Daniela Ferdeghini: Consultant, ICF ACC Executive & Corporate Coach, DOLQuest Expert, Trainer & Ecotuner
Daniela’s dimension is the journey and she has always been on the road, both in external, “material” life and in the interior life. Starting in 2000 she worked in the field of Human Resources in a corporate environment for 15 years, dealing with selection and training, accompanying people from their recruitment and throughout their development. Thanks to this journey, she faced more and more issues associated with the well-being of the person within their context, interpersonal relationships and the connection between self and others. At the height of this corporate trajectory she felt the need and the desire to combine everything she had achieved in her professional life with a love for nature, hence the meeting with Ecopsychology. She had specialized in the field of coaching in the corporate environment and succeeded in combining these two life experiences by creating and developing the "Green Coaching" program (currently offered by the Italian school “Ecopsiché”) and the "Verdemeta" brand. Currently she works as a consultant, trainer and executive coach to help people and organizations maximize their potential and find their systemic balance.
