Lelia Spada

'The Extraordinary In The Ordinary'

In the last few years Lelia Spada has been working with over 400 individuals through workshops, 1:1’s and courses she delivered for Corporations, communities, schools and individuals. During a long-standing Learning and Development practice in Cisco, she matured into a Business Motivational Coach. Focused on the end-to-end project of hiring and training ‘Generation Y’ Sales Associates students from 55 countries, she blended emotional intelligence, experience and technical skills with her core interests: Generational factors, Education and social trends.

“…a near tragic event brought me to Mindfulness & Compassion”

“Whatever I did as mother or professionally, relating to my children, their education, working in Sales or in Learning & Development, I had to do it with global society evolution in mind.” Then, as it frequently happens in life, it was a deeply challenging, nearly tragic event which brought her to Mindfulness & Compassion. A new personal ambition evolved and the willingness to share its benefits with others, in individuals, groups and company settings. In the last 10 years she has found her mission, as a person and a trainer, in leveraging mainstream science based programs in environments such as Health, Business, Education and Sport.

Lelia teaches in The Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland and, when necessary, via online video platforms.

Its not atypical to hear Lelia Spada mention  humbly:
In the beginning its typically "I realize I had no clue of the meaning of Compassion and Self-Compassion" and what provides me with a sense of job satisfaction is...

"this course has changed my life" ...and they stay around!

My thoughts

In my training I aim at diversity, looking for people who wouldn’t be able to even come across these opportunities for ‘rewiring the mind ’. So many participants write ‘ I found my freedom‘

When I hear life changing statements from my clients it keeps me going on together with being recognized for my embodiment of the practice.

Your future

‘I am learning from your direct experience’… these courses are not techniques, people receive guidance, facilitation to find their own life recipe. The statement en-capsules thousands of hours of study, research, practice and application, finally re-learning.

We live in environments where stress is unavoidable, rather than intrinsically caused. At work, in education, individuals who work health care or even patients, and of course the justice system; mindfulness is the ideal medium to enable us to become aware of stress, its causes and help us better cope and even thrive in these toxic environments.
