"Just when I quit my job at an innovation unit at a large corporation to first do freelance consulting and then start a business I met Mounira and Angel. Since then we have gone on a continuous development journey in the form of multiple 1:1 coachings and workshops, which helped me go through important transitions and make the right decisions. I can now say that I am closer to my dream then I ever was and gained capabilities I didn’t know existed before. I can highly recommend every individual and business to engage in this kind of work. Thank you Mounira and Angel for doing this work!"
Clemens GammerProduct Manager & Entrepreneur
"Two years after attending the Search Inside Yourself training with Mounira and Angel, I can clearly see the tremendous impacts of it - both in my personal and professional life. They guide you through deep reflection that helped me to understand my purpose and the core assets of emotional intelligence in business organizations. Today, I feel more authentic and empowered to create spaces and share my mindfulness practice with peers. Working with Mounira and Angel is incredibly inspiring - and just so much fun."
Friederike KlöcknerExecutive Assistant to the Board Member at ŠKODA AUTO
"I attended the “Search Inside Yourself” training and I am happy to say that no training has ever led to so much positive change in my life. My biggest takeaway was the insights offered on what really motivates me in my private and professional life, and which changes I have to make in order to do more of what I love. This is a topic that not only resonates with me, but with a lot of people who are looking for guidance in this fast changing and uncertain world."

    Program DESIGN

    The Search Inside Yourself approach is built around four key disciplines:

    Emotional Intelligence

    Workplace studies show that having strong emotional competencies predict employee performance, leadership effectiveness, and wellbeing.


    Research shows that mindfulness is a foundational skill that can help in your personal growth, particularly in self-awareness, self-management, and emotional skills.


    Scientific research indicates that how we direct our attention determines the mental habits we form, the emotions we develop, and the results we experience.


    Leadership skills such as decision making, communicating effectively, and inspiring trust are enhanced through practices in mindfulness and emotional intelligence.
