Passionate about peak performance, personal development and wellbeing, I work with organisations and individuals on driving these forward through mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and compassionate leadership.
Prior to launching my own business, I worked for Google, managing the relationships for some of the largest Consumer Product Companies in the Middle East. While at Google I was actively involved in the personal development and wellbeing of my colleagues by being an internal coach and a certified teacher of Search Inside Yourself ®, a Google created, two-day emotional intelligence program based on mindfulness and neuroscience.
I hold a BSc and MSc in Management and Marketing and an Advanced Diploma in Personal, Leadership and Executive Coaching. I'm also an Associate Certified Coach accredited by the International Coach Federation (ICF) and a Search Inside Yourself Certified Teacher, trained by SIYLI.
I enjoy traveling and learning about new cultures; I've lived in 6 different countries in Europe and the Middle East and traveled to more than 40. Currently, I live between Cyprus and Dubai. My other interests include sports, reading and contemplative practices.
1 to 1 coaching
All coaching engagements start with a free coaching conversation in which we assess your needs, discuss what you are hoping to achieve and check whether we are a good fit working together. We can have the session online via Zoom or Skype, or in person if you are based in Dubai.
If we decide to start working together, we will agree on a number of sessions and their frequency customised to your schedule and needs.
You are the owner of the coaching agenda. I usually help clients:
Grow as a person and as a professional
Clarify what they want in their life and career
Plan how to get there
Challenge limiting beliefs and ideas
Improve self-care & balance
Work on confidence and handle the inner critic
Find the courage to take risks
my coaching style
This is about YOU. We are working together to achieve your goals.
I'm here to listen to you, with the fullest of my attention and without any judgment, in a safe and confidential space.
I'll ask you questions, help you explore a topic from different viewpoints, reveal blindspots and challenge limiting ideas and beliefs.
I'll empower and support you, as well as kindly hold you accountable, in order to help you achieve the changes you want to see in your life.
It may be challenging and uncomfortable at times, but this is where growth happens and I am here to guide you through it.
We are on the same team in this journey and I want you to succeed.

What MY clients say
Key Account Manager at Google
"The time Lefteris has been coaching me changed the way I approached my life. His perspective on matters (small or big) gave me the chance to see my (daily) challenges from a different angle. He not only encouraged me to focus on the important things in my life and tackle the ones that I am not happy with, but also showed me techniques on how to deal with difficult situations. Lefteris is an inspiring and open-minded coach, who approaches his passion to support others in the most wholehearted way."
