sol Mi Do, bonding parents and young children (newborn to five years old) through music and movement.
After moving to Dubai, I founded Music Together Sol Mi Do Dubai and, as a former professional dancer, enjoying a lifelong relationship with body awareness, and being married to a blackbelt kung fu master – I also became Pilates and Qi Gong instructor.
Through my experience as a mum, and interacting with various families, I discovered how life-changing and precious it is to use mirroring, emotions, actions and communication to strengthen all relationships. This inspired me to pursue my coaching journey, and I became a Co-Active and Parental Certified Coach.
Through my experience as talents expert and as an entrepreneur and interacting with various corporates, partners and teams, I discovered how career-changing can be to show up authentic for what you are, together with the importance of creating a judgemental free and a psychologically safe environment for you to express freely your potential, to connect and to impact at work as well as at home.
I’m passionate about helping my clients unleash their full potential, and creating a community of free, safe, aware, fulfilled and emotionally intelligent beings: leaders, teams, parents and children.
By founding LEA Growing People, my mission is to support leaders, teams, couples, parents and families, undergoing the same life transformation that I have undergone with my husband, family and companies. With LEA’s handpicked team of extremely qualified coaches and mentors – the team not only helps our clients reach new heights, they also helped the founding team get to where they currently are.

You are doing such an important work, dear Elena, especially on the topic of confident parents. Confident parents will raise confident children, with expanding beliefs, instead of the limiting ones. The work starts with the self, with the parents. How many of us carry our limiting beliefs from childhood, and yet – all our parents were doing the their best, as much as they could. Keep doing it dear, lead by example

LEA can help empower individual, reignite social and familial relationships, create an enriched foundation for parents and their babies, engineer intelligent career paths, and much more.

LEA helped me transform.

Elena really provided me tools for how to deal with a very difficult situation in my life. She is a great coach and I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family.

I had one Co Active session with Elena. She was professional yet intuitive. It was also far more intense than I expected.. But the affirmative note from the end of the session unfailingly grounds me in the now and brings me back to my real self… Just looking at the slip.

I can highly recommend Elena for her Positive Intelligence coaching course.
She is very professional, understanding and non judgemental and comes with many years of life experience too.She will really help you to reach your goals and works on helping you to develop a more positive mindset.I highly recommend her, such a beautiful positive Soul and vibrant women.

Elena thank you for your time and energy and love, is just so amazing, yours are such a lovely insightful sessions, it definitely worths exploring in our life and exploring how we can improve ourselves tremendously. You did such an amazing awesome job, I take my head of to you for the wonderful work that your are doing, and for the amazing achievement you have in transforming your parenting and your relationship with your child: it could not have been an easy task and it is an everyday development.
I send you respect and love and honor for that.

My favourite part of the programme, was the insight I gained from only my first session. How Elena set the session to create an open environment for me to feel comfortable to open up which didn’t feel forced but as I had a responsibility to myself to show up and embrace the journey ahead. Her creative approach which allowed us to explore my where I was at and how I was feeling in my life, came with such ease, fun and was eye opening.

Being able to trace my progress with the coach and see how my mindset has changed.
