Simone Cortellaro

Clarity. Courage. Satisfaction

 

Do you know those sentences that begin with “actually…”? Actually, I wanted to; actually, I can; actually, I should… many people’s lives are full of sentences that begin with “actually”, not to mention their thoughts and their feelings. Where the “actually” is, there is the way for clarity and courage for the smaller and greater changes in life. The resulting satisfaction out of these changes is exactly what I wish for you.

What makes Mrs. Cortellaro stand out is that, along with her consulting expertise, she also brings extraordinary practical project experience, giving the discussions a very high-quality depth, as she is able to apply her knowledge well to the situation at hand. Mrs. Cortellaro doesn’t give one the feeling of being in a conventional client-consultant discussion, because one can talk about one’s challenges with her very openly and intimately, and then it is all sorted and tackled accordingly.

Sometimes life doesn’t run in a straight line, and the signs point to change. Mrs. Cortellaro was simply a fantastic support for me during this process, both substantively and emotionally. Step by step we discovered my professional competences, and then went step by step through the searching and application process. The clear preparation for the talks and high motivation gave me the boost to take these best possible results and find a new balance of work and life. I learned a lot about many things, including about myself. For this I am very grateful.

Mrs. Cortellaro is discriminating in her analysis and astute in her perceptions. She gave me wise and engaging advice— with success. It is a great help to have her at one’s side, as a consultant and as a person, during a professional transformation.

Mrs. Cortellaro knows how the business world operates. Moreover, I profited from Mrs. Cortellaro’s practical experience at all times. There was no subject for which she didn’t have one or several ideas on how it could and should be carried out, which in turned shortened many of my thought processes and brought them quickly to implementation. This was, especially in our company’s restructuring phase, very important for the success of the entire team.

I learned more in three hours with Mrs. Cortellaro than I did in 3 years at college, and, I fear, than I have learned during my entire life. I have never before been able to speak so directly with someone about my concerns and questions, and to learn so much about ideas, inspiration and experience, for my life and business.

I particularly liked her combination of clear know-how and her heart being in the right place. This gave me guidance in a special way, and I now have a clear idea of my leadership personality and my effect on others.
