The best choice for training and change

Comprehensive training in Coaching combining theory and practice. Ms. Asimakopoulou's talent and contagiousness give a wonderful dimension to the program. Her incredible ability to choose partners has brought remarkable and accomplished people to this program who have taught and inspired us! Ground was created for development, and I was so excited that I wanted more. Overall, the program delivered what I expected. The positivity and fun at our meetings, my bonding with classmates, and the feeling of belonging will always accompany me!

Self-awareness and power

Ersi Stefanou, ACC
CSTP 5, Talent Director Newrosoft

I feel very grateful to have attended and completed Barbara's program. I thank her for accepting me in her program and teaching me so much! I further developed the skills required to become a good coach, but more importantly, I got to know myself. It was a magical journey of self-awareness and strength. It was a trip where together with my classmates, we understood in practice the power of personal motivation, the power of the mind, and the power of self-awareness. You can achieve everything as long as you know what you want - your goal -why it is essential to you, what you are willing to do to achieve it, and how you will achieve it! And how beautiful and complete you feel when you see it done! Abundance flows…

Professional Coaching Beyond represents the ultimate tool for a newly certified coach facing the question, "What's next?". This guide dramatically contributes to the development of our coaching practice. I was captivated. It answers all the questions for a coach after completing the training. It is the means to develop into a thriving professional coach. Thank you, Barbara, for this fantastic work!

It ends up there is something new under the sun. Barbara Asimakopoulou explores the deepest roots of coaching, embedded in the philosophies of Socrates, Plato, and Aristotle. This is much more than a typical book on coaching or leadership.

Great book

George Babiniotis
Professor at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens

Your book "Inner Emancipation" for leadership is great. You utilize a wide variety of factors - ideas, spiritual elements, mental qualities, etc. - that actually shape and characterize the leader. Frequent reference to Socrates adds another dimension to your book. Congratulations.

  • Η ενεργητική ακρόαση είναι μια δεξιότητα που προάγει την ανάπτυξη των ανθρώπων, την ουσιαστική επικοινωνία, τη συνεργασία, την επίλυση συγκρούσεων, την πρόοδο και την επαγγελματική επιτυχία.
