Good Managers manage, great managers coach

Through my experience with managers but also my experience with managing others I have identified that great managers coach. What do I mean by that is that the employee has a goal and ownership of what needs to be done and the manager is there to give guidance, support, challenge their thinking and encourage.

Here are 4 key things that great managers do differently:

  1. They are not telling, they are asking
  2. The match talent with challenges
  3. They are keeping people accountable and trust them to do their best
  4. They have total control of their emotions

Please let me know your thoughts and if you’d add anything else to this list. Also, share experiences that you have had with managers or by managing others.

How to develop my self-esteem/self-love?

The first element towards self-love is self-awareness. Check out my videos on self – awareness: Video 1 & Video 2. You can’t love something you don’t understand or you don’t know. Spending time with yourself and observing yourself to identify your strengths as well as your weaknesses. Accept and embrace your shortcomings and your dark side because we all have it as humans.

Now when developing self-love there are three determining factors that I’ve seen playing out throughout everyone’s life. Here is how we like ourselves more:

  1. By doing the right thing
  2. By raising our standards and follow through on our commitments
  3. By who we decide we are at our worse, most challenging times in our lifetime.

By consistently doing the right thing you like and admire yourself more. When you try to deceive, mislead or take revenge on other people -you hurt yourself more. That decreases your self-love.

Raising standards and follow through on your commitments is the sexier thing anyone can do. Whether that is committed to going to the gym three times per week for the next six months and actually do it. Or when you commit to saving 15% of your income every month in order to have an x amount by the end of the year. It really helps you think of yourself in high regard.

Finally, if any of you have reached rock bottom in your life or life has really tested you with challenges and difficulties you know what I mean. The person you decide you are at your worst will determine who you become.

Hope this helps you put a plan together and keep yourself accountable to see solid results in your career and life going forward. If you have a specific question on how to love yourself and not be taken advantage by other people get in touch by a message on my website here.

Love you all,


What does David Gandy & Gary Vaynerchuck have in common?

They don’t actually have much in common, other than the fact that I met them both last week on Thursday! On Wednesday and Thursday, I was at Retail Week Live which is an event organized by Ascential Group, the company I work for. David Gandy was interviewed as a Brand Ambassador for Wellman vitamins together with the CEO of the brand.

Following the end of the Retail Week Live I went to another event which was hosted by Gary Vaynerchuk the famous American/Belarusian hustler that is making some waves in the digital space and entrepreneurship. It was a pop-up shop nearby Spitalfields where he was selling his merchandise and books. Currently, I’m reading his latest book which is called Crushing it. Click here to order it online, if you have an online business its kinda of essential.

Also, what really made an impression on me is that he made sure that every single one that came to see him, had a meet & greet with him together with a selfie of course! See mine below!

That’s why I feel so lucky and blessed to be living in London because I get to experience things that I wouldn’t otherwise have the chance.. together with a few other examples that I didn’t talk about on this video.

Let me know if you like that type of content, I’m here to listen and create more of what you want.

Love you all,

The 5 love languages

The 5 love languages are:

  1. Words of affirmation
  2. Acts of service
  3. Receiving gifts
  4. Quality time
  5. Physical touch

We all speak all the love languages of course but in different priorities. If you or your partner feels unloved sometimes it might be because you have different priorities when it comes to giving and receiving love.

Ελληνική κρίση, η αποψή μου


[Για προσωπική συνεδρία μαζί μου στείλτε μου στο – επίσης επισκφτείτε την ιστοσελίδα μου για περισσότερες πληροφορίες]

Ελληνική κρίση η μεγαλύτερη στην ιστορία της ανθρωπότητας, με τόσο πολύ πόνο, δυσχέρεια και καταστροφή. Αλλά δεν θα μπω στη διαδικασία να αναλύσουμε το παρελθόν και τις ευθύνες. Είμαστε όλοι υπεύθυνοι για την κατάσταση της χώρας με τον άμεσο ή έμμεσο τρόπο. Όταν η κρίση φτάνει να επιρεάζει την τσέπη σου και τη δική μου είμαστε όλοι υπέυθυνοι και όλοι μαζί πρέπει να βρούμε λύσεις.

Εγώ βεβαίως δεν θα μιλήσω απο οικονομικής άποψης, θα το αφἠσω αυτό στον κ. Βαρουφάκη και τους άλλους οικονομολόγους το καμμάτι αυτό. Εγώ αυτό που θέλω να πω έχει να κάνει με τις πεποιθήσεις μας και την νοοτροποία που μας έφερε εδώ που μας έφερε. Υπάρχουν 3 πεποιθήσεις που πιστἐύω οτι πρέπει να αλλάξουν και να επανεξεταστούν στην ελληνική νοοτροπία. Είναι οι εξής:

-Να μἀθουμε να σεβόμαστε και να αγαπούμε τον εαυτό μας. Να σεβόμαστε τη δουλειά και τον κόπο μας. Και βεβαίως να διεκδηκούμε αυτά που μας ανήκουν χωρίς φόβο.

