Everything was wonderful! The group of participants, the choice of space, the educational material, the approach during teaching and practice, the instructors/coaches. The liveliness and faith of the excellent Barbara Asimakopoulos to transmit the best know-how in the most effective way leave no room for anything less! Her contribution but also this of her amazing team was critical and important, every time. I feel lucky and thankful for participating in this program. A program that came as a "gift" in my life as it found me looking to enrich my profile and enhance my professional career.
" People need more visionaries like Barbara"
Sissy Stranomyti, ACC, CSTP 2 graduate
Lawyer, Founder of Delitopia
The journey in the art of coaching with Barbara was fascinating, the awareness and her organization in a simple and understandable way were one of the greatest gifts of her program. Along with the initiation into Aristotelian virtues and ancient wisdom. Barbara is a Guide. Open, heartfelt, with wisdom and prudence, affectionate, enthusiastic, and incredibly intelligent emotionally, he takes you by the hand and wisely guides you to a very refined form of facilitation, which holistically transforms people. It teaches you that when you become a coach, you are constantly ready to expand, change and grow even in the sharpest turns of your life, transforming vulnerability into inspiration and strength. There is no return when you enter her universe, her VIP coaches confirm this dynamically.
You do not need to travel abroad in order to receive such a high level of knowledge
George Chatzivasilas, CSTP 3 graduate
Assets Marketer, Leadership & Business Coach
It gives you all the tools and skills one needs to practice Coaching. But the most important is that it does not stay in theory, the so many hours of practice supervised by credentialed, excellent coaches give you the confidence you need to feel ready for any client. The fact that Barbara has incorporated ancient Greek philosophy is an added value. I would like to thank Barbara Asimakopoulou for sharing her knowledge and experience but also to congratulate her because she managed a Greek program to be recognized by the ICF and to be equal to the international programs.
"Unique team of contributors"

My participation in the program "Coaching Skills & Tools in practice" of the unique Barbara Asimakopoulou is the most beautiful gift I have offered myself. From the first lesson, I saw an improvement in how I see and manage myself, my environment, my team, my co-workers, discovering balance, clearer aiming, encouragement-recognition, awareness, and fulfillment. A journey of discovery and evolution. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to establish their own values, stand out as a leader and enhance prosperity for the common good.
