"Our dreams and desires change the world"

Karl Popper

TheCreativitySpace was born from an intuition and from my own experience about coaching as a path of creative integration and personal development.

A coaching session is a temporal and relational space promoting new awareness, where fresh ideas, solutions and images take shape and great behavioral transformations or new insights come true; stunning evolutions of mind, heart and soul follow one another until they coalesce into an expression of amazing humanity.

I hope the virtual space this website is offering may become an opportunity for practitioners to cooperate and creatively integrate with each other. I believe the union of different minds, energies, skills and approach can pave the way for value and innovation and I have founded my professional expertise on the same principle: implementing and integrating my own professional and human abilities to serve other people and the art of coaching itself.

WHO I AM

This is my story
The story of a traveler, with a suitcase full of experiences and a lot of space for more findings

 

Federica Tozzi

My first big journey, in 2001, brought me to the US, as I left home to move to a new world, promising independence and responsibility as well as personal and professional growth.

I worked and lived side by side with people of tremendous human and professional stature, who enriched my life and whose memory I still treasure in my heart. For several years, I investigated eating disorders, looking for the origin of this condition painfully affecting both sufferers and their families.

In 2004, I moved back to Italy and to Verona, where I investigated psychiatric disorders, aiming at identifying their genetic causes. Meanwhile, I was also working on developing new drugs and assessing their effects on human beings. It was during this research, carried out with passion within business companies, that I became aware of the strategic interpersonal aspects alongside marketing and business issues.

A few years ago I set out on a new journey, which started during a time of great personal and professional suffering, when I felt a strong urge for change and rebirth. I approached coaching for myself; I used it, I experienced it and now I am narrating and offering it.

I completed a vocational training course at the Future Coaching Academy, where I graduated as a professional coach for individual and team work. I am an ICF Associate Certified Coach.

As a researcher, I published over sixty papers and cooperated with leading international teams.
As a coach, I have started reaping very satisfactory results.
As a researcher on coaching, I am developing and testing new ideas, innovative models and applications.

My personal and professional life keeps being a traveler’s life, prompted by eagerness to learn, a love for surprise and an openness to all that’s new. As well as deep gratitude for all I have collected in my suitcase already.

MY APPROACH

Being a coach: listening, being open and welcoming

 

My educational background was rich in technical know-how and in diverse life and work experiences, which later blended together and, through a path of creative integration, inspired the techniques I am currently applying, as well as my own coaching style.

My approach is primarily founded on listening, being open and WELCOMING.

Work

I believe work can and should be enjoyable. I wish to contribute enhancing a work culture where the individual person is center stage, where performance and productivity blend with passion and ongoing growth.

Ethics

I believe any professional worker should respect other people and abide by an ethical code. I pursue my job with a professional approach and deep-rooted sense of ethics.

Life-long learning

I believe ongoing learning is paramount. Building new knowledge is enriching and gives you freedom of choice. My passion for this work is an expression of my thirst for new acquisitions.

Cooperation

I believe cooperation and sharing make life and work more attractive and grant better, sometimes unexpected, results. Meeting other people and embracing their diversity is a source of unending enrichment.

Opportunities

I believe a coaching path is an opportunity to be with yourself, understand what you are really looking for, become stronger and live your life with awareness. Ultimately, to choose.

Motivation

I believe motivation – aiming at what we really desire – is the key factor in achieving good results. Deliberate choices guide us straight to the goals we are pursuing, however ambitious they may be.

Excellence

I believe we should always give our best, especially when offering services to others. In my profession I aim at excellence, with an awareness of the goals I can achieve.

COACHING

Change through partnership, technique, awareness and listening

logo_acc

Coaching, as defined by the International Coach Federation, is a partnership with clients, promoting reflection through a creative path and inspiring them to enhance their own personal and professional potential. (https://www.icf-italia.org/cose-il-coaching/)

Thanks to coaching, I have learnt to listen to myself and have become more aware of my own emotions and desires. Understanding the importance of making conscious choices proved to be my most valuable achievement.

Poor self-awareness may trigger an automatic reaction and the feeling of having to comply with what is going on. Self-awareness and the ability to see what some situations can offer make us free. Free to choose. A coaching program paves the way for open-mindedness and helps you acquire tools you can implement whenever needed. It can also be of help in facing critical junctures or unblocking situations that prevent you taking important steps.

A coach never tells you what to do nor does he/she suggest solutions. A coach prompts you to find your own answers and your own way. This is one of its major strengths: empowering people to trust their own ability and become stronger.

A coaching session as a partner dance:

Two dancers are on the dance floor. Lights go off, silence falls, and a spotlight shines on them. In a split second, before music starts, connection happens between them. Great technique is crucial to a beautiful dance, but that’s not all. Self-awareness, full presence, attentive listening, trust and mutual confidence, and all that dancers give freely out of themselves. Opening up and giving oneself to a harmonious connection can create instant enthralling beauty.
