Lena Arnera - Personal Coach
I grew up on a sailboat sailing in the Mediterranean and in Africa then between the Caribbean, France and Corsica. This is how my taste for adventure, discovery and sharing was born.
Following my studies in Management and Marketing, II became a marketing and communication consultant. Passionate about travel and curious to discover new cultures, I have worked in France, Canada, the West Indies, the United Kingdom and New Zealand.
My ambitions, however, were quickly transformed. I must admit that my fulfilment was stronger when present with my children and supporting my husband in his career than in the realisation of this great career that I had imagined for myself. So I was working on assignments, a way to get an existing adventure in the work industry without encroaching on my family life.
In 2009, my husband having a well-accomplished career and already practicing coaching naturally, developing my career as a certified coach seemed obvious to me. I trained in Sydney, Australia, with the organisation Results Coaching Systems – Neuroleadership Group (accredited by theInternational Coach Federation). This organisation provides coaching training on a brain-based approach and works closely with Harvard and UCLA neuroscience research laboratories. I immediately set up my practice in Wellington, New Zealand and specialized in individual coaching: professional coaching and life coaching. I have passionately been in the coaching industry since, and I have experience in working with a wide range of clients including senior managers, artists, leaders of multinational companies, doctors, authors, economists, young retirees, entrepreneurs, mums…
Back in France in 2011 with my husband and our 3 children, I decided to take action on what I have had in mind for a while: help the youngsters to build their own strong foundations through neuroscience and coaching. Therefore, I teach NeuroLeadership at university level (Bachelor and Master) and, I have developed a school program for teenagers. This program is taught in international schools and is articulated around 4 modules: neuroscience, study skills, personal development and leadership skills.
I have also published my first book in French "Mes aventures extraordinaires au centre du cerveau" ("Journey to the centre of the brain") for teenagers.
Passionate about hiking and nature, I have also developed an outdoor coaching program. This nature coaching or hike coaching is a real opportunity to work on personal development in connection with nature.
Neuroscience & Nature in Mind
My values are: family, respect, authenticity, adventure, growth and realisation.
My purpose in life: love, live with sweet intensity, be present and enjoy the adventure.
My purpose as a coach: provide a safe place to uncover, discover and fill with energy.
I loved my coaching sessions with Lena. From the first session, I had the feeling that we were connected & that our discussions will be constructive. It was a real pillar in achieving my goals & I'm very grateful for it. A very beautiful, caring person who inspires confidence. I am very happy that our paths crossed & I recommend her ++
