My Story

As I was nearing my big 3-0, I asked myself: "Is this it?" Will I be a business consultant for the rest of my life? And for WHAT exactly? To climb up the corporate ladder in exchange of Exhaustion, Stress and constant lack of Time... ? At that moment, I knew I did not belong there anymore.

What was my END GOAL in life? I decided that I needed to figure out my PURPOSE in life, no matter what was going to happen. Along my journey I stumbled upon the ancient Greek concept of EUDAIMONIA, which became the cornerstone of my coaching. Since then, I am devoted to helping people ENJOY their WORK. My purpose is to DEMOCRATISE Human Flourishing.

I'm interested in social entrepreneurship, innovation, the power of modern networks, leadership and Greece’s socioeconomic recovery. I am energised by problem solving and the art of Continuous Improvement (Kaizen).

Business coaching

4 years experience

I’ve worked with hundreds of startups or early-stage business owners. I help my clients figure out their business model (identify / maximise their revenue streams). Identifying blind spots also helps them build the necessary capability missing or focus on playing to their strength. Often, new business owners are overwhelmed and don’t know what is important. I can support them to make these decisions. Together, we figure out how to organise your business to help you invest your time and resources wisely. Most importantly, I keep my clients accountable and committed to their goals and dreams.

Life Purpose coaching

We often just talk about life purpose when someone is going through a midlife CRISIS or BURNOUT. I believe that every human being has the fundamental need to know what they are meant to do in this life. When I work with my clients, I share my hard-earned wisdom and help them navigate this Self-Discovery Journey step-by-step, until they PINPOINT their PURPOSE. I adjust to their pace and tailor my coaching to match their specific needs. My interventions are tried and tested and ultimately will save you TIME, MONEY and WORRY.

Reviews

Elina Kivinen

"I'm in the process of trying to set up a micro business, and following my coaching sessions with Christina I now feel much better prepared for doing this. Christina tailored the sessions to achieve what I needed and pitched the content at just the right level. I got much, much more out of the process than I had expected or hoped for - it's difficult to summarise succinctly, but I got everything I knew I needed, plus lots of other things I didn't realise I needed! It was extremely useful and exceeded my expectations."


Chryssanthi Dafopoulou

"Sometimes and on very rare occasions you meet some people that you feel you can open up your heart to and they will not only understand you but magically transform everything for the better. They will turn the hard work you have to do in a seemingly miniscule effort, which will be fun too. This is Christina Garidi, a true rare gem that I am happy to have found. Christina thank you for helping me realize my dreams. Still, a lot to do but ever so happy to have a person and coach like you by my side!"


Nasos Papadopoulos

"Christina is outstanding at what she does. Her ability to look at problems from a business and human perspective led to some great insights, and she always goes the extra mile to make sessions as productive as possible. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for coaching."
