HER WORK FOCUSES ON THE PROFOUND IMPACT OF OUR CHOICES, MOMENT BY MOMENT

Dealing with change requires a mindful, systemic and integral approach. 

For this reason Ilaria does not bring complex methodologies to the table. Instead, she focuses on the fundamentals of human change and how change happens in complex systems: integrating all the dimensions, their interactions and interconnections.

She is helping individuals, leaders and their teams find their purpose and drive long-lasting, sustainable change in their lives, businesses and across their organizations by encouraging their creative, transformational, and systems thinking. 

Her interest lies in understanding how the choices we make moment by moment, individually and collectively change our future.

Much of her current work focuses on understanding the profound impact of these choices, with an emphasis on exploring meaningful and mindful ways of thinking, creating, acting, and making new good things happen.
