    Early & Circular Career Development / Strengths-Based Consulting Services

    Do you wonder how to help your children avoid a profession that suits them like an oversized readymade suit?


    I help youngsters find a career path that suits them like a tailor-made suit instead of staying in confusion that leads them to choose the “give-me-any-job-occupation” career option.

    My Message for Teenagers and Young Adults:

    What are you interested in?

    Programming? Sustainability? Medicine? Politics? Community Service and Social Justice? Are you in love with Maths, Physical Sciences, Engineering, Aeronautics, History? Working with children is something that inspires you? You are passionate about Languages? Or you’re more of a creative, literary type having the ambition to write books, create podcasts or become a filmmaker?

    Do you have in mind something else I haven’t mentioned? Or do you have an idea but wished you knew how to make it happen? Or… you still have no idea what it could be? Whatever stage you’re in at present, I will be here to help you enjoy your process of unlocking your strengths. I‘ll give my best to help you find your “whys” that will help you develop the grit to push through challenges, whether it‘ll be choosing a hobby, high school/college, creating a company, getting the first job, etc.

    Together we will discover tips on how to get you in process of finding the job(s) that’ll suit You.

    Achieving straight As, getting into a good college, obtaining a high-paying job, are not the goals… they are results of our strengths in action when we succeed in our ideal field. Trying to impress colleagues or following what everyone else does is not the road to getting to your authenticity.

    My Message to Parents:

    Along with supporting and encouraging your children to develop their talents and grow into confident, proficient lifelong learners who follow their intuition and grow in self-knowledge and self-awareness, would you be interested to learn how to parent your children while using your strengths?

    Besides helping you find your unique way to parent your child while using your gifts, I can be your “sage on the side” in:

    • Finding the job that’s right for you that turns your passion into paychecks
    • Customizing a specific and winning strategy that minimizes your weaknesses and plays more to your personal (or your team’s strengths/capacities)

    I also do Strengths-Based
    Consulting sessions with:

    • Educators
    • Professionals and Teams
    • Gifted, Talented and
      2e Individuals!

    Possible to do it in workshop form.

    Workshops for Children, Teenagers, and Young Adults

    My Future Job Workshop

    Participating in My Future Job Workshop, helps participants gain self-awareness and self-knowledge about their future professional perspectives adapted to their unique set of potentials and personalities. My Future Job workshop is about guiding young (teens and young adults) to find a perfect match: satisfaction, stability, and success in what they do for a living, finding congruence between their personality (individual talents) and the environment in which he/she works.

    BrainLab & Sensory Diet Workshop

    This workshop combines the elements of Right Brain Education, SEL (Social-Emotional Learning) self-regulation, and self-relaxation methods. We will instruct children on social-emotional competencies but also show them how to enhance their overall learning and creative capacities.

    Peers4Play Workshop with Smart Games®

    In this workshop, we get (gifted) children together. After playing some groups games, we offer them to choose one of numerous Smart Games® and let them play it individually. These are single-player games – children can play anywhere, anytime, and they don’t need an opponent. They can have fun exercising their brain on their own. Challenges in every game are divided into 4 or 5 difficulty levels.

    Workshop for Adults

    Multipotentiality – How to find my Personal Magic Formula?

    ”What do you want to be when you grow up?“ is a familiar, seemingly harmless question that we ask all children. For (gifted) kids/adults with strong multipotentiality traits of character, this can be a very stressful question. In this workshop, we’ll work on looking for your personal pattern, “common thread” because there’s no single way to live your multipotentiality.

    Workshops for Teams and Organisations

    Workshop using the LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® Methodology

    I am a certified facilitator of LEGO®SERIOUS PLAY ® methods and materials.

    It is all about facilitated thinking, communication, and problem-solving technique that organizations, teams, and individuals can have. It’s based on the concept of “speaking and thinking with your hands”. By facilitating one’s thought process, it’s possible to tap into the incredible pool of innovation and competitive–edge solutions that hide in one team. Through structured play, that encourages creativity, engagement, and everybody’s perspective, a team can double its performance and efficacy.

    Co-Creation Workshops

    What’s to co-create?!

    It’s about using firm’s ecosystem that consists of: customers/fans /employees/ startups/ suppliers/competitors /experts etc…

    Why use it?

    You want to create adapted products and services, more participation, better engagement, and deeper relationship of employees within your firm and get closer to your clients?

    TESTIMONIALS

    The workshops were dynamic and interesting, excellent communication with the facilitator, raising awareness and helping to cope with emotional reactions, helping to function better in the world of the average, and for parents, additional insight into the rich and often troubling inner world of their gifted child.

    I let Noah do it all himself because after all, he has to be able to apply everything you did on his own, so I don’t have a complete picture. I know that Noah preferred to participate with each following Saturday and that he was very sorry when they (workshops) ended, which means that they “suited” for him and were interesting. For me personally, the most important thing is that he began to recognize some situations in his own behavior that you’ve spoken about.

    I see that it is easier to calm down and not to be so afraid of failure.

    The child began to think about his professional possibilities in the future, to discern his abilities, to think about the harmonization of abilities and future profession. I think he better recognizes other people’s emotions and behavior and knows how to objectively treat other people’s behavior without sometimes being emotionally involved or considering other people’s behavior a personal fault.

    I especially liked the workshop about friendship. I learned a lot about feelings. I learned how to control stress, fear… That fear is a useful feeling to keep us safe, for example, while crossing the road… it was most useful and fun.

    Dear Miona,
    Your workshop really excites me. I am surrounded by gifted. My mother, brothers, my husband, my children, my students … not many gifted people know how to explain what they are going through.
    Fascinating to hear your point of view as gifted. How you transfer is fluent and so accurate. I identified with every word and was inspired to continue learning and researching the subject for the benefit of my environment and the gifted in general. Thank you!

    The children learned new materials, got to know, and expanded their knowledge of feelings. They must have learned a lot of new things about themselves. As a parent, I am very glad that there are these kinds of workshops, (…) that we parents and our children understand what they are good at, what their skills are to help us further guide the children. The workshop was great and I welcome such an approach to testing, assessing, and working with children in areas where they are “good”. (…) As in this case when this type of workshop was organized in cooperation with the school. I, as a parent, look at my child through my own prism so to me this workshop was also an additional getting to know my own child. Iris must have learned a lot more about herself and I believe she understood what she was “good at”. All praise and thanks for the work of Miona.
