Let's Cultivate Lightness

Posted by Hannah Massarella on Jun 14, 2017 7:00:59 AM

Sometimes, life can feel heavy. The heaviness can be particularly evident if we are working in challenging environments or with challenging content. I remember when I used to work in the charity sector supporting women who had experienced some form of violence,  I’d take that heavy feeling home with me. The heaviness seemed to seep into all areas of my life. I’d try and run it off, or drink it off, but it followed me around and eventually took it’s toll and I felt I had to leave the sector.

You Can't Lead Without Self-Development

Posted by Hannah Massarella on Feb 22, 2017 8:00:49 AM

I believe every human is a potential leader. Taking ownership of who you are and how you show up to your life every day is an act of leadership. By owning your story and your journey, you are leading others, inspiring them to do the same, and showing them that being in the driving seat of your life is possible.

Five Tips to Maintain Authenticity, Personal Fulfillment & Joy

Posted by Hannah Massarella on Nov 30, 2016 11:50:49 AM

As a CPCC I spread the message that self-development is a responsibility, not a luxury. I advocate making a positive difference in the world, by prioritizing your own self-care and self-discovery journey. I think real change happens in the world when people are being authentic, and are honoring their values even when the terrain is unknown and dark. Most often that authenticity and value alignment comes from many months, or years even of personal work.

Leading From Within in the Charity Sector

Posted by Hannah Massarella on Nov 2, 2016 8:52:06 AM

I trained to be a Co-Active coach four and a half years ago. Before that I worked with women who had survived domestic abuse. I worked in that capacity for four years, hearing stories, supporting and advocating as best I could. Until I burnt out and stopped being able to do my job. Luckily, as the universe would have it, I got made redundant at the same time as I realized my health was on the decline. The stress of the job was manifesting as lower back pain - no emotion leading into intense emotion with no obvious source. My lack of passion about the world manifested as feelings of depression and lethargy.

I was lucky enough to attend TedX Brighton last Friday. I eagerly absorbed eighteen presentations from experts in psychology, art, music, tech, poetry, entrepreneurialism, health, journalism and most notably for me, international development.

Stepping Outside of The Bubble

Posted by Hannah Massarella on Oct 20, 2015 8:00:10 AM

Since starting the coaching journey three years ago I’ve found myself increasingly surrounded by people open to exploring their own journey. I live in an incredibly liberal city in the UK, I base myself in a creative mecca of a building and tend to hang out with coaches and development specialists. My social media is even populated primarily with Huffington Post, Mind Body Green and The Guardian updates. I see openness and hope all around me.
