My head was in full command at all times: control, reason, and power. These are the strategies that helped make me effective and successful. I then discovered, in the course of my work of Personal Mastery, that I had emotions, and started using them as a source of information. Over time, the acceptance of having emotions and my willingness to share them, helped me to connect with others more easily, especially when the situation was challenging and there was reason for conflict and contradiction between us.

The Leadership and Personal Mastery seminar was an experience of deep connection and sharing where I learned to recognize my mental resistance patterns and to take responsibility for unhinging them. A constant exercise of Presence where I learned to put the 'state of surrender' into practice, abandoning the need for judgment and helping to keep a fluid mind, break our (unconscious) rigidity and push ourselves out of our comfort zone. This course has helped me to reconnect with my primary life energy and to place it at the service of a higher good. I come away with the clarity that I have been looking for, for a long time.
I recommend this self-discovery journey to anyone aiming to create a context of humanity within their organization. In the age of upheaval, top-down power structures and rule-choked management systems are a liability. They crush creativity and stifle initiative. As leaders, employees, investors, and citizens, we deserve better. We need organizations that are bold, entrepreneurial, and as nimble as change itself.Claudia Pacifici Sitel Group - Process Improvement Manager
Hello to everyone,
I would like to offer you my heartfelt thanks for the course completed on Saturday.
It was an intense journey within myself, thanks to your guidance and the experiences of the other participants.
The methodology has true value and your personal commitment was complete.
I have no doubt about the effectiveness of your company’s approach.
The “discoveries” made were beyond my expectations and open the way to surprising and fertile directions.
Thanks again.Matteo Stiatti Rain SpA - Executive Vice President
It was like going on a long voyage, after which everything changes. I see the world in a different perspective now.
I became aware of COCREA thanks to a dear friend who had attended an online seminar and was enthusiastic about it. She shared her enthusiasm with me and told me how the experience had had a profound effect on her. She had recommended it to me as she was aware that I was going through a difficult moment. One of those moments in which thoughts run one after the other in a non-stop loop, without producing anything of worth. And so, I threw myself into the experience, which I will now tell you about. It was like going on a long voyage, after which everything changes. I see the world in a different perspective now.
Of course, if it hadn’t been for the great trust I have in my friend, I may have hesitated due to the legitimate scepticism one has for spending money on an online course.
I am indeed delighted and consider this the best gift I could have given to myself this year.
The level of participation was 100% for all participants, even those who showed resistance at the start. A supportive and affectionate group was formed. The coaches are the most professional facilitators I have could have imagined to accompany us on this difficult voyage, a voyage within ourselves.
A scene from The Never Ending Story comes to my mind: Atreyu has to cross through a mirror that shows the viewer's true self. Most would flee in fright. Atreyu made it through. Well, thanks to COCREA, we went through that mirror together!Tiziana Pro Sandvik Coromant - Global Product Manager
Awareness is the key word in achieving our goals. The Personal Mastery seminar and Team in Vision workshop supported us in developing our team and our business. In these four years - despite the difficulties of the economic downturn - our productivity has grown by 40% and the turnover has doubled every year.Federico de Nardis SSA for GroupM - CEO
For me, COCREA has been a profound and exciting interior journey that, breaking the veil of routine and fear, has brought me into contact with the most creative part of myself. COCREA showed me how to build my life consciously and how to take back my responsibility in doing so.Maura Gallotti Moleskine - HR Director
Joy has been the most powerful outcome. Joy in finding myself in a worldclass top performing group, which nevertheless succeeds to do more and more, making words like "commitment", "agreement" and "goal" into realities. Joy in the discovery of not being alone. Joy in the desire, energy, determination and courage of the challenge, which transforms arrival points into starting ones. Joy is contagious, it provides focus to contexts, allowing us to look at the future with true leadership and the ability to really create what we wantPietro Polidori IDT EME - Vice President & Managing Director
If you want to challenge your status quo, live a life you always wanted to, try things that scared you, make one step forward towards your desires you are even afraid to think about loudly, stand on the side of joy and life, find out what motivates your actions, thoughts, never again judge yourself and what is most important, start loving yourself, COCREA personal mastery sessions is the one you need.
It helped me to get out of my comfort zone, act toward my dreams, set clear goals and constantly ask myself what I really need. Finally, it gave me confidence and made me responsible of my actions so that I do not need to blame neither success nor failure on others. It is like you are empowered and thrilled to move the mountains.Gvantsa Mirziashvili
For me COCREA has been a new initiatory process. I quote Rumi: “Out beyond the ideas of rightdoing and wrongdoing there is a field; I will meet you there” (Rumi)Tania Gianesin Moleskine Foundation - Co-founder - R&D Director
I attended a Cocrea workshop because I felt the need for new tools and a guide to overcome some difficulties that I was encountering in staying focused on my goals. Thanks to Cocrea I discovered not only a method that helps me support my change, recognizing above all the elements of resistance, but also the importance of being in touch with my emotions, of seeing those emotions which work for or against our evolution.Alessandro Saccon Amazon Italia - Head of consumer PR
To speak from the bottom of my heart, me before and me after COCREA – are two different people. No, I haven’t radically changed the way I feel, or the way I talk or look, but I have changed attitude to many things and as a result, my behavior – I learned how to put on some calm glasses, and look at things from different perspectives, angles and eyes of people around me.
