I am a an executive coach and leadership development facilitator. In 2011 I founded Mind Learners, as a metaphor for the paramount role of self-awareness in any process of personal or professional development and have been curating an increasing community of transformational coaches ever since. Over the years, I have been lucky to work with thousands of leaders in many organisations and different countries and have witnessed some truly inspiring journeys of personal transformation. I am perpetually amazed at people’s resourcefulness and capacity for change. This only reinforces my deeply held belief that, by being more aware of ourselves, we can actually become not just happier, but also more responsible, more caring of others, more conscious of our impact in the world and more capable of actively choosing to make that impact a positive one. Conscious leaders build businesses that are not only profitable, but also ethical and sustainable, businesses that not only grow, but also nurture the wellbeing of their employees and become forces for good in the communities they touch. I am convinced that supporting people on the path to higher consciousness is a great way to spend one’s life, or at least a great way to spend mine. I am a graduate of the Executive Masters Degree in Positive Leadership and Strategy (EXMPLS) from Instituto Empresa (IE) University in Spain and in 2019 I moved to Queensland, Australia, to pursue a PhD focusing on transformational learning. It is the next step in answering the core question that has been following me since the beginning of my career as a facilitator: How can we, through adult education, help people develop their wisdom, not just their knowledge? In 2015 I created the Mind Learners Transformational Coaching Program as a way of guiding leaders through a personal journey of self-discovery, self-challenge and change, while also equipping them with the tools of professional coaching, which they can then take further into their companies and teams to create a sustainable positive impact. We now have over 100 graduates in Romania, many of whom have gone on to create transformational projects in their teams and companies. In 2019 we are hosting the first cohort of the program in Australia. Beyond coaching, I am an avid reader, I blog about life, books and self-awareness at www.alisanagnostakis.com and you also can find me on Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin.
