The assists of the great champions and the Emotional Intelligence
Formula1 drivers like Michael Schumacher or Alain Prost and tennis players of the caliber of Novak Đoković perform incredible performances, giving each of us ideas for their individual growth. Their ability to use emotions led me to study Emotional Intelligence, to be a practitioner of it and, thanks to training and study, to be able to teach it to others.
The attitude of athletes, their ability to live in the present, the strength to respond to change, are teachings that each of us can learn and use in daily life. Concepts such as fear, judgment and guilt arise from the passive side of thinking and fail when athletes focus on their performance.
In their activity, during the race there is courage, determination, the desire to give the maximum.
My career path.
Today I am an emotional speaker, executive coach and corporate trainer. To get here and speak at events, meetings and seminars, the journey was long and the opportunities to learn and grow countless.
I was born in Ferrara (Italy) and I graduated in Mechanical Engineering, automotive specialization, at the Polytechnic of Turin.
I joined Formula 1 and Ferrari in 1988, with the role of Race Engineer. My journey through the ranks of the prancing horse ended in 2009 as executive coordinator of performance development. Together with the Maranello team, I won 8 Formula 1 World Constructors Championships and 6 Formula 1 World Drivers Championships as Technical Manager of Test Activities.
The contact with prestigious drivers like A.Prost to M. Schumacher, N. Mansell, G. Berger, R. Barrichello, E. Irvine, K. Raikkonen, F. Massa and J. Alesi made my sporting experience unique under the technical and human point of view.
Very early in my career the need for change grew in me and so from the role of engineer I passed to that of manager and leader. Specialization courses in resource management areas like Master in NLP, Master in Executive Coaching. Today I am an Executive Coach Accredited with PCC at the ICF (International Coaching Federation) and accredited with Sei Development and Vital Sign with SixSeconds, a leading Emotional Intelligence training company, of which I am also a partner.
Attracted by the mind and its facets, I focused my journey on the knowledge of the human mind, the unconscious and spirituality. Coaching has favored the development of alternative mental training models focused on excellence in performance and change.