An amazing 6-day journey of self-exploration, warm atmosphere, caring coaches and emotionally charged sessions helped me realize my strengths and weaknesses, accept them and, what’s more important accept myself.
Today, after 8 months, I can say that COCREA gave me a big push towards self-realization, which works for me in smallest and biggest challenges of my life. Now I can analyze my feelings, understand my behaviors, help myself in my biggest struggles and help others in theirs. I am less vulnerable, more open and flexible, which opens new doors and possibilities for me.
I would recommend COCREA to everyone, who wants to experience a deep dive into his/her inner self, which results in getting rid of some useless habits, becoming a better team player, family member, leader, friend or colleague.Nino Chikovani Solo Bank - Head of Solo Lifestyle
In the COCREA Personal Mastery workshop I gained the ability to recognise emotions and to engage in a particular “area” of awareness that requires the taking of responsibility for what I want to create for myself and others. Together with the facilitators and participants, I found that area of creativity and of sharing. The tools acquired during the course of the seminar are helping me daily in my challenge to successfully overcome obstacles and achieve my goals with awareness.Marco Scurati Giornalista, communications advisor for entrepreneurs and SME
The Cocrea workshop is pure intensity; it is an occasion for profound inner research that leads you to confront your greatest fears. You encounter deeply sensitive people through a variety of experiences, in which the moments dedicated to sharing are extremely enriching. I met the Cocrea consultants at a time of great anger in which I always faced the problems in a "war" mode and always with the aim of winning at any cost. Cocrea for me meant a new beginning, without throwing away who I was but allowing me to see myself in a new way and above all, with greater lucidity and ability to evaluate the outside world. This has greatly improved my work, my performance and I also appreciate the improvements that have occurred in both my social and family contexts.Roberto Teragni SEW Eurodrive
Beauty is important and happiness is even more important: you create something beautiful only if you are happy. Thanks to the Personal Mastery workshop, I learned that, if there is no clarity and awareness of what a state of well-being means, it is very difficult to induce a state of well-being in other people, through the products we make.Barbara Cimmino Inticom spa - Head of Product
I discovered that being conscious of and accepting my weaknesses is priceless. I’ve realized just how much energy I’ve spent hiding them up until now. Managing ourselves and our emotions is a true formula for being happy, reaching new goals and accepting changes. When you meet someone who helps you make this discovery you acquire an enormous awareness and strength. My “someone” has been COCREA.Alessandro Ovan DAZN Italy - Director of Media
Tatiana Guarini Mondadori Libri - Head of Consumer & Digital Marketing
The work I’ve done based on the Cocrea methodology has allowed me to see the coexistence two life guidance systems. In every human being, without exception, therefore as well as in myself: a conscious one, in which I express my creativity and my goals and use my resources and qualities, and an unconscious one where I am at the mercy of my prejudices, my thought patterns, my deepest fears. The second, which is called Ego, almost always has the best over the first and constantly sabotages me, causing me to forget, procrastinate, quit and abandon what is important to me and what I want to reach the most. It is a state in which I find myself at the mercy of events.Tea Raggi
The Leadership and Personal Mastery workshop allowed me to acquire a greater awareness of both myself and of the offensive and defense mechanisms that often complicate our existence and our relationship with others.
My experience was very positive because I was able to acquire tools and knowledge about my behavioral functioning mechanisms that if known before would have allowed me to face life in a more positive way. Being in contact with one's emotions is not an easy task, but the journey towards oneself certainly compensates the effort needed to "reach" oneself.Franco Zanella SEW Eurodrive - Innovation Technology Manager Functional Safety Coordinator
I used to pass over and above all situations. I always stood up, even after fatal accidents, because I felt invincible, convinced that I could manage everything and find solutions for everything. COCREA taught me to pause, to be aware of emotions, to allow myself to feel the pain of my vulnerability and to make responsible choices. Discovering that only by opening the heart does responsibility develop and that by welcoming obstacles as new growth opportunities.Margherita Pogliani Journalist & digital consultant
Wonderful, cathartic, inspirational. I always talk about this as a happy child would, exclaiming: look at this! and wants to share something beautiful with others. It helped me discover the automatic mechanisms which unconsciously directed my choices, and which, despite my achievements, gave me a feeling of dissatisfaction.Fabio Pisi Vitagliano Independent coach and facilitator
