We help managers to become conscious, agile and influential leaders in today’s uncertain and rapidly changing world. Through our pragmatic programs, they learn to interact more constructively with people across hierarchies, functions and cultures and achieve greater goals together with them.
Thanks to over 25 years of experience working in and with the multinational corporate world, Myriam understands the complex challenges that leaders and organizations face at practical, emotional, leadership, and business levels in today’s uncertain and rapidly changing times. She has a pragmatic, systemic approach and believes that in order to thrive and build long-term success, companies need to evolve their leadership capabilities and to activate people’s hidden potential. For this purpose, Myriam created the CARx Method and the Leadership Activation Journey (LAJ). As a result, leaders increase their agility, strategic vision and ability to bring out the best in people across hierarchies, functions and cultures, thus transforming their organization.

I completed an amazing 6-month coaching program with Myriam. What was really important, I realised that being a good leader is a "technique" that can be learned. We often believe that our way is the only way to do things. I learnt that some attitudes may be appropriate in one situation, and totally wrong (dysfunctional) in another one. Myriam also helped me to identify the root values and cultural layers of managers coming from different countries. So, learning how to deal with managers who are "fact-driven" and with managers who have a more high-level view is an incredible help to be more successful.
The LAJ program has been a compelling experience. It enriched me by giving me EFFECTIVE tools to deal with everyday problems. I began the journey because I wanted to find a serene way to manage my reports with whom I often came into conflict and because I saw myself limited in my ability to influence my superiors. I discovered a more strategic way of working that starts from a connection with myself and with others, which seeks the relationship before the action and creates motivation in the people that I coordinate. I started to achieve success thanks to the collaboration with others and the determination that was born both by clearly defining a goal and by keeping it "alive" over time and by addressing difficulties with a focus on the solution. In my work and my life, I have seen an increase in my awareness of how I can make a difference in the situations in which I find myself.
I thank Myriam for her enormous professionalism and humanity. As part of the Coaching path we did together, Myriam managed to make me understand how important and fundamental it is at work and in everyday life to know how to connect with people. It also made me understand how dedicating time to 'Connection' on a daily basis is not a waste of time but provides us with the basis for exponential growth. #connection #activation. Thank you.
I am astonished and enthusiastic. I didn't think that this program would bring such results. The projects they [the participants] shared all have key elements in common: listening, awareness, trust, collaboration, courage and humanity.
This program has awakened the souls and has greatly improved the collaboration among the departments, which was almost non-existent before.
Thanks to this journey I have experienced what it means to CHANGE. I have become aware that change is possible and it begins within us. We have a big power in our hands, which is to transform and change situations.
I was in a crucial moment of a change-management process of my European sales team. In a very short time with Myriam Callegarin I understood how my communication to my team was preventing the whole change-management process to move forward. The result was extremely good and I could see the change in the opening of my team and the first successes were visible within a few months.
Myriam manages to catch your attention by dealing with complex communication topics with ease and competence.
Myriam has an exceptional expertise in Cross-Cultural Communication. Her positive and enthusiastic attitude as a coach will definitely help any manager overcome multicultural communication issues which is usually one of the main root causes of failure. Thank you again, Myriam, for your support in giving me the right method to manage new countries and new cultures.
I received enormous benefits at professional and personal levels by working with Myriam during the Leadership Development Center for my team and me and feel the need to thank her for all the support she provided. Myriam delivered her work donating us highly professional moments with style and elegance. For sure it's been one of the best performances I have experienced over the past years and I am honored that I met her. Thanks again.
