Executive coaching

Dentons - Patrycjusz Zamorski, Europe Director of Talent
“Andrea is a truly gifted and inspiring coach who knows how to get to the core of what her clients need. Being a coach myself and having worked with many highly qualified coaches in an international corporate environment over the past twenty years, I understand the importance of building a rapport with clients so that they can explore their goals and find solutions to problems. Andrea delivered all of this for me using a unique blend of coaching models and subtle techniques, some of which involve accessing the subconscious mind. She identified a number of key areas that are drivers for my behaviour, and we carefully explored these one by one. I am very grateful to Andrea for helping me unlock these areas and for giving me the practical tools to achieve tangible results. In my role as Europe Director of Talent, I have also seen how Andrea has helped my colleagues work more successfully in a demanding and competitive environment. It has been a privilege to work with Andrea, and I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who is looking to reconnect with their true self and live a fuller and more rewarding life.”

Life Balance Coaching

PhDr. Magdalena Nišponská Ph.D. - University teacher, psychologist
Andrea Považanová is my long-term colleague. I always felt a big respect to he professional overview and very precise, responsible and most importantly human approach to people who she is working with. Together, we have spent a lot of time having beautiful and inspiring debates regarding the methods she uses in her job – mostly about processes which deduces a man from his part, possible blocks or traumas and eventually orient him to inner relation to his life, people around him and a job. In her personal field of work, the topics of recourses and facilitation of personal growth are highlighted – the directions which are lately in the centre of research in organizational and work psychology and coaching as practically oriented growth support. Andrea Považanová is long-term interested in releasing the human potential in direction to his positive self-realization, autonomy feeling and embedding in relationships. The methods, that she commands precisely and in depth, she theoretically and practically integrates according to client’s needs. In a client’s seat I always felt in a safe, non-judgemental environmenr of acceptation and deep human interest. I deeply value her professional opinions, advices and overview, that are always very helpful.
Mgr. Nina Vysloužilova - Senior HR Manager Central and Eastern Europe PHILIPS
What is happiness? What is satisfaction of a game, whether we feel the game or career or even our life? Andrea interested me in first minutes of our meeting and her value deepens in my eyes every day. A bright human being, whose optimism, determinacy and balance show me, that whatever the external influences are, you can still have an inner joy. She is my guide to re-finding of my inner piece, revealing own value, facilitating personal potential and fulfilling my dreams, to which she gives me courage and breaks the boundaries of limitation. The excitement of the game is increasing and I am looking forward to our every meeting, which always puts me forward in my work and personal life. Not that long time ago, I used to ask „What do I want to“, now I ask „What makes me happy“.

Petr Pětioký - Construction and Operation Manager VOLTCOM
Andrea, you gave my life a completely new and amazing direction, which sent me to a real understanding of things and events happening amongst us. Meeting with you was like a meeting with a person I was looking for my entire life. My whole life I thought that it is only possible to have the real inner peace somewhere on the other side of the world, hidden in the mountains next to tibet´s songs. Because I do not believe in coincidences, I am sure, that a coincidence is just an inaccurately understood managed even, and I know that also meeting with you was not a coincidence. After several meetings with you and your Workshops, I have started to fully realize that many things I could not do before, but I think more likely I did not want to see them before.. I have hidden these experiences somewhere deep in myself and I thought they will disappear. I don´t care, whether they were either work or private life matters, they have never disappeared and they were still (just unknowingly) influencing my life (mostly negatively). After meeting with your I have started to see things much clearly and in completely different contexts than ever before. If I should describe with one sentence which essential thing has changed my meeting with you, is certainly the amazing and indescribable balance in every aspect of my life. There are moments, when I am able to disappear in the present moment and to flow through it as long as I allow myself. And when I get back, I see the world with different eyes with bigger humility and better understanding. Andrea, You are a wonderful person, I feel very grateful for having the chance to meet you.
