WHAT’S BEHIND OUR NAME
LEA name born merging the names and the family name of their Founders:
Luca & Elena Atti
Then they discover on the Oxford Dictionary of English that LEA means an open area of arable and fertile land
Lea is also a biblical matriarch, the unloved wife of the patriarch Jacob, who after their first children together decide to marry with LEA’s sister Rachel. The Bible tells that God saw that she was unloved and opened her womb to give birth to six more children for Jacob.
L.E.A stands also for LEARN EMPOWER ACHIEVE, the three principles we follow to guide the clients throughout their coaching process.
The L.E.A. APPROACH is the fastest and longest lasting way to become the best version of yourself and to experience a mindset change in a change management scenario.
THE L.E.A. APPROACH IS
• a cyclic and expansive professional and personal development
• an exponential spiral of growth where to integrate your previous achievements into the new cycle of learnings
Raise your awareness of your strengths, biases, tradeoff, processes, strategies and core values by being resourceful, curious, courageous and deep.
Clarify your definition of success and your career purpose, defining your leadership, mission and vision and the desired timeline through design thinking, creativity, innovation and clarity.
Focus on execution, prioritization and success measurement. Translate your vision into action, through SMART goals setting.
Become fulfilled, action driven, accountable, resilient focused and flexible.
The Co-Active training institute is widely recognized as the most rigorous professional coach training and certification program in the industry.
Co-Active coaches are trained to coach anyone, on any topic, with confidence, supported by the Co-Active Model, known as the most flexible and successful model in the coaching world. The Co-Active Model’s approach is tailored to an individual’s unique skills and abilities. Instead of instructing an individual on what they should do, it sparks curiosity and draws on their creativity.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming is about learning the language that your own mind speaks. In other words, NLP is like a user’s manual for the brain, the study of excellent communication–both with yourself, and with others.
In the NLP philosophy, the conscious mind is the goal setter, and the unconscious mind is the goal getter. NLP will teach you how to manage the communication between your conscious and unconscious brain in order to achieve the results you put your mind to.
There is no better time, during this pandemic, to take advantage of the unique circumstances to develop best practices in parenting. Your life, your family, and most importantly, your kids will benefit immensely by what you will learn. Experience how to see the world through your children’s eyes and discover what’s really going on for them (you will be surprised and delighted). Address the truths about relationships rather than try to solve superficial problems. Create impactful and lasting change that will make your family life easier and a lot more fun. You’ll learn new concepts and practice new skills to focus on developing thinking and to get different ways to approach all your relationships.
They say opposites attract and that is how, in 2002, Elena and Luca became a couple. Elena, a performer and Luca, an engineer. Despite coming from two completely different backgrounds with divergent stories, they soon discovered their common values: resilience, freedom, curiosity and creativity.
In 2010, they became parents to their son, Gabriele: the biggest transformation in their lives.
They had to reconsider their mindset and behaviour, but their biggest challenge was to find, in parallel, the best way to convey their values to their child and process their own emotions together with his. Gabriele taught them to be resourceful and flexible.
In 2013, they welcomed their second gift: their daughter, Arianna.
She taught them that love, acceptance and routine were the key for success in parenthood and triggered the deepest and strongest personal development project that Elena and Luca encountered as individuals, a couple and as a family.
In 2015, their corporate jobs together with their need for a new learning scene, brought them to Dubai (UAE), where they met many other individuals and professionals embarking on a journey similar to theirs and striving for fulfillment, success and growth. As a result, they created LEA Growing People to support every human being, family, and professional in their journey towards discovery, love and personal development.
LEA stands for " Learn -> Empower -> Achieve", 3 words for summarizing our coaching process.
According Oxford Dictionary of English, LEA means an open area of arable land.
And ultimately, Lea merges the essence of our names, Luca Elena Atti, together, because we believe in the unique value of our union.