-Να μάθουμε να έχουμε μια μακρόπρόθεσμη οπτική των πραγμάτων. Να εξετάζουμε τον τρόπο ζωής μας, τις αποφάσεις που παἰρνουμε σήμερα και ποιες θα είναι οι επιπτώσεις τους 20, 50, 100 χρόνια απο σήμερα. Τείνουμε να βλέπουμε το τώρα και το άμεσο αύριο και να παίρνουμε αποφάσεις με συναισθηματισμό αντί να βάζουμε τη λογική και το σκεφτόμαστε την υστεροφημία και τις επιπτώσεις στις επόμενες γενεές.

-Να μάθουμε να έχουμε μια ισορροπημένη και υγειής σχέση με το χρήμα. Να μάθουμε να το σεβόμαστε και να το διαχειρηζόμαστε σωστά χωρίς να το φοβόμαστε ή να το μισούμε. Γενικότερα να επανεξετάσουμε τη σχέση μας με το χρήμα και να βάλουμε τις σωστές βάσεις.

Αυτές είναι οι σκἐψεις μου όσον αφορά τις γενικἐς πεποιθήσεις που θα πρέπει να επανεξετάσουμε για να χτίσουμε ένα καλύτερο μἐλλον για έμας και τα παιδιά μας.

Σας εύχομαι απο καρδίας καλή χρονιά, ευτυχισμένο το 2018, υγεία, ευτυχία και ευημερία σε εσάς και τις οικογένειες σας.

Με αγάπη,




Christmas left me feeling like..

Merry Christmas to all of you loving souls and your families. Hope this holiday season your hearts are overflowing with love, peace, and joy!

Christmas holidays is the best time for me to be myself and do what I love doing- reflecting on the year and learn from both my successes and my failures.

2017 has been a great year for me as I had the opportunity to share with you all my thoughts and feelings and hopefully challenge your beliefs to improve your quality of life. Going forward, however,r I’d like to share more of myself and my perspective. I know that university professors are usually presenting philosophy as rather a dry subject, but I have a very different point of view and I think that philosophy can be so much fun and help us all increase the quality of our life tremendously. So stay with me this year and we’ll ride this together.

On this video is me enjoying myself a little too much while I’m getting ready. It’s the reason why sometime I’m late and I feel guilty about it but I really enjoy dancing. Be it on my own, with friends, in the club.. it doesn’t matter literally everywhere I can dance. While drinking or while drinking pure water makes no difference to me I really enjoy expressing myself and my feelings through dancing!

I’d like this year to let you in my life and show you more of what it’s like to be me, you know already my Philosophical side and you are about to find out about the other sides of me like my dancing side for example..!

What’s your guilty pleasure that makes you being late in meetings?

Can’t wait to hear your stories,

Lots of love



On Intimacy

On my return from my trip to Malaysia I picked up a book by the Indian guru and spiritual teacher – Osho. The book is called Intimacy and you can order it on this link.

I loved this book and I highly recommend it if you are interested in understanding more about intimacy. Intimacy is something that most people crave because they feel that it will lead to fulfillment and joy – which is actually true.

Some people think of intimacy in sexual terms but people can be intimate without having any sexual contact what so ever. To describe intimacy is to communicate your emotional and spiritual needs to your romantic partner. Is about sharing your inner world, that includes everything you are proud of and everything that you aren’t so happy with. Intimacy requires being emotionally and spiritually naked with another person, which can be quite scary for most people.

The first requirement for intimacy is to be truly and completely honest with ourselves and our partner. It requires a level of authenticity that most people don’t have in their daily life. As most people wear a mask that covers their true colors.

Intimacy is all about letting someone see everything that is in you. Your strengths, talents, aspirations as well as your weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and fears. This is where lots of people fail to attain intimacy because they aren’t willing to show every part of themselves. However, intimacy can’t be involved unless there are trust and integrity between the partners.

If you have specific questions with regards to intimacy that you’d like to address please get in touch with me and I’ll answer directly.

Lots of love,


Working with feminine & masculine energy


Please watch the video and examine yourself in terms of the energy you operate while at work. You can never compete equally when you don’t utilize your full potential. Ladies, you can’t fulfill your full potential by trying to be something you are not.

  • Is it masculine or feminine energy you express the most at work?
  • Is it process/experience oriented or achieving the end result energy you operate from?
  • Can you communicate standards by operating from a feminine energy?
  • Can you earn respect in at work by operating from a feminine energy?

Consider the above questions and decide for yourself what works for you and how you can be more of yourself and still achieve your professional goals in the most authentic way possible.

Let me know your thoughts and if you’d like guidance on implementing those changes in your life. Always happy to help.

Lot’s of Love
